"Committed to Providing YOU Legal Excellence"

The CSLEA Legal Defense Fund provides members access to prepaid legal representation in matters arising from the normal course of employment. Experienced LDF Panel Attorneys from reputable law firms throughout the State provide defense in civil and criminal prosecutions of members. Only those attorneys who have a demonstrated track record in successfully defending public safety members become part of the CSLEA LDF Panel. These firms have agreed to make their attorneys available to CSLEA members at any time of day or night and are therefore, willing to respond to incidents such as officer-involved shootings which often occur in the middle of the night. LDF may also provide representation if a matter is of such importance as to benefit the CSLEA membership as a whole. LDF does not cover actions for conduct outside the normal course and scope of employment, retirement or workers' compensation. If coverage is denied by the Legal Administrator, a member may appeal to the LDF Board of Trustees who is comprised of a Chairperson, 2 regular and 1 alternate Trustee appointed by the CSLEA President. LDF can be reached 24 hours a day, 7 days a week by calling 1-800-533-5448."
