structured settlement consultant

structured settlement consultant

my name is Jennifer Cantrell with
Cantrell consulting and I work with
personal injury and workers comp
attorneys handling structured
settlements and special needs trusts
other types of trust like settlement
protection trusts we do Medicare
set-asides
and work with attorneys on deferring
their fees as well attorneys instructors
and we like to think that we’re a part
of their team now that I’ve got my own
law firm what I realized is I really
want somebody that is going to protect
me and protect the client and kind of
take ownership of the clients settlement
you know so that means meeting with them
and attending hearings and doing all
those sorts of things and that’s one of
the things that we’ve seen with jennifer
is once we plug her in it’s kind of plug
and play and she’ll take all that stuff
off of mine off of my plate it should be
just listening to their wishes and and
do what they are asking you to do guide
them in the right direction but it
really is you want to know someone with
a soft approach someone who is going to
listen and do with the class after the
ultimate goal would be to meet your
goals as a family or as a person
what we want to do is sit down and talk
about what is this that you need the
settlement to do for you and what is it
that you want the settlement to do for
you many many times those are two
different lists and so we want to do a
needs assessment and it wants assessment
and figure out how we’re going to meet
all of those who need and take care of
you for far into the future or
potentially for the rest of your life
ELISA is the greatest comfort in the
world to know that somebody like
Jennifer is there reliable
knows what she’s doing and offers the
best over here quiet and they just takes
a load off so I can concentrate on but I
need to count straight on and Jennifer
can be where she’s great at if these
people are confident in what’s going to
happen in the future they’re confident
in trust our firm in advising them
what’s best to do either in a settlement
trial or judgment at the end when we go
to trial on a case and we ultimately get
a judgment for our clients we have to
make sure that they’re confident that
they know they’re going to be taken care
of in the future and Jennifer’s an
effective part of that jen has a certain
way about her where she can meet with a
mom who sustained a significant injury
and is taking care of a child who has a
catastrophic injury and she can meet
with them and put them at ease but I
think that it’s not only what happens at
the conclusion of kind of our work but
also Jen’s made herself available to
people and our clients after everything
you’ve done to make sure that they are
comfortable with the process introducing
them to a trustee and making sure a
meeting happen so the person feels
comfortable with this corporate trustee
those are the things that we see we
don’t get a lot of feedback from our
clients but what we see is them calling
us and letting
they feel safe secure and taken care of
which is what is important to us they
want us to consider the client feelings
they want us to be compassionate just
like they are and they want us to be
genuinely concerned about their clients
