The purpose of any kind of financial planning is simply this: to get you the money you need when you need it. Settlement planning is no different.

You have been through an ordeal that has likely been unpleasant, expensive, slow and stressful. You are on the verge of receiving compensation for your injuries that may or may not be the amount you expected or had hoped for. Such is the nature of our claims resolution and legal process and there isn't anything you can do about that.

However, you can do something about maximizing the value of your recovery. By simply stopping to consider your options before taking the money, you can not only boost the value of your recovery significantly, but also relieve a number of financial stresses in the process.

Most people don't even know they have choices at settlement. Worse still, for many of them, this ignorance is going to cost them a fortune in future taxes that they never had to pay if they had only known they had other options.

Luckily for you, someone tipped you off and you are here learning what your options are. You will be glad you did. The overwhelming majority of people who learn they have better options at settlement then go on to do just that: plan a better settlement.

In so doing, they both increase their total net recovery and secure key elements of their financial future. For many, this is the first silver lining in what has been a very dark cloud. We feel honored to help.
