AmeriEstate Legal Plan, Inc. is a Prepaid Legal Access Plan with over 35,000 members. We are currently registered to do business in MD, CA, AZ, KY, TX, TN and VA, and our primary focus is in Estate Planning. You need not live in Columbia; however, you MUST have a presence in MARYLAND and be licensed in MARYLAND; we are accepting applicants throughout MD. As a pre-paid legal access plan, the primary goal of the plan is to provide our members with affordable access to licensed attorneys for legal advice and representation. Though the legal plan is established to provide its members with access to licensed attorneys for a broad range of matters, the focus or specialty of the legal plan is Estate Planning, Asset Protection, and business formation services. Most of our new members are interested in establishing Revocable Living Trusts and other appropriate estate planning strategies. Our approach to helping families obtain these valuable services is a non-traditional one; however, our procedures involve specialization leading to higher efficiency and reasonable costs for the client.
Our current network of provider attorneys consists of 1-5 attorneys in each state where we are registered to do business. You need not live in any specific city; we are accepting applications within your state. Our provider attorneys are independent practicing attorneys who agree to provide legal plan members with legal advice and consultation for up to 30 minutes, unless retained for more complex legal services or other representation. AmeriEstate is currently expanding its services and we are seeking to establish a new relationship with a Provider Attorney ("PA") in the state of Maryland. Our primary requirement for a Provider Attorney is one who has experience in the area of Estate Planning, ie Living Trusts, Wills and other Estate Planning documents.
In our model, a PA will be provided a steady stream of pre-educated members for consultations leading to the creation of an appropriate estate plan for which the PA will receive a fixed fee. Any matters which fall outside of the area of estate planning will also first be referred to the Provider Attorney if appropriate in light of attorney's area of practice.
If you are interested in forming such a relationship, please forward your resume and/or qualifications to: firstname.lastname@example.org. At that time, I will provide you with more details and references with our current Provider Attorneys.
