  • Review Documents

    You may submit any personal legal document up to 15 pages or less that’s related to the legal issue being discussed so long as you or one of your covered family members is party to the contract. Your attorney will review the document and advise you by phone about any areas of concern and the legal implications. Their goal is to arm you with the information you need to resolve the situation. Should you choose to have the attorney engage in extensive negotiation on your behalf, those services are available at 25% off their standard hourly rate.

“[My Provider Lawyer] prepared an Advanced Health Care Directive and Durable Power of Attorney over assets for me and I couldn't be more satisfied, both with [Her] and the final documentation. [She] was professional, personable, and responsive to my particular legal needs in this matter. She replied to my calls and emails promptly and never made me feel rushed. As always, my experience using a LegalShield attorney was very satisfying. I have been a member since 2000 and my legal dealings with [Her] ensured that I will continue to be a member for many years to come. Thank you.”

"I rave about LegalShield all the time. I have been a member and associate since 2005. The firm has helped me to avoid a foreclosure on my house, get my social security benefits, and get several traffic violations dismissed, as well as settle several billing disputes with various companies. They should hire me full time to travel and tell my true inspiring stories of how LegalShield got me the maximum settlement for my disability."

"Becoming a member was easy and quick because the reps were able to answer all my questions about benefits. I consider this the best money I've spent in my life. Great minds at very affordable membership rates. I've got three major issues to resolve: bankruptcy, divorce and tax issues and so I have three lawyers working with me to coordinate strategy and help with document prep. I'm incredibly impressed with each of my lawyers and really I feel like LegalShield and my lawyers from [my Provider Law Firm] have saved me from ongoing depression and I know have a bright spotlight at the end of the tunnel. I couldn't recommend LegalShield and [my Provider Law Firm] more highly. Quit stressing and lawyer-UP."

  • 25% Off! Hourly Rate

    Legal needs not included in your basic monthly fee are covered by a generous 25% discount off of your attorney’s normal hourly rates. In case such as Personal Injury Lawsuits, members may work out contingency fee or flat fee agreements with their attorney’s as well. The beauty of a LegalShield plan is that no matter the situation, our members are covered and can save literally thousands of dollars over standard attorney client relationships.

  • MEMBERPerks and Discounts that Can Pay for the Plan by Themselves -View Member Discounts

    As a LegalShield member, you’ll be entitled to receive significant discounts and savings from a variety of popular brands you probably already use. It’s not uncommon for people without a current legal issue to join LegalShield just for the generous MEMBERPerks. Combine the awesome savings with some of the standard plan benefits, such as getting an attorney prepared Will, Power of Attorney and Living will, and it becomes almost ridiculous not to join.

“[My Provider Lawyer] was extremely responsive and helpful. He helped resolve a very difficult tenant / landlord issue for me. Also, I saved a significant amount on a car rental using LegalShield Perks.”

“Have used the service 38 times in five years. With MemberPerks I save more than the service costs. Unbelievable!”

Additional Information and Limitations

At this point you may be in one of two places. Either you’re ready to join LegalShield to start saving money and reducing stress or you have a few lingering questions. One of the top questions we get from prospective members is “will my exact legal situation really be covered by the standard member benefits?”

As mentioned above, everything is covered one way or the other. Certain complicated situations may require additional legal services which are provided at a generous 25% discount off the attorney’s standard hourly fee. If you’re still not sure you’ll be covered by the standard benefits or just want additional details, there are three main ways to get the information.
