Strategic Planners - Structured Settlements
Strategic Planners is a structured settlement company based in Elk Groove,
CA that has been operating for 32 years. They are a structured settlement
planning company, which means they help negotiate and establish structured
settlements to match court mandated damages with the financial capabilities
of the payer with the needs of the recipient.
Structured settlements can be difficult agreements to craft. They require a
complicated balancing of money and timing to ensure that all parties
benefit as much as they can from the settlement process. For example, if an
injured party is expected to need surgery in 6 years, the costs of this
surgery must be planned for, which will impact the way that other payments
In addition to structured settlement planning, Strategic Planners also
focuses on setting up attorney fee structures as they pertain to complex
legal actions like class action lawsuits, taxable damages, and a number of
other non-traditional settlement structures.
Strategic Planners' website is a bare-bones affair. There is limited
information regarding the company and what they do, and serves mostly as a
vehicle to get customers to call them. Like most companies who work with
structured settlements, Strategic Planners does not list any of their rates
or fees for their services on the website. This makes sense, given the
complex nature of structured settlements, along with the fact that every
structured settlement is different.
The aspects of structured settlements that Strategic Planners works on are
some of the more complex elements in a structured settlement. Frequently a
lawyer will take a court case on in a way where their payment comes out of
the damages award by the court or the settlement. When viewed in
conjunction with the other difficulties in setting up a structured
settlement, it can be easy to see how arranging for legal fees to come out
of the awarded money needs to be balanced with the client's needs and the
defendant's ability to pay.
Strategic Planners' website does, however, do a very good job of explaining
the types of cases that Strategic Planners usually deal with, and thus
provides a window of insight into whether or not Strategic Planners are the
right structured settlement firm to help organize and implement your
structured settlement or annuity.
While their website may not be particularly useful to the average person,
there are a host of legal resources available to help lawyers who are in
the process of setting up a structured settlement, which can be helpful if
an attorney has never had to execute that task before. It also lists a
number of the more common terms in the structured settlement and periodic
payment industries that can help clarify a complicated legal situation.
With 32 years of experience and a team dedicated to solving structured
settlement problems, Strategic Planners is one of the most recognizable
structured settlement companies on the market today. They are a great place
to look for a quote if you are in the process of establishing a structured
settlement, annuity, or periodic payment system.
