Grow Your Practice and Connect with New Clients at No Cost
At U.S. Legal Services, connecting our members with highly qualified attorneys is our top priority. For this reason, we have established a robust Legal Network.
Why Join Our Legal Network?
We know how demanding it is to strive to grow your practice while serving your existing clientele; with this in mind, we are happy to help our Network Attorneys grow their practices by connecting them with members who need them. For nearly 50 years, employers have partnered with us to provide their employees with a top-rated legal insurance plan. In turn, we work diligently to secure qualified attorneys, like you.
We have enabled attorneys across the U.S. to scale their practice through referrals from our plan members. Many of our Network Attorneys have successfully used this model to significantly increase their local, non ”legal plan” business. Also, to allow you to remain focused on growth, we manage all marketing efforts to our plan members.
Expanding Your Practice While Simplifying Your Workflow
We have developed our attorney portal for you to quickly and easily have access to:
Managing Your Profile—Update your personal and practice information, along with services you can provide and areas you practice in.
Viewing Member/Case Listing—Review your assigned members and their cases.
Request Authorization & Submit Claims—Manage the authorization and claim process from beginning to end.
Authorization & Claims Process
As a U.S. Legal Services Network Attorney, we want you to focus on doing what you do best—assisting members with their legal needs. With this in mind, we want to ensure ease in managing clients, scheduling, and submitting claims.
Therefore, we follow an easy three-step process for authorization and claims:
1. The Request
When a plan member requests services from a Network Attorney, you will receive an email from one of our Member Care Representatives with approval for your initial member consultation.
2. The Consult
During the initial consultation, you and the plan member will determine whether to move forward with additional legal services. If you both choose to proceed, you will contact Provider Relations to confirm continued representation and obtain authorization for payment.
3. The Claim
Upon completion of the case, you will file your claim through our attorney portal. All payments are issued quickly and efficiently. For even faster processing, you can sign up for direct deposit.
