HOW CAN WE HELP?
IF YOU ARE YOU A….
WHAT WE OFFER
Employers and Human Resources
Smart managers know that it’s not enough to just provide any kind of benefit to employees. An intelligent workforce knows whether or not an employee paid benefit is worth having, and they are not going to spend any money to pay for a benefit that isn’t much more than window dressing and provides little assistance. There’s got to be a solid return on investment with great services for every penny spent. A group legal plan devised by AltCourt Pre-Paid Legal Services does exactly that.
Employees need to have the kind of service that helps them work through issues like adoption, landlord – tenant issues, and disputes over property. AltCourt has a number of services that can offer assistance in these matters, as well as drafting a will, immigration issues, and other problems that take employees concentration away from productive work. Any employer wants to have an employee paid benefit that is not going to be a pain the neck to administer. AltCourt wants to make things as easy as possible and our group legal plans include some of these attractive features for employers:
Human resources is always sensitive to the needs of employees, and wants to be assured that every one of them is treated with courtesy and respect. AltCourt agrees with that type of empathy, and the lawyers in our network have extensive legal knowledge and superior personal skills. Some of our services that place a very high emphasis on customer service include unlimited telephone consultation, review of contracts and other legal forms, and unlimited telephone calls and letters on behalf of the plan member. These are some of the special touches that let people know that an employee paid benefit from AltCourt treats everyone as an individual and not a statistic.
We’ve been providing companies with group legal plans since 1987 and we know that employers come in all types. That is a reason why we offer flexibility in structure so that an employer can better create a plan that suits the needs of the employees. With our legal services options, you can tailor your benefits package to meet your employees’ ability to pay as well as your company’s desired fiscal involvement. AltCourt provides three very attractive alternatives:
Plan administration is incredibly easy and a AltCourt group legal plan fits in with any comprehensive employee benefit program. That is something any human resources department would want to have, and once in place the AltCourt plan will result in:
The last benefit is without a doubt the best feature. And, it goes without saying that legal service will be provided by lawyers who truly care about an individual’s needs and seek to remedy any problem as quickly as possible.
AltCourt staff will be made available to hold either one-on-one sessions or group meetings to inform employees about the benefits of the group legal plan and answer any questions. We conduct these meetings during open enrollment periods, or whenever it is most convenient.
Most employees use their legal plan 4.2 times a year. AltCourt guarantees that your employees can have the service of a highly qualified attorney when the need arises, and before a situation becomes a problem.

Members and employees have the right to expect excellent benefits from any voluntary benefit plan which they enroll in. That is exactly what they can anticipate when they start to use a group legal plan designed by AltCourt Pre-Paid Legal Services. Although our plans do not cover work-related issues, the Personal Legal Safeguard Plan allows members to have direct access to legal advice for all kinds of issues, including:
These are the kind of benefits that make a difference. AltCourt goes one step further when it comes to customer service. It is our belief that an employee paid benefit should include empathy and sensitivity. Any group legal plan we design is intended to be of service. The lawyers who are part of our network are experienced and well versed in the law, but they also have the kind of personal skills we want to see in anyone who provides group legal services. We simply won’t settle for anything less.
These lawyers go the distance for all members employees enrolled in any of our group legal plans. Members can receive assistance at drastically reduced rates and certain benefits, such as unlimited telephone calls, at no cost. The attorneys of a AltCourt group legal plan will make the phone calls and write the letters necessary to resolve issues before they go before a judge. That’s important because the sooner the issue is resolved, the better. Using the voluntary benefit also means that a person doesn’t have to constantly go to human resources to get issues resolved. While human resources is always glad to be of help, the legal benefits allow the staff people to concentrate on even more important matters to make the workplace more enjoyable place to be.
It is estimated that members will use a group legal plan approximately 4.2 times a year. That is for all kinds of reasons, and can be as minor as review of a contract or as important as the closing on a house. What is great about a AltCourt Pre-Paid Legal Services plan is that the cost is extremely low and the customer service is very, very high. It also means that outside legal problems are the last thing any member needs to worry about during the workday.
We’ll Take You Through The Process Step-By-Step
Our customer service is very much a hands on effort, and our AltCourt staff makes a point of walking a person carefully through all that is needed to have benefits administered and processed. That extra touch is important because so many people are nervous when it comes to legal matters. We do all that we can to reduce such unnecessary stress. Everything is explained very carefully and members are encouraged to ask as many questions as necessary to get a full understanding. The attorneys also anticipate and encourage questions. Members should expect this kind of sensitivity from any employee paid benefit. It is exactly what AltCourt plans provide.
We welcome the opportunity to explain to human resources or executive management all the things that we can provide for employees. We invite interested parties to contact us and give us the chance to show how legal issues can be quickly handled to use of our plan services. No one should have to sit in their cubicle and stew over issues that involve legal counsel. We can take the pressure off a person’s mind and allow him or her to concentrate more fully on being the most productive employee an organization ever had.
We invite you to contact us with any questions you may have. Call us at 1-251-444-6174 or fill out our contact form for a speedy response.

