Can The Sawaya Law Firm Lend Me Money?
We will do everything we can to help settle your claim, and we will advance the costs of the legal action. We cannot, however, loan you money. The laws of Colorado are quite specific: it is illegal for an attorney to lend a client money and could result in disciplinary action against our firm. If you are getting letters from collection agencies or other creditors, we will be happy to write to them and explain that you have a personal injury action in progress. We will ask them to give you more time or defer payment until you receive your settlement.
