Capped Hourly Rates
Legal Club plan attorneys have contracted to either charge $125.00 per hour, or when appropriate, give members a 40% discount off their usual and customary hourly rate. No competitor in the nation can make this claim or match us. After the free letters, calls and consultations take place, members and their attorneys will have to decide what course of action to take next. In most cases, members will have no choice and litigation may ensue. This is the point in time that Legal Club plan attorneys charge either the $125.00 hourly rate or give a 40% discount off their usual and customary hourly rate. Our competitors in the legal expense insurance business offer their members a 25% discount off normal hourly rates. In California, Florida, Texas, New York and most major cities, this will leave their members paying well over $200.00 per hour for extended legal care. The savings with Legal Club could be thousands of dollars. In fact, competitors required retainers alone could be thousands more than Legal Club because retainers are figured using the attorney's hourly rate and estimated time needed to service the member.
Contingency Fee Discounts
Attorneys often work on a contingency fee basis on cases such as personal injury and collections. This fee is usually expressed as a percentage of the amount collected or awarded. In some cases, fee maximums are set by law. In these matters, member's fees will be a 10% reduction of the state maximum rate or the attorney's usual rate, whichever is lower.
Law Areas Included
All areas of law are included in our plan. Legal Club does not exclude any type of law area. Many legal expense insurance products have waiting periods, pre-existing condition exclusions and limitations on usage. This is due to the fact that they have financial exposure to usage, just the same way an HMO does. As such, many types of law areas are excluded in their plans. Legal Club has no such exposure and as such, takes the opposite approach and encourages usages. In fact, 80% of all new members use their Legal Club plan within the first 90 days of joining.
