The second level of ELANA’s Level 5+ Planning™ Process is Litigation Support. Litigation support services are defined as any service or product that assists our referring attorney’s ability to gain an edge, or better insight during case preparation, negotiations, or in situations that have contested values or worth. A sampling of ELANA brand of litigation support services includes: Case valuations, breakdown of economic and life care reports, testimony at trial, and venue-specific analysis.
In this phase of the process, our Financial and Settlement Architects work directly with the attorneys to assist with support services such as valuation, public benefit program compliance (as it relates to Medicare and Medicaid issues) and consultation for the mediation process. Ultimately, we support legal counsel in their efforts to provide the best representation and care for their clients through our early involvement in the case.
Formulating value and design considerations of a settlement allows the injured or divorcing party to plan the otherwise overwhelming task of trying to understand what their settlement might mean in terms of lifetime value.
Litigation Support allows injured parties to move forward with the confidence that their objective of financial security is attended pragmatically during the crucial litigation proceedings and sets the stage for the INDIVDUAL CASE DESIGN phase.
