A recent study by Hyatt Legal Plans, A Metlife company, found that people with legal issues are spending an average of nearly three hours a week at work dealing with their legal situation.  These situations average five to six weeks in duration.

Legal matters can cause stress, which not only erode your health, but also your work performance.  According to this study 37% of men and 47% of women said dealing with their legal issue negatively impacted their physical or emotional health.

Think about even the common legal matters we have had…

Real Estate transactions

Adoptions

Divorce

Traffic Violations

Debt Collections

Will Preparations

Even these common legal matters can have a negative impact on your life.

As the study continued it found that 87 percent of people who had some form of legal plan used it more than once per year.  Furthermore, nine out of ten who used the plan said they would use it in the future.   Interesting enough, forty two percent of the people who were satisfied serving as their own attorney said they would be interested in enrolling in a legal plan if given the option.

I can tell you I have a legal plan.  I do not use it once per year, but enjoy the peace of mind knowing I have it if I need it.
