The Benefits of LegalShield In Detail

I’ve talked a lot about how I have experienced the benefits of LegalShield, it is time that I shared the details. When you read about the benefits I would love to get feedback from you in the comments section below on having unlimited access to lawyers for a low monthly fee instead of paying upwards of $200 an hour to talk to a lawyer to help you resolve a legal problem.

LegalShield Mobile App

The best way to do this is by referring to the menu system of the  LegalShield mobile app. When you become a member you can download this free valuable app on either an iOS or Android mobile device. You will see a new ICON with the letter L inside as shown above. Clicking it will reveal your plan number and other important information at your fingertips!

Front Page of Benefits

When you click on the L Mobile Icon a new page appears that provides easy access to your Law Firm and a button to take a snap of your speeding ticket if you are pulled over by a cop and given a ticket.

Member Perks – Discounts from major companies

The above is a general overview of a benefit included in a LegalShield Membership. Specific information is in the member contract.

Compare the following:
A typical monthly retainer for  an attorney is $500
LegalShield monthly family plan is $24.95

In today’s environment, we have many reasons to need the services of an attorney. The main reason we do not follow through is the fear of having to pay the attorney fees of more than $200 per hour.

What if you had access to an attorney to consult with no additional fee other than your low monthly subscription, wouldn’t you like to level the playing field with those who can afford these high fees?

LegalShield provides a way to do that. It is like legal insurance. Unlike auto insurance, the more you use it your premiums get raised, with LegalShield you are encouraged to use the services often with no change to the monthly fee.

While you are registering for legal protection you may also want to consider Identity Theft Protection. A ID Theft family plan is also $24.95

I will review the Identity Theft Protection Plan in an upcoming post.

I highly recommend you review your life situation at the moment and make a list of areas you would like to get legal advice on. I created a post to help you review your options at:

How To Live A Stress Free and Happy Life In One Way You Never Thought Possible


What should I do the rest of my life?

How often do you ask yourself what should you do the rest of your life? When I was younger I wish I had asked myself this question. Instead I just meandered through life allowing my future to be decided by circumstance. Sure I made major decisions. They were not made in the context of the question what should I do the rest of my life. The goal is to help make hard decisions about the future.

What am I doing with my life right now?

This is the question that we should ask first. We all need a frame of reference that can be used to measure the gap between these two questions. You may find out that what you are doing right now is exactly what you had planned. If so then that is awesome. What if it is not? Or what if you decide you need to move on from were you are now?

Get a pen and paper, your computer or mobile device and start writing. Write in great detail exactly what you are currently doing to spend your time each day. Each week. Each month. And even each year!

Read this carefully. Then ask yourself, is this what you want to do for the rest of your life?

Now is the time to ask the question, what should I do the rest of my life?

A different way to look at this question

Instead of thinking what do you want to do for the rest of your life consider this instead. What would you like to achieve in the future? In what way would you like to impact not only your life but also the lives of your loved ones, friends and associates?

Is what you are doing or would like to do going to make your life better?

Is it going to make the lives of others better?

Rather than living for the moment have you thought about leaving a legacy when you pass on? I do not mean to be morbid. I only bring this up because I suggest you think about ways you can leave your world a better place compared to where you are now.

If money was not a factor what would you enjoy doing every day?

Here’s the problem. Most of us have jobs for the sole purpose of financing our daily lives. We need money to pay the bills. Save for emergencies. Maybe even to pay to do something for fun!

The term to live within our means has been used as good advice. Think about this. Is that really the case?

If your means happens to be paltry, will you be able to afford all the things you would like to do? What do most people do in this situation?

They borrow money through credit cards and loans to finance activities today that must be paid with future earnings. Our consumer based society helps us create a noose around our freedom.  We like to think we are free. But our freedom is limited by our ability do pay for what we would really like to do.

The catch for high income earners

I said above that in order to be truly free we need to have the means to pay for the things we want. Do you think that high income earners like doctors or lawyers have it easy? Think again!

Individuals in high paying jobs only get paid when they work. No work, no pay. And boy do they put in the hours, 50 to 60 hours a week. They are trapped by their careers. All the luxuries in life they can buy will not give them the time they need to enjoy what they own.

