A Service Born Out of Necessity…
When Harland Stonecipher was in a motor vehicle accident and hospitalized in 1969, he realized it was money, not rights that gained you access to our legal system. After depleting his life savings defending himself against something he didn’t do, Stonecipher was determined to make legal protection accessible to everyone, everywhere, no matter how traumatic or trivial the situation, so that no one would ever be blindsided again. And that’s exactly what he did.
Now with over 4 million users, LegalShield not only provides legal services in 49 states and 4 Canadian Provinces; but also it provides confidence and peace of mind for families everywhere. For one low monthly fee our members gain access to quality law firms without having to worry about high hourly costs. Because our attorneys are all paid in advance, they provide the same level of service for trivial or traumatic legal situations.
With humble beginnings in Ada, Oklahoma, LegalShield has now grown to a 170,000-square-foot corporate office on an 80-acre campus with over 650 dedicated employees. Our leaders have decades of experience and our goal remains the same – to create a world where everyone can access legal protection and everyone can afford it.
With a System Proven to Work
At LegalShield, it’s not just that we believe everyone deserves legal protection. But, we believe everyone deserves great legal protection, which is why we take the selection of our law firms very seriously.
Over the past 30 years, we’ve chosen some of the finest law firms throughout North America to serve our members. Your law firm has been carefully selected because of its service philosophy, size and ability to provide you with caring, responsive legal services when you need them most.
In addition, all our law firms are paid in advance, so instead of worrying about billing you, our attorneys are waiting to serve you.
Our provider attorneys must:
- Be in good standing with the state bar association
- Have a service philosophy parallel to the high standards of LegalShield
- Understand and appreciate the everyday legal needs our members face
