Do I need approval from my attorney in order to take an advance?

No, you do NOT need approval from your attorney to take an advance. The case is proprietary to you and you have rights to your advance in which your attorney has no authority to dissuade you from taking. In fact, there are no risks associated to your attorney in conjunction with the “advance” since the attorney is ALWAYS paid prior to Bridgeview. Your attorney is NOT affected in any way by your advance and therefore has no right to “disallow” you from obtaining the needed funding.
