Our mission is to secure justice in an uncertain world where legal threats are likely, skills are scarce and only a minority can afford the law. Determined to leave South Africa a better place, we provide quality legal products (to cover your future legal heartache, this is insurance after all) at an affordable monthly premium with zero excess fees. NOTE: if you already have a legal headache, it is too late to take out a policy for that specific legal matter. We also endeavour to provide legal education, so that everyone - in time - may become their own hero.
*Save-the-Day Note: there is no premium increase for the next 24 months as at 1 July 2018
Your hero understands that legal emergencies are not confined to office hours. Legal Hero Members may call us on 010 001 1001 night or day and select option 2. It is important that you provide us with the following information: Contact Number (in case your airtime runs out), Membership Number or ID number (so we may locate you on our system), Relevant SAPS Station, Time of Arrest, Charges, Previous Convictions and Next of Kin’s Details (spouse/ relative who we can keep up to date).
Upon becoming a valued Legal Hero Policyholder, you may register a new legal case by calling 010 001 1001 and asking to speak to a Lawyer to open your new case.
Your Lawyer will advise you on the next steps forward. This may include the sending of documents to support your claim. Please include your ID/ Policy Number on all documents sent to firstname.lastname@example.org or via fax to 086 551 2705.
Step 1: first your Lawyer will start with Advice;
Step 2: Out of Court Negotiations (calls to third parties by your Lawyer, sending of Letters of Demand, drafting of contracts). This saves you time as our Courts are experiencing heavy delays;
Step 3: In-Court/ Litigation Cover of up to R200 000 per year. The matter is sent to our Merit Assessors to approve or decline your claim based on the policy wording, up to date payments, date your problem arose, chances of success in Court, etc. Kindly refer to your Policy Wording for the terms and conditions.

Life is unpredictable. Rest assured that, should you pass on and leave loved ones behind, your registered Spouse and Dependents will receive Legal Advice and Out of Court Negotiation assistance for a period of 12 months without paying a premium. Why? Because we care.
What a super-thought it is to know that you will either receive legal assistance from a company that thinks highly of you OR receive a Claim-free Cashback every 5 years. You have nothing to lose and either way is a win. Please note that the Claim-free Cashback is not optional and is included in the R249 Legal Hero Black policy and benefits. The Claim-free Cashback is not free as the potential payout of the Claim-free Cashback was taken into account whilst determining the total monthly premium. The cost it has on the premium is however minimal, less than R10 during a five-year period.
Save the day note: the availability or extent of this Claim-free Cashback/ no-claims bonus depends on whether or not you claim in terms of your policy. A claim = a request for Legal Advice, Out of Court Negotiations, Contracts and Litigation/ in-Court Assistance, within your control or not, will result in your 5 year claim-free period running afresh as from the date your legal file is closed. The Claim-free Cashback totals R1500. Click here to download the Claim-free Cashback Application Form.
You may cancel within 30 days after joining and receive a full premium refund should you be unsatisfied with the contents of this document. Click here to download your Policy Wording.
For a detailed list of In Court/ Litigation exclusions, please refer to section 4 on page 8 of your Policy Wording.
