Lawyer Referral & Information Service

Referral Process and Information

Attorneys in Our Program: Participation in our program is voluntary for attorneys. Because of this, we do not have attorneys in every specialty area nor can we guarantee a referral will be accepted.  Dependent on many factors obtaining a referral (if accepted by an attorney) may take several days.  We screen all our attorneys for ongoing education and relevant case work. All our attorneys are insured and are in good standing with the Colorado Supreme Court, which licenses and regulates attorneys in the state. All of our attorneys charge customary rates and fees: Hourly average: $200-$300 Possible Retainer Fees: $2,000-$15,000 

Referral Process: The referral process may take several days, though we are working to provide a faster service for you. Our service is appropriate for people interested in hiring an attorney. Please provide a description of events with dates and names of other parties involved in your legal matter. The attorney will decide whether or not they may be of help based on your summary and conflict checks. Attorneys are not to accept referrals that are not in their practice area.  They will also not accept referrals if they do not have the availability to consult within a reasonable amount of time.

Once an attorney accepts your referral, you will be sent their name and phone number. You will need to call their office to schedule an appointment. They will be given your name and phone number as well so they can verify you were referred by us and are entitled to a free 30-minute consultation per our agreement.

During this time, you may explain your situation in more detail to the attorney and discuss the fees the attorney would charge you after the initial 30 minutes have passed. Please be aware that our attorneys are under no obligation to provide general legal advice during this consultation. It is merely an opportunity for the attorney to assess your case, provide you with information about your legal options and for you to determine if the attorney is a good fit to represent you.  

If for some reason a referral cannot be made through our program, we will notify you with that information as well.

Referral Fee: We charge a $40 referral fee when an attorney accepts your referral request. When processing your referral, a hold of $40 will be placed on the authorized credit or debit card. If you are matched with an attorney, the $40 will be withdrawn. If you are not matched with an attorney, the $40 hold will be released. Due to different bank policies, a release time cannot be stated. 

Contingency Cases:Please do not enter payment information for contingency cases (ex: personal injury, bankruptcy, social security appeals, worker's compensation).
