Clear up Any Confusion Around Estate Planning

Estate planning goes beyond having a basic Will. For example, a Living Will allows you to dictate the medical care you receive should you become incapacitated. The first step is to figure out exactly what elements your plan should contain. Here is a list of the most common documents.

A LegalShield membership allows you to speak with an estate planning attorney to determine what your plan should include and ask questions to clear up any confusion

Get a Great Estate Plan Without the Hassle

You can download and wrestle with online forms by yourself or you can pay a small monthly fee for a LegalShield membership and have an attorney create the documents for you. It’s far less stressful. 

  • All LegalShield plans include an attorney drafted Will, Living Will and Power of Attorney.
  • If you have existing documents, your attorney can review them and provide feedback.
  • Need more exotic planning? You can work with your attorney for 25% off their standard rates.

Anyway you slice it, working with LegalShield to create a comprehensive estate plan will save you a ton of time and money. Also, you'll rest easy knowing that your documents were created correctly

Frequently Asked Questions

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.

There is more information about this on the Personal Plan Coverage & Pricing Page.

How much can I save with a membership?

The average attorney in the US charges between $150 - $400 per hour. If you use your membership for even just a few hours a year you could easily save over $1000. If you have a bunch of small legal issues or one rather complicated issue, you can easily save multiple thousands of dollars over hiring an attorney directly. Not to mention the stress you’ll save by having an attorney on call instead of trying to handle legal issues yourself. Also, the attorneys 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.

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 an attorney in 4 hours or less and begin to use the plan benefits and member perks outlined in the membership agreement right away.

What is a legal plan, and how does it work?

Instead of paying an attorney 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 an attorney, 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.