Worse yet. They can’t take off in a trip whenever they want to. Their families can only enjoy being with them in small increments if at all.

The harsh reality of life

Visualize a Bell Curve distribution of the population. Approximately 10% falls under the left edge of the curve. Another 10% falls on the right edge. The remaining 80% lie in the middle.

Most of us fall in the middle. We have jobs and are often stuck. We are dependent on our livelihood upon the companies we work for. And have you tried getting a raise or a promotion? These are hard to come by. And when you do succeed, does your pay jump up by a lot? The irony is you are expected to work much harder and achieve greater results in gratitude for the modest increase in pay you will be getting.

Doesn’t seem fair does it? Here’s a cold hard fact. Nobody promised you that life would be fair. If you live in the US, the Constitution only guarantees us the freedom to pursue happiness. Not happiness itself.

What about the 10% on the left? Sadly they happen to be in a group that for various reasons got left behind. The poor and helpless fall into this 10%. In some areas this number may even be higher.

It is the 10% on the right edge who do  not have jobs like the rest of us. Let’s look at this 10% in more detail.

Building an ASSET vs Working in a JOB

An Asset may take a while to create. Such as writing a book, acting in a movie, or investing in real estate or the financial markets. When you create or own an asset it keeps paying you whether you work at it or not.It may take some time to build that asset to a level where it can pay you. Often while you are building your asset you do not get paid until it is complete.

The wealthy fall into the asset owning category.

In a job, we trade hours for money. With an asset, you trade money for hours. Owning a money generating asset gives you free time all the time!

How do we build an asset and fire your boss?

The best way to do that today is by using the Internet through Affiliate Marketing.

You would think that major companies like Amazon, Walmart and Nike do not need our help to make sales. Sales and profits are KING. And they will do whatever it takes to grow these numbers.

That is why they allow anyone to sign up with them to market their products independently. The incentive they give is a percentage of the sale price. The customer pays the same price no matter if they purchased directly from the company’s website. Or through the website of an Affiliate Marketeer. Isn’t that cool?

Affiliate marketers are able to help customers find solutions to various problems through helpful reviews and tips using their own websites that are structured to showcase the products discussed.

By selecting a niche, it is possible for an affiliate marketeer to provide engaging articles within their niche. Hence it is helpful if you selected a niche that you were an expert in as well as passionate about.

For example, you could be passionate about fitness. In this niche you could market fitness equipment, exercise programs, healthy eating and many more. However, it works best by narrowing the niche to one of these areas and projecting yourself as the expert.

There are many elements in building a successful online  business. I’ll mention just one as an example. You will need to get enough traffic to view your website in order to make sales.

How would you like to see how it is done for free? All you’ll need to do is to click the link below and enter your email address. You will be transported to an amazing world where you can get trained to make affiliate marketing a money making tool! Welcome to my world of passive income!

How Do I Start My Own Online Business?

I am glad you asked this question. A while back I also asked How Do I Start My Own Online Business! There are other leading questions that must be asked ahead of this question. Can you guess what they are? I’ll bring them up below. Feel free to comment on these questions or even bring up others in the comment section of this page.

What will be your product or service?

You could be selling products you make personally. For example, custom printed T Shirts. Etched drinking glasses.

If this is not the case you may want to enter into the field of Affiliate Marketing. This is a great time to do that as almost all the major companies like Amazon, Walmart, Nike etc. offer this option.

Clearly you wouldn’t want to market everything these companies carry. You would not be adding any value to potential customers to purchase through your affiliate site.

I suggest you select a category that you are passionate as well as being very knowledgeable about. You could leverage this fact to provide value to your potential customers. We shall dig deeper on this topic later.

How do you plan on creating your website?

Let’s face it. You will need a website to create an online presence. Do you know enough about this subject to construct one for yourself?

You can find many sources that provide web building systems that make it very easy to do this. Let me caution you about going it alone. Constructing a beautiful website is only the start. This part is actually the easiest. Key components of a basic website are words and pictures. When you use pictures it is critical that you do not use copyrighted material. I decided to use pictures that I took myself or royalty free. Since the focus of my website is an online business I will pepper it with subject matter that are connected with business.

Do you have any idea what drives traffic?

