Legal Advice

All DAS policyholders have unlimited access to general legal advice.  The DAS Legal Advice Helpline is available from:

  • 8 a.m. to midnight (local time), seven days per week.
  • In emergency situations, your call will always be answered- 24/7.

The DAS Legal Advice Helpline is here to serve you. If you have a legal question or believe you may become involved in a legal dispute, call the legal advice line right away.  You can call for information about any legal issue, whether or not it is covered by your policy – such as questions regarding family, wills or real-estate law.

Access to unlimited legal advice is easy!

Step 1: Have your Legal Advice Helpline telephone number and Policy Number ready
Your Legal Advice Helpline telephone number and Policy Number can be found on your:
- DAS Policy Certificate, or;
- Within your DAS Policy Wording booklet.
If you cannot find either, then please call our Head Office at 1-888-582-5586 and press 1 to connect to the Legal Advice Helpline.
Step 2: Call and talk to an advice lawyer right away
Our advice lawyers are knowledgeable and courteous.  They will listen to and ask questions to better understand your issue and then provide you with general legal advice and potential next steps, even if your issue is not covered by your DAS policy. 
However, providing general legal advice means they will not review contracts/documents or determine if your legal issue is claimable under your policy.   If your issue appears to be covered by your policy, the advice lawyer will then pass along your information to our Claims Department and will follow these steps.
