LegalShield

All Delaware State Chamber members and member companies now have the opportunity to access affordable legal services.

LegalShield is one of the nation’s leading providers of legal safeguards for individuals, families, small businesses and employee groups. The Delaware State Chamber of Commerce is proud to make these programs available to its members and member companies throughout Delaware and surrounding market areas.

Member companies can join the more than 34,000 companies currently offering LegalShield’s personal legal plans as a voluntary benefit to their employees. Through LegalShield’s personal legal plans, employees gain access to unlimited personal legal advice from LegalShield provider attorneys on topics such as mortgages, wills, contracts, and much more. Employees also have the option to enroll in LegalShield’s identity theft plans for the added benefits of identity monitoring and identity restoration services. LegalShield’s personal legal plans also effectively reduce employee stress and absenteeism while driving increased productivity.

In addition to the personal plans, member companies can join more than 47,000 small businesses nationwide and enroll in the Small Business Plan. The Small Business Plan provides member companies with legal advice and counsel on any business legal issue, contract and document review, debt collection, trial defense and more. In eliminating cost barriers associated with obtaining legal counsel, LegalShield’s Small Business Plan ensures members have access to the legal support they need to grow and protect their businesses.

LegalShield offers one of the industry’s most efficient and affordable identity theft plans. Members receive identity theft protection for the entire family for the cost most competitors charge to cover a single individual. LegalShield legal plans cover more than 1.4 million families and 3.7 million lives across North America. For as low as $20 per month, LegalShield members get access to attorneys who are experienced in the areas of law that most impact families and small businesses. Unlike other legal plans or do-it-yourself websites, LegalShield has dedicated law firms in 49 states and 4 provinces in Canada that members can call for help without having to worry about high hourly rates. The attorneys at these firms have an average of 19 years of experience in such areas as family matters, estate planning, financial and business issues, consumer protection, tax, real estate, benefits dispute and auto/driving issues. In 2012 alone, LegalShield law firms received more than 2.1 million calls from members.
