Quality, Affordable Legal Representation
Drivers Legal Plan® recognizes unnecessary traffic convictions have a deep and detrimental effect on their companies' safety profiles and driver retention records. The concept is simple: make the highest quality legal representation available to the driver force, and make it affordable. That makes Drivers Legal Plan® the effective alternative to the insurance/referral agencies that charge drivers substantial, commission-laden premiums, yet can deliver inconsistent counsel.
