New Orleans, Louisiana Attorney Referral Program

Have you gotten a call from a potential client, or the family of an individual that was seriously injured due to the negligence of another person or business?

How are you going to handle it?

Perhaps you’ve never handled a personal injury claim – or you don’t have the time or desire to learn everything you need to know in order to handle the complexities of a personal injury claim.

Maybe you’re a solo practitioner who does a bit of personal injury work, but are not comfortable dealing with product liability, medical malpractice, wrongful death claims or other injury matters because you lack the resources or experience needed to handle large, complex personal injury litigation.

If that is the case, your best alternative is to pick up the phone and discover how we can help.

My name is Mike Gertler. I am a managing partner and one of the founders of the Gertler Law Firm – a New Orleans Personal Injury Law Firm.

Because of our solid reputation within the Louisiana legal community, a significant number of our cases are referred to us by other law firms.

Why Have The Gertler Law Firm As Lead Counsel?

Is it in your best interest – and the best interest of your client to refer the case out?

Or, would it make more sense to keep the case in-house and hope you can provide adequate representation?

It is a decision you will have to make. But consider this – do you really want to spend an extraordinary amount of time learning a new area of law…. and be concerned about a potential legal malpractice claim should your counsel be less than effective?

Most attorneys want to do the right thing for their client. And most attorneys would like the business relationship formed by that referral to be lucrative for their firm as well.

We make the age-old dilemma of client referrals versus profits a thing of the past.

We view the joint representation of clients as both a logical and practical way for attorneys with little or no personal injury experience to meet their client’s expectations while significantly increasing their chances of earning a substantial fee.

I thank you for visiting our website…. and if you need the help of an experienced New Orleans Personal Injury Law Firm to assist you and your client, please do call us at 504-581-6411, or 877-581-6411 if the call is long distance.


While both firms will maintain joint responsibility, the Gertler Law Firm will assume lead counsel with the referring attorney rendering meaningful legal services for the client as well. All agreements are in accordance with Rule 1.5(e) of the Louisiana Rules of Professional Conduct.
