Investing Up-front cash for injured parties settling their cases is very different than your typical cash investor. The settlement funds must be protected, last a lifetime and the client must have a complete risk analysis and understanding of the market before investing. This is why I take an active and holistic approach when it comes to advising with injured parties. I put them in the hands of professional big firm money managers who understand structured settlements and the very sensitive nature of the client’s settlement funds.
Every claimant and attorney who chooses to work with The Calderon Settlements Group can expect attentive, first-rate service reflective of our core values:
