(NewsUSA) – Almost everyone needs a lawyer at some point, but legal fees can be expensive, and finding a lawyer during a crisis can be stressful. However, if you want to make sure you have a well-respected lawyer when you need one, you may want to consider a monthly retainer program.Many people don’t realize that attorney retainer programs not only save money, but guarantee that a lawyer is ready to help you immediately. Not all such programs are the same.The Attorneys on Retainer (AOR) Program offered by the Attorneys For Freedom law firm is designed to provide clients with the best legal advice in sticky situations, including criminal defense, wrongful death, personal injury, civil rights, and civil litigation."AOR members have the peace of mind knowing they have a legal advocate who is just a phone call away if they find themselves in need of an attorney," according to the firm.The AOR Program is simple. Members pay a one-time set-up fee of $100 and receive their first month’s membership for free; $25 monthly payments begin the following month and are charged to the credit card used to set up a new account. Members can cancel at any time without penalty, and are actually clients of the firm, rather than simply members of a legal club.The AOR Program is available in 34 states, and residents of Arizona and Hawaii have an additional self-protection option designed for people who own firearms. This option not only gives members an established relationship with the law firm, but also makes them eligible to have 100 percent of their attorney’s fees covered if they can reasonably claim self-defense when charged with any of the following crimes: murder, manslaughter, negligent homicide, aggravated assault, felony endangerment, disorderly conduct with a weapon, or negligent discharge.The Attorneys For Freedom law firm offers Marketing Agent options for retainer programs. Agents receive a $50 marketing reimbursement payment for each membership purchased through a referral from the website.The AOR attorneys are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Upon setup new clients have the option to meet with an Attorneys For Freedom attorney to review the agreement and answer questions.For more information about the advantages and cost savings of an attorney on retainer program, visit AOR.AttorneysForFreedom.com or call 480-405-1750.
