    Any of you run into one these Lawyer insurance sales guys at the truck stops?

    I ran into one the other day and was consider there services because of an accident I was in in my personal vehicle. Thought maybe they could help me with it.

    He said it was $95 down (first and last months payment) and $45 a month for the lawyer service.

    Apparently they have lawyers on call to deal with tickets/accidents you might have on the road. What's yalls thoughts on these "deals"?

    You get what you pay for... go see a real lawyer where accident took place.

    Did he bang on your door and ask if you wanted commercial company? Most lawyers are hoes, the only difference is the setting.

    Seems silly to me. Just don’t break the law and you shouldn’t have to worry.

    By any chance was this at the TA in Richmond Virginia?

    I was hoping someone would chime in on this that is paying for it.

    Keep in mind, those payments are just retainers. Meaning that you're pretty much paying them to be on call for you. The real bills come when they have to start doing work

    TVC?

    That quote sounds like the monthly dues. The problem is, when you REALLY need them, you will have to pay extra to get a lawyer to handle your problem. Yes, extra besides the monthly dues. And they will send the cheapest dumb@$$ to ever pass the bar exam to represent you. If he shows.

    Get your own lawyer. Let him go to work.Get your situation taken care of.
    You had an accident in your personal vehicle. Do you know what you did wrong? No sir, I am not trying to be a buster or kick you while you are down. But there is a method to driving where you can avoid accidents IF you know what to watch for. And like Kyle G said, you wont have to worry about this stuff anymore.

    what you weren't told, is pre existing issues aren't covered.. ...and usually the monthly fee is a kind of retainer,membership fee.....as a member you pay additional fees, bail/ticket amount, bail is refunded if lawyer wins case
    i use a service at 14.00 per month, it's strictly so i ain't gotta show up for court and i'm cross country somewhere.....main thing is i avoid tickets.....so i just pay 14.00 per mnth retainer......it been very useful since 2008
