Are you working for a company that offers you a Legal Plan? Most companies don’t, and even if they do, the legal plan they offer may not satisfy your needs. What most people don’t realize is a legal plan can help protect you and your family. How do you know whether or not you need a legal plan?
A legal plan provides access to basic legal services. With a legal plan, you’re able to call and get advice from an attorney regarding any of your covered legal issues. You can discuss the issues, gain a clear understanding of your rights and options, and decide upon a course of action. This saves you time spent having to research and choose an attorney on your own. Everyone needs an attorney at some point in their lives. Legal issues arise when you buy or sell your home, get married, or have a baby. Others may need legal advice fairly often.
A basic legal plan usually includes:
- Consultation calls with a local, qualified lawyer;
- Preparation of specific documents, such as a personal will;
- Review of important legal documents like employment contracts and leases;
- Assistance with tax preparation; and
- Discounts on complex legal matters requiring a specialist, such as criminal trials or bankruptcies.
Fortier Insurance can help you choose a legal plan that fits your needs. What services will you need right away? Do you need a will prepared, or a lease reviewed? What services do you anticipate needing in the future? Will you be going through a divorce or modifying a custody order?
If you own your own business, there are legal matters that come up all the time. Having immediate access to a qualified attorney can be crucial to your success. Consider a specialized business legal plan to cover all your business needs. Having to consult an attorney on your own can result in a huge cost, but with a legal plan, you’re able to consult on an unlimited number of legal matters.
Think of it as having an attorney on-call.
