Our Approach

Creative Legal Funding works directly with attorneys to help facilitate medical care for injured clients that possess little to no health coverage. Once our intake process is completed, our team will begin working with medical providers to get your client scheduled for consults, pain injections and if needed, surgeries. We do not have any involvement in the care and treatment direction of your client but are simply the go between with each office to schedule and obtain billing so your office can focus on other aspects of the case. If your client is experiencing significant financial strain, we offer pre-settlement cash advances that can help meet your clients needs and have several options available to ensure timely receipt of funds.

How We Began

Creative Legal Funding was launched in 2008 after our founder was involved in a major auto accident where he suffered extensive injuries that required multiple surgeries. Despite possessing health insurance, he was left with out of pocket expenses that reached the five-figure level over his three year case period. After his experience, he knew there had to be a better way for personal injury victims so he began reaching out to attorneys and medical providers and Creative Legal Funding was the result. Over these 10 years, our team has worked endlessly to build a network of providers in the Northern California area your clients can rely on for quality care.
