LegalShield, Inc. is an independent company established in 1972 to allow access to attorneys in fashion similar to health plans helping you access medical professionals and hospitals. Formerly known as Prepaid Legal Services, Inc., options include plans for individuals and families, small businesses, home-based businesses, and employee benefits. Many of the legal services you’ll need will be covered for a small monthly cost, and substantial discounts are given if you require help in areas not covered by the plan.
In addition to access to attorneys for preparation of wills, telephone consultations, letters and legal document/contract review, you can receive assistance with moving traffic violations, drivers license assistance, personal injury/property damage collection (amounts under $2000), trial defense services, IRS Audit legal services, and discounts on other services. You’ll want to review the materials provided by LegalShield for all of the specifics. Family plans start at $15.95/mo.
Identity Theft is a serious problem, increasing every year. As part of a package of legal services, this valuable protection may be added for as little as $9.95/mo. You’ll have access to consumer protection services who will spend the time to undo the damage which may be caused if your identity is stolen and fraudulent charges appear on your credit cards. Newly expanded in 2013, there is an additional option to elevate your coverage to “Premium” status, with many additional services.
Business Plans include access to a website containing sample documents and forms, researchers are available to respond to your specific questions, and many other resources are offered for small businesses.
