The organization was set up by the State Bar of Texas and the Texas Legislature decades ago and is the trusted, preferred service to connect Texans to the lawyer they need, when they need. In fact, Texas Legal is the only legal insurance provider governed by the Texas Department of Insurance (TDI), which in our eyes – and yes of our clients too – is very powerful. The Producer Program is easy to activate, having legal insurance is a great value-add we can extend to our clients, and every plan we sell becomes a new revenue stream for us,” said Richard Peace, State Manager, Financial Benefits Services, LLC.
Agents who are part of the Texas Legal Producer Program sign up individuals or group members for TDI-regulated legal insurance plans that deliver comprehensive legal protection at an affordable price. Subscribers to the plan gain access to the huge Texas Legal attorney network of lawyers across Texas who address a wide variety of legal challenges. Agents receive regular competitive commission checks and also benefit from thorough Texas Legal go-to-market support, from joint marketing to deal support.
“There is only one preferred provider of legal insurance as selected by the State Bar of Texas, only one provider with a TDI-regulated legal insurance plan,” said Scott Shapard, executive vice president of Employee Benefits, Higginbotham, a Fort Worth based insurance broker that services all of Texas. “We guarantee our clients across Texas the very best insurance, and Texas Legal fits that bill. Now, they’ve made it even easier – and more profitable – for us to extend these benefits to our customers.”
