Lawyer Referral Service Agreement
I am an active member in good standing of the Bar Association of the District of Columbia and the District of Columbia Bar.  I agree to see clients referred to me by the BADC LRS for a 1/2 hour initial consultation and if a case results from it to remit to the BADC percentage fees pursuant to the BADC LRS Rules and Regulations.  I authorize the Grievance Committee of the DC Bar to release any information about me to the BADC's LRS.  I understand the the LRS is not a provider of legal services and does not carry malpractice insurance.  As a participating attorney, I will be solely responsible for all legal services provided to referral clients.  I have included the cover page of my Errors and Omissions Insurance Policy and will submit the same to the BADC for each year I am a member of the LRS panel.
