A growing trend in among our attorney clients is to protect themselves by having their clients sign a claimant acknowledgement form and document their file that the client was informed about the opportunity to participate in a structured settlement.  Why is this important?  Many attorneys refer to the Grillo v Pettiete case and feel this is cause to CYA.  But more than that, it is a deemed as a way to continually help their client over the years, keeping them happy.  A happy client is the best form of advertising money can buy, and it doesn’t cost a thing.
