“As the costs and delays of civil litigation increase, the ideal of equal justice is unfulfilled. All too often …the party with the greater financial resources … prevails by exhausting the resources for the weaker opponent. The mere threat of delay or unbearable expense denies justice to many actual or prospective litigants. Persons or businesses of comparatively limited means settle … and relinquish claims simply because they cannot afford to litigate…” Justice Powell as quoted in Joseph R. Biden, Jr’s, Equal, Accessible, Affordable Justice Under Law
You have just won a big money judgment, but the defendant appeals. You know the additional financial and emotions strain that a long and costly appeal will have on your client, and maybe even on your firm. A loan is off the table.
- Money is needed now to pay bills, to develop an opportunity or pay case costs.
- Appeal finance solves the problem for your firm and your client.
- What Is Appellate Funding?
Appeal Funding is similar to collecting on an insurance policy before you pay the premium! But it’s even better – You only pay if you eventually win the case and collect!
You get the funds now when you need it.
And we assume the risk.
Appeal Funding Partners, LLC, leader in appeal finance, provides immediate financial assistance, in the form of non- recourse (risk-free) cash advances to trial attorneys and plaintiffs, who have money judgments on appeal.
