An Honest LegalShield MLM Review

This post may contain links from our sponsors. See our disclosure for more information.

The LegalShield MLM opportunity has stood the test of time. With so many mlm companies going belly up, this company has certainly outlasted many in the industry. In this review I am going to share more information with you, so that you can make an informed decision as to if this opportunity is right for you.

LegalShield MLM Explained

LegalShield is an MLM company that was founded back in 1972 and is Headquartered in Ada, Oklahoma. The company was formerly known as Pre-Paid Legal and in 2011 changed the company name to Legal Shield in 2011. The mlm arm of the company started and has been active since 1983.

This company has a legal services product portfolio which offers services in the US and Canada specializing in the following legal areas:

  • Landlord / Tenant
  • Consumer Finance
  • Traffic
  • Estate Planning
  • Real Estate
  • Employment
  • Collection
  • Family Law
  • Civil Litigation
  • Criminal

What Products/Services Does LegalShield Offer?

The company offers a basic legal service and an identity theft product, which includes identity theft monitoring and restoration. Their products are very affordable and I have been using this service for years.

Their Legal Plan starts as low as $15.95 per month for a standard family plan, with their Identity Theft Family Plan starting at around $25.95 per month.

I’ve been a real estate investor for many years and there have been times when I have needed legal consultation and this service has proven to be invaluable.

In situations where I had to go to court to deal with landlord/tenant issues, I was given a referral for an attorney at a discounted rate as a member of LegalShield. Up until my court date, I was given legal counsel through my provider law firm as part of the service.

The benefit of having a law firm at your disposal is one of those things that you don’t realize how valuable it is until you need it. I also had family members and friends who went through divorces and legal issues who utilized my service as well.

It actually feels good to be able to say, “I’m going to contact my lawyer…” and not be bluffing.

The thing that I like most about LegalShield is that the products can stand on it’s own. It’s not just a company designed to get you to part with your money. The service is top notch and you have thousands of happy customers who could care less about being an associate.

Is LegalShield Legit?

I believe in the company. They have been around for many years and I have used the service too many times to count over the years. They have reviewed documents for me. Drafted up letters for me and done a great job.

As far as the opportunity goes, I would say it might be tough to promote these days. The concept has been around for a long time and you even have most companies offering this service to their employees as part of their benefits package for a small fee. It’s definitely much cheaper this way.

If I were to promote this opportunity I would niche it down to say real estate investors or something like that. I’m not sure your average everyday person would feel they need the service until they actually need it.

The company has been very successful posting $400 million (2014) in revenues and with over 1,751,000 members and serving over 141,000 businesses.

The LegalShield MLM Opportunity

To become a LegalShield associate and join the mlm opportunity last I checked it was around $99 for a starter kit. With this starter kit you get the “business in a box” which also gives you access to:

  • Training
  • Your sponsor (upline) and team
  • Your back office and
  • Marketing materials

Here’s a recent tweet from one associate sharing a LegalShield training highlight:

One of the major drawbacks to the business opportunity is the pay structure. There are some issues that I have come across and have heard of which requires that you do your due diligence if you choose this opportunity.

If I were to promote this opportunity I would niche it down to say real estate investors or something like that. Or maybe estate planning. Otherwise, I’m not sure your average everyday person would feel they need the service until they actually need it.

Here’s a presentation on the company for you to give you a better idea of their products and the opportunity.


LegalShield has been around for over 4 decades. In that time the company has went through some challenges but they’re still standing. The products and services are solid and they have over a million happy customers which speaks to the strength of the service.

I actually use the service myself and have been for many years. If you’re looking to promote this opportunity, it is important that you do your due diligence as you should with any company.
