Frequently Asked Questions

 How can I receive all these legal services for such a low price?

If lawyer’s charge hundreds of dollars an hour, how can I receive hours and hours of legal services, document preparation and trial defense, plus insane retailer discounts, for such a small fee? We get this question a lot. The answer is actually pretty simple.

We have have 4.1 million members. Most of them do not need legal help each month. As such, the fees we collect allow us to pay the law firms monthly to provide services to the members that do need it and still make a profit. Also, retailers want to partner with us to expose their services to our membership. You save. You get protected. The lawyers and LegalShield make a fair profit. The retailers get new customers. It’s a win win win win win all the way around. Few things in life are that good. LegalShield is.

 Who are the lawyers I’ll work with? Are they experienced?

While LegalShield does not employ the lawyers that provide the services to members, LegalShield has a network of dedicated independent law firms across the United States and Canada made up of seasoned lawyers with an average of 22 years experience. The law firms in our network provide legal protection to over 4.1 million LegalShield members any time they need it, even in covered emergency situations, 24/7, 365 days a year. You can view the names and background information about the provider law firms and many lawyer profiles in our Law Firm Finder.

 Will I work with the same lawyer each time I need help?

As you may know, great lawyers tend to focus on one or just a few areas of law. You may not work with the same lawyers if you have legal issues in totally different areas of law. However, you will always work with the same law firm. LegalShield takes the selection of provider law firms very seriously. You can be assured that all the lawyers in the provider law firm that covers your location are experienced in their particular area of law and have many years of experience.

 Does the plan cover pre-existing situations?

The short answer is yes. Most pre-existing situations are covered by your plan. There are a few exclusions and exceptions, such as needing to have a membership no later than the same day you receive a traffic ticket, but most pre-existing situations are covered.

As a member, you'll always be able to say 
"I'm going to run it by my lawyer"
and mean it! 

Hiring a lawyer can become costly over time, but our new collaboration with a pre-paid program, LegalShield, offers affordable access to legal services in the form of a monthly plan. Attorneys across Canada can help you with a variety of issues you may be facing.   

A monthly plan is affordable and helps you find an attorney who can provide advice, represent you, and review documents and write letters on your behalf. You also can spend more time talking to your attorney and your plan covers your family – including your spouse, partner and children. If you no longer need an attorney, you can cancel your plan at any time!
