Peachtree has a variety of pre-settlement funding options for your unique needs. Smaller funding amounts (as little as $500) require no case-related documents and your attorney can submit a simplified application. Individuals seeking $5,000 or less can expect a fast application review and quicker funding. Large funding amounts are available up to $750,000. Post-settlement funding is also available.
When making decisions about who to secure pre-settlement funding from, be sure to ask questions such as:
- Are there any hidden fees involved?
- Is the monthly compounding fee competitive with other companies?
- Does the monthly fee change over the term of the funding?
- How long have they been involved in pre-settlement funding?
- Does the company have good third-party ratings?
The settlement process can be difficult to understand and take quite a bit of time to resolve. Pre-settlement funding can provide some much-needed relief. Here are some answers to common questions that arise during the pre-settlement process.
How long does this process take?
Once we receive your completed application, the funding process usually takes between 1 and 3 business days.
Will I need a lawyer?
Yes. You must have an attorney representing your case. Peachtree will work directly with your attorney to ensure that all paperwork is complete and funding is delivered as quickly as possible.
Who will I be working with at Peachtree?
You’ll work with one dedicated representative throughout the entire process. This representative will be familiar with all the ins and outs of your case, and will be available to answer any questions you and your attorney might have.
What documents will I need?
This can vary but for most cases your attorney will need to provide a completed application, a police report and any medical reports if applicable.

Does it cost anything to apply for pre-settlement funding?

Are there any additional fees or costs?
No, our fees include a competitive monthly compounding fee on the amount funded which will include a one-time $75 document preparation fee.
Are pre-settlement funds the same as a loan?
No, it is the sale of a portion of the potential proceeds of the lawsuit. Unlike a loan, if the case is unsuccessful, you do not have to pay back the funding you received from Peachtree or incur any fees.
Will my attorney be required to sign any documents?
Yes, the attorney signs the “Acknowledgement by Counsel.” The attorney acknowledges the assignment of a portion of the proceeds and agrees to pay the amount due from the settlement proceeds to Peachtree upon settlement of the case.
