TriMark Legal Funding Has You Covered

TriMark Legal Funding has been providing lawsuit cash advances to injured people with pending and settled lawsuits since 2003. Legal funding is a fast, economical way to pay your bills and overcome financial challenges without creating debt.

A car accident or other serious personal injury can derail your life and create untold financial hardships. Lawsuit funding is a fast, risk-free way to conquer those hardships and get your life back on track.

You can use a lawsuit settlement advance for rent, utilities, insurance, medical expenses, or anything else you need before your lawsuit settles.

And all that happens with no credit check, no upfront fees, and no monthly payments either.

What Is Legal Funding?

Plain and simple; legal funding is smart, flexible, debt-free money.

When you’re struggling financially, the last thing you need is more damaged credit or another monthly payment to make. Lawsuit funding is unique because there are no monthly payments, and approval doesn’t rely on your credit score.

Most importantly, lawsuit loans can put you back in control of your finances quickly, without racking up any more debt.

Credit cards, credit card cash advances, payday loans, title loans, bank loans, and home equity loans all create debt. Each time you use one, you’re generating another financial obligation that you will eventually have to repay, with interest.

Lawsuit funding doesn’t do that.

Legal Funding Can Harness the Future

A lawsuit advance leverages the power of a future asset, your settlement money. You can then use that asset to pay bills and eliminate debt here in the present. And because it’s your money, you are free to use it right when and where you need it most.

After your case has settled, you’ll still receive your settlement money, minus the advanced funds. You can then move confidently into the next chapter of your life, unencumbered by a lingering mountain of debt.

Legal funding is commonly referred to by many names such as “lawsuit loans, “pre-settlement funding,” and “settlement loans,” but the truth is, it isn’t a loan at all.

On the contrary, it is a non-recourse, outcome-contingent lawsuit cash advance on a portion of your anticipated settlement award. It’s your money, just in advance, and how you use it is entirely up to you.

“Non-recourse, outcome-contingent” means it is 100% risk-free. It also means you don’t have to pay it back unless, and until, you win your lawsuit. If you lose or your case doesn’t settle, you keep the money, pay $0, and owe nothing.

Frequently Asked Questions

Litigation funding provides access to a small portion of a future asset - your settlement money - so you can pay bills and eliminate debt in the present. It is unlike credit cards, bank loans, payday loans, title loans, or home equity loans. Lawsuit loans are unique because they do not create additional debt or monthly payments when you use it.

Typical uses include catching up on bills and reducing monthly expenditures by paying off credit card balances, car loans, etc.

Most types of civil litigation may be eligible for a lawsuit cash advance against the future value of an anticipated lawsuit settlement. The case must meet the following three conditions: 1). The plaintiff must have received significant injuries. 2). A contingent fee attorney must represent the plaintiff. 3). Clear liability against a sufficiently insured defendant.

The company you choose will have a significant impact on the amount of money you ultimately receive from your settlement. The four most important factors to consider when you are researching pre-settlement funding companies are experience, integrity, rates, and caps.

1. Above All Else, Choose Experience and Integrity. ANYONE can work a "side hustle" from their basement, buy a flashy website, say they're "the best," and pay Google a few hundred dollars to appear at the top of a search results page. But that does not translate into experience, integrity, a non-criminal background, or even safety for your money. Be careful about who you choose. Reputable, trustworthy pre-settlement funding companies take many years to build. You should protect yourself and your money by doing a bit of research. Check the Better Business Bureau website for each company you are considering. Here are several things to watch out for:
  • All legitimate companies have a BBB file. If a company you're researching doesn't have a BBB file, find another company.
  • Check the business start date and BBB rating. If a company is less than 10-15 years old or if their rating is anything other than "A+," find another company.
  • THIS STEP IS CRITICAL: The most important data the BBB provides is the name of owners, partners, etc. You will avoid white-collar criminals working in this or any other industry by searching each name on Google with the "consumer financial protection bureau," "scam," or "fraud" added to each search. If the owners have a history of fraud, deception, or other illegal behavior, you'll find out about it on Google. Founded in 2003, TriMark has a spotless owner profile, and proudly bears the BBB's highest A+ rating.
2. Rates. Non-compounding rates are the least expensive option and will consume far less of your settlement over time. That means more money in your pocket once your case is over. Monthly compounding rates, especially uncapped rates, can get very expensive because they charge interest on top of interest, month after month, until you pay it off. They can skyrocket your payback to 3, 4, or even 5+ times the amount you received. The longer it takes to settle a case, the more expensive compounding rates will become. 3. Capped Rates (Caps). A rate cap is a built-in safety feature, and only established, trustworthy funding companies have them. If the company you're considering does not have capped rates, preferably 2X capped rates, walk away. A rate cap establishes, upfront, and in writing, the maximum amount you could ever be required to pay back. That is critical information to have. You will know, starting Day 1, the most your advance could cost. It can always cost less, but it can never cost even a penny more, no matter how long it takes. Here's how capped rates work: If the funded amount of an advance were $2,000 and had a 2X rate cap, the maximum possible repayment would be $4,000. With a 3X rate cap, it would be $6,000. Capped rates are there to protect you, regardless of how long it takes your case to settle. Without a rate cap, there is no way to know upfront how much you will eventually have to pay back until your case settles. And by then it's too late. You wouldn't agree to an open-ended payback on a car loan or home loan, so don't agree to it with a lawsuit loan either. Uncapped rates could consume most, or even all, of your settlement proceeds, and you would be powerless to stop it. TriMark has a standard rate cap of 2X. For high-risk cases, it is 3X.

