Legal service plans bring significant value to the average employee who does not have an attorney and/or is not familiar with the legal system. There are several approaches, ranging from a low-cost plan option that provides access to a network of attorneys, with free consultations, up to a full service program which could have as much as 46 hours of legal services pre-paid for a family during the year.
Most offer free services such as simple wills, living trusts, etc. Attorneys in these legal service networks are usually very competent attorneys since the law firms find this kind of work to be a good source for contingent fees. These plans are usually more popular when identity theft, immigration law, and debt counseling are included as benefits.
