I have been an Associate for Prepaid legal currently Legal Shield since 2006. I worked hard and earned the rank of Director with this company. I also earned the rights to sale there CDLP Plans There Business Plans and there Group plans. I worked very hard to gain a small business with members. but as time went by I had some problems with the attorneys that didn't seem to want to do anything when I called them for help. So in frustration I stopped the prepaid legal plan that I was paying for which was a Business plan. and was somewhat expensive not the cheap plans they offer by far. so after a while they told me that if I didn't sign back up for a legal plan they would discontinue my Associate agreement. so OK as to keep my Agreement active and to get paid for my hard work I decided to sign back up for a legal plan only to be told that I could not sign back up. since I had made a complaint about the law firm I was not able to reactivate my plan. I have several hundred dollars worth of there DVD"S and Advertisement junk now as I cannot use it. I am very disapointed that this company thinks that they can just take away a persons business at anytime with no regards for the investment that was made by the Associate. I have decided to write this post to hopefully stop someone that might read this at least take a closer look at this company before falling into there trap. There are a few people that make money with them but it is far a few between. and there service is not what they claim it is. If you just need a letter once in a while they may be ok as long as it doesn't really have anything to do with any real legal action. I had payed over $3000.00 in membership fees to this company when I was told by them that they would not even write a letter to an Insurance company that had stopped paying my disability payments. and went on to tell me that they did not represent me as a client. There sales pitch is they will write a letter. read it carefully it really reads they will write a letter or make a phone call only at there discression which means they will do nothing. at least that was what it amounted to in my case. so I filed a complaint with Legal shield and this is what I got for it. I tried to explain everything to customer service which had already closed there ears to anything I had to say. anyway the bottom line is they stole my business from me and I am stuck with there crap. but I hope that my story will help you. please don't make the mistake I made. I hope with all my heart that this will save at least one person but the more that read it and the more it saves the better I will feel for posting it. if you have any questions or similar experiences with this company please post to this lets save the ones we can from the big giant ripoff company's that seek to take advantage of us out there and this is one of them.
