A thought leadership forum for America’s most notable civil plaintiff and criminal defense attorneys, the conference brings together its members to share ideas about marketing and managing their firms, as well as improving skills in the courtroom.
As part of her presentation focused on legal funding, Pekin will discuss: basics and benefits of the consumer legal funding industry for both the plaintiffs and attorneys, how to use medical funding as a solution for personal injury cases and how legal funding transactions work to add value to cases through funding.

“I am thrilled and honored to speak at this prestigious event,” said Pekin, a personal injury attorney who founded Momentum Funding after realizing the need to establish a seamless process for plaintiffs in need of financial assistance. “When attorneys at this level come together to collaborate and share ideas, positive change is inevitable. I look forward to providing valuable information for attorneys to help them find new legal funding solutions, which will add value to their cases and most importantly help their clients.”
Pekin is speaking at the Summit alongside such prominent attorneys as Gloria Allred, F. Lee Bailey, Lisa Blue, Mark Geragos, Christian Searcy, LegalZoom Founder Brian Liu and a special keynote by World Series Champ and 14-time All-Star baseball player and Fox Sports Commentator Alex Rodriguez.
