It’s not a matter of if, it’s when! Equal Access to the Judicial System, NOT UNLESS YOU’RE WEALTHY.
You can get as much justice as you can afford. What do the wealthy do before they sign any documents or make any financial moves? They consult an attorney. Why don’t you? It costs too much!
There is a service that levels the playing field, Prepaid Legal Services, Inc. They do for attorney and legal fees what health insurance does for doctor and medical fees.
How it works? The easiest way is to role play, you’ll be an attorney and I’ll be a prospective client.
How much do attorneys charge per hour? $150 to several hundred dollars? Just for example, consider yourself a $100-per-hour attorney.
I come to you and say I’m married and have two children, including a teenage driver.
What I would like to do is work out a flat monthly fee with you to provide legal services for me, my spouse, and my children. I’m going to outline some needs we have. As I go through these needs, I want you to add them up at $100 per hour. Then I want you to tell me how much you would have to charge each month for all these services.
First, I would want to be able to pick up the phone and talk with you about any legal matters, personal or business. Of course I will call only during your regular business hours.
Plus, when we need anything of a personal legal nature such as a letter written, a phone call made, or a contract reviewed, we would want you to do that for us too.
I would also like for you to draft my Will. Then each year, I would like you to review and update it for me if needed.
I want to have this access throughout the United States. If I’m traveling in another state and need legal advice, I expect you to refer me to an attorney in that state. I want that attorney to bill you, and I want you to pay that bill out of this monthly fee arrangement we set up.
In addition I want you to protect me and my family from the 5 areas of identity theft. Driver’s License, Social Security, Medical, Character/Criminal and Financial Identity Theft are all very real and, if stolen, can cost me up to 600 hours to repair. I will give you a limited power of attorney and you will work to my restore my identity to where it was prior to the theft.
Now, if you were my attorney, what flat monthly fee would you charge me for all these services?
$ 100.00 per month? $ 500?$ 1,000? More? Less?
You can get this service and a lot more for less than the cost of a bottle of water per day!
