Our international network of over 22,000 attorneys is
professionally managed. Attorneys in our network average 19.4 years of experience. All
plan-member attorneys must have a "BV" or better rating if listed in
Martindale-Hubbell, provide us with a certificate of liability insurance, whether their
state requires it or not, be in good standing with their respective state bar, have a law
office in their respective state and carry a "Courtesy Rating" of "B"
or better. In addition, Legal Club files a quarterly background disciplinary report with
each state's attorney disciplinary department.
Courtesy ratings as well as background checks are done every three months. In addition,
attorney firms must complete quarterly surveys reaffirming the accuracy of our database
and knowledge of the plan. Besides Courtesy Rating surveys and quarterly background
checks, we answer to our members. Problems that arise with a particular attorney are
documented and can ultimately lead to expulsion from our network of attorneys.
Our attorneys abide by a discounted fee schedule in order to receive member referrals. For
example, plan member attorneys provide Individual / Family Legal Plan members with 7 Free
Services, charge a one-time fee for 8 Commonly Used Legal Services, give members a 10%
discount on all contingency based cases and contract to charge no more than $75.00 per
hour for any and all extended legal care.
We are not an insurance company and we have no financial relationship with our attorneys.
This means that all of our legal plans have no exclusions, limitations, claims, or red
tape. We provide the only legal plans in the country offered in all 50 states, Puerto Rico
the U.S. Virgin Islands and China with the exact same benefits in all. Our members are
entitled to use as many of our plan member attorneys, practicing any area of law
available, anywhere in the country, as often as they need. We are dedicated to bridging
the financial and emotional gap between Americans in need of legal care and the attorneys
that provide it.
Upon enrollment, our members are immediately assigned an attorney and given a welcome
package. Attorney assignments are based on language spoken, area of law needed, and
geographical location. Any additional attorney assignments or reassignments are given via
an 800 number over the phone.
