Common questions about your legal plan

We understand you may have more questions. Visit our FAQ page to learn more or contact us to get in touch.

Who is covered under the 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.

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 provider lawyer, after initial contact, and begin to use the plan benefits and member perks outlined in the membership agreement right away.

If the basic plan benefits don’t cover my specific situation, how much will it cost me?

When you need legal help that does not fall under the standard benefits, you can work with your provider lawyer for 25% off of their standard hourly rates. How much will that cost in the end? The answer depends on factors such as the area of law, your geographic location and your lawyer’s hourly rate. Without more information about your specific situation, it’s impossible to say exactly how much it may cost. What we can say for sure is that if you are a member and work with your provider lawyer under the discounted rates, you’re going to save hundreds if not thousands of dollars over hiring a lawyer directly. The best way to find out exactly how much something might cost is to purchase a plan, speak to a provider lawyer and then they can tell you the costs. 

Who are the lawyers I’ll work with? Are they experienced?

While LegalShield does not employ the lawyers that provide the services to members, LegalShield has a network of dedicated independent law firms across the United States and Canada made up of seasoned lawyers with an average of 22 years experience. The law firms in our network provide legal protection to over 4.1 million LegalShield members any time they need it, even in covered emergency situations, 24/7, 365 days a year. You can view the names and background information about the provider law firms and many lawyer profiles in our Law Firm Finder.
