- Employees may select from a nationwide Attorney Network, or any attorney of their choice.1
- Offering unique employee benefits can help recruit and retain valuable employees and enhances the competitiveness of your benefits plan.
- Enrollment tends to grow yearly as satisfied employees discuss the benefit with co-workers.
