Distance and Circumstances must be addressed
A group legal plan to be effective must be able to provide service wherever it is needed, and also deal with unusual situations. It is nice to be able to work with a local attorney, but that may not be possible if a plan member is miles from home. Additionally, legal matters which are above and beyond the expertise of a general practice attorney could arise. The group legal services offered need to cover a lot of bases.
Distance Can Be a Problem
Anyone who is traveling could end up with a legal problem somewhere far from home. Without the protection of a group legal plan this person may face large legal fees charged by a local attorney. A network of seasoned legal professionals provides great assistance. The attorneys are able to give legal solutions, even though the plan member is not from the area
Special Cases Require Specialized Legal Assistance
The practice of law is a diverse field with many varieties. Topics such as marine, aviation, environmental law, tax, and intellectual property are but a few of the specialties under the legal umbrella. In most situations a group legal plan member only needs a lawyer with general practice expertise. However, there are times when unique circumstances require an attorney with particular legal skills. These professionals can command higher than ordinary fees because of their focused knowledge. A person can quickly face legal costs in the thousands of dollars. Group legal services should be able to help not only find the right lawyer, but also provide fee relief. Countrywide Pre-Paid Legal Services has a legal referral network to help in both situations.
Making Sure Legal Help Is Available
The Countrywide referral system means that no matter where a plan member happens to be legal assistance can be quickly secured if needed. The attorneys are expected to provide the same high quality of service they provide their regular clients. Should unique legal expertise be needed it can be found within our network. Countrywide is aware of how the cost of a lawyer can skyrocket. It is why the attorneys we work with provide discounts of 25% off of scheduled and hourly rates. There is also a 10% discount for contingency fees. It is unfortunate but some attorneys try to pad the bill, taking advantage of somebody who is a stranger. It does not happen in the Countrywide system. We request the fee schedule from all lawyers in our network. We know what they charge and what they’re supposed to charge with the discount included. It is impossible cheat a group plan member.
