The Hyatt Legal Plan allows access to a nationwide network of participating attorneys. Plan Attorneys have met stringent selection criteria and have an average of more than 16 years of legal experience.

Plan Attorney assistance includes:

  • Consultation on the telephone
  • In-person consultation
  • Document preparation
  • Representation in many frequently necessary legal matters

Employees have the flexibility to use a non-plan attorney and be reimbursed for the covered services according to a set fee schedule. If employees use a non-plan attorney, they are responsible for paying the difference between the plan payment and the out-of-network attorney’s charge for the service.

There are limitations to this plan. Covered legal services do not include representation in litigation matters.

Legal advice is just a phone call away. When you face a situation that you think has legal implications, simply pick up the phone. A knowledgeable client service representative will be available to assist you in locating a plan attorney near your home or workplace. Plan attorneys are generally available to meet with you on weekdays, evenings, and Saturdays.

Certain areas are not covered by the plan, and there is no obligation to provide legal service benefits in any matter deemed frivolous, harassing, or in contravention of the rules of ethical conduct by governing attorneys.
