They assist our members during some of the most challenging times of their lives. They make calls, write letters and prepare legal documents on behalf of LegalShield members faced with landlord-tenant disputes. They help secure the future of families through excellent, thoughtful estate planning. They are there when a challenge like an automobile incident, divorce, or civil litigation strikes unexpectedly. Today, we honor their dedication and hard work.”