Having a great website alone will be of no use if very few people view it. Sure, you can find tips online to boost your chances. Or you could purchase ads. When you’re starting out, funding is often a problem. Spending money on ads will be a challenge to get a decent return on your investment.

It would be far more productive if you used techniques in the web creation  process that will organically attract viewers to your website. This process is an art as well as a science. Experts have spent years trying to perfect this skill, and conducted countless tests before they developed the “magic” formula. Ads can come later to scale up your business once you start generating a decent income. You will have the funds then.

Have you thought what your niche will be?

Even when you decide on a category such as travel, fashion, or health products to name a few, these fields in themselves are very large. A common myth is you need to satisfy the needs of as many types of customers as possible to make money.

Think about this for a moment. One manner of providing value is to write articles and blog posts in areas such as reviews, the benefits, feature trade offs, competitors and why the products you are promoting are the better choice. There are many more ways how you can help customers to make an informed decision.

Would have the time to do all of this for hundreds of products? How many items do you think you could cover to begin with? My suggestion is to start of with no more than 20. Even this could be too much depending on the type of product you choose.

Does this make sense to you?

Once you select a niche, what next?

You create titles for your articles and start writing. There is a right way and a  wrong way to do this. You  do not need to be a major in English to write good copy.

If you were talking to a friend about a product you were nuts about, how would you tell them? Think writing in a conversational style. Very similar to the approach I am doing now.

While you are going through this process you need to understand how to use keywords (phrases) to get your blogs and articles ranked on the first page of the major search engines like Google, Bing and Yahoo.

Let me ask you this. When you are trying to find something in Google what do you write in the question line? Do you ever get amazed about the number of web pages that appear that addresses the question you asked? If you study the results closely, not all the web pages presented to you were ads based. You will find that many, and in some cases even the highest ranked web page were not a result of ads.

How do you think that happened? The owners of those websites made effective use of keywords.

I have a secret for you. There is no need to use guesswork to come up with effective keywords. Online tools are available to stack the deck in your favor. You will have to work for it. The first set of keywords you come up with may not rank high at all. You will have to be creative and use trial and error techniques.

Would you like to know an easier way forward?

The questions and ideas I have brought up above only scratch the surface. Wouldn’t you like some help in creating your business website and positioning it for ever growing traffic?

How about being able to learn from experts who have spent more than a decade perfecting the process to build a thriving online business?

You can. And I want to invite you to check what I am talking about for FREE. You don’t even need to provide your credit card to gain access.

This company has over 1,400,000 members worldwide, who are doing exactly what I stated above. I am one of them. Many of my  website pages are ranked on the first pages of Google, Bing and Yahoo search engines when customers are looking for what I have to offer.

Since you landed on this web page you have access to all of my website where you can find out what my niche happens to be. I only started building my website about three months ago.

As good as it is there is still much room for improvement. Give me a few more months and it will look even better and have more helpful articles in it.

The Truth About MLM Companies

Want to know the truth about MLM Companies? It ain’t pretty. That is why you need a Paradigm Shift if you want to succeed in this business. Before I reveal what I mean, let me give you a primer on the principles of Multi Level Marketing (MLM). Network Marketing is another term for the same business model. I shall be using the abbreviation MLM from here on. If you are well versed in MLM skip the next section.

Primer on MLM

Companies have a wealth of options to market and sell their products today. The Internet has been growing in popularity at  frenetic pace, and is gradually supplementing and even overtaking brick and mortar stores. Before the Internet was available, some companies added the MLM model to their marketing methods. Amway was the grandaddy of this model and has become one of the largest MLM companies in the world. They trail blazed through uncharted territories that created the model for the myriad of companies that followed. They proved that MLM is a legitimate form of selling products and services.

With MLM, instead of spending a huge amount of money on advertising, companies directed these funds towards recruiting Independent Representatives to promote and sell their products. Other terms for Independent Representatives used are Distributors and Associates.

The cost for these companies to create an independent salesforce consisting of thousands of individuals would be cost prohibitive. Incentives,  were derived for the original group of salespersons to recruit Independent Representatives themselves. The idea was to foster geometric growth by sharing the cost and energy required with existing Independent Representatives.

