Taking Cases in States Not Admitted
Have a question for everyone regarding thoughts on working on out of state client cases. In order to work in a state in which you are not admitted, you have to associate with counsel that is admitted in that state and split the fee (can't charge the client more than what he'd pay for just one lawyer).
What are everyone's thoughts on that? Is this something you do and under what circumstances?
A lot of out of state clients find me on the internet, through social media and articles I am writing, and I am not sure what to do with all of these cases. I really hate to turn away clients but not sure if its worth it to associate with counsel in another state. Additionally, is there a way to make any money on sending these cases to other attorneys? Not sure if I even want to do that but curious.
What do you all think?
