It used to be the case that the only way to obtain legal counsel was to pay exorbitant legal fees for a lawyer who would individually handle your case. As the legal profession developed, alternative methods have become more popular and available to the average consumer. The popularity of lawyers’ personal websites has increased, to the point where 44 percent of those polled reported that they’d be likely to consult such websites, as has the popularity of general websites where people can send questions.
Group legal insurance is another option by which people can attain legal protection in a less financially and emotionally demanding way. The idea behind prepaid legal insurance is that by paying a monthly or annual fee, an individual gains access to the whole host of legal services provided by a dedicated staff of lawyers, paralegals, and administrative staff.
This option is advantageous for a variety of reasons. It is great for people seeking a financially sound option of being assured, around the clock, that they have top-notch legal support in whatever field in which a legal issue might present itself. It is great for people who want a rapid and professional response to an issue when it unfolds, without having to make all the calls and contact all the lawyers themselves at the given moment when something goes wrong.
This is great for a variety of issues, such as if you are one of the 1.4 million people per year arrested on a DUI first offense. Do you want to be scrambling around for a lawyer immediately after such an event, or would you rather have it all taken care of in advance for you?
Legal plans for individuals offer a major emotional and financial benefit over the option of hiring one’s own attorney. Contact your local legal insurance group today to discover what they have in store.
