As longtime members of the civil justice system, we have seen the caustic effect the for-profit plaintiff funding industry has on plaintiffs, their families, and the civil justice system as a whole. Litigation can be a long road, and people often exhaust their savings and need financial help before their settlement arrives. Unfortunately, many of the funding companies that lend a hand do not act justly during what is likely the most difficult time in their borrowers’ lives. Many of these companies charge astronomical interest rates, which can equate to more money owed than the settlement recovery the client is expecting.
The Bairs Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that helps plaintiffs in need pay for basic living expenses. The funding it provides comes with the lowest interest rate in the industry. We’re proud of the work we do. Below is a testimonial from a person we recently helped.
I would like to offer hope to anyone who may be facing life time changes by sharing my experience with the Bairs Foundation. I was in a financial situation after losing my husband; I had no place to turn. I couldn’t pay the bills, put food on the table, or make the mortgage. Our home went into foreclosure. I was deeply distraught. It’s so much I cannot begin to tell it all.
I was directed to the Bairs Foundation; they are a life saver. Rachel at the foundation is the kindest and most considerate person, she stepped right in and started the ball to rolling, and within days I was able to buy food and pay the bills. I was so fortunate to have the foundation there for me. I was at a state of a mental breakdown. I bless the Bairs foundation, Rachel and all the other hard working, caring people at the foundation.
The way they were there for me at the most critical time in my life, I have nothing but love for the foundation. They are light in your darkest hour. I thank GOD for the Bairs Foundation!!
