Do I Need Legal Protection?


You never know when life is going to gift you with a legal challenge or even shower you with a few in rapid succession. 

At just about any stage in life, you will be faced with legal situations you cannot handle on your own. Having legal protection at the ready gives you peace of mind as you move through all life’s chapters, knowing that an attorney stands ready to help you when these matters surface.

Here are Your Options:

Option 1: Having a Lawyer on Retainer

You can have a lawyer positioned to help you at any time by having a lawyer on retainer. By paying a lump sum to an attorney before a legal issue arises, you reserve the lawyer’s availability to you when you need their legal assistance. At this point, the attorney taps into the retainer “deposit” you placed to pay for legal fees as work is done on your case.

This kind of legal protection typically falls outside most people’s budgets.  A lawyer’s hourly rate, which can be hundreds of dollars per hour, can quickly suck up your retainer fee and you will then be billed monthly for additional hours worked on your case. 

Option 2: Purchase a Legal Protection Plan

An economical way to be prepared for the legal fees that come along with everyday legal mishaps is to purchase a legal protection plan. 

LegalShield has 1.7 million members who take advantage of our affordable, on-demand access to legal services. LegalShield has worked out partnerships with leading law firms across North America and as a result, each of our members pays far less for legal assistance than they would otherwise.

Small Business Legal Protection

Starting a small business involves running through a maze of legal procedures. For example, you'll need support to get your company established as a legal entity. From there, you face all sorts of legally based set-up issues, like composing an employee handbook of company policies, constructing employee and vendor contracts, navigating lease and service provider agreements, and so on. 

Once your small business is up and running, you might as well be a sitting duck for a wide range of other legal situations. Intellectual property disputes, contract violations and debt collection are just a few examples of the legal battles you may encounter. 

Larger corporations might hire legal counsel to take care of these and other business legal issues as they arise. This is a costly venture that most small businesses simply cannot afford. As a result, they open their checkbooks every time a contract needs to be reviewed or another legal issue pops up.

These legal fees can be crippling for a small business but are often considered to be the price of doing business. So many businesses accept the loss and move on. This is why the LegalShield Small Business Plan was created.
