About Us

LegalEASE, a Legal Access Company, is an employee benefits company that provides an easy-to-use legal service platform for your employees. Since 1971, LegalEASE continues to offer robust Legal Insurance Plans to employers who see the benefit in providing this valuable service to their employees. LegalEASE plans cover employees’ legal needs, offer experienced attorneys close-by to choose from, and help them connect quickly to the right provider. Featuring the largest and most developed Plan Attorney Network (20,560+ and strictest credentialling standards in industry), and our unique Matching and Compatibility infrastructure, LegalEASE provides high-touch professional services that have and will continue to save your company and employees money, time, and unnecessary stress.

At LegalEASE, we want employees to get the most out of their benefit plan, that’s why we created our Compatibility/Matching System that enables employees to find the best attorney for their legal need that is closest to them. Matching can happen online or via our LegalEASE Advocates, who will walk the employee through the legal process, saving them time and reducing stress.

It is important for us to provide a white-glove service to our Members during their most stressful times. We take into consideration the employee’s feelings about their legal issue, and take the extra step in the attorney search process by providing an Advocate to the Member, who will remain with them throughout their case.

 

Our Strengths

Attorney Network:
For 50 years, we have established one of the oldest and most comprehensive networks of attorneys in the legal industry. With over 20,500 participating plan attorneys, LegalEASE is able to offer a high-quality attorney network, vetted upon admission via our rigorous credentialing process and before every Member is matched.
 
Search for An Attorney:
Not only do we have a comprehensive attorney network, but we provide several easy ways for employees to discover their perfect fit. First, we provide the flexibility to use your own attorney. That’s right, we have flexible benefit levels that can permit employees to use their own attorney. Second, the employee can search through our online attorney network. Employees are most familiar with this method of finding a provider because they can conveniently locate and contact a plan attorney by searching for their specific area of law (over 60 areas) and the location of the legal matter. Or third, through our concierge service, where members begin by simply calling in and speaking with a live LegalEASE advocate. This is an excellent method for members that do not know where to start, have an escalated or complex legal issue, or have no time to contact attorneys themselves.
