Structured Attorney Fees

Attorneys can structure their fees on qualified settlements regardless of whether or not the claimant in their case chooses a structured settlement annuity. Advantages include:

•  Deferral of income/tax-deferral advantages
•  Guaranteed income for life or a specified period of time
•  A means of designating income for life events (e.g. college expenses, retirement, etc.)

Structuring attorney fees via a structured settlement annuity enables an attorney to report income as the payments are received, rather than being taxed on the lump sum. The guaranteed annuity payments may also provide a greater benefit to the attorney than if they were to receive the fees in a lump sum at the time of the settlement.
