We have seen significant growth in our business using Advocate.
By financing cases with Advocate, we were able to free up capital, allowing us to invest in growing both our caseload and our business infrastructure.
After more than 17 years at a prominent plaintiff's firm, I left at the end of 2020 to launch a new firm.
In just over a year, our firm has grown to 7 employees and has resolved four cases for values in excess of $1 million. Although we had a very good first year, we are expecting significant revenue growth for year two. None of this would have been possible without our partnership with Advocate Capital. This access to additional capital during our startup and first-year allowed us to reinvest more of our revenues into marketing and case costs, which has enabled us to develop many new significant high-value cases and accelerated our growth.
Advocate Capital has been a great tool for Roybal Mack and Cordova. P.C.
Their staff always demonstrates professionalism and is extremely attentive to all of our needs. Their portal is extremely user-friendly and they always respond to our needs in a timely manner. I highly recommend using their services.
I am so very thankful your company exists to support the work we do.
Too often the rights of the voiceless, the damned, and the forgotten are simply overlooked, or worse, trampled upon. As a plaintiff's lawyer, sometimes our work is lonely and it is satisfying to know that my clients' rights are important and worthy through Advocate Capital's willingness to fund our work. From the bottom of my heart, thank you for your support.
We are a very small shop, two lawyers and an administrative assistant. We have approximately 30 to 40 cases on our docket. Because we are not a "volume" plaintiffs' law firm, we may go six, seven, and even eight months without a settlement or collection of a verdict. This is not a good example of a Harvard Business School business model!!! To plug those gaps in income, we rely heavily on Advocate help to fund our cases during those lean times. Advocate understands this is our "business model" and is able to appreciate the value of our clients' cases as non-traditional "collateral." Banks do not understand or even comprehend this type of lending. Banks have to be able to tangibly "touch" the collateral. I want you to know how important this is to our small law firm's very existence.
I also appreciate your AdvoTrac software. We are able to consider passing on the interest attributable to those cases in which we have sought and received funding, though we do not always pass the interest charged by ACI to our client. We consider doing so on a case-by-case basis.
Thank you for your help, your loyalty and your understanding of the work we do.

The pandemic has significantly altered the legal landscape in the field of personal injury law.
Driving has decreased considerably while the court system has become backlogged, with cases being set for trial 2-years from the date of filing. This has led to fewer new clients and tremendously frustrated those with existing cases. Aware of these factors, the insurance industry has exponentially increased their standardized practice of delay, stall, hinder, then low-ball banking on the attrition of Plaintiffs and their lawyers. Advocate Capital is a guardian in our most challenging time and has permitted us to continue to fight, without fear of expense, for just and fair results for our clients.
Advocate Capital has provided confidence and support, which allowed this firm to thrive during the darkest days of the pandemic. We are honored to collaborate with such an exceptional entity and look forward to many more years of success.
Advocate Capital has improved cash flow and reduced my personal taxes for phantom income for many, many years.

Advocate Capital made a difficult process as painless as possible.
Advocate Capital has been instrumental in allowing our injury law section to get its feet off the ground.

Their financial backing has allowed the office the ability to both grow and take on bigger, better cases. And this peace of mind enables me to focus on what I love best, practicing law. Plaintiff’s firms everywhere should take advantage of what Advocate Capital has to offer.
I cannot thank Advocate Capital enough. This pandemic brought our cases to a screeching halt.
While cases are not settling and income is not coming in, your case funding has allowed me to continue working on my cases, getting expert opinions, taking depositions and preparing my cases for the time when trials open back up so I can hopefully finally reap the fruit of our labor. This all would not be possible without the funding provided by Advocate Capital. It is as simple as that.
Advocate Capital is a streamlined organization that we use for case funding. My experience with the Advocate team has been nothing short of positive.
From assistance with filling out forms to using their website and even journalizing the accounting records, they are always available to assist at a moment’s notice. I would highly recommend them to any law firm looking to expand its business by securing additional capital.
Engaging Advocate Capital has been one of the most intelligent decisions we have made.
Having unfettered access to cash for case costs has allowed us to be even more aggressive in obtaining the necessary evidence and expert witnesses to document our client’s claims. This also enables us to speed up the prosecution of our cases and demonstrate to the opposition our commitment to the claim. Clients are also very happy because their cases are not dragging. Plus, the people at Advocate Capital are so helpful and supportive of us. Thanks, Mike Swanson for putting together such a great team!
I just want you to know that you guys have made a big difference.
I just want you to know that you guys have made a big difference by choosing to support me three years ago. It meant a lot to me. While I was a partner in other firms I thought, If I ran things, I would do it this way, but I always worried about whether I could support a business of my own. During the application process with Advocate Capital, the simple act of putting together the fees that I had generated over the years made me see what I generated over the past few years, and how much I would need to carry in order to operate my own firm. The application process alone gave me more confidence and now I’m doing three to four times that much! I will always appreciate Advocate for that.
Thanks to Advocate Capital we can go toe to toe with the defense without the worry of increasing litigation costs.

