Our Values

Compassion

While dealing with tragedy, people need to be met with compassion. Our clients are people, not cases, so before we start to explore the facts in each case, we spend time getting to know each person, their family, and their lifestyle. Showing compassion grows trust, and our clients’ trust is what allows us to understand their fears, hopes and unique situations to help bring them peace of mind.

Stability

After an accident, there is a great need to feel stable again. Milestone restores a sense of stability to families by providing a reliable, responsive and trusted team to guide them through the post-tragedy process. We also aim to be a resource to you for life, not just for now.

Education

Our chief responsibility is to ensure that attorneys and plaintiffs understand the language surrounding settlement planning conversations. We explain, in detail, what settlement options are available so that you and your family can make well-educated decisions regarding your financial future.

Understanding

We understand that no two individuals’ situations or needs are the same, so we investigate every available financial option to customize the best solution. Each circumstance, personality, goal, and dream informs how we resolve the challenges that may arise post-litigation.

Confidence

We bring more than a decade of experience to developing income strategies that proactively plan for our clients’ futures. With professional relationships nationwide, and a wealth of knowledge and expertise within our firm, our experience in managing diverse personal trauma and finding practical financial solutions continues to grow.

The Seventh Amendment and You

The Seventh Amendment is the pillar of our justice system. Our forefathers inhibited the courts from overturning a jury’s findings, enforcing the right of the common man and leveling the playing field against the largest of corporations. This belief system is deeply ingrained in the fabric of our firm, and we’re committed to preserving this right for everyone we represent.

Milestone Consulting, LLC brings together some of the brightest minds in the legal and financial fields to give you a strong, well-rounded foundation for success.

Recovery

We understand the process and the expertise needed to secure the monetary recovery you seek from your settlement. We know the goal of recovery is to help you return to your normal life. Milestone’s methodology ensures that clients receive the most out of the monetary recovery they are entitled to. The optimal time to engage Milestone is before your settlement is finalized. We work in union with both client and attorney to devise the best financial recovery for the injured party. Before your case settles, there are many critical decisions that must be made. We provide you and your attorney with the necessary information needed to take the next step toward recovery.

Discovery

Your next milestone is getting your life back on track with a restored sense of security. Once the settlement is finalized, goals, obligations, and dreams are factored as the essentials of a balanced outcome. We accomplish this by building relationships as we build trust. We take the time to find out who you are, what you need, where you are now, where you will be, and where you would like to go. All financial solutions we offer are identified to you based on your specific needs.

Education

Education provides clarity. We take the time to explore every option and explain why one path may be better than another. Our chief responsibility is to teach you what is necessary to understand the conversation of settlement planning. We outline what settlement options are available to you in detail so that you and your family can feel confident making educated decisions.

Planning

Once you understand your options, planning for your specific future begins. Planning requires a number of considerations, including cash management, trust planning, and investment consulting. We explore all available options, then assist you in weighing each outcome to meet your specific needs.

Selection

There is an entire network of options available, which can be overwhelming to navigate. As your guide, we will direct you to the options that best fit your needs, identify the risks that need to be taken care of immediately, and recognize those that must be managed continuously. We understand how each solution is as unique as the needs of each client and can assist you in building a customized financial blueprint.

Implementation

Once you have made the final decisions on your settlement plan, we help facilitate its implementation, generating all of the necessary documentation and ensuring compliance with all government regulations.

Lifelong Representation

Whether it’s for financial concerns and explorations or just to share news, we take pride in the ongoing relationships we develop with our clients. We will continue to provide you with representation for the life of your settlement plan because we’re invested in you for the long haul.
