Since 2004 when Paul Isaac, Esq. founded Paramount Settlement Planning he has helped tens of thousands of plaintiffs secure their financial future following the settlement of their personal injury lawsuit through the use of structured settlement annuities, trusts, mutual and government bond funds and our Pre-Settlement Planning Service. Today, Paramount is one of the nation’s largest plaintiff-loyal structured settlement annuity and settlement planning firms. Simply stated, no settlement planning firm does more to protect the plaintiff.

Paramount’s Industry Leading Selection and Service

Paramount offers our clients access to the nation’s highest rated life insurance companies. All clients are provided with what Paramount calls a Full Market Survey. This Market Survey is a chart that details the benefits that each life insurance company can offer to you, based on your selected structured settlement funding amount.

Paramount also offers you around-the-clock service and support long after your case has settled, the settlement checks have been cashed and your structured settlement annuity has been funded.

Mission Statement

Paramount is a comprehensive, plaintiff-loyal settlement planning firm. Paramount is dedicated to advocating on behalf of plaintiffs well before their case has settled, and for the rest of their life following the settlement of their case. Our mission is to help plaintiffs make informed choices on how to improve their lives for today, and how to ultimately secure their financial future. Paramount’s President, Paul K. Isaac, Esq., founded the company in 2004 because he saw an opportunity for plaintiffs to drastically improve their lives and circumstances after the settlement of their case. As a [retired] practicing attorney, Mr. Isaac witnessed, on countless occasions, how quickly a plaintiff’s settlement proceeds can dissipate. The unfortunate truth became clear: many plaintiffs fail to wisely protect and invest their legal settlements. Without expert advice, money that could be invested for the plaintiff’s future can disappear at a swift and alarming rate. That is why Paul K. Isaac, Esq., and the rest of Paramount’s advisors take the necessary steps to help protect plaintiffs from the pitfalls of their newly found “wealth”. Paramount’s advisors emphasize the importance of diversification with the settlement proceeds, and illustrate to all our clients how the use of structured settlement annuities can help put plaintiffs’ lives back on track. Paramount gives plaintiffs the confidence to move forward with their lives knowing that their financial future is secure and stable.
