Startup Story from ASAE
American Association of Settlement Consultants
Starting point. The American Association of Settlement Consultants (AASC) focuses on people who work in the settlement field, with many members specializing in structured settlements. Those are a type of injury settlement where, rather than getting a lump sum, the settlement is paid out over multiple years.
“Settlement planning is very gray,” said AASC President Rebekah Reedy-Miller. “There’s no black-and-white answer, so every client is different. There was a huge void and a huge need in our industry for education, for mentorship and for a comprehensive perspective of, ‘This is how you take someone’s case, and this is how you work it up'."
AASC formed last year to provide education and community for members, as well as modernize the industry so it meets today’s needs.
