LEO: Prepaid Legal Plans LE Op. 875
Prepaid Legal Plans.
January 30, 1987
An attorney proposes to license a prepaid legal service plan with the
State Corporation Commission, administer the plan and provide all legal
services. It is not improper for an attorney to market a prepaid legal
plan through nonattorneys, who will receive commissions based on income
derived from the subscribers. [ DR:2-101, DR:2-103; § 38.2-4409 et
