The Family Legal Care Quality Assurance Program monitors the standard rates of participating law firms to ensure all discounts are true. Take a look at our Comparison of ULB Member Costs vs. Standard Legal Fees.
The Family Legal Care Plan is often referred to as “Legal Health Care” because it is structured like medical insurance. After enrolling, all contact is direct, private, and confidential between you and your attorney. Under the ULB Plan, you and your family develop a personal and long-lasting relationship with your attorney; similar to the relationships you have with your family doctor, dentist, and other professionals.
For new members, there is a minimum twelve (12) month membership requirement. There is no waiting period, and once you receive your membership card, you contact your attorney directly for your legal needs. This guarantees your privileged client/attorney relationship.
