Affordable Legal Help for Home Based Businesses
The Perfect Size Legal Plan for Your Home Based Business or Sole Proprietorship
While even the smallest companies need legal help, many home business owners risk legal liability or miss out on profitable growth opportunities because they believe the legal services they need are too expensive. LegalShield has an affordable solution. If you own rental property or run a small business out of your home, adding our Home Business Supplement to your personal legal plan gets you the critical legal support your business needs for only $9.95 per month.

Unlimited Consultation With a Local Business Attorney
Whether you have a quick question about a vendor contract or a messy situation involving an unhappy client, our Home Business Supplement provides you with the ability to speak with your attorney on an unlimited number of business topics.
Consultation with an attorney can prevent a small issue from expanding into a business backbreaker. If you have legal questions about any aspect of your business, the legal advice you need is a quick phone call away. There is no need to stress and guess. With LegalShield, you are no longer alone.
Most attorneys charge between $150 and $400 per hour. If attorney consultations were the only benefit of the Home Business Supplement, it would still be a fantastic value. As you can see below, the plan is jam-packed with other important legal services.
Document and Contract Review
Client contracts. Vendor agreements. Loan documents. Licensing applications. There is no end to the paperwork that floats across your desk.
Have you ever had questions about a complex financial document? Do you sometimes wish you could have an attorney review a contract before you sign it? Are you dealing with a vendor dispute and you’re not sure what your rights are under the agreement you have in place?
Worry no more. The Home Business Supplement allows you to submit up to 3 documents (15 pages each) per month. Your attorney will review each document and provide valuable feedback to protect your rights and ensure you are making the right moves.
Letters, Phone Calls and Help with Debt Collection
Sometimes getting legal advice is not enough. When situations get extra sticky, you need an attorney to make a call on your behalf or write a letter on their official letterhead to resolve the problem. Good news. Your plan includes letters and phone calls.
- Your attorney can write letters or make calls up to 6 times per year
- Also, your attorney can write a follow up letter or make a follow up call on each legal issue
- Your attorney can draft up to 3 collection letters each month to recover debts owed to your business
Having an attorney spend a few hours writing letters and making calls could easily cost you $500 - $1000. Our home business supplement costs only $119.40, for an entire year. If you have a home based business, this supplement is truly a no-brainer.
By now it should be pretty obvious that spending $9.95 per month to protect your livelihood is a smart business move. The plan benefits we’ve discussed cover most common legal needs.
Even IRS audits of a personal federal tax return that includes Schedule C and Schedule E are covered. Just call your attorney and they will support you during the audit.
Should you have more complex situations arise, you’re still covered. Any legal services not included in the core benefits qualify for a 25% discount off your attorney’s standard hourly rates. No matter what arises in your business, you can get the legal help you need for a fraction of the normal cost.
