What exactly is a legal subscription service?

Instead of paying a lawyer by the hour, pay a small monthly fee and get access to a lawyer that can advise you on a huge variety of issues—but without a huge bill.

Affordable Advice From Real Estate Lawyers

Have you been looking for property lawyers online? LegalShield has a network of 39 law firms, with lawyers licensed to practice in all 50 states. With hundreds of lawyers averaging 22 years of experience, we have the knowledge and experience to connect you with the right real estate attorney. And because our provider law firms are prepaid, their sole focus is on serving you — not billing you.

Get Affordable Legal Advice from a Trusted Estate Planning Attorney

Estate planning can be confusing and costly. A legal plan from LegalShield provides access to experienced lawyers at an affordable price. Our personal legal plan lets you get consultation and assistance from a provider law firm, and even includes having that firm draft your Last Will & Testament, Living Will and Power of Attorney at no additional cost. Our most popular family plan is just $24.95/month and covers you, your spouse and your children.

Affordable Legal Help From Family Law Lawyers

Family law issues like divorce, child custody and adoption can be some of the most difficult to deal with due to the strong emotions involved. It’s not uncommon to feel uncertain and scared. Having the comforting hand of a competent provider lawyer to guide you will reduce stress, protect your rights and minimize negative impact on any children involved. For as little as $24.95/month, a LegalShield legal plan gets you access to a team of experienced lawyers, so you can resolve the issue correctly and legally, and move on with your life.

CCW Coverage Offered Through RPOAC

As retired peace officers many of us are authorized to carry a concealed weapon. But, have you given any thought to what your liabilities could be if you were to have to use that weapon in a self-defense incident? The legal costs alone could devastate your retirement nest egg not to mention the physical and emotional stress it would inflect on you and your family.


CCW Safe was founded by former police officers and attorneys who have all worked on local, and federal levels of law enforcement. CCW Safe is a legal service membership plan that was designed for CCW permit/license holders and retired law enforcement officers. CCW Safe was founded to offer similar coverages to what we received while serving our communities as active police officers.

They are committed to improving the working conditions of law enforcement officers and the safety of those they serve through education, legislation, information, community involvement, and employee representation.