They are extraordinarily organized, timely, and easy to work with.
Advocate Capital has been indispensable to the success of our practice. They are extraordinarily organized, timely, and easy to work with. They make advancing costs on personal injury cases an afterthought instead of a constant worry. I have since had other businesses attempt to finance our firm, and none could offer me the immediate and easy internet access, service and painless accounting that they do, and at better rates! I highly, highly recommend trying them. Once you do, you’ll save so much time and effort that you’ll never look back.
Flexible and reasonable.

Advocate Capital has been instrumental in the growth of our personal injury law practice.
Advocate Capital has been instrumental in the growth of our personal injury law practice. Instead of fronting tens (or hundreds) of thousands of dollars in one particular case, we are now able to use that money to fund other cases and not have to worry about retaining the proper (expensive) experts, and paying for a critical demonstrative or animation for a jury trial. I highly recommend Advocate Capital.
The people at Advocate get it.
In the catastrophic personal injury and wrongful death cases that our firm handles, you have to spend money to make money. Litigation has become increasingly expensive, and we are often litigating against defendants whose resources dwarf ours. Success often requires hiring the best experts in the country, and they don’t come cheap.
The last thing we need to be worrying about during the midst of trial is how we’re going to afford to pay for the experts and other expenses that are necessary in these types of cases. That’s where Advocate Capital comes in. They provide us with the financial wherewithal to take on any defendant, in any type of case, in any forum. We could not do what we do without them.
On top of that, their staff is incredibly friendly, helpful and accommodating. Working with them has been a pleasure. Unlike banks with whom we have dealt in the past in order to finance our cases, the people at Advocate get it. They understand that we are not a typical business with typical cash flow, receivables, etc. and that we require financing that meets our unique needs. They also understand and appreciate the importance of what plaintiff’s lawyers around the country do to achieve justice for people and promote the safety of products, workplaces, etc. The people at Advocate have become a critical part of our litigation team.

In the difficult business climate we find ourselves in, it is a relief to know there is a company that one can turn to assist in funding the endeavors of my firm. A majority of lending institutions are reducing access to vital business capital, with the exception of Advocate Capital. They extended our credit line to allow us to have our best year on record.
We are one of Advocate Capital's longest clients. It made sense to us almost 20 years ago and it makes good sense now. They have been like a partner for us, and I can't imagine why a personal injury firm would not use them.

I first learned about Advocate Capital about five years ago through a well-respected plaintiff’s firm in the San Francisco Bay Area.
While at the time my young firm did not yet qualify for their services, the Advocate Capital team was very encouraging, checking in with me every few months, answering my questions, and generally being a great resource.
When my firm finally qualified just over a year ago, we immediately invested the recaptured revenues into marketing and growing our team. We saw results immediately. By the end of 2019, my firm’s revenues had grown 87.4% over 2018.
My firm was recognized by Law Firm 500 as the 22nd fastest growing law firm in the United States and the 4th fastest growing law firm in California. Advocate Capital has been the fuel powering this growth. And even with the challenges 2020 has presented, we expect to continue our growth trajectory.
To say I am grateful to Advocate Capital for their support is an understatement. Any plaintiff’s firm would be crazy not to take advantage of the services this company offers.
Advocate Capital is a great asset to have in your law office management toolbox.
As a small law firm, we are better able to focus on what the case needs to maximize its value, without spending so much time managing case budgets and cost tracking amongst the various cases. The people at Advocate Capital are also great to work with and provide helpful suggestions concerning case cost management and financing. I do not hesitate to suggest Advocate Capital to any other plaintiff’s law firm.
Advocate Capital has helped our practice grow and accept new business in ways that I never imagined.
The flexibility of Advocate’s finance programs makes it easy for us to say
yes to new clients and matters. They have been an excellent partner in our success.
I recently used Advocate Capital on a serious injury case.
The end result was a multi-million dollar recovery. The resources provided by Advocate Capital allowed me to spare no expense in litigating the case, while at the same time freeing up firm resources to prosecute other cases. I highly recommend Advocate Capital. They are a great partner.
We no longer worry about day to day cash flow issues.
Working with Advocate Capital has truly changed our business.

