Everything was seamless and very positive. I have been a member for a few years but never had the need to use so was unsure of the process. I called the number on the LegalShield website and they gave me the number for the [provider law firm], I called gave my information and the [provider law firm] called me back in a short amount of time with great advice.

We had a client over 90 days in arrears. It took about 15 minutes to explain the situation and a demand letter was written immediately! Fast and easy. Thanks

I have had an extraordinary experience with [my Provider], Lawyer! I had a very serious matter that he was able to do exactly as I had hoped. I asked him to be an advocate on my behalf rather than use a typical lawyer demeanour. He was able to do just that and was successful in working out an agreement that was amenable to both parties. I had great advice and a letter that was accepted that he drafted and now I am able to go on with "business as usual". I needed time and [He] was able to work that out for me with compassion and sincerity on my behalf to someone that I owned a great deal of money. He has redeemed me in the eyes of someone who had been wonderful to me and now our friendship can get past our differences. It takes a special lawyer to negotiate a situation by being sincere to gain the trust of the other party who did not have any trust left and I owe so much to [my Provider Lawyer] and LegalShield. This is truly a service that everyone needs for their personal lives and to protect their business. I can't thank [Him] or LegalShield enough for being there when I needed them the most.