The company would give them a percentage of the sales made by their recruited Independent Representatives. This percentage would be scaled downwards many levels deep. Hence those who recruited the most hardworking Independent Representatives stood the chance of earning the most. In theory, anybody no matter at what level they are in the organization could be as or even more more successful than those above them if they built a large enough hardworking network.

The company provided an array of tools to promote sales as well as to recruit new Independent Representatives. A common practice was to hold meetings ranging from small business briefings to major conventions to motivate their sales force and also help to recruit more Independent Representatives. Everyone was and is encouraged to bring as many guests to these events to encourage sales and recruitment.

Sounds good so far. Right? Sales of companies that have adopted MLM have been generally very successful. Those that have failed did so because of serious missteps. In general though everything seems hunky dory with MLM companies.

Not so fast. I want to discuss the undertones of this practice.

What The Company Doesn’t Want You to Know

The recruiting literature promises the opportunity to create a high paying MLM business to everyone. If you work hard and never give up, you will be successful. The Independent Representative is asked to tell everyone they know about the company products and business opportunity. They are taught this is a numbers game. Some will join. Some wont. So go on to the next. The idea was to do simple tasks like inviting people to look at a video or to attend a meeting often. The idea was to expose their prospects to others who were more experienced than them to essentially do the close.

The vast majority of recruits are looking for a way to make money fast. It takes time and patience doing the right things to build a successful MLM organization. Hence many get discouraged and give up. It takes a person with vision, dedication and discipline to do the simple things day in and day out to achieve success. Then when they recruit a team, they have to work with them to train them, motivate them to do the same. Until they are able to build an organization that can sustain itself several layers deep, there is risk that their network will fall apart together with their dreams.

Why is this so? Most people are afraid of public speaking. MLM demands talking to people. At the very least, you have to ask them to watch a video. go to an event. And get  commitment that they will do that. Therefore, the success comes in the follow up. Lots of it. It takes at least 9 invitations to get a friend or family member to even look at the materials you give them. Today this process is automated using Customer Relationship Management (CRM) software.

There are several unfortunate results that occur with virtually every MLM company. The first being the turnover is very high. Hence recruiting is always a huge priority. The second is that the ratio of the big money earners to those who earn a pittance very low. Companies are requested by law to publish the average earning of Independent Representatives. They hide this detail in small print because it is disgracefully low. Less than $1000 a year in most cases.

How Do Some MLM Leaders Make a Fortune?

We have to give them credit. They earn everything they get. When they started their MLM business, they worked hard and smart. They were aware right off the bat that they had to do the simple things to promote their business opportunity as often as possible. They didn’t let their feelings or being rejected get to them.

The idea was not to reinvent the wheel. But to do the things that have worked in the past over and over again. The KISS, Keep It Simple Stupid applied here very aptly.

Not everyone can do this. In order to succeed you have to become a leader. If you continue to remain a follower, you will not succeed.

I call them LEADERS for a reason. They had to show leadership, integrity and resolve that they were success oriented. And that they would not stop helping any member of their team who was willing to put in the work and follow guidance.

The Ugly Truth

What matters the most to MLM companies, or to any company for that matter, is the bottom line. What are their annual sales? What is the cost of these sales? And what is the net profit?

They will do whatever it takes to make these numbers look good. And high turnover is just a cost of doing business.

Does this mean that MLM cannot work? For most people yes.

Unless you have a PARADIGM SHIFT in your thinking and approach that I will discuss in my next post entitled: How To Make Money In Network Marketing – Online!



How to Make Money with Network Marketing – Online!

The Paradigm Shift I was referring to in The Truth About MLM Companies is revealed in this page. Consider this an introduction. I will go into more details in future posts.

The following principles and methods apply to any Network Marketing business. I am using LegalShield as an example because I am an Associate in this company.

My website so far has focused mainly on LegalShield. Membership can provide you access to lawyers 24/7 at a very affordable monthly subscription. You have an easy path to resolve your legal issues; to get legal advice before making decisions and signing contracts; as well as giving you peace of mind knowing you have these options.

How to Earn Money in Network Marketing – The Online Way!