We no longer worry about day to day cash flow issues or whether we can afford the expert we want to hire. The result is a direct benefit to our clients and better results.
Financing cases with Advocate Capital is perfect for our law firm.
We’ve been with Advocate Capital for a little over one year. Miller & Ogorchock, S.C. is a two-lawyer personal injury law firm in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. We handle all types of injury cases including all types of vehicle accidents, dental malpractice, insurance bad faith, premises liability and products liability. Financing cases with Advocate Capital is perfect for our law firm, giving us the financial flexibility to aggressively market our business in a very competitive environment. Advocate Capital’s customer service is outstanding. It’s a very user-friendly program.

I highly recommend this service for any attorney who routinely advances costs on behalf of clients.
I’ve worked very hard to grow my personal injury practice. The problem was, the more I increased my client base, the more money I was advancing on behalf of my clients. This was money I often needed to borrow on my existing line of credit. I was not only extending my clients thousands of dollars in interest-free loans, I was actually borrowing money to advance to my clients, and I was paying the finance charges. For a long time I just assumed this was the cost of doing business.
Then I learned of Advocate Capital from a colleague. It immediately became clear that I was unnecessarily tying up my working capital, and essentially throwing money away. The application process was quick and painless, and my account rep walked me through every step. Underwriting was quick to approve me and in no time all that money I had advanced to my clients was back in my bank account. Advocate helped me explain this transition to my existing clients, and has stood at my side as we’ve started to utilize their system.
I have no doubt that this extra operating capital will immediately result in increased revenues. My only regret is that I didn’t hear about Advocate Capital sooner. I highly recommend this service for any attorney who routinely advances costs on behalf of clients.
Everything is always done right and on time.
For the almost sixteen years, this firm has been around we have procured services of all types: banking, accounting, consulting and any number of other functions. Frankly, the service we have received largely has been problematic with one huge exception: Advocate Capital. They are great. Everything is always done right and on time. I hope that the service we provide to our clients comes close to the service we get from Advocate Capital.
We were initially skeptical about case funding programs as either being too expensive or too convoluted for our clients.
We have been pleasantly surprised at how practical the case funding has been for our clients and our firm. The application process was not over burdensome or too demanding. The administration of the case funding has turned out to be manageable. The process facilitates access to justice by clients who might not be able to finance a case and, at the same time, frees up operating funds for the firm. We are very pleased with all aspects of the programs Advocate Capital has offered.
We have been using the services of Advocate Capital for approximately ten years and have found them to be extremely attentive to our needs.
Frequently, we have been required to pay expert witness fees in the thousands of dollars. It would have taxed our operating capital considerably if we had to cover that cost with our own funds. The service rendered by them has been prompt, and I am satisfied the cost is reasonable. They have enabled us to handle cases without concern for the expenses we might incur.
Advocate Capital has been a invaluable resource for our clients and for our law firm.
Advocate Capital has been a invaluable resource for our clients and for our law firm. The folks at Advocate Capital have always been helpful, friendly and responsive. They have been great to work with and we would recommend them to any other law firms.
I can say without reservation that we owe a significant part of our success to Advocate Capital.
I believe that having legal funding available for case expenses increases the average person’s access to justice. I have been using funding for legal case expenses since I started my own firm in 1998. The firm has grown exponentially since then, and I can say without reservation that we owe a significant part of our success to Advocate Capital.
Initially, I used another legal funding company, but the administrative requirements and ever-changing complexities of their funding plans began to frustrate me. If I can’t understand it, I certainly can’t explain it to a client.
Since we began using Advocate in 2003, I have been impressed by their professionalism and willingness to assist us with our questions and concerns. They are consistent, stable, and friendly. I no longer worry about being overwhelmed by the unlimited litigation budgets of huge corporations and insurance companies, and I am able to take cases knowing that I cannot be put at a disadvantage due to inability to fund the expenses.
I wholeheartedly recommend them to other Plaintiffs’ firms and Plaintiffs’ attorneys. If anyone would like to discuss my experience with Advocate, please contact me at (512) 474-7677.
Advocate Capital truly understands how a plaintiff’s firm operates.

