Comprehensive Settlement Expertise

We help personal injury attorneys handle settlement-related issues so they can focus on advocating for their clients.

Welcome to Amicus settlement planners

We Provide Solutions to Simplify Settlement

We help personal injury attorneys and their clients with issues that arise at settlement.

Our firm was built by attorneys who focus on serving fellow attorneys. Our team is made up of attorneys, CFPs, CFAs, and CPAs.

We specialize in structured settlement annuities, government benefits planning, trusts and asset management services, and attorney fee deferral strategies. 

PROTECT

Structured Settlement Annuities

We help attorneys and their clients evaluate their unique situation to determine if a structured settlement is the right fit for a portion of the settlement funds. Our structured settlement solutions are designed to prepare for and meet the client’s future needs.

Manage

Trusts and Asset Management

We analyze your clients’ risk profiles, situations, and goals to determine if they could benefit from the flexibility and protection found in a trust-based solution or from personalized asset management. We then design a solution to ensure your client’s future well-being.

PRESERVE

Government Benefits Planning

We help ensure that receiving a legal settlement does not impact the ongoing government benefit eligibility of your clients or their household members. We also help attorneys comply with the requirements of the Medicare Secondary Payer Act.

REDUCE

Tax Deferral of Attorney Legal Fees

Personal injury attorneys have the unique ability to defer the receipt of their legal fee to future tax years. We specialize in creating customized strategies for attorneys to minimize taxes, fund retirement or other future goals, normalize firm cash flows, and retain key employees.

One Size Fits One 

We Create a Strategy That Makes Sense For Your Clients

We know that every client’s situation is unique — and that’s why we believe there’s no such thing as a one-size-fits-all approach. We create customized, tailored solutions to ensure the best possible outcome.

“I have developed complete confidence in Amicus’ expertise in the technical and rapidly changing areas of structured settlement annuities and special needs trusts. When I have concerns about preserving settlement funds or protecting against post-settlement threats to my clients’ recoveries, my first call is to Amicus.”

SCOTT D. BROWN • NUTTALL, BROWN & COUTTS

“Amicus Settlement Planners assisted me with the preparation of a settlement trust for a personal injury case. My client was not satisfied with the traditional options for protection of minor personal injury settlement money. She wanted a vehicle that would give her some control going forward. Amicus offered that in the form of a settlement trust. I hired them to draft the trust. They got it done quickly at a very reasonable price.”

REX BUSH • BUSH LAW FIRM

“Amicus Settlement Planners, LLC has been outstanding in assisting my clients through both very large and modest settlements in Utah as well as national and international settlements to best protect their settlements while growing their money.”

ALAN W. MORTENSEN • DEWSNUP, KING & OLSEN
