The Plaintiff Recovery Trust

Increasing the amount plaintiffs keep in taxable cases. Without it, plaintiffs are taxed on proceeds paid to their lawyers.

Increasing Your After-Tax Recovery

      Plaintiffs often keep half of what they should, paying tax on winnings their lawyers keep. Lawyers then pay tax on the same money. The Recovery Trust avoids this "Double Tax."

The Recovery Trust at Work

If your injury claim is owned by the Recovery Trust, you're not taxed on winnings paid out in legal fees. Instead, you pay tax only on the amount you keep.

Deferring More
