Clear up Any Confusion Around Estate Planning

Estate planning goes beyond having a basic Will. For example, a Living Will allows you to address life-sustaining treatment decisions and allows you to make your wishes known regarding end-of-life decisions when you are unable to do so. 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 a provider lawyer to determine what your Estate Plan should include and ask questions to clear up any confusion.

Get an 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 a provider lawyer create the documents for you. It’s far less stressful.

  • All LegalShield personal legal plans include a lawyer-drafted Will, Living Will and Power of Attorney prepared by your provider lawyer.
  • If you have existing documents, your lawyer can review them and provide feedback.
  • Need additional estate planning? You can work with your provider lawyer for 25% off their standard hourly rates.

Anyway you slice it, working with your provider lawyer when you have a LegalShield Personal Legal Plan, can save you both time and money to create an Estate Plan. Also, you’ll rest easy knowing that your documents were created by your provider lawyer.

A Worry Free Way to Keep Your Documents up to Date

One of the few things you can count on is that life is always changing. With a LegalShield membership, your estate plan can keep pace.

  • As long as you’re a member, you are entitled to have your provider lawyer review your basic estate planning documents including your Will, Living Will, and Power of Attorney and update them once each membership year.
  • If you have questions about your Estate Plan (or any other personal legal issue) you can call your provider lawyer for advice and consultation on an unlimited number of personal legal matters.
  • Should you need your provider lawyer to write letters or make phone calls on your behalf related to any personal legal issue, it’s included in your membership .

A LegalShield membership allows you to speak with a provider lawyer to determine what your Estate Plan should include and ask questions to clear up any confusion.

Worker’s comp

While most employers carry workers’ compensation insurance, excessive claims can raise premiums and cause other financial harm to your business.

If an employee files a claim for workers compensation and the claim is denied, the employee may hire a lawyer to pursue legal action.

Whether you’re dealing with an active claim or just need general legal advice, LegalShield offers an affordable alternative to hiring an employer rights lawyer directly.

ADA

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) prohibits employers from discriminating against people with disabilities and creates obligations for employers to make reasonable accommodations for qualified job applicants. Employers have certain legal rights under the act as well.

If you have any questions about the ADA or related federal law compliance issues, join LegalShield today and you can be on the phone with a lawyer in as little as 4 hours after initial contact.

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 lawyer in the U.S. charges between $150-$400 per hour. Whether you’re using just a few hours of services a year or looking to tackle multiple legal issues, a LegalShield membership can save you thousands of dollars on legal fees as well as considerable stress over trying to handle matters yourself. Also, the lawyers in our network often help our members recover thousands of dollars of damages 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, and offers member perks with participating partners.

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 in 4 hours or less, after initial contact, 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 a lawyer by the hour, you pay a small monthly fee (starting at $29.95) and get a 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.
