A Win for Attorneys Who Receive Clients from Referral Services

The Connecticut Laaw Journal reports that the Connecticut Statewide Grievance Committee has dismissed complaints against five Connecticut attorneys who have done business with Total Attorneys Inc. of Chicago.  A Norwich, Conn., bankruptcy attorney filed grievances against 12 attorneys in Connecticut and more than 550 attorneys in 47 total states claiming that attorneys participating in the Total Attorneys network are paying for referrals, which is a felony offense in this state.  Committee members would not comment on the decision until the full-length decision is released in about two weeks time.

Total Attorneys, Inc,operates numerous Web sites for different practice areas that all work the same way: Attorneys pay $65 to receive leads on potential clients who enter their zip code and other contact information through the Web site.

There's no guarantee that the leads will turn into paying clients. Total Attorneys says its business model allows lawyers, who are mainly solo and small firm practitioners, to pool resources and pay for group advertising online.
