About Us

Protecting people is our business. It has been for more than 40 years. In 1969, our founder, Harland Stonecipher, had an epiphany. His life savings had just been depleted after being forced to defend himself against an accusation that he was responsible for a motor vehicle accident. He found himself financially unprepared for the legal costs he incurred — even though the accident 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.

 

Why We Started

We wanted to level the playing field. Legal issues can mean trouble for anyone. Now, no matter who you are or how much money you have, LegalShield can help with a range of legal services that support you launching and running your business.
