Drivers Legal Plan:
Reviews from Professional Truck Drivers
According to Drivers Legal Plan (DLP), which may
be found online at DriversLegalPlan.com,
"The basic concept of the Plan is simple; to make the
highest quality legal representation available to the driver force, and
to make it affordable. That makes [DLP] the effective
alternative to the
insurance/referral agencies, that charge drivers substantial,
commission laden premiums, yet can deliver inconsistent counsel.
"Drivers Legal Plan is an
actual national law firm dedicated to protecting the rights of truck
drivers, and therefore the interests of trucking companies."

- Charles E. "Chip" Land,
Executive Vice President,
National Marketing Director, and
- J. Bradley Klepper, Executive
Vice President and
All of the benefits of the plan as well as the cost are
detailed on their Driver Benefits page. Drivers may
choose to pay monthly or prepay for 6 months or one year.
(Based on information on the site as of February 2011, there is a
discount for pre-paying for 12 months.)
DLP differentiates itself from other commercial driver
legal plans in that they say that they are "Not an
insurance/referral agency, who might use a lawyer unfamiliar with CDL
defense" and their "attorneys dedicate their entire practice to CDL
