Membership in LegalShield doesn’t take business away from lawyers.

LegalShield membership has been a blessing for our family.

First, let me say that my wife and I are associates.  What’s interesting is that we don’t extol the virtues of the membership because we are associates.  We are associates because of the membership!



We hear people blow off the membership in many different ways.  “My friend is a lawyer”.  “My relative is a lawyer”.  Some lawyers don’t understand the concept so they make the claim this just takes business away from “legitimate” lawyers.

When a situation arises, you don’t want to call your relative or friend because of something like  your cell company being unfair and wanting to charge you $50 for something you didn’t ask for.  You will pay the bill just to avoid calling your friend or family member and wouldn’t even consider making the call if you had to pay for it.



Now think about this.  The membership makes it so that you aren’t afraid to pick up the phone and ask a question.  In many cases, it may help prevent higher cost or recover cost.  LegalShield membership makes it affordable to make the call.  And, you make it.  Explain how that took business from lawyers?  Explain how that took business from your family member or friend?

It doesn’t.

What the membership does do is allow you to take action and maintain peace of mind you might not otherwise have.  In some cases, by having your questions answered in the early stages, you may even be able to determine there is a case for litigation that you might be able to hire your family member or friend for.  Without the membership allowing you to ask the questions, you may not have hired them because you would have walked away from the situation because it was just too expensive to ask the questions and you didn’t believe there was anything there.

In the end, it actually proved the case for business with your family lawyer.



It’s my personal experience that my membership has prevented me from over paying in some cases and there is no way to put a price on the peace of mind in other cases.

We have saved enough because of the membership to pay the cost for at least 10 years before I would consider myself out of pocket.  Actually, it now pays me more than I pay for the membership!

Next time someone approaches you about a LegalShield membership, at least hear them out.
