Our attorneys at Kibbey Wagner Injury & Car Accident Lawyers Stuart have 80 years of combined experience and are qualified to help with any case in the personal injury and criminal law fields.
As a result of our expertise, we often have clients referred to us by other lawyers. This often happens when the case is especially complex or requires a lawyer with significant courtroom experience and trial experience.
What Stage of the Case Should You Associate With Us?
It’s best – but not necessary – to refer your case to us as early on as possible. That way, we can get going by conducting an investigation into the case, hiring expert assistance, filing the necessary pleadings in court, undertaking pretrial discovery, and any other required steps. However, we’re able to assist at any point in the process.
We also accept referral cases no matter the extent to which you’d like our assistance. We can help during the settlement process, attend meditation hearings, or at any stage of litigation, including trial.
Fee-Sharing With Referring Lawyers
Our legal team highly values our relationships with other attorneys. We happily fee-share with referring lawyers as per the relevant rules outlined in the Rules of Professional Conduct.
Note that there are special considerations for personal injury cases based on contingency fees. For instance, the primary lawyer must get at least 75% of the fee, and the secondary lawyer no more than 25%. However, it is possible to petition the court to adjust this under certain circumstances.

One of our lead attorneys, Jordan R. Wagner, is Board Certified in Civil Trial Law and is also a former insurance defense attorney.

Contact Us Today for More Information About Referring Your Client
We understand that a lot is at stake if you consider referring a client to us. You might also have questions about how the process works. Here are a few things to note about what we can do once you decide to move forward with the referral:
- We will immediately get in touch with the client and do everything we can to ensure the transition goes as smoothly as possible.
- If applicable, we’re generally willing to pay all the costs of the case, such as expert fees, filing fees, evidence-gathering procedures, and more.
- We can be as much or as little involved in the case as you’d like. We can take over the litigation of the case completely or offer our services in a more limited capacity, such as by participating in depositions or negotiations.
- Once the case is resolved, we will make sure you are paid as soon as possible. Oftentimes, this means you’ll receive payment on the same day that we do.
