About My Business:

 

We give members access to professional legal counsel not only for traditional legal problems, but for everyday events such as buying a house or a car, creating a will, handling a problem with an insurance company, dealing with identity theft, and much more where legal review should be routine, but rarely is. These events can be among the most important events in a person's life, yet there is a tendency for them to take place without proper legal review. For Pre-Paid Legal members, access to legal counsel is only a toll-free phone call away. Pre-Paid Legal Services®, Inc. was one of the first companies in the United States organized solely to design, underwrite and market legal expense plans. For a low monthly fee of $26 or less, the Company's legal expense plans (referred to as memberships) offer a variety of legal services in a manner similar to medical reimbursement plans or HMOs. The Company currently provides legal services to over 1.4 million families across the U.S. and Canada. Plan benefits are delivered through a network of independent provider law firms. Members have direct, toll-free access to their provider law firm rather than having to comb through a yellow-page style directory for a referral. Provider firms are carefully selected and the quality of service is closely monitored to maintain the high standards of Pre-Paid Legal. Our members are served by a provider law firm which has been carefully screened and selected by Pre-Paid Legal. Using the plan, members simply call their provider firm directly at the toll-free number on their membership card when they have a legal question or problem. It’s really that simple. Pre-Paid Legal does all the work; no searching for a qualified lawyer, no claim forms, no worries about being able to afford a lawyer – just peace of mind. 1969 – July 11, 1969, Harland Stonecipher is involved in a head-on collision which results in serious legal fees. He has auto insurance to cover the damage to his car, medical insurance to cover the cost of his hospital stay, and even life insurance had the accident been fatal. But he has no coverage or protection for the legal bills that accumulate. He begins researching the industry of European legal expense plans. See the Pre-Paid Legal story for more information. Legal Plans A Pre-Paid Legal Life Events Legal Plan SM gives you access to quality law firms for $26 a month or less. Have you ever... Been overcharged for a repair? Received a speeding ticket? Been audited? Purchased a home? Tried to return a defective product? Lost a security deposit? Signed a contract? Prepared a will? Even though most people find themselves in these situations, the majority do not seek the advice or help of a qualified lawyer. Why? It may cost too much. They may not know where to begin. The process is intimidating. You only get as much justice as you can afford. If you don't know your rights, you simply don't have any! The top 10% of income earners can afford to have a lawyer on retainer and are accustomed to asking their lawyer for advice before making decisions. What about you? With Pre-Paid Legal: You know who to call. You're treated like the firm's most important client. A one year membership costs $312 or less. You are empowered by knowing your legal rights. Without Pre-Paid Legal: You may try to handle it yourself. You'll likely receive as much justice as you can afford. You may pay hundreds of dollars for ONE HOUR of a lawyer's time. If you don't know your rights, you don't have any! Pre-Paid Legal "levels the playing field" in the justice system. With a Pre-Paid legal plan you can say, "I'm going to talk to my lawyer about this." -- and mean it! How it works Members are served by a Provider Law Firm, which has been carefully screened and selected by Pre-Paid Legal. To use the Life Events Legal Plan SM, members simply call their Provider Law Firm directly at the toll-free number on their membership card when they have a legal question or problem. It's really that simple. Pre-Paid Legal does all the work; no flipping through a yellow-page style catalog for a qualified lawyer, no claim forms, no worries about being able to afford a lawyer - just peace of mind. We give members access to professional legal counsel not only for traditional legal problems, but for everyday events such as buying a house or a car, creating a will, handling a problem with an insurance company, dealing with identity theft, and much more where legal review should be routine, but rarely is. For Pre-Paid Legal members, access to legal counsel is only a toll-free phone call away. Identity Theft Shield You should know: Each year it happens to countless victims who innocently give their credit cards to servers in restaurants. Even if you are cautious when making an ATM transaction, identity thieves can be watching you type in your PIN or rig a bank machine to copy your bank card. Shredding may not be enough to keep dumpster divers from finding copies of your checks, credit card statements and other personal paperwork that leads to identity theft. It’s not just online purchases that are vulnerable to identity theft. In fact, online transactions are a small majority of identity fraud cases. You should know that identity theft happens every day to people from all walks of life. What can you do to combat this crime? The Identity Theft ShieldSM provides a suite of service designed with detection and restoration in mind. The Cost One year of Pre-Paid Legal benefits costs less than one month of many medical coverage plans. Your cost can be $26 or less! What other benefit costs so little and provides so much? Where available, the cost for the Identity Theft ShieldSM is just $9.95 per month if you have a Pre-Paid Legal membership, or $12.95 per month if you prefer to enroll in the Identity Theft ShieldSM without the legal service plan benefits. Both plans are simply sound investments. Lawyer fees can be in the hundreds of dollars per hour range. With only minimal use of the plan, it can pay for itself. And with crimes involving identity theft on the rise, the peace of mind provided by having identity theft coverage is a benefit you will appreciate. Law Firms Unlike other legal service providers, Pre-Paid Legal provides members with direct, toll-free access to a quality law firm when they have a legal need. Our provider law firm network is the result of over 30 years of experience working with tens of thousands of lawyers across North America. You can rest assured that their Provider Law Firm: Is an established firm Was selected to serve you only after extensive investigation by Pre-Paid Legal Is in good standing with their state Bar Association and the Law Society in Canada Has a service philosophy consistent with the high standards of Pre-Paid Legal Understands and empathizes with your legal problems Will provide you courteous and professional service Considers you their largest client in most cases Consistently receives "excellent" to "very good" overall ratings from other members! What our Provider Lawyers have to say... "We treat the individual member with the same care, concern and commitment as the richest client of our firm." -Mike Turpen, Provider Lawyer, Oklahoma "If we can't keep one Pre-Paid Legal member happy when he or she calls, we'll have Pre-Paid Legal asking us why we didn't." - Lynn Ross, Provider Lawyer, Texas "In the eight years of providing legal services for Pre-Paid Legal members I have seen that each and every day there is a tremendous value and benefit in having access to attorneys when you need one. We can help individuals deal with legal questions on the front end rather than deal with legal problems on the back end." - Charlie Anderson, Provider Lawyer, Alabama
