"For Benefit Providers, Member Associations and Rewards Programs, Law Assist is extremely economical. For lawyers, it is a potential new source of referrals and revenue that would otherwise not be available."

Why join our network?
There is no cost to be a Law Assist network lawyer. Law Assists' customers are employees and members of various sponsoring organizations that provide benefits to their constituents. These are the beneficiaries to whom we provde services. Law Assist receives thousands of calls every year from beneficiaries in need of legal advice and services in all areas of law. Consequently, Law Assist is always looking for new, competent lawyers to be a part of our referral network, in order to give our clients the highest level of service available.
Why do lawyers receive referrals?
Law Assist receives calls from beneficiaries needing legal advice and services. Law Assist refers the beneficiary to member lawyers based on location and legal specialty. Both the lawyer and the beneficiary receive an automatic notification by email, detailing particulars of the referral.
What are network lawyers' obligations?
- Law Assist network lawyers must provide a no charge telephone OR an in person free ½ hour consultation to each referral.
- Law Assist network lawyers, or someone at your office, must respond to the Law Assist beneficiary within 24 hours of first being contacted.
- If the Law Assist beneficiary decides to retain a network lawyer’s services, the network lawyer must agree to reduce his or her fees by up to 25% (subject to some exceptions). Network lawyers may charge any hourly rate deemed appropriate.
The discount is not being paid to anybody. The Law Assist beneficiary receives the discount as part of the Law Assist benefit. Network lawyer’s who work on contingency agreements would reduce overall fees by up to 25%.
This is a free referral service. Once a network lawyer is retained by a Law Assist beneficiary, the relationship with Law Assist ends, and you treat the Law Assist beneficiary like any other client.
We do, however, offer Elite Membership opportunities - in limited numbers - which are designed to deliver the optimum number of referrals you wish to receive.
Please note: network lawyers may cancel enrollment with Law Assist at any time.
