Attorney Referral Program

Need an attorney?

NEA has for many years provided members full legal protection in employment-related matters. But in today’s complex world, simply having legal help for employment-related matters isn’t enough. At one time or another, each of us needs legal counsel on personal matters that are important to us and our families.

What the program provides:

During any calendar year, eligible members are entitled to two, free* 30-minute consultation sessions with any of these Association-approved attorneys. During the two free* sessions, you may discuss almost any legal matter except income tax preparation.

In addition to these free consultations, members may have specific legal work performed in five “core” areas at a 30 percent reduction of that attorney’s normal fee.

Participating attorneys must agree to discuss fees before they render services. And they must be willing to accept payment of their fees by some installment payment plan. In some cases, that may even include credit cards.

The “core” areas:

NEA has identified five “core” areas of personal legal service for coverage under the NEA Attorney Referral Program.

  • Wills and Estates
  • Real Estate
  • Domestic Relations
  • Consumer Protection
  • Traffic Violations

The Plan is for members as defined below:

Except as otherwise provided in the Program Guidelines, “member” means an active, life active, substitute, reserve, student, staff or retired member of NEA, and at the request of the NEA member, his or her (1) spouse, and (2) children who are classed as dependents for federal income tax purposes. The plan does not cover parents of members.

* The free consultation benefit allows you to discuss your problem with an attorney to determine whether you need additional legal services. Do not expect the attorney to draft or review documents during a consultation. If you ask the attorney to provide additional services, such as preparing a will, you will be billed at discounted program rates. Some restrictions apply.
