"One of the greatest challenges was not having access to the capital. We needed to really grow and scale the firm at the pace that we wanted."

TorkLaw Case Study

TorkLaw (, is a plaintiffs-only law firm headquartered in Los Angeles, California. The law firm has also expanded its offices to Arizona, Georgia, Illinois, Michigan, Nevada, Texas, and Washington state, as well as Washington, D.C. As a leader in personal injury and wrongful death litigation, TorkLaw manages between 750 to 800 cases in-house at any given time, in addition to another 3,000 cases with partner firms. Like so many other contingency fee law firms, prior to working with Esquire Bank, TorkLaw was self-financed. Every dollar coming into TorkLaw as income was invested back into the law firm to keep the engine running.

A familiar challenge

Faced with the familiar challenge of needing to free up capital to finance growth, Reza sought out a different model for financing the law firm’s cases. In 2020, TorkLaw acquired a law firm in Arizona, expanding its practice to include elder abuse and nursing home claims. One of the first people to reach out to Reza with congratulations was an Esquire Bank senior executive.

"What was amazing at the outset with Esquire Bank was how in-tune they were with how a law firm operates. More importantly, how much they wanted to learn and understand about our specific operations. It was an incredibly refreshing experience to start that conversation with Esquire Bank, understanding what it is they can do for us outside of just providing the money that’s needed.”

"The number one reason we moved our accounts to Esquire Bank was because they understood our business. They understood our model. And most importantly, they believed in our company and our organization and what we were trying to do."

Knowing that the business has the ability to do the things we want to do without having to worry about when the next case is going to settle, when the next fee is going to come in. Being able to do those things on our timing has provided unbelievable relief to my own personal life."
