CLEVELAND--May 28, 2014: Hyatt Legal Plans, a MetLife company, announces the launch of Legal Wheels, a legal plan for individuals that specifically addresses common vehicle-related legal matters, including traffic ticket defense, restoration of driving privileges, Lemon Law consultation and representation, repossession and document review. Plans are available for purchase now for one, two, or three year terms at

As of July 2013, there were over 219 million drivers in the U.S.(1) According to the U.S. Highway Patrol, approximately 41 million people (nearly 20%) receive speeding tickets, with resulting aggregate fines in excess of $6 billion per year.(2) On top of fines, professional legal assistance for traffic violations is required in many of these cases. The national average hourly rate for a law firm partner is $381.(3)

"Even the best drivers will likely face a traffic matter at some point in their lives, and unfortunately, professional legal assistance is out of reach for many middle-income Americans," said Bill Brooks, Hyatt Legal Plans CEO. "With just one usage per year, Legal Wheels pays for itself."

Legal Wheels is now available in most states for $49.95 for one year; $79.95 for two years (a 20% savings); and $99.95 for three years (a 33% savings). It can be purchased online at MyLegalWheels.
