Pre-paid Legal Plans- What Services Are Offered?
Considering a pre-paid legal plan? He’s a run-down of the services you’re most likely to get and also some legal documents you need to sign before you enroll.
Telephone and Office Consultation: You have unlimited 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 at no cost to you.
The single restriction placed on these two benefits is that you inquire about a different legal matter.
This aspect of coverage provided by legal plans is one of the most beneficial because it promotes preventive law. Preventive law is very much like preventive medicine – it helps 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 may even ascertain legal rights you didn’t even know you had.
