Why Refer Your Personal Injury Case to Hardy Wolf & Downing?

Whether to refer a case to another lawyer is a hard decision. The referring lawyer has to consider the practical and ethical consequences of that choice.

Why let Hardy Wolf & Downing handle your personal injury case?

We specialize in personal injury cases exclusively.

We promise to keep you in the loop the whole way and pay a full referral fee when completed.

• We have local experts who can assist in building the case.

• We have extensive litigation experience in prosecuting nearly every type of personal injury matter.

• We successfully litigated and resolved thousands of injury cases.

You will stop getting exorbitant bills from experts for reports, stop facing deadlines staring you in the face when you have a busy practice, and stop worrying about all the headaches that go along with a serious personal injury case.

You get a fee and incur no overhead.

And, with the time you’ve saved, you can focus on your core business.

Our firm started as a general practice: divorce, felony trials, bankruptcy, personal injury, and whatever else showed up. We enjoyed the variety but soon learned that we should concentrate on what we do best - personal injury - and for the past 30 years, that’s just what we’ve done.

If you have personal injury cases which crowd out your schedule or keep you up at night, we can sympathize. We would not handle a complex land transaction or a complex divorce without a lot of review and research.

With this in mind, we can offer you the benefit of our experience and economies of scale. By focusing exclusively on personal injury cases for so long, there are few obstacles we haven’t overcome and few tricks we haven’t seen. We know the law, the players, and the pitfalls. For over 45 years, our firm has handled more than ten thousand injury cases, litigating thousands of them, and collected hundreds of millions for our clients. And we’ve paid hundreds of thousands of dollars to referring counsel.

If you're a lawyer interested in referring a case or a client, please contact us, regardless of the litigation process stage.

We take referrals very seriously. We understand that it’s not just our reputation on the line—it’s yours too. You can trust us to do high-quality work for your client. Our partners are involved in every aspect of plaintiff’s injury law, including serving as leaders in the Maine Trial Lawyers Association and advocating for legislative changes to help injured Mainers. Every one of our lawyers knows the ins and outs of the litigation process through extensive experience.  

We’d love to work with you, but whether we do or not, you should feel free to call any of us with questions about a case, and we’ll give you advice on proceeding—no charge and no obligation! Next time you get a personal injury case where we can work together, give us a call.

I was referred to Sheldon Tepler at Hardy Wolf & Downing by another law firm after a consultation. Sheldon met with me immediately and set many of my worries to rest regarding my lost wages and medical bills as a result of a car accident. I'm a very visual person, I need to see words rather than hear them and it was such a relief to have options to communicate with my attorney any time I had questions or concerns rather than an occasional phone call. I felt like I was truly being taken care of as I could shoot an email to Sheldon to discuss my case and I always received a prompt response. Thank you Sheldon Tepler and Hardy Wolf and Downing
