Why Don’t People Call Attorneys
They are intimidated by lawyers.
They don’t know who to call.
They believe it would cost too much.
The Main Reasons People Don’t Seek Legal Counsel: The Most Common Responses to a Legal Dispute Are to:
Ignore the problem
Try to handle it personally

Five Common Types of Identity Theft
Identity Theft is not just about credit cards! Identity theft is an international crime and access to an attorney may be critical.
Drivers License Medical Financial Social Security Character/ Criminal
Credit Report and Continuous Monitoring
You will receive an up-to-date credit report through Experian at no additional charge with your membership.
Your credit files will be regularly monitored. Suspicious activity will be brought to your attention, providing you with early detection.
You’ll receive prompt notice if any new accounts are opened in your name...
or if derogatory notations are
added to your credit report.
If your identity is stolen, you need more than just information about how to restore your name and credit rating. As an Identity Theft Shield SM member you can rest easy knowing experienced professionals are working for you!
Fraud alert notifications will be sent on your behalf and applicable follow up will be done with affected agencies and institutions.
Proactive searches of applicable
local and national databases will
be made on your behalf to look
for information you may not have
Identity Restoration will not apply if the identity theft is the result of a dishonest, criminal, malicious, or fraudulent act you, your spouse, or your child participated in, directed, or had knowledge of. Restoration services will not be provided for a known stolen identity event that occurred prior to enrollment date. You must be an active member to receive restoration services. Services provided do not cover financial losses arising from the identity theft. A signed limited power of attorney must be provided to Kroll when an Identity Theft Restoration case is opened in order for Kroll to work on your behalf and/or provide the Proactive Database Searches listed. A stolen identity event does not include the theft or unauthorized or illegal use of your business name, d/b/a, or any other method of identifying your business activity.
Safeguard for Minors
Children under the age of 18 have a much higher risk of identity theft than is commonly realized. Thieves target them because the child’s information may be used for years without discovery … until the minor is old enough to establish credit.
Education, early detection, and expert consultation make for a powerful package of tools to minimize this risk.
Up to four minor children can
be enrolled for monitoring to
detect existing credit files and
it will cost the member only
$1 more per month per family.
All dependent children up to 18
are covered for consultation and restoration.
How Much Will Peace of Mind Cost?
With the Pre-Paid Legal Life Events Legal Plan you will receive all these benefits for just $26 or less per month! And the Identity Theft Shield can be added for
an additional $9.95 per month.
That’s less than the price of a
bottle of water a day.
