101 Reasons Having an Attorney Makes Sense

101 Reasons Having an Attorney Makes Sense

Most people have Life Insurance, Auto Insurance, Property Insurance, Medical Insurance, etc. They feel comfortable knowing that if a situation occurs, they can call and file a claim for a covered event.

I came across this old list on the many reasons that people use LegalShield and thought it was still extremely relevant.

I cut and pasted the list below. It’s pretty incredible how the outcome of so many common everyday situations could be changed with the intervention of an attorney.

Unfortunately, people find out too late that they are more likely to need an attorney than admitted into the hospital.

Keep these things in mind and please don’t wait until a situation occurs then find out you don’t have coverage.

All the best.
