Why is having a legal plan so important?


Because access to quality, affordable legal
representation is more important than you may think.


There are many times in life when you may need the services of a qualified attorney, including when you’re purchasing a home, drafting a will, or dealing with elder care or debt issues.
Yet, according to a study conducted by the American Bar Association, many people who need legal help do not seek it — in part because they fear the cost and don’t know how to find the right attorney.


Because finding an attorney on your own can be timeconsuming
and expensive.


If you’ve ever had to hire an attorney, you know that attorney fees can quickly add up for even the most basic legal services. And there’s always the problem of finding a qualified attorney who is right for the job. That could take hours or even days.


MetLaw®, the group legal plan available through Hyatt Legal Plans, makes things simple for you. You get the attorney you need at a cost that’s very affordable, with access by telephone or in-person for advice on an unlimited number of personal legal matters, and representation for a wide variety of legal services.


MetLaw could save you hundreds of dollars in attorney fees for common legal services like these:


o Estate planning documents, including Wills and Trusts
o Real estate matters
o Identity theft defense
o Financial matters, such as debt-collection defense
o Traffic offenses
o Document review
o Family Law, including adoption and name change
o Advice and consultation on personal legal matters
o And more

 

How can MetLaw benefit you?

Low monthly cost for unlimited use of the plan.


No matter how many times you use a Plan Attorney over the course of
the year for covered legal matters, all you pay is your monthly premium,
no copayments, and no deductibles.