We can send your money to you by your choice of wire transfer, FedEx Overnight, MoneyGram, or VISA Debit Card. Funding can occur in as little as 1 to 24 hours after approval. After a case is approved, we send a DocuSign (E-signature) funding agreement to the plaintiff and their attorney. If the contract is executed and returned before 2 pm EST Monday through Friday (holidays excluded), funds go the same day. If it is received after 2 pm EST Monday through Friday, funds will go the next business day.

On most pending cases, TriMark charges less than 3% non-compounding per month, with a 2X rate cap for your safety. On settled cases, we charge a little over 2% non-compounding per month. On workers comp, higher-risk, and minimal injury cases, we charge 2.99%, compounded monthly, w3X. The American Legal Finance Association (ALFA) is the trade association that represents the leading consumer litigation funding companies across the country. ALFA has provided a detailed explanation of rates here: "Consumer Legal Funding Rates, Explained."

TriMark offers lawsuit cash advances from $500 to $5,000,000+ depending on the value of a case. We can advance up to 20% of the anticipated net value of a case. Net value = underwriter's estimate of gross settlement minus attorney fees, case costs, medical liens, etc. You do not have to take the full 20% if you don't need it, but as a general rule, we will not usually exceed 20%.

No. Representation by a contingent fee attorney is mandatory. Pro bono and pro se representation are also ineligible.

Legal Funding and Big Insurance

Big insurance doesn’t like litigation funding

Lawsuits can take a long time to settle. Over time, the insurance industry has earned a reputation for exploiting that fact; for their financial gain.

The industry’s “art of delay” has become so prevalent that to shed some light on it, the American Association for Justice released a report called “Tricks of the Trade: How Insurance Companies Deny, Delay, Confuse and Refuse.”

The Irony of Settlement Loans

The irony of litigation funding is that big insurance did it to themselves.

Pre-settlement funding and post-settlement funding have exploded in popularity in recent years due primarily to two factors. Ironically, both of them are entirely within an insurance company’s ability to control. They are:

  1. Length of time it takes to settle personal injury claims.
  2. Most insurers refuse to offer full, fair compensation up-front.

Low-ball offers and corporate foot-dragging leave many plaintiffs with only two options; sign their rights away for a pennies-on-the-dollar offer, or “lawyer-up” and pick a fight with a multi-million dollar insurance corporation. The latter can take anywhere from 6 months to 3 years or more.

From Obscurity to Main Street

Ten years ago, litigation finance was a virtual unknown. According to Verisk, a corporate risk management company, litigation finance grew 414 percent in the US between 2013 and 2017. When they announced: “litigation funding could be another obstacle for profitability,” it captured the insurance industry’s full attention.

The predominant fear of big insurance seems to be that if a third-party investor believes a case is strong enough to invest in, then evidently they think it could win. That could act as an endorsement of sorts, and give the lawsuit greater legitimacy and give the plaintiffs greater resolve.

Legitimacy and resolve, they fear, could translate into significantly more leverage for plaintiffs and substantially less wiggle room for insurance companies.

Verisk’s announcement also got people thinking that what’s bad for insurers might just be excellent for plaintiffs if it helped “level the playing field.”

As it turns out, “leveling the playing field” is precisely what pre-settlement funding does best.
