LEGAL PRACTICE FINANCING | The American Association For Justice Archive


Counsel Financial offers four-year, flexible credit lines that give litigators the financial power they need to avoid premature settlements and take on bigger cases. A line of credit can help with operations, improve the value of your existing portfolio of cases and enable your firm to enter into new litigation.

Unlike traditional bank loans, which limit credit lines to the value of your personal assets only, Counsel Financial can offer your firm a line of credit up to $5 million based on the total value of your contingent fee case portfolio.
