Pre-paid Legal Plans- What Services Are Offered?

Pondering a pre-paid legal plan? Heís a break-down of the services youíre most likely to get and also some legal documents you need to sign before you enroll.

Telephone and Office Consultation: You have boundless telephone access to a panel of attorneys regarding any legal matter of interest to you. You can also make brief consultation visits to your lawyer for up to thirty minutes a day for free.

The single condition placed on these two benefits is that you inquire about a different legal subject.

This aspect of coverage provided by legal plans is one of the most helpful because it promotes preventive law. Preventive law is very much like preventive medicine Ė it aids in anticipating potential problems and taking the appropriate legal steps so that unnecessary legal problems or risks are avoided. With a simple phone call to your lawyer you can avoid getting caught up in a hellish legal situation, and you can even ascertain legal rights you didnít even know you had.

Follow-Up Service: The panel of lawyers will make phone calls and write letters on your behalf to unpleasant third parties. Such follow-up service may be what it takes to fix many of your legal problems.

Legal document review: Simple personal legal documents, such as your sales contracts, insurance policies, and leases will be reviewed. Any questions of legal nature that you have about the documents will also get answered by your attorney.

Drafting of wills: A will is a written document that regulates how you want your property allocated after your death. Your attorney will draft your will according to your stateís laws so that itís valid when you die. They will also advise you on any provisions you might want to consider, such as appointing a guardian and establishing a trust.

Price cut on regular fees: Any additional services not covered in the written fee agreement will be at regular price Ė either hourly or flat Ė with a discount between 20 to 30%. These services generally include family matters, such as divorce and the custody of children, and court representation, such as traffic tickets and lawsuits.
