I signed up as a Regional Manager with a Cellular Company on East Coast, spent $999.00 and had to purchase their phone before selling them. When I received it I found They had no coverage in our area, I live at Lake Nacimiento, near Paso Robles ,California. Long story short, When I asked for the $1299.00 I had invested back since wasn't going to sell a phone that had little coverage near here, They told me "Too Bad" So I opened the My Legalshield App on my phone, Tap, Tap on Call My Law firm, Parker-Stanbury and next thing I knew, 2 weeks later I receive a check for $1299.00. My membership the first use paid for it self for years to come!! :)

Austin and Banks Law Firm
I got hurt at work and workman comp wasn't trying to help me so I called Austin & Banks. Almost one year to the day I had my settlement.. I know other people who have cases one as old as 6yrs that still have not got paid. I was extremely satisfied with the amount of time it took which means they work hard to help u in a time of I need and I would most definitely recommend them to any one

In response to the negative review below, I am the part-time prosecutor at Tupelo. I'm guessing she didn't like that I didn't believe her story and dismiss their ticket. If not believing her constitutes calling her a liar them that's probably true. I did not call her a liar because I don't need to. Obviously the judge agreed with my evaluation.

My attorney gave me answers to a couple of legal questions about my business that had been haunting me for a long time, but I never wanted to pay the high attorney fees to find out the answers. Within minutes I was able to get the answers and make corrections in my business to be better protected. Thank you LegalShield!

If the lawyers are anything like the lady that took the intake information, then I know I am in good hands and on the right path.
Tips & Advices
When it comes time to choose a lawyer, you should start by searching close to home. If you do have attorneys you are familiar with, ask who they believe would be best for you. After going through personal references - especially from individuals who had similar needs - you should broaden your search through public information resources. You can call your area's attorney referral service or check legal organizations like Martindale-Hubbell. There are other resources available online, such as yellowpages.com. You can check websites for client reviews and other third-party forms of approval.
If you sign documents and you come across a word you don't recognize, or you need help to navigate important employment or real estate paperwork. Also, during times when personal matters intersect with legal proceedings, you might need to have an advocate to prevent your emotions from getting in the way. If you've been accused of a crime or are in a terrible financial situation, you can find an attorney who will work with what you have available.
When you hire a lawyer, you're agreeing to work with someone over a certain period of time. The more forthcoming the lawyer appears to be with individual needs, the better.
  • You need to ask questions about how the attorney will communicate with you and what responsibilities you hold in the relationship.
  • The attorney should let you know the best channel for quick communication and you need to inform him or her when you want updates.
  • You should also ask questions to get to know the attorney as an individual in order to ensure this is a person you can trust. Ask about their legal philosophy and how he or she views the lawyer/client relationship. Ask as how to keep fees down or what daily disruptions you should expect from a long legal battle.
You need to ask about every possible fee that will come up when working with an attorney. You should request a list of all costs in advance so you won't be surprised by additional expenses like overhead. Also determine exactly when you will start being billed. You want to inspect paperwork carefully. If the attorney charges you for his or her experience, you need to make sure he or she will perform tasks personally and not hand it off to an assistant. Find out if the attorney has a flat fee or charges by the hour. Many civil lawyers work on contingency. Make inquiries about how the lawyer plans to provide service for your money and what you can do if you start to feel unsatisfied with his or her performance.
You can ask how many similar cases they have handled and if they have special skills or training that applies specifically to your needs. Lawyers can't mention clients by name, but you should ask for basic details about identical past cases. You should check their office for the appropriate certifications and diplomas. You can also ask how long he or she has practiced law and request information that demonstrates the practice's success. Look for precise details such as percentage of cases settled out of court.
