Enhanced Attorney Fee Structure (EAFS)
Enhanced Attorney Fee Structure is also a structured settlement, but it allows the attorney to invest the fee in one or several pre-selected Vanguard Life-Strategy Funds that are administered by Midwest Trust. This unique product allows attorneys to structure fees, defer income, defer taxes, and have the ability to potentially earn a higher rate of return in the market. This product is for the attorney who is looking for a potential higher internal rate of return and desires more control over how his/her money is invested. As with the other attorney fee products, EAFS allows attorneys to have 100% of their fee go into the investment on a pre-tax basis, allowing for greater tax-deferred growth.
