Legal Consultations, Referrals and
With the increasing complexity surrounding marriage, custody and child support, eldercare law, financial, credit, debt, and tax related issues, many of us find a need for legal services. Yet, when confronted with legal issues, most individuals do not know where to turn to obtain professional guidance and we find the process can be a time-consuming and often times an expensive undertaking. The HealthQuest EAP Legal Consultation Service is a comprehensive legal service designed to assist employees in finding answers and affordable legal resources during their time of need. There is no charge for the service and it is completely confidential.
In order to provide the very best in legal assistance, our EAP has developed a strategic partnership with an established national referral network of attorneys to provide employees and their family members with one of the largest and most complete national and international network of fully credentialed attorneys in the industry. All attorneys in the network have a minimum of five years experience and are required to meet the following requirements every two (2) years: education and licensure is verified, background checks are completed, proof of professional liability insurance obtained, and the attorney is verified to be in good standing with the local BAR Association.
The service covers a wide variety of issues including family and domestic law, wills, power of attorney, medical directives, tax law, real estate matters, motor vehicle questions, civil issues, criminal situations, elder law matters and estate planning. Note: employer-employee related issues such as employment law, workers compensation, and other human resource related issues are not covered.
Key components of the HealthQuest EAP legal service include:
No charge telephone consultations to answer general legal questions, usually 30 to 60 minutes, with an attorney who specializes in the area of the caller’s question.
Attorneys cover all 50 United States.
All contact is confidential.
If legal services beyond the initial consultation are necessary, the employee may choose to retain the consulting attorney at a 25 % discount off their normal fee. Or the employee may select from any attorney in the network and receive the fee discount.
One-on-one counseling support is always available from a local EAP counselor for related stresses and concerns – just call 1-888-275-1205 (option 7).
Legal consultation services are available during regular business hours in all time zones, Monday through Friday, from 9:00am to 5:00pm.
There is no limit on the number of different incidence of use during the year. The program is not designed to cover multiple consultations on the same issue.
