Personal Injury in Miami
Since 1986, numerous attorneys and law firms from Florida, California, New York, Washington D.C., and other states have referred cases to our Miami-based personal injury law firm. Jeffrey R. Davis P.A. welcomes the opportunity to speak with other attorneys regarding potential case referrals.
Please call us at (305) 577-3777 to discuss prospective co-counsel and other case referral arrangements.
The firm has collaborated with other attorneys in both state and federal court litigation for complex litigation, to specifically handle personal injury claims linked with other types of claims, and occasionally simply to relieve pressure from time or resource constraints.
Jeffrey R. Davis P.A. has collaborated with other attorneys and law firms in the following practice areas:
- Admiralty Claims
- Airplane Crashes
- Automobile Accidents
- Class Action Suits
- Medical Malpractice
- Nursing Home Injuries/Abuse
- Insurance Bad Faith Actions

- Food Poisoning
We offer referral fee and joint venture arrangements that conform to Florida Bar regulations while properly reflecting the division of labor and risk involved in a given case collaboration.
See Florida Bar Rule 4-1.5(f)(4)(D) for specific guidelines on the reasonable division of fees between lawyers in different firms, whether based on collaboration with primary and secondary responsibility, or substantially equal active participation. The basic standard for division of fees is as follows:
- Minimum of 75% of the total fee to the lawyer assuming primary responsibility.
- Maximum of 25% of the total fee to the lawyer assuming secondary responsibility.
- If equal active participation, the 25% limitation shall not apply. Counsel must apply to the court for authorization of the fee division contract.
See Florida Bar Rule 4-1.5(g) for minimum requirements that must be met before any division of fees may take place.
