As an industry, legal funding has a colorful reputation; a reputation we at Cherokee Funding look to recreate every day we are in business. From the comprehensive – and timely – services we provide to the client experience that accompanies every attorney, medical provider and plaintiff we work with, we are here to provide pre-settlement legal funding for those fighting for justice and fair settlements. And we are here to do it differently.
For those who may be unfamiliar with legal funding, and specifically how Cherokee Funding does legal funding, here is what we provide:
- Cherokee Funding is a full-service direct legal and medical funding company, headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia.
- Cherokee Funding has funded clients in 40 states represented by attorneys in 26 states.
- Cherokee Funding was founded in 2010 at the urging of several doctors and plaintiff attorneys who wanted a better, more reputable option to refer their clients to.
- The idea behind Cherokee Funding is simple: We help plaintiffs by providing them with the funds to pay bills or for medical treatment so they can heal and afford to wait for a fair settlement – and we do it with 100 percent transparency, world-class customer service, and all at a reasonable cost to clients.
- From day one, our goal has been to help enable the best outcome for plaintiffs and attorneys by providing them with the legal and medical funding they need to achieve their goals.
- With over 150 years of combined industry experience, our team prides itself on having the best reputation in the industry.
- Cherokee Funding is also home to the Same Day Funding™. We know that many people who apply for legal funding cash advances do so because they are in urgent need of funds. Same Day Funding was created to help our clients get access to the money they need as quickly as possible – which is why there is no credit check, the application process is easy and fast, and comes at no cost to plaintiffs.

Legal Funding Thoughts: With Cherokee Funding Founder & CEO, Reid Zeising
The pre-settlement advances we provide at Cherokee Funding are critical to leveling the playing field between people with legitimate claims, and influential – and deep-pocketed – defendants and their insurance companies. Legal funding provides plaintiffs with pre-settlement cash advances so they are able to meet daily financial needs while they pursue justice. Access to the vital resource that legal funding is has crossed over from business model to activist; we consider ourselves defenders of the Seventh Amendment – or, the right to trial by jury – and we take that role with a great deal of responsibility. We are constantly self-reflecting on how we are providing legal funds to those in need and how we can do it better every day.
An accident of any kind, but also the legal claim process that follows, is arguably one of the most challenging times of someone’s life. To be able to provide a source of relief is a wonderful feeling, and we are grateful to be in a business built around helping people.
