Why do I need a legal plan?

Quality legal assistance can be pricey. And it can be hard to know where to turn to find an attorney you trust. But for a low monthly fee, you can have a team of top attorneys ready to help you take care of life’s planned and unplanned legal events.

With MetLaw, a group legal plan available through Hyatt Legal Plans, you get access to experts who can assist you with a broad range of personal legal needs you might face throughout your life. This could be when you’re buying or selling a home, starting a family, dealing with identity theft, or caring for aging parents.

You may be thinking—why would top attorneys need or want to join a legal plan network. But even experienced attorneys need to grow their practice. By providing exceptional service to you and other plan members, they can gain more clients through your referrals. That’s how we’ve established a large network of highly experienced attorneys, averaging 25 years of experience. 

How it works
Our service is tailored to your needs. With network attorneys available in person, by phone, or by email and online tools to do-it-yourself or plan your next move—we make it easy to get legal help. And for certain legal matters, your attorney can represent you in court without you having to make an appearance.

Best of all, you have unlimited access to our attorneys for all legal matters covered under the plan. For a low monthly premium conveniently paid through payroll deduction, an expert is on your side as long as you need them. 

Whatever you need to protect your family, MetLaw is here to make life a little easier.
