I wanted to share this little video with you. It’s a nice LegalShield story but it is also a true story. I know the gentleman it happened to. And yes he did use his LegalShield Membership for a missing trash can.
Not exactly something you would look in the phonebook and hire a lawyer to handle for you. It was only an $80 recycling bin. Most people would simply pay the $80 and forget about it. It would cost more to hire the attorney than the recycling bin is worth.
That right there is the beauty of a LegalShield membership. The little issues that we simply accept, even when we know they are wrong, because paying an attorney to right the situation costs more than the situation itself. LegalShield allows you to take advantage of the scales of justice by freeing you from the scales of ‘what’s in your wallet.’ Those little issues may not seem like much when you compare them to the attorney fees, but those little issues add up. A $25 issue here, a $30 issue there, a $50 issue next month; eventually they can tally up to a $500 bundle of issues and for most of us the tally is way higher.
Think back to all the times you got stuck with a defective product and couldn’t get your money back. How many times have you gotten charged for a repair that was not done correctly? Has a dry cleaners ever ruined an item of clothing. Your luggage ever been lost by the airlines? These are all issues that cost you money and you let it slide because you know it would cost much more to get an attorney involved. You allow yourself to be nickeled and dimed out of hard earned cash unfairly.
LegalShield gives you access to an attorney when things like this happen as a standard benefit of your membership. By the way, just to let you know how ‘trivial’ an issue our LegalShield attorneys have handled, a good friend of mine has a laminated money order that is the record for the smallest amount his provider law firm has ever written for a member. He was charged a small service ‘fee’ by a car wash when he had free car washes for a year that came along with his new car. The attorneys wrote a letter for $3, the cost of the fee, my friend got his $3 back but it did not stop there. The car wash stopped charging that fee to everyone! So not only was my friend’s rights protected thanks to LegalShield, everyone who uses that car wash now enjoys no additional service fee!
