Connecticut lawsuit funding is no longer available to help plaintiffs get the money they need to pay bills while their lawsuit is still pending or even after it is settled. But don’t worry; TriMark Legal Funding has you covered.
Legal Funding in Connecticut Is Prohibited By Law
Due to recent legislation passed by the state of Connecticut, TriMark Legal Funding can no longer offer pre settlement loans, pre settlement loan buyouts, post settlement loans, or pre settlement funding on workers compensation claims to residents of the state of Connecticut. If the legislation ever changes and legal funding becomes available in Connecticut again, we will update this page.
It’s OK though; we have an array of “non-legal-funding-related” financial alternatives for you!
For almost two decades now, TriMark Legal Funding has maintained a network of private lenders and financiers that can provide a wide array of financial solutions to our clients and would-be clients who, like you, were denied because they live in one of the states that legal funding is prohibited in, or has significant restrictions or limitations in place, or workers comp funding is not available.
Either that, or their case was ineligible for legal funding for some reason, their attorney wouldn’t cooperate, they had excessive prior funding, or they didn’t qualify for as much funding as they needed.
Whatever the circumstances, they all still need money immediately, and we still want to help.
And here’s the thing: Our network of private lenders work fast, they really like to say ‘yes’ a lot, and they can work with almost all types of borrowers and all types of credit!

Why Is Lawsuit Funding Illegal In Connecticut?
Legal funding, also known as lawsuit loans, lawsuit funding, or litigation funding, has gained popularity as a viable option for individuals involved in legal disputes to secure financial assistance during the course of their lawsuits. However, it is important to note that legal funding is currently illegal in Connecticut due to specific legislation enacted to safeguard the interests of its residents.
The specific law that makes legal funding illegal in Connecticut is Connecticut General Statutes, Section 36a-555.
Section 36a-555 explicitly prohibits the practice of legal funding within the state. This legislation was introduced to ensure consumer protection and to prevent exploitation of vulnerable individuals who may be experiencing financial difficulties during ongoing legal proceedings. The law aims to establish a level playing field for all parties involved in a lawsuit, preserving the integrity of the judicial system and ensuring fairness.
Benefits Missed by Connecticut Residents
While legal funding remains prohibited in Connecticut, residents unfortunately miss out on several potential benefits, including:
- Access to Justice
Legal funding serves as a crucial resource for individuals who are facing financial constraints while pursuing legal action. By providing upfront funds to cover living expenses, medical bills, or legal fees, legal funding enables plaintiffs to level the playing field and pursue their cases without compromising their financial stability.
- Reduced Financial Stress
Lawsuits can be financially burdensome, often requiring significant out-of-pocket expenses. Legal funding alleviates this stress by bridging the gap between immediate financial needs and the eventual settlement or judgment of the case. This relief allows plaintiffs to focus on their legal matters without the strain of mounting debt or compromised quality of life.
- Equality in Legal Representation
Legal funding can help balance the scales of justice, especially for those who lack the means to pursue their claims vigorously. By providing funds to cover legal expenses, plaintiffs may be better equipped to secure skilled legal representation, increasing their chances of success in court.
- Expedited Resolutions
With the financial pressure eased by legal funding, plaintiffs can avoid settling for less than they deserve due to mounting expenses or time constraints. This ultimately encourages fair and just resolutions, benefiting both the plaintiffs and the judicial system as a whole.
- Economic Stimulation
Legal funding empowers plaintiffs to actively participate in the legal process, which in turn drives economic activity. By providing financial stability, plaintiffs have the means to continue supporting local businesses, paying bills, and contributing to the economy.
While Connecticut’s prohibition of legal funding aims to protect its residents, it inadvertently denies them access to vital financial resources during ongoing legal proceedings. By recognizing the potential benefits that legal funding can offer, lawmakers and policymakers may revisit the existing legislation to strike a balance between consumer protection and the empowerment of individuals seeking justice.
As the legal landscape continues to evolve, it is essential to explore alternative options to ensure fair access to legal funding while maintaining appropriate regulation and oversight.
