Download Our App and Get Legal Help

The LegalShield App is like having a law firm in your pocket. You can call or email your provider attorney, upload documents and so much more, right from your smartphone.

  • Attorneys return calls in 4 business hours or less
  • Covered contracts and documents reviewed in 3 business days or less
  • Click to connect in 15 minutes or less during legal emergencies