Health Insurance Brokers Can Find New Business with Our Plans
The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 established a healthcare insurance exchange that allows individuals to choose their own plans, effectively eliminating the need for many brokers and consultants who sell to individuals, small businesses and large corporations.

Employee Assistance Programs (EAPs)
Modern life is full of stress and excessive anxiety. It happens too often that employees are distracted by personal problems at work, which decreases their ability to work efficiently and complete important projects. As human resources know very well, Employee Assistance Programs (EAPs) provide employees with the kind of counseling and aid needed to resolve domestic private problems. EAPs are usually made available to employees, their spouses and any dependents. These benefits help resolve problems outside of work and include issues that cause personal stress, such as family disputes, health and wellness matters, psychological issues, elder care, non-work related criminal charges and other challenges. A legal benefit may easily be tied to an EAP.
At AltCourt Pre-Paid Legal Services the group legal services we provide are often utilized as the legal component of EAPs for various industries and in countless markets. With our prepaid group legal plans, we can provide your employees with a legal benefit that would include attorney assistance from our diverse network of legal professionals. We can tailor make a specific legal service to add to your existing EAP including telephone advice and face to face consultations. Although we do not handle work-related issues with our group legal service, AltCourt attorneys are skilled in a variety of common practice areas, including family law, criminal matters and immigration.
Employers who are concerned about productivity understand the importance of EAPs. On average, distracted employees are 21% less productive than when they’re not stressed by outside issues. This lack of productivity costs American companies billions of dollars a year. Using AltCourt’s group legal services, though, a company can help employees reduce absenteeism and presenteeism, as well as cut back on health-related issues such as depression and hypertension.
The legal benefit AltCourt offers is not difficult at all to be administered. Enrollment is easy and we can even work with brokers or third-party administrators to complete enrollment. Our specific legal services will fit seamlessly into any existing EAP structure and AltCourt will provide training for the plan administrator to ensure complete and smooth integration. We’ll also provide any employer with all the marketing materials needed to inform the employees about AltCourt legal benefit plans, including brochures, email communications and banner advertisements, as well as a simple-to-use webpage for employee registration.
Something else is provided that is important for any employee using the corporate EAP service. These hard-working people are in a stressed or anxious state of mind and need a gentle touch. AltCourt attorneys provide the kind of customer service that is needed in such situations. These legal professionals treat every plan member as if he or she were a long time client. The legal benefit AltCourt provides includes face-to-face consultations and these are conducted with great patience. Every question that a plan member has will be answered as carefully and as completely as possible. Human resources want all employees to be treated well. We feel the same way and that is why superior customer service skills are expected of every attorney in our network.
We also believe in providing exactly what the employer wants. We review the group legal services available with every perspective client and point out the legal benefit in each option. AltCourt is flexible enough to provide exactly what the organization wants. While we will offer suggestions and possibilities, it is understood that the final draft is the decision of the client. We will deliver it in a way that is easy to administer and provides the greatest possible benefit for the largest number of plan members.
We appreciate any inquiries that are made about our services. To find out more, please feel free to call us at 1-251-444-6174 or fill out our contact form for a speedy response.
The clients for whom we provide service are not just limited to corporations and small businesses. At AltCourt Pre-Paid Legal Services we work with numerous faith-based organizations, trade associations, professional organizations and other associations to create group legal plans that make sense for specific populations. We know associations would like to offer legal benefit plans to their membership because legal services can make life so much easier. AltCourt also understands that associations are different from each other, and the group legal plans for such organizations will have to be tailor-made. That is certainly not a difficult for us to do. We can develop a legal benefit that fits the needs of any group. Our desire is to develop the legal services plan that is most in tune with the needs of both the given association and the members who are part of it. At the same time, we want to provide the kind of legal benefit that is very easy to afford and easy to administer at the same time.

Excellent question! Here are a few reasons why you should consider offering a legal benefit designed by AltCourt:

Our attorneys provide face-to-face consultations and treat any plan member as if he or she was a longtime client. Associations can be assured that the group legal services provided will be done in a sympathetic and caring way.
Most people don’t have hundreds or even thousands of dollars on hand to retain private counsel for family legal matters, contract/document disputes, or small claims court cases. This is especially true if the organization caters to the elderly, retirement groups or other populations with special needs. Our Personal Legal Safeguard Plan can provide all the necessary legal resources the association’s membership may require. All of it is offered patiently and with high levels of courtesy.

How Can Prepaid Legal Services Benefit Our Members?
