Protection for your family, your business and your personal identity
Terri J Lee S.
I originally joined LegalShield because I wanted to get my will completed. However, I have kept my membership because of the value it provides. I feel good knowing that if I have a legal question or if I need help with a legal document, I can contact LegalShield. I would highly recommend this company, and in fact, I have referred some of my friends and family members
It was awesome! The Provider Firm that I spoke to was great and the cost of this service is great, too. My wife, kids and I have a Provider Firm in the palm of our hands. For $24.95/mo., the investment is well worth it.

Provider law firms may be prevented by ethical rules from presenting a claim, defense, or legal position that the law firm believes to be frivolous or without merit. It is up to the Provider Lawyer's professional judgment as to whether or not your claim, defense or legal position may prevail in court or is frivolous or without merit. Emergency services are subject to conditions imposed by the detaining/questioning authority.

We all have choices when it comes to saving money and protecting assets. Many states go out of there way to create an environment for investment. Some states however, lack people with credentials or a proven track record. You must take reasonable care before entering into an agreement or a transaction with any Secretary of State Corporation Division.
