Why Refer to Heller, Maas, Moro & Magill?
Here are a few reasons why you may want to refer a client to our practice:
- You already have a full caseload. Taking on too many clients at once means you can’t devote your full attention and resources to all of them. Your performance decreases, you’re more likely to lose your case – and worst of all, you may let down your client. If you’re overworked, send a potential client our way and let us take them off your hands.
- The case is outside your area of focus. Most lawyers concentrate on one or two practice areas. That is a sound strategy because it means you can focus on honing your craft instead of trying to do a bit of everything. However, you may get a client who needs help with a case that involves an area of the law you’re unfamiliar with. When that happens, the best thing you can do for your client is to refer them to a practice with experience handling whatever case they have.
- You need more resources to tackle the case. Every client is unique, and sometimes meeting their legal needs requires resources that go beyond what you and your firm can offer. That is especially true for lawyers who work in boutique practices or are just starting out. Recognizing your limitations is essential. Referring your client to another firm may be what they need to ensure they get the zealous representation they deserve.
- You aren’t admitted in the state or court involved in the case. If an established client gets into trouble in a state or court where you aren’t licensed to practice, you can’t represent them. Rather than let your client fend for themselves, you can refer them to another attorney who can provide the service they need.
- Our reputation and track record. We’ve received numerous honors from our peers in the legal community and are well-known for providing compassionate, dedicated service to those we represent. If you want to be sure your clients will be taken care of, refer them to us.
Types of Cases That Can Be Referred
The Ohio attorneys at Heller, Maas, Moro & Magill Co., LPA, have extensive knowledge and experience in a wide range of practice areas, including:
- Social Security disability benefits – Given that more than half of all initial claims for Social Security disability benefits are denied, any client filing for disability should get help from someone who knows how to navigate the system. We can help your client fill out the necessary documents, gather their medical records and other information, make sure their claim is filed on time, and assist with any appeals. We’ll work tirelessly to get the benefits your client needs.
- Workers’ compensation – Employers and insurance companies routinely use bad-faith arguments to deny injured workers their rightful benefits after an on-the-job accident. We can help your client navigate the Ohio workers’ comp claims process, make sure their claim is filed on time, assist them with gathering evidence, and file any necessary appeals on their behalf.
- Personal injury – People are injured in accidents every day across Ohio. In many cases, the accident is the result of negligence. If your client was injured due to someone else’s reckless or careless behavior, they deserve the chance to recover fair compensation for their injuries. We’ll help identify who’s liable for your client’s injuries, collect evidence to establish liability, deal with the various insurance companies, and negotiate a reasonable settlement. If necessary, we’re fully prepared to bring a case to trial to fight for your client.
- Veterans benefits – Anyone who has served our country in the armed forces should be compensated appropriately for their service. Unfortunately, too many veterans are denied their rightful benefits due to bureaucratic glitches and other causes. We know how to navigate the VA and help veterans pursue the benefits they’ve earned from their service.
- Criminal defense – No one is in more dire need of a lawyer than someone who has been charged with a crime. When someone’s freedom and future are at stake, we’ll work tirelessly to protect our client’s rights, suppress evidence obtained unlawfully, negotiate for a fair plea deal, or defend them in court.