Using Advocate’s online service allows my office immediate access to vital information.
Working with Advocate Capital over the past 15 years has truly been of benefit to my practice. As a personal injury firm, my cases are taken on a contingency basis and I do not worry about having to finance all of the expenses associated with preparing a case for settlement. Our operating capital is freed up for office operations rather than financing case costs. Advocate Capital provides my firm with the cash needed to properly fund our clients’ cases, and does so efficiently, promptly and professionally. Being able to to obtain information for payoff quotes using Advocate’s online service allows my office immediate access to vital information. The efficiency in which Advocate handles advance requests is a testament to their organization and I would highly recommend any law practice utilize their services.
The team at Advocate is very customer focused.
Advocate Capital has helped me help more clients. After reading Mike’s book, How David Beats Goliath, I realized that I should not be using my own “after-tax” dollars to fund my cases. It gives me peace of mind to know that I have a funding source for my large, expensive cases which may take years to resolve. The team at Advocate is very customer focused. It has been an A++ experience.
Now I have the freedom to push multiple big cases at once, and the results have been fantastic.
Before Advocate, I averaged about one seven-figure settlement per year. In the last twelve months, I have settled 5 cases in the seven-figures. Before Advocate Capital, I was never in a position to prosecute multiple big cases with six-figure expense budgets at the same time. Now I have the freedom to push multiple big cases at once, and the results have been fantastic. In short, I love Advocate, and am grateful for the part you are playing in my success.

The Law Firm of Jesus M. Dovalina is a two lawyer personal injury law firm in the small town of Del Rio, Texas. We handle all kinds of injury cases including vehicle accidents and products liability cases which occasionally include a wrongful death cause of action. These cases can get extremely expensive very fast. I recently was able to obtain a verdict for a young 24 year-old man who was struck by a bus and had to undergo two back surgeries. The cost of having to hire an accident reconstructionist, economist and vocational expert with the help of Advocate Capital made it possible for me to obtain a $1.2 million verdict. Advocate Capital understands our needs and delivers every time. I highly recommend their services.

Now, we have the freedom to represent all of our clients to the fullest.
Advocate Capital, Inc. has transformed the finances of our practice by removing the fear of paying for cases that cost a lot of money. Now, we have the freedom to represent all of our clients to the fullest.
Cash flow often interferes with most firms’ ability to freely fund their cases…Advocate solves that problem.
Maximizing a client’s recovery on cases is often a function of having the money needed for experts, investigators, medical illustrators, court reporters, videographers, and focus group research. Cash flow often interferes with most firms’ ability to freely fund their cases as quickly or fully as needed to maximize recoveries. Advocate solves that problem.
Advocate Capital has been a true stress reliever for my business operation management.
As a fast growing firm, the expenses per case can consume a substantial portion of my capital. Advocate Capital has totally relieved that worry.

This allowed us to use that money to grow our business. We have been very pleased with Advocate Capital. The case funding software is easy to learn and use and the reports are great!
I can honestly say that going to Advocate Capital has changed my level of service to my clients greatly.
Changing to Advocate Capital absolutely changed my practice. I went from having cases go the speed that I needed, instead of the speed that I could afford that month. I never realized how much that made a difference in the amount of cases I could take and the speed with which I could get them done until I did not have to finance my own costs anymore. When you have a really good case, it makes a difference to the other side when you can disclose all your witnesses with finalized reports all at once. The best strategy for getting a case resolved is to have it ready to try. When you can get all your ducks in a row with Advocate Capital’s help like this, it makes a big difference.
I can honestly say that going to Advocate Capital has changed my level of service to my clients greatly, and it has also increased my profitability as well. I have never had a client complain about the added interest costs. I have many letters of thanks from people who appreciated how I moved their case along. I expect to work with Advocate for a long time.

