I find the firm to be responsive very promptly and extremely helpful, even if I have to make multiple phone calls regarding the same issue because I have thought of more questions to ask!

How It Works

For a small monthly fee, your Personal Plan includes four key areas of legal protection:

Provide Advice
  • You can speak with your lawyer on an unlimited number of personal legal issues to get legal advice.
  • Lawyers return calls within 4 hours or less after initial contact and are available 24/7 for emergency situations.          
Represent You
  • Your lawyer can make phone calls and write letters on your behalf to help solve legal problems.
  • Also, your lawyer can defend you at trial and represent you in a variety of other legal proceedings.
Review Documents
  • Your lawyer can review and provide feedback on an unlimited number of personal legal documents.    
  • Your membership covers any personal legal documents up to 15 pages in length with no extra or hidden fees.
Draft Documents
  • You get a lawyer drafted Standard Will, Living Will and Power of Attorney plus yearly updates.    
  • Your lawyer can draft other kinds of documents too, such as residential loan paperwork.                   
Recently I had a problem with a Real Estate Professional. My LegalShield lawyer stayed on top of the situation and even called on their own to check and see how I was doing! Now that is professional on another level. It showed me that my lawyer cared not only about my case, but about me as a human being (which lawyers are rarely known for). Thank you LegalShield for a job being well done!

LegalShield saved me over $300 by writing a letter to my [my internet provider] getting me out of a 24-month contract due to several issues. [My provider law firm] is also helping me out with my Will! Thank you

[My provider lawyer] was great to work with. He listened and very quickly understood exactly what happened to us at the [local car] dealership. The letter he composed was enough to leverage the dealership to step up and take responsibility for their shortcomings during the service of the vehicle. Thank to [my provider lawyer] the dealership agreed to provide the 12 month/12,000 mile warranty. Thank you

Traffic Violations and Accidents

It’s nearly impossible to drive a vehicle for any number of years and not have some legal issue pop up. Next time you have a run in with the police, another driver or a “friendly” meter maid, call your LegalShield lawyer and get a better outcome.

  • Speeding Tickets: Contact your lawyer and they will represent you. They may be able to avoid points, save your license and save you time and money.

  • Crashes: Help dealing with insurance companies, other drivers and the police is covered by your plan. Rest easy as we take care of difficult accidents.

  • Lost License: You have up to 2.5 hours of lawyer time to help you get a driver’s license reinstated.

  • Protect Your Rights: Your lawyer may be able to reduce impact on your driving record and help you deal with repair shops, medical bills and more.

I was involved in a car accident a few weeks ago and I thought it would be a good idea to run a few things by a lawyer. [My provider lawyer] called me back within the time frame promised and was very helpful. I expected to be rushed through the discussion and pressured for further counsel at additional cost; however, that was not the case at all! We walked through a response strategy to the insurance company and he gave me some things to watch out for in my discussions with them. As a result of the excellent advice received, I was able to prove to the insurance company that I was not at fault and now thousands of dollars of work on my truck is getting fixed free of charge to me! Thank you LegalShield!

Had no idea what a Power of Attorney letter was until my son's grandmother asked me to get one made while he's out of state with her. I just want to thank LegalShield for providing me with that document for free because I asked the lawyer how much would this have been outside of LegalShield, she said $800 for consultation $400 for sending information to her and $1,400 for the document being created I'm like woooooooooow I just saved $2,600. That’s why I love LegalShield.

We called about a tenant who violated the lease agreement while renting one of our rental properties. The lawyer informed us of our rights and options for this matter and instructed us on the best way to handle this situation going forward. We were completely lost but thanks to the Provider Law Firm, we can now proceed with confidence. Thank you LegalShield for providing a service that would have cost us several thousands of dollars to get this advice and assistance. The money saved has paid for our membership and our children's membership for a lifetime. We will never be without our LegalShield membership.

Divorce with children is never easy, especially for the children. Having a provider firm that is caring and empathetic towards my personal situation has taken a bit of the burden and stress off me. That has freed me up to be the mom I want to be for my children, without the worry of the divorce process. I couldn't be more grateful for the help and support I've received from them! Kudos to such an amazing team of professionals who haven't forgotten the power of human kindness!.