Since I am using the principles of affiliate marketing to develop a Network Marketing online business, I thought of sharing what I am doing to help others. If you are struggling to build your business the traditional way meaning talking to lots of people and attending a bunch of meetings, taking guests with you, then this may be a good alternative.

Since I am an Associate of LegalShield, I shall be using this company as an example. The principles apply to any MLM business that is promoting any product or service. If some of what I say is well known to you I beg your patience.

No matter what company you represent, when a customer buys your product or service, you earn a commission. How cool is that? Much like affiliate marketing, right? In any MLM company you must first enroll as an Independent Representative to qualify for commissions. In LegalShield the term Associate is used instead. In other words, just being a customer does not qualify you to earn money promoting the business. In some ways it is like a franchise but the cost of entry is affordable to the average person.

Your company will provide you with your own business site that gives you the online tools to build a successful money making business. These tools can be used manually. Or you can automate the process by leveraging your own website you create here.

Think Differently

The old way to build a network marketing business was to talk to any and everyone to encourage them to join your network. And then to train them to do the same. In time you hope all will go well and you will have a network of associates all working hard to market the products and services, creating a stream of income flowing into their’s and your account too.

If you like doing this, it could work. People have done this for ages and have earned a lot of money in the process.

But what if you have fears that you would botch this up? And you turn your family and friends off!

It is time to think DIFFERENTLY! You can create a thriving business using the Internet. Here’s how in a nutshell.

Create Your Own Website – To provide solutions instead of selling!

You’re probably thinking you have no idea how to do that. Or if you have, you’re wondering how could you direct traffic of prospective customers and business partners to your website.

There is a way.

The fact that you have landed on my website shows that it can be done. And I am going to let you find out for yourself. If you happen to be a techie and already know the ropes, then you are ahead of the game. I still recommend reading what I have to say because the methods you use must combine Hi-Tech with Hi-Touch. Meaning you have to create valuable content that will keep visitors on your site long enough to make an informed decision.

How would you like to check for FREE the methods I am using? Not only that, you will have the option of getting started on your very own website right away! At the end of this post I promise to reveal the secret on how to do that.

But first, there are a few critical points I learned I want to share with you.

The Magic of Providing Valuable Content

People are always searching online for solution to problems they have. I have chosen a niche where I help individuals to obtain legal protection from a variety of things that can go wrong in their lives. I hope you have checked out some of my posts on this site that will give you an idea of what I mean. Just in case you haven’t, here is a link to one of my posts that highlights several problem areas that people face. Typical Legal Problems

No matter what company you represent, you can find solutions to problems people have, using your products or services. Ask questions on your website to help your prospects discover this for themselves. And not any solution. But the most optimum solution possible provided by YOUR company!

Become a problem solver. Not a salesperson. People like to buy. Not sold. Give them options to make a wise buying decision.

Building Your Network – through education

Once these prospects go to your website you will educate them about your products and services. Emphasize the myriad of issues that will be solved by using specific items that apply to them. Then create links that will transport your prospects directly to your marketing website provided by your company that will have relevant and helpful information.

Here are some ideas that you can consider providing compelling information to your prospects for popular products marketed.

Nutritional Supplements – how they provide specific health benefits

I am sure your company provides details on this topic. I suggest you use that to whet the appetite of your prospects using your own website first. In this way they will feel that you care and are knowledgeable enough to help them. This is the time to include strategic links that will take your prospect to the location where they can learn more as well as make purchases.

Even if they do not make a purchase at this time your system will have collected their contact information that you can use to put them into your Customer Relationship Manager. Here the system will periodically send them informative messages that will lead them to make a purchase. When you check out your examples I am sure you will find many examples of being the recipient of informational messages. Most will not take action. However, there will be a percentage of recipients where this information will mean something to them. If this copy is put together well, the probability is high they will be interested enough to come back again or even make a purchase.

Beauty and Energy Products – how to create a vibrant persona

The same argument for Nutritional Supplements apply here. In may cases these two product lines are promoted by the same company. Unlike supplements that provide long term health benefits, beauty and energy products provide immediate results. This resonates with a lot of people. I assume that your company has a unique selling proposition in their products that separates them from their competitors. Use this information to drive home a great reason why your prospect should buy from you. Do this in combination with providing solutions they are looking for.