Advocate Capital provides the case funding I need at a reasonable cost.
Advocate Capital provides the case funding I need at a reasonable cost. This frees up my cash flow to pay overhead. I was a partner in a large law firm for several years. I am a sole practitioner. Advocate Capital is a great resource for sole practitioners like myself because they provide resources for us that are often only available to groups of attorneys. Their system makes funding, payment, and accounting seamless and fast. Interest can be charged back to clients as a case expense so long as your state’s ethics rules allow this and you include this in your client contract. I highly recommend Advocate Capital.
They take the time to understand our practice and our needs.
We are steadfast customers of Advocate Capital. Our relationship with this lender is built on trust. We are very conservative when it comes to our law firm finances.

You will not find a better and more understanding partner than Advocate Capital.
When I opened my plaintiffs’ medical malpractice law firm in upstate New York in April, 2013, I was facing a challenge, namely,funding the substantial case expenses of our malpractice lawsuits without depleting my personal savings. Fortunately, I found Advocate Capital.
While bankers do not recognize the monetary value of contingent-fee, personal injury and medical malpractice cases, I found a receptive and understanding ear with Lynne M. Cushing, a business development manager with Advocate Capital. Lynne expressed understanding about my financial needs during a difficult transition time for my new firm and treated me like a friend and ally throughout the process.
Today, having worked with Lynne M. Cushing and Advocate Capital for ten months, the funding of case expenses has been seamless and this has helped the cash flow for my new firm. I do not hesitate to hire the top medical experts and create cutting-edge medical exhibits for my trials with the help of funding from Advocate Capital. The main beneficiaries have been our disabled clients. I am lucky to work with Advocate Capital as a partner for our cases!
If you’re considering a third-party lender for case expenses, you will not find a better and more understanding partner than Advocate Capital.

The professionalism of the staff and management of Advocate Capital, Inc. has made it easy for my firm to cut through the red tape to fund our cases in an efficient manner, resulting in our being able to resolve our cases quicker than before.
Advocate Capital has helped our practice grow and accept new business in ways that I never imagined.

