Legal Advice

All DAS policyholders have unlimited access to legal advice. The DAS Canada 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 advice line 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 DAS Policy Number ready
The DAS legal advice helpline phone number can be found on your DAS Policy Certificate or within your Policy Wording booklet. Please have your DAS Policy Number ready when you call, which you can also find on your Policy Certificate.

If you are unable to find your policy number, please call the DAS Canada Head Office at:
1-888-582-5586.
Step 2: Set-up your general legal advice callback time
You will first speak to a DAS Customer Service Agent, who will ask a couple policy verification questions and what area of law you require advice for. At this point you will schedule the most convenient time for a callback from an advice lawyer.
Step 3: Talk to the advice lawyer
Our advice lawyers are knowledgeable and courteous, and will provide you with information and clearly defined next steps, even if your issue is not covered by your DAS policy.
