Frequently Asked Questions
What is a pre-paid legal plan and how does it work?
Using the plan is as simple as signing up and contacting our team. Once you’re a member, customer support will connect you with an independent lawyer in your area who specializes in the specific legal issue with which you need help.
Will the plan really cover my specific legal issue?
Legal Plans from LegalShield cover any and all legal issues. Many day to day legal issues are covered by the standard plan benefits with no additional fees. If your specific legal need is a bit more exotic and requires additional lawyer support beyond the standard benefits, you can use your lawyer to help you at 25% off their regular hourly rates. No matter the situation, you’re covered, at a substantial savings.

Who is covered under the Business Plan?
It’s important to note that all of our business plans cover your business, not you personally. Each business plan allows you to designate a certain number of authorized spokespeople to work with our lawyers on behalf of your organization. Designated spokespeople must be employees, owners, partners or officers of your company. If you need personal legal help, check out out our personal plan
