Lawyers to Michigan Supreme Court: Handle referral fees to protect accident victims

Injury lawyer tells Michigan Lawyers Weekly that discouraging lawyer referrals is damaging to the public

Michigan Auto Law was quoted in a Michigan Lawyers Weekly story on proposed changes to court rules on attorney referral fees.

He also said the amendment would hurt small firms and solo practitioners who rely on work from larger firms with budgets that are large enough to advertise.
