Administrative Legal Services

Hutchinson & Steffen provides the legal plan for union members. As a member, this valuable plan provides you with 24-hour coverage for both duty-related criminal and administrative actions.  Our legal plan has you covered off the job as well.  Members get two 30-minute consultations for non-work related legal issues, plus discounted legal services for matters of workers compensation, family law, estate planning, will, and homestead preparation.  The legal coverage is part of every membership plan and cannot be excluded. The legal plan’s cost is already included in your monthly dues price, and is a small price to pay for peace of mind protection. The benefit is available to both sworn, civilian, and retired members.
