Protecting people is our business. It has been for more than 40 years. In 1969, our founder, Harland Stonecipher, had an epiphany. His life savings had just been depleted after being forced to defend himself against an accusation that he was responsible for a motor vehicle accident. He found himself financially unprepared for the legal costs he incurred, even though the accident was not his fault. From that day forward, he was determined to make sure everyone has access to legal protection. No matter how traumatic or trivial the situation. That’s how LegalShield was born.
What if instead of shelling out hefty fees for a few days of legal help, you paid a monthly membership and got a law firm for life? Well, we're taking legal representation and making some revisions—in the form of accessible, affordable, full-service coverage. Finally, you can live life knowing you have a lawyer in your back pocket who, at the same time, isn't emptying it.
IDShield, a division of LegalShield, continues that mission today by providing identity protection to more than a million people in 50 states and four Canadian provinces. No other company combines the expertise of the most knowledgeable identity protection specialists in the industry. 24/7, 365 days a year, our team of dedicated individuals does whatever it takes, for as long as it takes, to keep our members safe.
It is with this heritage of protection that we are proud to join the AiN Group.