What are the Main Objectives of Your Website?

  1. Created to land on Page 1 of the major search engines
  2. Choc full of valuable content that will be absorbing enough to keep your visitors engaged
  3. Makes it easy for your visitors to make an informed decision to BUY
  4. Once this decision is made, lead your prospects to your company site to complete the purchase
  5. Keep track of traffic activity on your website so that you can make decision to increase efficiency
  6. Educate your prospects about the opportunity to make money doing what you do
  7. Provide them with the path to create their own business website


Your company has its own brand. This is great for them. What about YOU? Prospects can go to any Independent Representative of your company. Why should they chose YOU?

Here is where you MUST create a brand that is uniquely YOU and stands out from the crowd. You have to provide exceptional value that will keep them coming back. And tell their friends the goldmine that they have discovered that they need to check out too.

My Promise – The Secret!

You can review the system that I use at no cost to you. In fact, when you sign in NO CREDIT CARD is required. All that is required is a valid Email address. And if you decide that this is not for you, there is no harm no foul.

Drum Roll Please!

I wish you happy exploring. Check out every detail. Rather than me telling you more, you can learn everything you need to know at this site. Then decide if this is the way for you to attract customers and prospects to grow YOUR business.

You deserve every success in the world. Go get it!

LegalShield Customer Reviews

Why just listen to what I say about the service provided by LegalShield. Listen to what some of its customers are saying below. Their situations cover a wide range of issues. I am sure you can find one or more you can relate to.

Real Estate – Frank of Lynbrook, NY

“I have had LegalShield for years. I have used it for my will and to get it updated over five times which is included in my monthly fee. But my greatest experience was when I had to retain an attorney regarding a lawsuit. They picked up my case in 2017 regarding a real estate deficiency claim from Florida. I was being sued for over $100k. I had a previous “non LegalShield” attorney who took thousands from me and I found out got disbarred due to negligence. Frantically I called LegalShield. I am in NY but the suit was in Florida. My LegalShield attorney was very patient, sincere and helpful. The issue was a five year one from being initially served in 2014. To make a long story short, it went to trial in February 2018. How did I feel when my attorney called me at home that morning to say “You won”? There are no words. I have only had positive experiences.”

No Lawyers Fee Needed – A.J. Huntington Beach, CA

“Every time I call LegalShield, I get advice that is otherwise not available. There is no lawyer who wants to give advice for a fee and the advice and services are completely priceless. With LegalShield, I can call about any issue and have an attorney call me back in 4 business hours or less. Incredible! While most of the reviews are positive, I am always curious about the bad ones. How could anyone have a bad review? It is clear that almost every bad review is because someone didn’t explain the services properly. When people feel misled, they make a complaint. For me, the membership has helped me so many times I couldn’t imagine not having my LegalShield membership.”

Prompt Response – Kristy, Dubuque, IA

“Atty. Steve ** was very prompt in returning my call and providing expert advice on my situation. I highly recommend LegalShield to everyone out there. It’s very affordable and provides peace of mind. The process is simple and non-intimidating.”

Peace of Mind – Karen W.

“I have been a LegalShield member for 1 year now. So, far I have made calls about various situations that I had needed Legal advice on and I have been very pleased. This service has helped a lot people that I know, also. I have peace of mind knowing I have this service.”

Child Custody – Keverick S. Goldsboro, NC

“I have been a LegalShield member for over a decade. I have used the services more than 10 times from child custody to disputes with car manufacturers. I am absolutely pleased with the results each time. I am a proud single parent of a young lady. LegalShield allowed me to bring my baby to a solid family life.”

Emergency Services – Willie, East Orange, NJ

“LegalShield has been a tremendous blessing to our family with the 24/7 Emergency Services during a being stopped late at night while out of town. Also with preparing my wife and I WILLS and document reviews. The Provider Law Firms are very helpful. To know that we have access to an Attorney with the use of a Mobile App means a lot to our family.”

Saved Lots of Money – T.M. Cincinnati, OH

Follow through with what they claim. Saved me a boat load of money over legal concerns. I feel at peace.

Affordable Service – Nic R. Minneapolis, MN

“This service is very affordable and easy to use. We updated our wills and were very happy with how quick and easy it was.”

