Can I Get a Cash Advance on my Juvenile Hall Sexual Abuse Lawsuit?
Yes, you can receive a cash advance against your juvenile hall sexual abuse lawsuit from our law firm. Also known as early settlement or pre settlement loans, these are funds that will help you stay on top of your finances while you wait for your case to settle. Cash advances are a lifeline for many plaintiffs that are struggling with the impact of child sexual abuse.
However, there are some important issues to consider if you are thinking of asking for an advance on a juvenile hall sexual assault lawsuit. This article will go over some of these topics, but the information is for general purposes only. For legal advice that’s specific to your own situation, contact the lawyers of DTLA Law Group.
Are Sexual Assault Pre Settlement Funding Loans Legal?
Yes, pre settlement funding for sexual abuse lawsuits is legal in the state of California. According to the California State Bar, lawyers, upon being retained by a client, are allowed to “lend money to the client based on the client’s written promise to repay the loan.”
So, there are a couple of important points to consider in that statement: 1) a lawyer cannot lend money to a client unless they are representing them in a lawsuit; 2) there must be a written >contract for the loan, including the terms for how the loan is paid back to the attorney.
As you can see, there is a formal process for how these advances are issued. The written contract is particularly important, as clients should have a full understanding of what they’re getting into. You should also have the opportunity to ask any questions about the loan terms and ensure that they are reasonable to you.
If you are interested in taking out a pre settlement loan, please schedule a free consultation by contacting our office.

How Much of an Advance can I Receive on my Juvenile Hall Sexual Assault Case?
The total amount you can receive from a cash advance for sexual abuse lawsuits is based on multiple factors that are specific to your case. These include the approximate value of your case, the amount that’s needed to meet your living expenses, and how long it may take to settle your lawsuit. Thus, we will need to speak with you in person and go over important details related to your case, like your medical expenses, pain and suffering, and other monetary damages.

Why is My Lawyer Refusing to Give Me an Early Settlement Loan?
Though it’s perfectly legal to do so, your lawyer is not obligated to loan you money against your future settlement. Essentially, this is done at the discretion of each law firm, and there are legitimate reasons as to why an attorney will not give cash advances to their clients.
For example, your lawyer may see these loans as a conflict of interest, meaning they have a greater stake in rushing the legal process and getting back the money they loaned you. This can result in the client accepting a settlement early in the case when further negotiations or a trial is the better option. We understand how this can happen, but our attorneys have many years of litigation experience on behalf of sexual abuse victims. We know that it’s in everyone’s best interest to fight for what the client deserves, no matter how long it takes.
On the other hand, it’s unreasonable to ask that clients wait for payment when they are unable to keep up with their medical bills, rent, and other living expenses. That’s why we are happy to offer pre settlement funding for those who were sexually assaulted while staying at a juvenile hall.
Are Lawsuit Funding Companies Worth It?
As a general rule, we would say no, lawsuit loan companies are not worth it.
This question comes up quite often during consultations, and we understand why these companies are appealing to claimants that are waiting for a case to settle. A quick online search will bring up pages of companies promising you instant cash upon approval of your loan application. You only pay back the loan once you receive your compensation award, so you don’t have to worry about collections calls and letters in the meantime.
But as you may have guessed, loan companies charge interest, and those rates can be exceptionally high with lawsuit funding loans. Interest rates are compounded monthly in most cases, and that can add up to a tremendous amount depending on how long it takes to settle your lawsuit. It’s worth nothing that claims for sexual abuse of a minor usually take 1 to 3 years to settle, and even longer if you take your case to court. At that rate, you could end up with interest rates that are between 30 to 60%, which will take away a significant portion of your settlement award.
We acknowledge that there are circumstances where someone could benefit from signing with one of these companies. However, a pre settlement loan from your lawyer is the better choice in most cases.
Can I Switch Lawyers if My Current Law Firm Doesn’t Offer Sexual Assault Lawsuit Loans?
Yes, you can switch your lawyer on a juvenile hall sexual assault claim if they refuse to offer lawsuit funding for sexual abuse claims. But this is not a decision you should rush into, as you have already invested considerable time and effort into your case. Some law firms are overly eager to push themselves on prospective clients, but honesty, integrity, and the victim’s best interests are what matters to us here at DTLA Law Group.
That’s why we want to provide you with a free second opinion, where you can take the time to learn about us and how we can be of help to you. Ultimately, finding a new attorney in the middle of a lawsuit is not the right choice for everyone. Then again, staying with a lawyer that is failing to meet your needs, like timely communication and dedication to your case, is not going to help you in the long run. On top of that, if they are failing to provide you with a sexual assault lawsuit cash advance, it may be time to look for a new law firm.
Making an informed decision on your sexual abuse lawsuit starts with legal advice from an experienced attorney. Call us today and schedule a free second opinion consultation if you have an active lawsuit for sexual abuse at a juvenile hall.
