What Would You Expect To Pay If You Had To Hire An Attorney?

Some people are willing to shell out $100 a year or more for "prepaid legal services" they don't actually need and may never use, in the often confused rhetoric of fear spread by sales associates of such plans. Because most people only need a lawyer a few times in their entire lives, if that, racking up hundreds of dollars over time, for unused services, may be a complete waste for most intelligent people.

In many states, rules of lawyers' ethics prohibit anyone who is not actually a lawyer from offering any sort of legal services and prohibits lawyers who are employed by such a company from actually giving any legal advice to customers, unless the entire company is organized as a professional law firm.

I have belonged to several organizations that offered "prepaid legal services" options at a "discount", including "unlimited consultations" on certain issues, or up to 10 hours of "attorney time" on specific issues, and I chose to "opt out" of ANY annual payment plan, even at $39 per year, let alone the premium plan (allowing more attorney time) for $99 per year.


It's not like having AAA motor-club membership, where you EXPECT to use it occasionally (flat tire, jump start, out of gas, breakdown in remote location, etc).
Unless you're engaging in risky legal behavior, you should almost never need a lawyer, and most plans wouldn't cover the whole cost if you ever do.

Are you an idiot? You might ask "What would you expect to pay if you had a medical problem and went to the hospital." So, you go first.

Add'l: Many unions, like the AFL-CIO, have prepaid legal plans. Get a copy.
