Need a legal memorandum summarizing the legal referral fee rules for each state.

The goal is to identify the states that have the most lenient legal referral fee rules, such as Virginia, which allows referring attorneys to collect referral fees without taking responsibility for the case outcome (or potential malpractice).

The memo should categorize the states in three groups, such as the following: 1) states not allowing referral fees or imposing strict rules; 2) states allowing referral fees so long as the referring attorney takes responsibility for the case (i.e. opens himself up to malpractice, such as Florida); and 3) states that allow referral fees without referral attorney involvement or responsibility (such as Virginia).

The paper should identify the states on the first category, but only write briefly about them. A bit more time should be spent on the second category, but not too much. And the meat of the paper should be spent on the states in the third category.
