Is there someone who is really interested in "Mass Torts Made Perfect" and not just using it as a slogan?
I just received the umpteenth call from someone with a $75 check from a Wal-Mart class action settlement. Today it was the Illiadis Qualified Settlement Fund. Before that it was the Mussman Qualified Settlement Fund and another nameless qualified settlement funds emanating from class acton suits against Wal-Mart. The Iliadis QSF apparently doesn't even have a website that comes up in Google search.
Might I suggest to the class action law firms or administration firms that take on these cases that they make an effort to do a far better job than they are doing at informing people who are claimants under the qualified settlement fund that you are possibly reaping hundreds of thousands or millions of dollars in fees from.
I have given pro bono service to hundreds of callers because what the law firms or administration firms are doing is inadequate. It's a shame.
