Whether we realize it or not, legal agreements hold our lives together. If you live in an apartment, you are bound by your lease. If you live in a house, you are bound by your mortgage. If you are working, you are bound by your contract. But what measures do we take to ensure that there are no lapses in these agreements? We know it is vital for us to protect our health and homes with insurance. However, we seldom think about what can protect us from the legal issues that are a part of our daily lives. In fact, 57 million full-time working Americans have experienced at least one significant legal event in the past 12 months.
Equal Access America™ (EAA) is a national campaign that focuses on creating awareness and providing access to affordable legal coverage. We at Equal Access America (EAA) understand firsthand, how important legal coverage is. We’ve seen the benefits of people getting covered and having access to a lawyer that provides counsel and advocates on their behalf. Then it dawned on us, how many people are left vulnerable because they lack legal coverage? How many people have been victims of unethical business practices? How many people have signed a document without being well informed? How many families have been financially burdened with funeral costs because their loved one did not have a will? The list of liabilities goes on. Alarmingly, we found that 90% of Americans don’t have any legal insurance or legal protection. Equal Access America is determined to change that.
Equal Access America can ensure both quality and affordability because of our partner organization. We partnered with LegalShield, a reputable company that has offered quality legal services since 1972. LegalShield has been providing legal coverage to North America for the past 40 years, and now serves 1.4 million families in 49 states and 4 Canadian providences. LegalShield also provides affordable identity theft protection. LegalShield employs a dedicated attorney network of 6,900 attorneys with an average of 19 years experience. LegalShield pays the attorneys in advance so they are obligated to give you expedient and quality council. All of the attorneys working with LegalShield must be in good standing with their state’s bar association and align to LegalShield’s expectation of quality member service. In addition, LegalShield collaborates with the top identity theft agency, Kroll Identity Theft Solutions, to give members the optimum identity theft protection.
We have decided to name our campaign Equal Access America because we are passionate about providing everyone access to legal coverage. Unfortunately, most Americans cannot afford quality legal coverage. In fact, 93% of respondents from the Legal Needs Study, believe lawyers charge too much for their services. At Equal Access America, we provide you access to legal coverage that does not charge traditional lawyer fees. This is why we believe we can provide an opportunity to the affordable alternative.
