Negotiate from a position of power

Large organizations sometimes hide behind layers of bureaucracy and rely on corporate policies designed to demoralize customers until they give up. One of the most powerful things you can do is to speak with a provider lawyer about your consumer law matter. An experienced lawyer can help you understand the law and your rights, so you can negotiate from a position of power.

The negotiation dynamic can change dramatically if you contact a company armed with legal knowledge and strategy. When you join LegalShield, you can speak with a provider lawyer regarding consumer finance and an unlimited number of personal legal issues.

Don’t let big organizations push you around and stress you out. Get access to a provider law firm who can help you with these personal consumer law matters.

Gain clarity about confusing documents and infuriating policies

Many financial disputes involve electronic or written documents that dictate the rules for resolution. However, most people never read the terms and conditions of the online agreements they sign and government forms can seem like they were purposely designed to be confusing. The paperwork used by banks and car companies can appear as if they were written in an alien language.

Having a clear understanding of the legal elements and policies included in documents relevant to the financial issue you’re facing is an important first step in relieving stress and resolving the situation.

A LegalShield personal legal plan allows you to send any personal legal documents, up to 15 pages each, to your provider lawyer for review and feedback. There is no additional fee for this valuable benefit and you can submit documents right through our smartphone app.

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) 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.

How long after I join can I use the plan?

You can use your plan as soon as your membership application is reviewed and your account is set up. The review process takes 12-24 hours (or less) from the moment you purchase your plan (on regular business days). Once accepted, you can be in contact with a lawyer and begin to use the plan benefits and member perks outlined in the membership agreement right away.

How much can I save with a membership?

The average lawyer in the U.S. charges between $150-$400 per hour. If you use your membership for even just a few hours a year you could easily save over $1,000. If you have a bunch of small legal issues or one rather complicated issue, you can easily save multiple thousands of dollars over hiring a lawyer directly. Not to mention the stress you’ll save by having a lawyer on call instead of trying to handle legal issues yourself. Also, the lawyers in our network often help our members recover thousands of dollars of damages or avoid thousands of dollars in fees over what they would have experienced had they tried to resolve the legal issue themselves. Obviously, every member and usage situation is different, but when used correctly, your membership can easily save significant amounts of money. Not to mention savings from our member perks.

Who is covered under a personal plan?

Our Personal Plan is really a family plan. You, your spouse or partner and your dependents living at home are covered under one membership.
