Frequently Asked Questions

What is a pre-paid legal plan and how does it work?

Instead of paying a lawyer by the hour, you pay a small fee (starting at $24.95/month for personal and $49/month for small business) and have access to an independent lawyer that will provide a huge variety of legal services without a huge legal bill. Services like consultation with a lawyer, document review, drafting of debt collection letters and defense at civil trials are included as standard benefits. Using the plan just once can save you literally thousands of dollars.

Using the plan is as simple as signing up and contacting our team. Once you’re a member, customer support will connect you with an independent lawyer in your area who specializes in the specific legal issue with which you need help. Also, you can download our super-simple app to quickly access your legal benefits and member perks anytime.

Will the plan really cover my specific legal issue?

Business Plans from LegalShield cover any and all legal issues. Many day to day legal issues are covered by the standard plan benefits with no additional fees. If your specific legal need is a bit more exotic and requires additional lawyer support beyond the standard benefits, you can use your lawyer to help you at 25% off their regular hourly rates. No matter the situation, you’re covered, at a substantial savings.

If you still have questions about coverage, please review either the Small Business coverage details page. If you prefer to speak to someone live, simply contact our customer support team to discuss your specific situation.

Who are the lawyers I'll work with?

While LegalShield does not employ the lawyers that provide the services to members, LegalShield has a network of dedicated independent law firms across the United States and Canada made up of seasoned lawyers with an average of 22 years experience. The law firms in our network provide legal protection to over 4.1 million LegalShield members any time they need it, even in covered emergency situations, 24/7, 365 days a year. You can view the names and background information about the provider law firms and many lawyer profiles in our Law Firm Finder.

Who is covered under the Business Plans?

It’s important to note that all of our business plans cover your business, not you personally. Each business plan allows you to designate a certain number of authorized spokespeople to work with our lawyers on behalf of your organization. Designated spokespeople must be employees, owners, partners or officers of your company. If you need personal legal help, check out our personal plan.

There is more information about this specific question near the top of the Coverage & Pricing Page.

Do you have lawyers in my area?

The dedicated independent law firms in our provider network cover the United States and Canada 24/7, 365. There are 900+ lawyers in the network.
