Frequently Asked Questions
Instead of paying a lawyer by the hour, you pay a small monthly fee (starting at $24.95) and get a huge variety of legal services without a huge legal bill. Services like consultation with a lawyer, document review, preparation of a Will and defense at civil trials are included as standard benefits. Just using the plan once can save you thousands of dollars.
Our Personal Plan is really a family plan. You, your spouse or partner and your dependents living at home are covered under one membership.
There is more information about this on the Personal Plan Coverage & Pricing Page.
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.
LegalShield has a network of 39 law firms, with lawyers licensed to practice in all 50 states. With hundreds of lawyers averaging 22 years of experience, they have the knowledge and experience to connect you with the right lawyer for the job. And, because our law firms are prepaid, their sole focus is on serving you, rather than billing you.
