Referring a client forward

Professional (meaning Advocates, Lawyers, Legal Interns, LLLTs) can refer a client forward to another professional using the followings

Step 1: From the dashboard click “Refer”

Step 2: Enter the lawyer email

This should be the same email used by the lawyer to register the Legalatoms account

Experience for the Receiving Professional

The receiving professional will see the following notifications

An Email

  1. a notification in the LegalAtoms website

Notice the client also appears on your main dashboard, just like any client who opts to connect with you. You have the option to Accept or Decline.

Limitations

  • Right now the correct e-mail has to be entered. In future we will make it more friendly to have auto-complete based on professional name
  • The lawyer referring out a client will not get a notification in case the lawyer receiving the referral accepts or declines. We will be adding a notification for that
  • The lawyer referring out a client will continue to see the client on their dashboard without any change i.e. they will not lose access. This is good and bad and we will refine this behavior.