Not only am I able to borrow money at the click of a button on their website, I am also able to get an immediate payoff figure.
I recently opened my own practice and knew that the financing of personal injury files could be problematic for a start-up solo practitioner. I met a member of Advocate Capital, Inc. at an AAJ seminar and they provided me with exactly what I was looking for – the ability to borrow money to fund specific personal injury files without the need to micromanage the interest charge on each and every file. Their website and software keep track as to what exactly is owed on each particular file at any given time. Not only am I able to borrow money at the click of a button on their website, I am also able to get an immediate payoff figure and pay off an individual file’s balance at the click of a button. I would highly recommend this to any start-up personal injury practice.
Our firm has been able to take on bigger cases that would be more expensive to litigate.
My law firm has been working with Advocate Capital since February 2012. With the advance funds, our firm has been able to take on bigger cases that would be more expensive to litigate, but that ultimately bring in more lucrative settlements and verdicts. This benefits our clients and keeps our firm going strong. I’d highly recommend Advocate Capital.
Advocate Capital is the best thing to happen to our practice in nearly 30 years.
Being able to hire three top notch expert witnesses with our line of credit from Advocate Capital helped us to settle a negligence case for 1.5 million dollars. Without our line of credit from Advocate Capital, I don’t know where we would have gotten the $19,000 to hire the accident reconstructionist, economist, and vocational expert necessary to prove plaintiff’s case. Advocate Capital is the best thing to happen to our practice in nearly 30 years. Insurance companies have an endless supply of money to defend cases. Now with Advocate’s help, the playing field has been leveled. The best part is that we’re able to pass the cost of financing cases onto the client.
The Advocate Capital expense line allowed me to work up my complex cases the right way.
I acquired my law practice less than a year ago from the retiring owner. I had to pay a 1/3rd referral fee on the full case inventory I inherited. Giving up 1/3rd across the board in my first year of business was a difficult proposition. The Advocate Capital working line provided me with the flexibility to hire a new staff, manage cash flow, and invest in a robust marketing campaign which allowed me to bridge the gap to the following year where I have a fresh case inventory. The Advocate Capital expense line also allowed me to work up my complex cases the right way. I’m not hesitant to invest in expensive experts who are going to bring tremendous value to my case in the long run. Moreover, what is so unique about Advocate Capital, is that they break down each client expense advance per case. No bank lender is willing to do that.
Advocate Capital has enabled my firm to do our work more efficiently and capably.
We are a small personal injury law firm. Advocate Capital has enabled us to promptly fund the costs necessary to assure that our case preparation, including expert witness retention is thorough, timely and effective. Our operating capital is freed up for office operation rather than financing case costs. The interest rates are very reasonable. We pass these interest costs on to the client when the case resolves, with no complaint from any client. Advocate Capital has enabled my firm to do our work more efficiently and capably. I strongly recommend Advocate Capital.
They treated us with care and respect.
We have been very impressed with the service from Advocate Capital. They treated us with care and respect. Having them on board has greatly improved our ability to push cases by giving us the freedom to invest as much as we need to in them. We highly recommend Advocate Capital.
They truly take a personalized approach to their business relationships.
I can’t say enough good things about Advocate Capital. They have allowed our firm to handle larger, more financially demanding cases than we could have ever pursued before. As a result, we have increased our income and gotten better results for our clients. Most importantly, I can’t say enough good things about the people that work there. Every single person has been friendly and helpful. They truly take a personalized approach to their business relationships. For example, Leese called one day and was told I was out of the office because I was getting married. To my surprise when I returned to the office, I found a wedding gift waiting for me from the great staff at Advocate! That gesture epitomizes the way they do business. I highly recommend them to any lawyer who wants to grow their practice and enjoy the financial freedom to do so.
I checked them out carefully prior to signing up, and heard nothing but positive reviews.
As a new client of Advocate Capital, I have been extremely impressed with their professionalism and with how responsive they have been to inquiries. I checked them out carefully prior to signing up, and heard nothing but positive reviews. Those reviews, so far, have been spot on.
Advocate Capital understands the funding needs of plaintiff law firms.
In today’s practice of law, it is not possible to vigorously prosecute a case without proper case funding. Inability to adequately fund a case can often lead to a case being settled prematurely or in some cases, dismissed because all aspects of the case were not fully researched and investigated. Advocate Capital assures that these things do not happen.
Unlike traditional funding institutions, Advocate Capital understands the funding needs of plaintiff law firms. Advocate provides case funding along with the expense tracking system and professional staff. All of which makes Advocate Capital the best at what they do.

Without the continued support of Advocate Capital and its staff, and some wonderful personal encouragement from Michael, my business would not have been able to survive much less rebound and gain the strength it has today going into 2013. Thank you Advocate Capital!

Get on with being a lawyer and not a banker!
Ok, you’re a plaintiff’s lawyer and you know you have to obtain clients and, once obtained, you have to prosecute the client’s claims. Part of this relies on your hard work and experience. Part of it relies on your wallet because you have to pay for the costs of your efforts in prosecuting the case. You’re taking all of the risk and regular banks have no clue what a contingent liability is. You want to charge interest on the costs to the client but you do not have the infrastructure or personnel to do it because it is too costly and the banks won’t do it. So what do you do, just pay the cost and eat the time that your money is in the case? No, you use Advocate Capital who understands contingency work and understands trial lawyers, especially plaintiff’s trial lawyers. You will find that they are actually enjoyable to work with. You now sleep at night knowing your ability to fund your cases has been handled. Get on with being a lawyer and not a banker!
Not only does Advocate Capital enable us to provide excellent customer service to our clients without missing a step, they also help us to ensure financial stability for our firm as a business.
Whether it is case funding or the option of a working capital loan, Advocate provides us with the cash flow and stellar customer service necessary to efficiently run a business and a successful law firm.
