Q: What types of cases do you fund?
American Legal Funding can fund nearly any case in which you have been injured due to another party's negligence, have provable injuries and have hired an attorney. For a list of some of the types of cases we fund, please see Types of Cases.
Q: Is This A Loan?
No, settlement funding is not a loan. It is actually an advance on the future recovery of proceeds in your case. Unlike a loan, if you lose your case you owe us nothing.
Q: Does it matter that I have bad credit?
No. We do not check your credit when considering where or not to provide lawsuit funding. Our decision is based solely on the merits and value of your case.
Q: Is this expensive?
Even though American Legal Funding offers some of the lowest rates in the industry, legal financing is expensive when compared to bank loans, credit cards, etc. As such, we encourage to you to exhaust all other options before considering legal funding. Use us as a last resort.
Q: Am I eligible for your services?
To find out, simply fill out our Application or contact us 1-480-515-3698.
Q: How long does it take?
After your attorney provides us with your case information, we can usually have a decision on your request within 24 - 48 hours. In some cases, the approval process takes less time!
Q: What happens if I lose my case?
You owe absolutely nothing in return!
Q: Can I receive money if I have already received money from another funding company?
Possibly. As long as your case has sufficient value, you will be considered for funding. In all cases, it is necessary that we pay off your lien with the first attorney funding company.
Q: How much money can you provide me with?
If you qualify, the minimum is $500. The amount you qualify for is determined by the facts and strength of your case.
Q: Can I get more than one funding from your company?
Yes. We encourage you to only request the amount that you absolutely need to fulfill your immediate needs. You can always call us back to request additional funding.
