Founded in 2012, Synergy’s Foundation For Those With Special Needs is a non-profit 501(c)(3) dedicated to helping those with special needs and supporting other charitable organizations that protect and promote the civil justice system. The Foundation was created as a way to give back to the civil justice system, support those that need its protections, and to serve as a trustee for the Settlement Solutions National Pooled Trust under 42 U.S.C. 1396p(d)(4)(C).


Since its inception, The Foundation For Those With Special Needs has generously donated over $500,000 to worthy charities and causes, with a focus on charities championed by trial lawyer advocates including Public Justice and The Florida Justice Association Research and Education Foundation.


The Foundation has supported numerous charities including:

"I recently engaged Synergy to assist with a complicated PTD settlement involving a substantial Medicare Set Aside. The claimant’s wife has been providing full time attendant care which is not Medicare covered. The Synergy nurse was able to do a full analysis of non-Medicare covered expenses which far exceeded the value of the MSA analysis performed by the carrier’s contracted MSA provider. The non- Medicare figures became the main focus of the settlement negotiations and more than doubled the value of the case. Although I could estimate the attendant care figures, the nurse added in other items that I would not have routinely considered. I also asked Synergy to evaluate the EC’s MSA as well as their prescription review. Synergy offered insight about the prescription donut hole which I did not have a clear understanding about. Again, their insight and information added a great deal of value to the overall settlement. Not only did I learn from Synergy but was able to educate my clients in the process. These are very complex and complicated areas; I will use Synergy again and again!"

"I have been very impressed by the results achieved by Synergy Lien Resolution Services. They saved my client over $108,000 in reducing a difficult ERISA lien. Their expertise was invaluable and resulted in a very happy client. Best money I ever spent. I wholeheartedly recommend them. You are doing your client a disservice if you don’t hire them to help you with your liens."
