What Our Members Are Saying

  • I used my business legal plan. [My provider law firm] consistently provides a professional and outstanding customer centered experience from the first intake call, the follow up on every pending matter and throughout the entire engagement with any attorney. All my questions get answers in a timely and well laid out way, so that at the end I know how I need to proceed with the business matter. Thank you for consistently engaging this member in a manner of pride in both your law firm and profession. It truly matters and speaks volumes about the quality of law firms in partnership with LegalShield.

  • I recently agreed to lease commercial space for my small business and recording studio. The lease document was long. I read through it but wanted an expert to review it. Within less than an hour my provider law firm returned my call. He answered my questions and gave me the green light on the lease. I was extremely satisfied on all counts.

  • As a small business owner with both a LegalShield business plan and a personal plan, I strongly recommend LegalShield to all new business owners. I am a paralegal, and yet find the benefits to our business immeasurable. 1) I don't have to spend hours doing legal research, 2) I know that instead of paying a large retainer to an attorney who is most likely not an expert in ALL areas of law, that instead I can pay a reasonable monthly fee and when I call I will be able to talk withan attorney who is an expert in the category of law I need input, 3) I have appreciated review of all employee documents and policies we have for our business, 4) On the rare occasion that we have had a collection issue, a letter from our attorney law firm has been all it takes to motivate a payment. We are very pleased with our plans and the benefits.
