Working With Our Legal Service Providers

Seek help early

By the time it occurs to you that legal advice may be needed, it probably is. The earlier you seek help, the more options you and the Legal Service Provider will have and the greater your chances of eliminating the problem altogether. Preventative law works!

Establish clear ground rules

A good relationship with the Legal Service Provider depends on good communication and a firm understanding of your respective needs and responsibilities.

Nothing breeds misunderstanding more than assumptions. Be clear about what you want. Ask questions and listen to the answers. The Legal Service Provider should listen carefully to you as well. They should clearly explain your options and discuss a timetable.

Respect the Legal Service Provider's judgement

The Legal Service Provider is working with you in mind and should not make any important decisions without discussing them with you. You must, however, respect their judgement and allow them to do their job. Remember that the law does   not always allow a resolution to your problem in a way that is completely satisfactory to you.

Allow the Legal Service Provider to be an intermediary

It is not always necessary to take a case to court. Trials are costly and sometimes the solution may be reached amicably without going to court, through negotiation or a mediation process.

What level of contact will you have with the Legal Service Provider

Some people want 'yes or no" answers, others want full explanations. Some clients want the solicitor to do everything and just tell them when it's done. Be sure to discuss what level of contact you want. The Legal Service Provider will give you legal advice but cannot advise you accurately if you do not follow the advice given. Keep the lines of communication open.

What should you expect if your case requires representation

If, based on the consultation, it is determined that your matter requires representation, you may be required to pay a retainer fee for services beyond contract benefits. This applies to all pre-existing conditions as well as to assistance and/or representation not fully covered under your contract.

What should you do if things don't seem to be going well with your case

If the legal matter isn't going the way you expected, if nothing seems to be happening or if you don't understand what is happening, speak up. Call the Legal Service Provider if you want more information. Also, let a Pre-Paid Legal customer service representative know about the situation and we will be happy to assist you, where possible.

"We treat the individual member with the same care, concern and commitment as the largest client of our firm." - Bennett Carrol Solicitors

"In the years of providing legal services to Pre-Paid Legal members I have seen that each and every day there is a tremendous value and benefit in having access to a lawyer when you need one. If we can help an individual to resolve their legal issues before they become a legal problem, it makes all the difference" - Gramercy Legal

"Pre-Paid Legal has provided a valuable work flow for our Law Firm, and having the opportunity to help and resolve their members issues has been both rewarding and meaningful." - Swan River Law