Contract Issues – Carol K. Sacramento, CA

“My family has had Legal Shield way back when it was first known as Pre-Paid Legal! We have used their services countless time and in all cases we have been more than satisfied with the results! Most recently I contacted an attorney about a contract my husband and I signed when we were both ill… I already knew the answer – but I needed confirmation. I didn’t like the answer I got (I wasn’t happy with it) but I knew that it was the correct answer. This organization has saved my family many times! I am very glad to have it.”

Member for Life – Jeff, Hampstead, NC

“Simply the best, been a member since the 80’s saved thousands of dollars over the years!!!!! Anyone with normal intelligence that sees this program and understands the benefits will be a member for life!”

Medical Dispute Resolution – Jane, Berwyn, PA

“Me and my family have been a member now for 4 years. It has saved me/us so much money and stress. When my kids were in college it gave me peace of mind. I personally have used my provider law firm for my divorce, contract reviews, red light traffic violation, unlimited consultations and I save money on member discounts. Most recently a letter was written over a medical dispute. I went to a foot doctor for an infection. When the bill arrived, I was charged $810 for treatment I never received. I called the office 3xs to speak to the billing assistant and only got thru once. Despite my efforts, she would not budget and insisted I had a procedure that never happen. Within weeks, I received a notice it was going to a collection agency. That is when I called my provider law firm. I spoke to my attorney and he wrote a letter on my behalf pointing out if a test was negative, xyz wasn’t needed. I then received another bill and they had deducted $617 to which my lawyer sent another letter stating that in PA, the Unfair Trade Practices and Consumer Protection Law 73 P.S. 201-1 – 201-9.2 prohibits deceptive business practices such as this. I paid my amended bill for $193 for services rendered. Needless to say I never heard from them again nor did a collection agency come after me and ruin my good credit rating. Thank you LegalShield!”

Family Protection – April W. Aliso Viejo, CA

“I have been a happy member for 6 months. I have found many situations regarding employment, taxes and HOA to name a few where having the ability to consult an attorney was extremely helpful. My father uses his small biz membership for his corporation and it has saved him thousands in attorney fees over the years. Everyone has trivial legal matters and questions come up all the time they just may not realize it because they don’t think they can call an attorney. With LegalShield our family feels protected and at ease knowing we have a team of dedicated attorneys on our side.”

Multiple Simultaneous Issues – Orion P. Hurricane, UT

“I had three different legal issues to check on in one day :/ One was for a membership to a gym only a $30 issue. The second one was for a debt collector harassing me on a 12 year old debt I paid and the third was on a document review for my concealed weapons permit. These were all everyday situations I needed some good advice on. I called LegalShield at 12:00PM and by 2:00PM that same day I had received a call back from not 1 or 2 but 3 separate attorneys that were experienced in those areas! 3 Attorneys, 3 Problems ALL resolved in less than 2 hours for only $20.00? That was diabolical! Thanks.”

Court Representation – Cheryl P. Las Vegas, NV

“Legal Shield has always helped us with questions over the years and have been very helpful. This year we are using them in a court case and we are very pleased. We had accumulated hours to help pay lawyer fees and court costs. Great service. Thank you. I would recommend it to every one.”

Recognizes the Value – Glen A. Conroe, TX

“LegalShield offers a truly remarkable service. My regret is I was not aware of this service years ago. Would have saved me thousands of dollars, hours of time, and needless aggravation. Simple choice – $250 hour (without) or $20 per month (with) for legal advice.”

Saved $3000! – Steve, Warren, OH

“My LegalShield attorney saved me $3000 by winning my legal case. Only cost me $17 a month to have such great representation.”

LegalShield Review


The purpose of this review is to provide background information on LegalShield, details on the legal service provided by LegalShield. Pros and cons. How much does it cost. And what is the quality of service like. And my overall rating from 1 to 10.

Background Information

The Founder

LegalShield was founded by Harland Stonecipher in 1972 after he was involved in an auto accident and experienced negative legal consequences. That left him and his family at a financial disadvantage. His innovation was to provide legal services that was subscription based rather than paying an hourly rate to a lawyer. LegalShield later added Identity Theft protection to its members.

