We were proud to be an exhibitor at the recent Michigan Association for Justice Annual seminar (probably like our 15th MAJ annual seminar we have exhibited at but who's counting!) at the Book Cadillac hotel in the D!
It was great to see so many of our clients and friends!
In 2001 a trial attorney and guardian ad litem paid $4.1 million to settle claims relating to a personal injury case that was settled on an all cash basis because the claimant was not properly educated as to their options pertaining to a structured settlement (Josephine Grillo, As Guardian and As Next Friend
for Christina Grillo, A Minor v. Tom L. Pettiette, T. E. Swate, and Hardy Milutin & Johns, 96th District Court, Tarrant County, TX, Cause No. 96-145090-92. Settlement amounts as reported in Lawyers Weekly 8/2/2001.)
We have developed an awesome short on line video that educates claimants on their financial options and has them execute a waiver similar to the one above online. We can customize an online page with your firm's logo and information so all you need to do to ensure this doesn't happen to you is have each client watch the video and submit their contact information in the online form.
PLEASE don't let this happen to you and your firm! We advise our cl…
When I started in the
Structured Settlements business almost twenty years ago we donated a “BBQ / day at our
farm” as an auction item for the Michigan Trial Lawyers Association (MTLA), now known as the Michigan Association for Justice (MAJ), auction. An attorney who was working at a very big name firm at the time purchased our
“BBQ/Day at Our Farm”, I still don't know how much she paid for it. Her and her entire
family came over on a Saturday for the barbecue. She has three daughters right around the same
ages as ours. It
just so happened that they had closed down
some of the bridges over I 94 to work on them during this time. It was a very hot and
dry summer and our dirt road was very dusty. Right when our guests arrived at the farm huge semi-trucks and tons of traffic started flying down our street kicking
kinds of dust. I was mortified! I thought the party was going to be an absolute disaster and that our
guests would hate us
because of all the dust and traffic! Dus…

This week I was contacted by the father of a young man,
let’s call the young man Joe who is age 20.
Joe had suffered a traumatic brain injury as the result of an auto
accident and had received a settlement of $50,000. Joe’s father was concerned because Joe had
already blown through half his settlement in a month due to his discovery of
cocaine, which some new “friends” he was spending a lot of time with introduced
Joe’s father had heard of something called a Structured
Settlement, which he thought may help preserve the remainder of Joe’s
settlement from being squandered. Structured
Settlements are a financial vehicle which have been around since the 1980’s that
facilitate receiving a legal settlement with interest income tax free over time
and can sometimes have benefits over receiving the settlement all at once in a
lump sum, as in this case.
Joe’s father contacted me because my firm, White House
Settlement Consulting that I founded in 2001, has been helping injury victi…
