Our 18-month Referral Fee Report

Our law firm exclusively represents workers in wage and overtime litigation.  Our cases range from “single-plaintiff” lawsuits worth a few thousand dollars to class action lawsuits worth millions.  We have enjoyed great success by focusing on the quality – rather than the size – of our client’s claims.

Many of our cases are referred to us by our friends at other law firms.  As a result, we have had the great pleasure of writing hundreds of referral fee checks to fellow lawyers.  We enjoy paying referral fees and we always pay a fair referral fee.

We are happy to provide you with this “18-Month Referral Fee Report.”  It summarizes the various referral fees we’ve paid between January 1, 2016 and July 20, 2017.  During this 18-month period, we’ve paid referral fees in 42 cases totaling $405,515.  These referral fees range from a high of $109,259 to a low of $500.  If you have referred us clients in the past, thanks so much.

The following table summarizes the types of wage/overtime claims that have generated referral fees over the past 18 months.  We hope this information will give you a “flavor” for the types of claims we handle:
