    Great article. Before getting a lawsuit funding make sure you do your homework and understand the cost of getting it. I looked at different companies when I was looking for loan funding and decided to go with Fair Rate Funding (http://www.fairratefunding.com/). It helped me through the tough times.

  • This article lays out concerns about recouping fees that they have charged to their clients in a thorough manner.