The Current CEO

Jeff Bell, the CEO of LegalShield held several VP positions at Chrysler where he launched the Chrysler 300. He also held several VP positions in Microsoft where one of his responsibilities was their gaming division where he transformed the Xbox division to profitability. Under Jeff Bell, LegalShield has grown significantly and now has over 1,400,000 members. LegalShield operates in the US and four Provinces in Canada.

Management Change – to handle growth

Mr. Stonecipher served as the CEO until 2011 when the company was purchased by MidOcean Partners. The current CEO is Jeff Bell, who held senior VP positions in Chrysler and Microsoft. LegalShield currently has over 1.4 Million members across 49 States and 4 Canadian Provinces where it provides its services.

Your Law Firm – Works for You

LegalShield has contracted with top law firms in major cities where it operates. When you join LegalShield, you are assigned to a Law Firm near you.

Membership Card

Your welcome package includes your membership card. Imprinted on this card are your membership number, the name and phone number of your law firm, the phone number of LegalShield HQ in Ada, Oklahoma. LegalShield has an App for iPhone and Android so that you can connect with your lawyer with the push of an L con on your screen.

How the plan works – it’s really simple

Once you become a member, call your Law Firm to discuss any issue that may require a legal perspective.

For example, you were taken advantage of by an airline. Or you need to sign a contract and want to know if you missed anything that could create a problem down the line.

Conveying Details To Your Law Firm

They will ask you for your membership number located on your membership card and your Email address and home address for verification. The agent will ask you for a summary of the issue involved and any pertinent information related to it.

Typical Response Time

Within four hours an attorney who is best equipped to help will call you. You can talk to the attorney as long as it is necessary for them to get all the information so that they can best advise you. If there are documents involved you will be asked to send it in either by fax or email using a scanned copy. Within three business days they will call you back with a response. If you have an emergency, you can call 24/7. Otherwise, normal business hours apply.

Managing Missed Calls

There is no limit to the number of issues you can call on. If the attorney calls you and you cannot take the call for any reason they will leave you a message saying they called. You can always call the Law Firm and set up a time slot when the attorney is available to connect.


You get an attorney expert in the field you need. The response is always within four hours of calling your Law Firm. In my case I got call backs within two hours.

The range of issues covered will take care of almost anything important to you. These are all clearly stated on the website.

There is no hourly charge involved. Your membership fee covers unlimited consultations.

You have a minimum number of hours a year the attorney can represent you in court. If you do not use up these hours they get carried over to the next year.

If you are audited by the IRS an attorney can accompany you to the audit.

The mobile app makes it easy to contact your Law Firm.

If you get a traffic ticket you can send a picture of it to your Law Firm using your app.

LegalShield plans range from individual to family as well as small business.

There is also a plan to give you Identity Theft protection, that includes social media.

The cost is very affordable and is excellent value taking into account the coverage.

LegalShield has been in this business for over 40 years, is well managed and has a very good rating by the Better Business Bureau.


There are a few situations that are not covered by the plan. These will be clearly stated. In those cases you can get legal representation at a 25% discount. Alternately, if you do not want to pay for this service you can get advice on what documents you will need to file in court and how to handle the situation yourself at no additional charge.

Most of the communication is done over the phone instead of a visit to the attorney.

It is possible that you do not provide all the information clearly that could lead to being hooked up with the wrong attorney. When the right communication is given this will be rectified. But it could delay the process. It is critical that all the right information is given from the start.

There is no free trial period. However, you can join at the individual level at $17.95 a month. If you like the service you can upgrade your plan. Or if you do not like it you can cancel.


The Pros far outweigh the Cons. Plans start at $17.95 a month. Monthly subscriptions that provide legal coverage and identity theft protection for a family plan is under $50. I think this is a small price to pay for having a huge load taken off your mind. Remember, you can call your Law Firm for any problem. The attorney will inform you of your legal rights coupled with advice on the best way to resolve your problem.

My overall score for LegalShield is 9 out of 10. I didn’t give it a 10 because of the few cons that I discussed. 

I have been a member of LegalShield for over 10 years and the company has helped me make informed decisions on many issues as well as fight for me to make sure I was not taken advantaged of.
