Family Legal Protection
If you wish to speak to one of the legal teams about a legal problem, please phone 0345 604 4225. You will be asked about the issue and if necessary, you will receive a call back giving the legal advice.
If your issue cannot be dealt with through legal advice and needs to be dealt with as a potential claim under this policy, contact us on 0345 604 4225 and we will give you a reference number. At this point we will not be able to tell you whether you are covered but we will pass the information you have given us onto the claims handling teams and explain what to do next.
Please do not ask for help from a lawyer, accountant or anyone else before we have agreed that you should do so. If you do, we will not pay the costs involved even if we accept the claim.
