[Our Provider Attorney] was friendly, thorough & very knowledgeable in answering all our questions. She totally sold us on signing up as LegalShield members. Before talking with [Our Provider Attorney] we thought all that LegalShield claimed to offer was too good to be true…but it is true! We’ve already had our Wills completed and one other legal matter handled by their great legal team at no extra cost!
