One of the most appreciated services provided by the Arizona Fraternal Order of Police Arizona Labor Council is our Legal Defense Plan that is designed to cover the legal exposures faced by members of the Arizona FOP.
The plan is member governed, protects the rights of officers and provides free attorney representation in employment related criminal, civil and administrative matters. Read the legal plan below and we are confident you will find it to be the best law enforcement legal defense plan available.
In addition to providing attorney representation in work related criminal, civil and administrative matters, the legal plan also allows unlimited phone or office consultations with an attorney on any personal legal matter. The legal plan also provides a free will for members and spouses as well a discounted rate for estate planning matters. The legal plan also provides benefits in workers compensation matters, IRS representation, and a discounted rate for other legal services.
Best of all, you can call the law firm directly, thus you do not need permission from anyone to access your benefits under the legal plan.
Please note that if you are a member of the Arizona Federal Lodge, you fall under the coverage of a separate federal legal plan that is specifically tailored to the needs of Federal Law Enforcement Agents and Officers: the FOP/ALC Federal Law Enforcement Officer’s Legal Plan (http://federal2.azfop.com/legal-plan/). Please note that if you are a federal officer and not a member of the federal lodge you run the risk of receiving no benefits or severely diminished benefits under the federal legal plan.
