Prepaid legal insurance is just like it sounds. You pay a small advance premium to us. Then, when you need a lawyer for a covered claim, we pay the lawyer's fees. Need a contract or lease reviewed? Your plan attorney will review it for you. Charged with a misdemeanor or DUI? Your plan attorney will defend you. Most personal legal matters are fully covered. If the matter is not covered, our panel counsel will provide our prepaid legal plan policyholders with a significant discount from their usual rates. (Some limitations apply. See BENEFITS for more details).
