For matters that require additional assistance beyond the free legal services, it may be necessary to retain the attorney to represent you.  If additional assistance is necessary, the plan provides a reduced hourly rate. Court costs, filing fees and time charged for travel to-and-from any courts are additional.

Yes they can.  Upon completion of an initial consultation, you and your attorney may decide to proceed with further legal action.  In certain situations, attorney liability may require plan attorneys to ask for a retainer from the member prior to providing some of the free legal services.  This may be required because, when an attorney sends a letter or makes a phone call on your behalf, the attorney may be committed to respond to a follow up letter or phone call from the other party.

Legal matters can unexpectedly occur.  When a matter arises, how quickly you react can be critical.  Plus, taking advantage of the FREE Simple Will with FREE annual updates included in the plan, can cover the cost of the membership each year.

Yes.  The legal plans include phone and face-to-face consultations with live attorneys.  Since attorneys are often in deposition or court and as such they may not call back for two or three days.  Accepting a case is left to the personal judgement of the attorney.  The attorney may determine that the case lacks merit in which case, they are truly trying to save the member the time and money of pursuing a potential losing case.  In this situation, members should contact Member Services and request another attorney.  They may use as many plan member attorneys as they like.  Results with the next attorney could differ.
