As a 14-year practicing attorney, the greatest struggle I faced was trying to assist people who have true legal needs but little or no ability to pay an attorney’s fees. At least half of the people who sought to hire me did not have the money to do so.
I was first introduced to LegalShield at a chamber of commerce event in the fall of 2015. I had never heard of LegalShield before that time and could not believe that a family could have access to an entire law firm for less than $20 a month. But I definitely wanted to learn more.
I spent the next six months researching LegalShield and the law firms that serve LegalShield Members. I could not find a single flaw and decided to become an associate in February 2016. On August 1, 2016, I closed the doors of my law practice to work LegalShield full-time. I knew that so many people needed the service but had no idea the service existed.
I was willing to tell anyone and everyone who would listen about this incredible, affordable access to legal representation. As a result, I exceeded my income as an attorney and have never looked back. I do direct sales, focusing on B2B and employee benefits. In January 2019, I hit a man on a bicycle on my way home from church at 9 o’clock at night. Even though I am an attorney, I have never practiced criminal law. And it was a very traumatic experience. Having the ability to take out my phone, press a button on an app and have an attorney walk me through the entire process—even though it was late at night—was priceless to me. That is something I will never forget. That is when putting the LegalShield app in every person’s hand became my true mission.
This business has given me so much freedom. I truly live life on my terms. I am able to be a present mother for my children, and the company has allowed our family to earn many memorable trips. There is real joy in finding a career that allows you to assist and empower so many people, while having the freedom to live the life you desire. I am Tiffany Sullivan, and I am just getting started!
