Personal Plan Supplements

If you have a home business, own a gun, or if you anticipate needing additional trial coverage - you may want to consider these optional Personal Plan Supplements. Add these supplements to your plan at checkout or scroll to learn more below.

Home Business Supplement

Hiring a law firm for your home-based business can be expensive. And with DIY legal websites, you may not know the best actions to take or have access to consultation with a lawyer when you need it. LegalShield’s Home Business Supplement provides access to a provider law firm for a wide variety of business legal matters. You’ll receive a year’s worth of unlimited consultation and a multitude of actual services for around the cost of a single contract review elsewhere.

You might be self-employed, but you’re not on your own. Get legal assistance that’s tailored to your unique needs, enabling you to focus on what you do best – running your home business.

 If you have a more complex business with employees, check out our small business plans.

I can't believe the value. I purchased the service to take care of Wills and Powers of Attorney, but I had another issue come up I needed advice on. I left a message and they called me back within 2 hours with the information.
