Traditional lending programs like to work with specific “preferred” markets. Unfortunately, Law Firms are not one of them.
They typically also have minimum requirements: Loan volume; time in business; annual revenue; & Personal Guarantees, to participate in their programs – And individual cases must be approved, often times leading to uncovered representation and partial funding. Plus most lenders typically fund only after services have been completed.
Because our program is direct-to-borrower, you are able to collect your fees upfront regardless of the case. Criminal Defense, Divorce, Family, Adoption, Immigration, Estate, IP, Tax, Business, License Defense, Labor and More can all be billed and collected from your client upfront.
Clients are funded directly and you are notified upon funding of the date & amount so you can collect your fees.
Even if the Client defaults on the loan there is no recourse to your firm – You’ll never even hear about it.
Plus you are only billed the 4.99% discount on your Initial Retainer collected. That means if a Client gets $30,000 and the Initial retainer is only $7,000, you are only charged on that – Even if the matter goes through the whole $30k, there are No More Fees.
And, if a client decides to use the funds for another purpose, there is no charge or cost to you – Just let us know, & we zero the invoice. We’re a team – If You don’t get paid – Neither do we.
Every participating law office receives their own Practice Branded application link and custom landing page. Firms are able to have clients complete the application on the fly from any web-enabled device such as a laptop, tablet or smart phone. Application links can be emailed as well as set to link to from your website.
Our marketplace lending platform features immediate credit decisions and “check-your-rate” functionality which allows your client to check approval terms without affecting their credit score. Many applicants receive multiple offers from more than one lender providing an opportunity to the client to choose the offer that best suits their budget.
No more managing expensive payment plans or having to chase clients and the collection headaches it brings. Operate with a fully funded upfront trust account secure in the knowledge you’re in control of your billings. Put your full attention into your Clients’ matter doing what you do best – Free of worry about if you’ll get paid, because you already are.
