When you or a family member has a legal concern, wouldn’t it be nice to just pick up the phone, receive legal advice and not have to worry about the cost? Well now you can do just that!
With access to a nationwide network of plan attorneys, you, your spouse and eligible dependents* can call any time during normal business hours (8:00 AM to 8:00 PM EST) for a referral to an attorney with whom you can consult about any new legal matter and you don’t have to worry about the cost. The plan attorney will discuss your legal questions with you and assist you in deciding upon a course of action. The plan attorney will consult with you, review important legal documents (6 page maximum) or draft a Simple Will, all at no charge.

Discount on Contingency Based Cases
Contingency fee will be a 10% reduction of the state maximum rate or the attorney’s usual rate, whichever is lower.
In the case of extended legal care, plan attorneys may ask you for a retainer. Any retainer sought will be computed by multiplying the number of hours a plan attorney believes a case will take, by the plan’s discounted hourly rate. For instance, 10 hours x $125.00 = a retainer of $1,250.00. Any unused portion of the retainer will be returned to you.
Reduced Hourly Rate
Family Legal Plan attorneys contract to never charge more than $125.00 per hour for legal care that goes beyond the free and discounted services. No competitor in the nation can make this claim or match us. This is where the real savings take place. After the free letters, calls and consultations take place, members and their attorneys will have to decide what course of action to take next. In some cases, members may not have a choice and litigation may ensue. This is the point in time that the attorneys charge the $125.00 hourly rate for legal care.
Law Areas Included
All areas are included in the Family Legal Plan. The Family Legal Club does not exclude any type of law area.
