We Protect and Empower
Who We Are
LegalShield has been a pioneer in providing legal plans for nearly 50 years, and our mission has been a straightforward, practical approach. In a perfect world, you’d never need a lawyer, but in an unpredictable world it helps to have a team of lawyers on your side. LegalShield has made smart legal coverage simple - in the form of accessible, affordable, full-service coverage.
A Team Of Lawyers
LegalShield has a network of dedicated law firms in 50 states and all Canadian provinces and territories made up of seasoned lawyers, each averaging 22 years of experience. Our Provider Law Firms provide legal protection to over 4 million members, even in covered emergency situations, 24/7/365 days a year.
People need legal coverage without the complexity because life can be unpredictable and the law can be complicated. LegalShield created a model for legal coverage in which you know exactly what you’re getting and precisely how much you’re paying for it. Once you sign up, you can sit back, relax, and know you’re covered by an entire law firm.
