About TriMark Legal Funding

TriMark Legal Funding was founded in 2003 and serves clients throughout the United States. Before their cases are settled, we provide personal injury victims with some of their anticipated injury settlement money from car accident settlements, slip and fall settlements, etc. Clients can use the money to pay bills, car loans, medical expenses, rent or mortgage, buy groceries, and meet their other financial obligations. TriMark’s funding is non-recourse, meaning clients are not obligated to repay the money they received unless and until their case is resolved successfully.
