How to use your Pre-Paid Legal Services Membership:
As a member, you have access to a Provider Law Firm that can help you with your legal questions and problems. They are referred to as your "Provider Law Firm" because they provide you with legal services under your membership.
Step 1: When you need an attorney, call the toll-free number listed on your permanent membership card you'll soon receive in the mail. You will reach your Provider Law Firm.
Step 2: The person answering your call will ask you for your name and membership number. Your membership number is listed on the back of your membership card. Have your membership card available when you make the call. Be sure the person you are talking to understands you are a new member with U.S. Legal Services
Step 3: The person answering your call will also ask you what type of legal concern you are calling about. This helps to choose a lawyer in the Provider Firm who knows the most about your legal question. You should then leave a number and a time when you can be reached. Your Provider Law Firm will return your call within 6 business hours.
