Why Should You Choose McKenzie Scott for Your Referral or Co-Counsel Needs?

When you secure the experienced team of trial lawyers at McKenzie Scott through a referral or co-counsel arrangement, the benefits include:
  • The most competitive attorney referral fees anywhere: we pay up to 50%* depending on case type and stage. (*all fee division agreements must fully comply with relevant State Bar rules).
  • Transparent and fair written fee agreements that comply with all applicable State Bar rules.
  • One-stop for overlapping practice areas: McKenzie Scott’s trial attorneys provide aggressive criminal defense (including white-collar crime, federal crimes, fraud, murder, and sex crimes) and we pursue civil rights claims when the prosecution is the result of government overreach. Of course, we gladly accept attorney referrals for stand-alone police in-custody death cases, police brutality, police misconduct, excessive force, illegal search and seizure, and other civil rights cases as well as catastrophic personal injury accidents.
  • Record-setting results. Our victories reflect our passion, dedication, and skill. For example, McKenzie Scott served as lead trial counsel in a recent $85 million in-custody police wrongful death verdict -the largest-ever of its kind.
  • A flexible approach to collaboration – we’re available to be retained as co-counsel at any point throughout the litigation process.
