Protecting people is our business. It has been for more than 40 years. In 1969, our founder, Harland Stonecipher, had an epiphany. He found himself financially unprepared for the legal costs he incurred from an accident even though it was not his fault. From that day forward, he was determined to make sure everyone has access to legal protection. No matter how traumatic or trivial the situation. That's how LegalShield was born.

Today, LegalShield provides legal protection to nearly 2 million members in 50 states and 4 Canadian provinces. Our network of dedicated lawyers works diligently to keep individuals, families and businesses safe, 24/7/365 for covered emergencies.

Why We Started

We wanted to level the playing field. Legal issues can mean trouble for anyone, but not everyone could afford legal protection. We created LegalShield to change that. Now, no matter who you are or how much money you have, LegalShield can help with a range of legal services.

What We Believe In

We’re driven to help people. We believe that by educating, protecting, and serving our members, we can improve their lives dramatically. With legal protection year round and legal advice only a click or phone call away, you can truly worry less, and live more.

We’re proud to have high-standards. You’re that important to us. We partner with law firms across the United States and Canada with lawyers who have experience in a range of issues. In fact, our lawyers have an average of 20 years of experience serving their community, and they’re ready to help you today.
