Why work with a real estate attorney?

On average, lawyers for real estate charge between $150-$400 per hour in the U.S. That means that, depending on the complexity of your case, you could save thousands of dollars by signing up with LegalShield rather than hiring a local lawyer yourself. Our network of lawyers has helped our members recover thousands of dollars in damages.

Coverage & pricing

Instead of paying a lawyer by the hour, with LegalShield you pay a small fee (starting at $26.95/month). You’ll get access to all manner of legal services — for less!

Standard benefits include consultation, document review, drafting of debt collection letters and defense at civil trials. Using the plan just once can save you a significant amount of money.

“[Our Provider Attorney] was friendly, thorough & very knowledgeable in answering all our questions. She totally sold us on signing up as LegalShield members. Before talking with [Our Provider Attorney] we thought all that LegalShield claimed to offer was too good to be true…but it is true! We’ve already had our Wills completed and one other legal matter handled by their great legal team and at no extra cost!”
