Legal Shield, Inc.
Independent Associate, Manager
January 2009 — February 2012
Legal Shield®, Inc. was one of the first companies in the United States organized solely to design, underwrite and market legal expense plans. For a low monthly fee of $26 or less, the Company's legal expense plans (referred to as memberships) offer a variety of legal services in a manner similar to medical reimbursement plans or HMOs.
The Company currently provides legal services to over 1.5 million families across the U.S. and Canada. Plan benefits are delivered through a network of independent provider law firms. Members have direct, toll-free access to their provider law firm rather than having to comb through a yellow-page style directory for a referral. Provider firms are carefully selected and the quality of service is closely monitored to maintain the high standards of Legal Shield.
We give members access to professional legal counsel not only for traditional legal problems, but for everyday events such as buying a house or a car, creating a will, handling a problem with an insurance company, dealing with identity theft, and much more, where legal review should be routine, but rarely is. These events can be among the most important events in a person's life, yet there is a tendency for them to take place without proper legal review. For Legal Shield members, access to legal counsel is only a toll-free phone call away.
We also help companies, at no cost to the employer, reduce thier risk and liabilities with the new Identity Theft Laws. We give our members the help that they need before, during and after they are a victim with a credit report, countinous monoriting and full restoration. Which sets us apart from any other company.
