To help people improve their lives by teaching life-transforming skills; to deliver exceptional products and services that promote peace of mind and confidence in a world that is often times uncaring and selfish.
Our Vision is to provide equal access to the Liberty, Equality, Opportunity, and Justice that every North American deserves and expects.
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, continues our mission by providing legal protection to over 1.6 million members in 50 states and four Canadian provinces. Our network of dedicated lawyers works diligently to keep individuals, families and businesses safe, 24/7/365. 

It began by accident. In 1969 Harland Stonecipher came face-to-face with the high price of justice when a car accident he was involved in found its way into the courts. Even though the accident was not his fault, the staggering costs of legal protection nearly destroyed him financially. This traumatic experience planted the seeds of a vision that would eventually become Pre-Paid Legal Services Inc., the company that is revolutionizing justice in America by giving average citizens access to top lawyers for as little as $15 a month. Discover the dramatic story of Pre-Paid Legal and its army of enthusiastic associates who together make legal protection not just a privilege for the few, but a right for all.
