Charles Scholle represents clients in the practice areas of truck, automobile and commercial vehicle accidents, premises liability and products liability. Many of our cases come to our office from referring lawyers. Some of these attorney referrals come from lawyers who do not handle personal injury or contingent fee cases, while others are from personal injury lawyers who do not have the time or resources to properly pursue catastrophic cases.
Our lawyers regularly work with other attorneys and law firms. We would be happy to discuss generous fee sharing agreements in compliance with the Georgia Rules of Professional Conduct. We can also assist in or accept exclusive responsibility for financing expenses in associated cases.
We have a results-oriented approach to pursuing litigation and have obtained numerous large verdicts and settlements for clients of associating attorneys. We work to establish a true co-counsel relationship with our referring lawyers, inviting them to remain involved as little or as much as they choose.
Often, attorneys in different states or jurisdictions contact us about pursuing a Georgia case for one of their clients, or about serving as local counsel. More often, Georgia lawyers contact us about pursuing a truck, bus or commercial vehicle case that occurred in Georgia. Attorneys who specialize in different areas of litigation, or in divorce, bankruptcy, real estate, family law, probate or business law, usually acknowledge when they need to refer a client to a lawyer with an expertise in injury or tort law. Similarly, a lawyer who has handled less complex tort cases may not be as experienced in motor carrier litigation, for instance. Such an attorney might want to associate an attorney who more regularly focuses in this area.
We follow Georgia Rule of Professional Conduct 1.5(e), which holds that clients are best served when lawyers associate attorneys with relevant areas of expertise, while sharing in the responsibility and the fees. We comply fully with Georgia Rule of Professional Conduct 1.5(e), agreeing to share fees in an ethically appropriate manner that balances the responsibility for handling the case.
Our attorneys can serve as lead counsel for out-of-state law firms practicing pro hac vice in Georgia. We are committed to producing superior results by virtue of thorough trial preparation and detailed trial execution, and have garnered numerous verdicts in cases that involved:
- Trucking Accidents
- Automobile Accidents
- Motorcycle Accidents
- Boating Accidents
- Commercial Vehicle Accidents
- Premises Liability
- Hotel and Apartment Liability
Whether we are working with a Georgia attorney or an out-of-state law firm, we are dedicated to providing ethical legal representation focused on achieving excellent results for the clients and all counsel.
