If you are an attorney with a client who has needs outside of the scope of your practice, Nicolet Law Accident & Injury Lawyers will gladly collaborate with you to get the solution you and your client need. We focus on injury cases and disability claims, so you can turn to us when these topics arise for your clients (either as stand-alone issues or in conjunction with another legal matter).
While we are happy to assist our fellow attorneys when their clients have needs in these areas, we always respect existing attorney-client relationships. We can serve as advisers and advocates for your clients, while still helping them understand that you play an integral role in the ongoing legal services they receive.
We accept referrals in the following practice areas:
There are many reasons a lawyer or law firm may choose not to represent an individual in a case or cannot move forward as a client’s legal representation in their current case. Maybe your firm is worried about the resources necessary to take on a deep-pocketed defendant, or your client has an excellent workers’ comp or personal injury case and your firm doesn’t handle those types of cases.
While it may not happen often, you want a plan for when it does. B2B attorney referrals allow you to refer clients to a knowledgeable and trustworthy attorney and firm when needed without closing their doors to other options. Clients will remember that you kept their best interests a priority, and you helped them even if your office chose not to take or continue with a case personally. Additionally, at Nicolet Law we love to co-counsel with other attorneys who want to bring in a firm like ours that focuses on injury law cases.
Our attorneys and staff and Nicolet Law Accident & Injury Lawyers appreciate it when another firm chooses to refer their clients to us. We understand how difficult it can be to realize you must refer a client to another firm for their case to move forward successfully.
As a lawyer, you work hard to help those in your community, but sometimes a case beyond your expertise or the firm’s resources may come across your door. If this happens, contact Nicolet Law Accident & Injury Lawyers. We can work with you to provide professional, knowledgeable, and experienced legal representation to a client in a personal injury matter to help them get the compensation they deserve.
You know that making a referral is not a matter of just opening up a search engine on the internet and checking who is nearby. It is a thorough and calculated decision that you must take seriously to protect your reputation and your relationship with the referring client.
At Nicolet Law Accident & Injury Lawyers, we have helped many clients with their personal injury matters to reach favorable resolutions in their cases and compensation for the harm they have suffered at the hands of negligent individuals and entities.
When you refer a client to us, you refer them to a firm with experience and knowledge in personal injury matters and the resources to fight for their rights against insurance companies and at-fault parties.
“As an attorney, I want to make sure that when I refer a case outside my area of expertise, the client is in good hands. I look for three qualities in attorneys I am considering for a referral: 1) Expertise in the areas of law they practice, 2) Their ability to communicate effectively yet compassionately with clients who are experiencing trying times, and last but not least, 3) Their ability to get MAXIMUM results. I recommend Russell Nicolet for all of your Personal Injury and Bankruptcy needs for exactly these reasons.” – Referring Attorney
Here is a common example involving bankruptcy and divorce: These two issues often go hand in hand, as the financial turmoil of divorce can lead to a bankruptcy filing. When a client goes to a family law attorney, the client may not consider this fact or realize the ways that bankruptcy can help. In these situations, our peers who practice family law (but not bankruptcy) have sent clients to our firm so that we can help with the bankruptcy process while they focus on the divorce case. Our attorneys handle the debt issues; they handle family law issues.
By working together like this, we help to ensure that your clients receive the full-service representation they need while preserving the trust and attorney-client relationship you worked so hard to build.

After years of experience in personal injury matters and successful outcomes in many cases at Nicolet Law Accident & Injury Lawyers, we have built a base of resources to take on prominent defendants and complex cases in personal injury matters. An involved case can require significant time and money to represent appropriately. Smaller firms may not have that luxury, and taking on a case beyond its capacity which can result in less than what is fair for an injured client.
When you do not have prior experience in an area of the law, everything takes more time. Time is money and every minute spent trying to figure out a case you are not familiar with is a minute you are losing that you could spend your efforts representing clients in the area of the law and cases you are most comfortable with.
By strategically referring a case to another firm, you free up your time and money to take on more cases you want to represent, and additionally can even earn fees in a referral fee/co-counsel relationship with Nicolet Law as allowed per the rules of professional conduct.
