I looked at my billables and I generated alot of money for the firm. However, I only get paid a small fraction of it.

If I go out on my own, is it very hard to find clients?
I have seen lawyers clandestinely handing out their name cards to applicants at community pro bono centers even though doing so is prohibited. Some of these centers pay a decent honorarium (250 - 350 for 2.5-3 hours?). I guess that's a way of building one's books?

If I get caught giving out name cards, what is the penalty? Will they report me to law society? It seems hard getting good paying clients at such places. Most of them are suckers looking for free legal advice.

I wonder if it is against professional conduct rules to pay referral fees to other small firms to refer their clients to me, assuming that these firms do not practice litigation?

Not sure if they will report you to law soc apart from blacklisting you. But then again, most of these centers are run by employees/volunteers who defer to the lawyers, closing an eye whenever such things happen.

From my previous experience as a student volunteer several years back, some of these suckers wouldn't mind paying if they are roused up enough and the "estimated" costs fall within their budget. Guess this is the reason why some 20-30 PQE sole props are still actively involved in these projects.
