About Us

Advance Inheritance was founded in the Los Angeles area in February 2005. In the following 10 years we funded thousands of cash advances. We fund our own cash advances directly. We are not Brokers. That assures that our clients are working directly with us, and will receive the best terms and service available.

The Difference

We believe there is a big difference between how we and our competitors operate our business. We invest the time to help educate prospective clients. While we do not offer legal advice, we do thoroughly explain the probate legal process and how it will affect the position of our clients. Callers know very little regarding probate law, and they usually have many questions. We take the time to answer these questions, and we point out issues that may not be questioned.

Our competitors usually direct callers to "sales" people, whose job is to make a sale and move on. Many of our callers have already been in contact with our competitors, and report that they have been met with rude responses to their questions. We too wish to complete a deal, but we believe a good transaction includes our client fully understanding the process. For this reason, many of our clients return to us for an additional cash advance if the probate process continues longer than expected. If we believe that we are not the right people to meet the needs of a prospect, we will tell them and often direct them elsewhere.

The Team

Our principal Officer, James Leestma, is a California Probate Attorney, with many years of legal and Court experience. James was also instrumental in helping to write the most recent CA State Bill regulating our industry. This experience is the basis upon which we operate our company and protect our clients.

Our primary Underwriter, Staci Tenen, has almost 30 years of experience in funding loans and assignments related to the Probate and Trust areas. Her vast knowledge and experience helps guide our clients move effortlessly thorough a potentially complicated process.

Our Sales and Administrative Staff are fast and thorough, and they keep our clients well informed as the process moves through to conclusion. They will work with you to explain the probate process, until you are comfortable to move ahead with a cash advance. If a cash advance is not right for you, or we are not the right provider, we will do our best to direct to someone that can best assist you.
