Company Provides Legal Insurance for Routine Needs to Unexpected Events
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
AUSTIN, Texas—Texas Legal, founded by the State Bar of Texas and the Texas Legislature in 1972, offers comprehensive legal coverage for every stage in life such as adoptions, divorces and estate planning. The company was formerly known as “Texas Legal Protection Plan.” Membership covers legal expenses much like health insurance covers medical expenses. A low monthly fee gives members access to a network of attorneys throughout the state. ￼
“Texas Legal provides Texans an affordable way to pay for most legal issues,” James “Jim” Buck, president of Texas Legal, said. “Hiring an attorney or having funds readily available when an attorney is needed is a challenging task for most consumers. We help Texans get the legal help they need and make the process easy for them.”
According to a study conducted by the Research Intelligence Group, 58 million Americans sought an attorney during 2012, and 110 million have sought legal counsel at least once in their lives. This underscores the importance of having a legal plan in place to help consumers remove the uncertainty about seeking legal services.
Texas Legal provides legal insurance for companies, groups and individuals throughout the state. It is the only nonprofit legal insurance company in Texas that offers plans for individuals who are not part of a group plan.
The policy for one year for a family costs about the same as one hour of an attorney’s time and can be used for a wide variety of legal issues, including estate planning, adoptions, divorce, foreclosure, identity theft, traffic tickets, bankruptcy and more. The member can choose his/her attorney from a network of attorneys across the state and can use different attorneys depending on the issue they are facing. Texas Legal members also have unlimited access to a free legal hotline.
