Real Member Story: Rental Legal Issues

Some legal issues are expected, like estate planning or buying a home, while others occur unexpectedly. Having an attorney on hand can be invaluable when something unexpected occurs and you need an attorney. We receive feedback from our members regularly about the ways in which the legal plan has helped them with events in their life. Here is one story we received from a legal plan member about how an attorney helped him with rental issues he faced.

“I retained an attorney to represent me in a lease termination issue with a landlord and management company. She got all my issues resolved in record time and saved me thousands of dollars in rent and related expenses by preventing an acceleration clause from taking effect in my rental agreement. She negotiated an excellent lease termination for us.”
