Legal Funding and Disbursement Options

TriMark Legal Funding has a variety of customizable funding programs.

Plaintiffs and their attorneys can benefit from pre-settlement and post-settlement funding by tapping into some of their lawsuit settlement proceeds before their cases settle.
Funds delivery options: Wire transfer/ACH, FedEx, MoneyGram, USPS and Western Union.

For Plaintiffs

One-Time Lump Sum

This is the most popular type of legal funding we offer. A lump sum lawsuit cash advance is a one-time funding disbursement on a pending case. Lump sum funding can occur multiple times if more funding is needed as a case progresses toward settlement as long as the case value supports multiple funding.

On pending cases, TriMark can fund up to 20% of a case’s anticipated net value (after attorney fees, case costs, medical liens, etc.)

Periodic Recurring Disbursements

A recurring disbursement is set up once and then automatically disburses a predetermined dollar amount into the plaintiff’s bank account. Funding occurs on a regular basis; usually around the 1st of each month.

Recurring disbursements are reserved for high-value cases with debilitating or severe, life-altering injuries. It acts as a partial or full income replacement for a primary breadwinner who is unable to work or will never return to work.

TriMark will perform a thorough case evaluation in order to determine if your case is a candidate for recurring disbursement funding. Please specify that you would like recurring disbursements in the comment section of the application.

Pre-Settlement Funding

Pre settlement lawsuit loans are available on any type of eligible pending case. It only takes about 30 seconds to see if your case qualifies for pre-settlement funding.

Pending cases present more investment risk from a repayment standpoint due to the uncertainty of any number of factors. The rates are commensurate with the level of risk.

Rather than a standard one-size-fits-all approach like other lawsuit funding companies take, TriMark has the flexibility to customize its funding offers depending upon the specific type of case, strength of liability, venue or location and other factors.

Post-Settlement Funding

This is a one-time funding that is available on any type of settled case. It is disbursed as a one-time lump sum. Because settled cases present far less risk from a repayment standpoint, the rates and fees are generally lower than pre settlement funding due to a known disbursement date. It takes less than 30 seconds to see if your case qualifies for post-settlement funding.

On settled cases, TriMark can fund up to 50% of a case’s anticipated net value (after attorney fees, case costs, medical liens, etc.)

Workers Compensation Settlement Funding

Pre settlement lawsuit loans are available on state workers compensation claims in eligible states. We do not offer funding on federal workers compensation cases. It only takes about 30 seconds to see if your workers comp case qualifies for a pre-settlement loan.

Workers comp loans are some of the quickest and easiest types of case funding we offer. With attorney cooperation, 12-24 hour funding is normal.

On work comp cases, TriMark can fund up to 20% of a case’s anticipated net value (after attorney fees, case costs, medical liens, etc.)

For Attorneys

Attorney Fee Acceleration

Also known as an “attorney fee advance”, this is the purchase of an earned but as-of-yet unreceived attorney fee. This type of advance occurs during the period of time between when a case is settled,  i.e. a “meeting of the minds” has been reached, and when the attorney physically receives the actual settlement check from the defendant’s insurance company and deposits it.

Depending on the type of case and the defendant’s disposition, this can be anywhere from a week to six months or more.

Fee acceleration is designed to regulate a law firm’s cash flow and working capital, thus giving attorneys the ability to invest money from their last case into their next case without actually having to wait until their fees arrive.

Law Firm Funding

Also known as “Lawyer Loans”, Attorney Loans” or “Law Firm Loans”, this is a formal business loan that requires a full underwriting review to evaluate and value the firm’s entire book of business for use as collateral.

For Heirs and Inheritance Beneficiaries

Inheritance Loans | Probate Loans

Also known as an “Heir Advance” or  an “Inheritance Cash Advance”, this is a purchase of a portion of the assets in a probate or pending inheritance.

For Annuitants with a Structured Settlement

Sell Structured Settlement Payments

Also known as a “structured settlement buyout”, this is the purchase of all, or almost any portion, of the future payments due to be paid on a structured settlement annuity. Structured settlements are long-term annuities with pre-set disbursement dates. Payments eligible for sale can be weekly, monthly, annually or periodic lump sums or any combination of those.

Depending on their financial goals, annuitants can sell all, some, or just a portion of some of their future payments in exchange for cash. Selling annuity payments requires a court order to reassign the payment recipient and this, depending upon jurisdiction and court docket, can take anywhere from 30 to 90 days to complete.
