About the Teamsters Legal Services Plan:
In the past, Union members have been hesitant to use the services of an attorney because of a concern about legal fees. Thus, the Legal Services Trust Fund pays legal fees on the basis of a schedule established by the Board of Trustees and adopted by participating attorneys like Jorgensen & Salberg, LLP. The Trustees urge you to take full advantage of the opportunity to have an attorney on your side.
Below is a summary of the plan designed to help you understand your benefits as a Teamster. This summary does not contain every detail of the plan. If you have specific questions about your plan, please contact the Western Conference of Teamsters Legal Services Trust Fund at 1-800-222-3025.
