For the last fifteen years Chuck and his firm have been instrumental in our success for our clients. The settlement process was historically one sided in favor of the defense which held all the information relating to annuities, this changed when we associated Chuck in our cases. He levels the playing field with big insurance and enables us to take control of the settlement process. Additionally, Chuck has a wealth of financial knowledge and experience which he brings to the table to help guide client who may have little experience in the world of money management. We do not walk into any major settlement conference without Premier Settlement Services and Chuck in our corner.

Of all of the structured settlement analysts I have utilized over the past many years, there is one who stands out. Once I started working with Chuck Derenne, I have not worked with anyone else. Chuck responds immediately to any request for assistance; I have never had him fail to assist me even on an instance notice. Whether it is a very minor accident, or an accident involving major injuries, Chuck is able to assist. Drawing upon his extensive background and experience, he researches the needs of the client and goes to the marketplace to find ways to meet those needs in the best possible fashion. Moreover, Chuck is extremely ethical and will provide assistance even in cases where there is absolutely no personal benefit to him. I cannot say more about this fine man and look forward to working with him in the future.

Originally when structured settlements first came out, it was defense or insurance company driven. They had the expertise and they had the experience. What we quickly found out was that they were not in a position to help us. That wasn't their duty. That wasn't their purpose.

We have seen situations where a defense annuity broker may have a sweetheart deal with the defendant liability insurance company and the way that shakes out disadvantages our client. We don't want that to occur. And so by relying on Chuck Derenne, we say to the defendant, "Look, if there's going to be a structure here, we're going to be the ones to make the decision and we're going to tell you how much is going to be structured and with what companies and on our terms". And by taking control of the process with Chuck's help, we serve our clients much better than by walking into a mediation and turning it over to the defense. They may bring their people, but their people will not be involved in the decision making. I know Chuck has our best interests and our clients' best interests at heart. I don't want to have to rely or have my clients rely on somebody I don't know. That's Chuck's job and he does it very, very well.

There is none other. Period. I have been practicing law for thirty years on the state and national level and have been approached by a lot of strucdture brokers, people with “new ideas”, the “next best thing”, well, you get the idea. I want several things in a structure and a structure broker. I want integrity. I want a person whose word I can take to the bank. Chuck has integrity I require. I want responsiveness. If I need a question answered now, I want a broker who will give me that answer. Now. Chuck is extremely responsive to the needs of my client and myself. I want a plaintiff’s broker. Not someonw who does both sides. I want a broker who is dedicated to helping the people I help, not someone who works for insurance companies. Chuck is dedicated to helping those that need help, and he will work to secure the best structure for your client. I want a relationship. I want someone who I feel comfortable with, someone who I know has my client’s best interests at heart. And someone I can trust. Chuck is all that, and more. When I need a structure, there is only one person to call: Chuck Derenne

I use Chuck Derenne and Premier Settlements for the simple reason that I sleep better at night knowing things will be done right. It is a huge sense of responsibility that I have for my client’s protection. When we do a structured settlement, invariably the money we secure is for someone that has no ability to protect themselves. Using someone who has consistently been on the cutting edge of plaintiff’s issues is assurance for our clients that no only will they receive the best product on the market, but that every detail of the transaction will be meticulously constructed for their benefit. Over the last decade Chuck has proven over and over again, if you don’t have someone in your client’s corner, you really are not doing your job at all and if you worry about your client’s security into perpetuity, place the product with Premier and rest easy knowing you have given them the best advocacy they can get.

I have had the pleasure of working with Chuck Derenne for many years. He is my go-to guy in every settlement discussion. Chuck is extremely well versed in structured settlements and the economic realities of helping my clients with lifetime annuities. He works every file hard and takes on every client as I do, to do the very best possible. You cannot have a better person on your team than Chuck for this purpose.

In my 18 years of handling personal injury claims I have utilized the services of several different structured settlement brokers. Chuck Derenne is by far the best. He is detail oriented and extremely responsive. Whether it be shopping around for the best rate for our clients, attentively reviewing assignment paperwork, or taking the time to make sure the client is completely informed about all the details, Chuck does a great job. I highly recommend Premier Settlement Services as the Structure Settlement Broker of choice…

Over the many years I have worked with Chuck I have been impressed with his knowledge about and his creativeness in dealing with structured settlements. Each case presents a unique set of circumstances and Chuck has a way of walking me through it so I can comfortable explain all aspects of the structure to my client. Chuck’s willingness to give advice even in cases the insurance companies insist on using their own broker is invaluable.

Chuck Derenne has performed outstanding work for me on several 6 and 7 figure results. In each case from the beginning, he helped strategize the approach to ensure maximum choice and economic benefit for the client. He works hard, is responsive and hustles (with only the positive connotations intended) to get the job done. He is thorough, knowledgeable, and transparent in an industry where transparency seems difficult to find. Now I call him before any significant mediation is scheduled. I have referred him to others without hesitation and each time I have received further confirmation that he is the right choice.

There are two qualities you want in a settlement broker: trust and talent. Chuck Derenne has both in abundance. You can trust that he is working for the plaintiff, and he has talent for getting the best rate with full disclosure of costs, or he’ll tell you. In either case, you and your clients win.

A colleague introduced me to Chuck Derenne of Premier Settlement Services at a Wisconsin Association for Justice (then Wisconsin Association of Trial Lawyers) Awards Ceremony and sung his praises. After having Chuck play a very active and involved role in the settlement of one of 2007’s largest reported personal injury settlements, I too am singing his praises. Chuck gave us outstanding guidance and service throughout the entire process. Chuck is a true professional with a strong commitment to the injured victim and their attorneys and I would recommend him on any case with structured settlement possibilities.

Chuck has been an enormously valuable asset that I have had available to me during negotiations and mediations. He knows more about his (structures), I honestly believe, than anybody I have ever dealt with in this country.

In the past, the insurance company paying the settlement almost always attempted to dictate the broker placing the structure. When I sought to open a dialogue about this, I met a stone wall. Still and all, it struck me that the insurance company-picked broker had a conflict of interest. I heard about you (Chuck) through the grapevine and called you. You didn’t mince words. In fifteen minutes you told me more about my options with a structure than I had learned in twenty years of practice. Keep up the good work.

I have been a practicing personal injury attorney for nearly thirty-five years. In that time, I have worked with many structured settlement brokers. Charles Derenne is , far and away, the best such broker I have ever worked with. You need to involve him early on, and he will come up with creative ideas to not only help you settle your case but also ensure that your client is financially protected for life. Mr. Derenne is highly responsive to all inquiries. He returns telephone calls and e-mails almost on the spot. For many years now, I do not consider any other brokers when I am involved in any case that may require the purchase of a structured settlement annuity. Mr. Derenne’s work product, from beginning to end, is impeccable.

Charles J. Derenne at Premier Settlement Services, Inc. has been an invaluable resource for me over many years. I represent plaintiffs and I needed a structured settlement specialist whose only interest is the best interest of my clients. Chuck has filled that role magnificently. Chuck has also remained on the cutting edge when it comes to structured settlements which are both workable and legal. Many minor plaintiffs in future years will benefit from the structured settlements that Chuck Derenne has engineered. He is entitled to the full confident of any plaintiff’s lawyer.
