Structured Settlements and Interest Rates, With Kelly Ramsdale, Kelly Ramsdale & Associates, Denver, Colorado

When Kelly Ramsdale, of Kelly Ramsdale and Associates in Denver, Colorado, speaks with families, she teaches them about structures.  She says it's not about the interest rates but rather the security and she brings to the table "the ability for clients to sleep at night." 

When Ramsdale meets with families, there are usually no questions about interest rates, as families almost never ask her about that.  She believes there is a huge disconnect between what the attorneys perceive to be important and what the injured people perceive to be important.

Attorney Misconception with Structured Settlements, with Kelly Ramsdale, Kelly Ramsdale and Associates, Denver, Colorado

Kelly Ramsdale, President of Kelly Ramsdale and Associates, a national plaintiff-only structured settlement consulting firm in Denver, Colorado, says that attorneys often look at structured settlements all wrong.  They need to look at their clients as "retirees" and not to look at them in the growth phase of their portfolio, as they're in the income portion.  "They need this money and don't have the luxury to let it grow," Ramsdale says.

Ramsdale finds that attorneys often equate structures with people who aren't very smart or sophisticated.  She finds that to be very wrong and in fact, works with clients who believe structures bring security to the table.
