Colorado Defense Lawyers Association Members Offer Free Legal Advice on LawLine9

Denver, CO (PRWEB) November 20, 2010

As soon as the lines open, the phones start ringing and never stop. The specialization of law practices these days provides attorneys with few opportunities to answer legal questions of such a wide variety. Association President Brendan Powers, Esq., of the Denver-based law firm Spies, Powers & Robinson, joined Amy Cook-Olson, Esq., Murphy Decker Hensen & Cook-Olson; Brett Wendt, Esq., Lindquist & Vennum; Bradley Shefrin, Esq., Pryor Johnson Carney Karr Nixon; Jacquelyn Booker, Esq., Sutton & Gulley; Ian Mitchell, Esq., Thomas Pollart & Miller this week to participate in KUSA’s Lawline9 program. “We fielded calls on divorce, bankruptcy, tenant rights, employment law, workers compensation and disability insurance,” said Mr. Wendt, “People just wanted some reassurance that they were doing the right thing.”

Mr. Powers added, “Lawline9 is a great program and KUSA is to be commended on this community service. The experience serves as a good reminder to attorneys of the importance of participating in pro bono legal programs. So often, people just need a little help finding the resources that are out there.”

Prepaid Legal Service-What Do They Offer and is the Service Worth the Price?

Prepaid Legal Service-What Do They Offer and is the Service Worth the Price?

What is the Prepaid Legal Service, and why is this company so popular today? Prepaid legal is well known for the business opportunity and the many people that are making serious money selling the services.

However, many aren’t aware what they actually do. Here is a quick review of this to help you better understand the company, and if you want to get involved selling the services yourself.

Prepaid Legal sells legal insurance, so instead of risking those huge legal fees that occasionally come up even more for simple tasks, you just pay a small monthly fee and you don’t have to worry about it. At least, that’s what the company claims.

Instead of going without legal help in an emergency, as many people do, going with Prepaid Legal enables you to get a top lawyer for less than one dollar a day in some instances, which certainly sounds like a very reasonable price (although I will explain shortly why you probably won’t save any money with this).

One thing to keep in mind is that, even if you don’t have to use the lawyer’s service for a given month, you still have to pay the fee. The lawyers are available to help you with all different kinds of topics, including minor things such as speeding tickets.

Just about any legal help you need, you can get with the assistance of Prepaid Legal Services Inc. All you have to do, whenever you have a legal question, is ring them up and ask them whatever you need, and they will tell you what needs to be done. Assuming you are paying the monthly fee, you have access to them.

Your amount of phone calls is limited by the amount you are paying, and some plans enable you to have more than others. Also, the more you pay, the more expensive legal fees that are covered.

The basic Prepaid Legal Service only cover the absolute bare bones legal problems, whereas a higher monthly cost will enable you to have access to lawyers for pretty much anything.

However, while legal insurance sounds awesome and like you will save a lot of money with it, don’t be fooled. The reality is, while in some instances it can save you money over the short term, if you have a high priced legal issue, for example, by far more often than not you will lose out long term. Most people simply don’t use lawyers enough to make legal insurance worth it, despite what the companies claim.

Sure, spending thousands of dollars for one legal fee is no fun at all, which you sometimes have to do for larger problems without insurance. However, over the course of the time you have a prepaid legal service, you will likely spend more than that, as those monthly fees can really add up.

Even the more basic plans are not usually worth it for most people, and the only way they would be is if you plan on having a lot of legal expenses for the near future.

Therefore, don’t believe just anything you hear about them, because remember, in case you aren’t aware of it, the company has a wide range of distributors selling their legal fees. Oftentimes the person describing them will be a distributor themselves, so they obviously have a vested interest in whether you buy or not.

In my opinion, legal insurance is one of those things that you probably won’t need in all likelihood, right up there with pet insurance. I would recommend you stay away from the Prepaid Legal Service unless you really plan on using your lawyer a lot in the coming months or years.

Will my Custody Lawyer do a better job if I offer him more money on a Contingency Basis?

Question by Scott: Will my Custody Lawyer do a better job if I offer him more money on a Contingency Basis?
Me and my Girlfriend are currently fighting for custody of her 2 boys. We are currently paying the lawyer 100$ a week but I feel this is not enough for him to make this case to much of a priority for him. The Judge recently awarded the Father Temporary Custody, so it has us a little worried. There is good prof showing he is unfit to raise his kids or much drive to really do so properly, but you never know what could happen, especially if the lawyer drops the ball! I Soon will be coming into some money and am wondering if lawyers go for a “pay more if you win” situation? I was thinking in the range of 8,000 or up. Has anyone ever heard of this, or any lawyers out there that see this as something you yourself would go for?
Yes but as a incentive to pay closer to our case amongst the rest of his. And I will still be paying the agreed rate in the meantime….

Best answer:

Answer by Joe B
Custody lawyers don’t work off contingency fees as there’s no prize in the sky. I doubt you have a decent lawyer if he’s only charging 100 a week, most bill more than that for an hour.
