Can you cancel online?

No, LegalShield does not provide a method for customers to cancel their memberships online. You must speak to one of their staff members by calling them on 1-844-714-8494 or sending an email to [email protected] to process a membership cancellation.

Is it hard to cancel?

Yes, LegalShield has purposely made it harder to cancel a membership with them in order to be able to try and persuade you to stay onboard. They provide no way to cancel online meaning you must speak with their staff in order to cancel.

Can you get a refund?

Generally speaking, no, refunds are not available when you cancel your LegalShield membership. Your account will simply be active until the next billing date following which you’ll no longer be able to ask their lawyers or attorneys any questions.

Why do people cancel their LegalShield membership?

LegalShield was first founded in 1972, meaning it was offering legal advice to consumers far before it started offering digital members through its online platform. It has 600 employees and more than 7,000 independent contractors providing legal advice to people over the internet. One of the reasons they’ve become so popular is the range of services they provide, handing out legal advice to individuals, small businesses, and more. They’ve also invested quite heavily in improving their mobile app to provide members with a better experience when seeking legal advice through their phone. Despite the improvements, however, not everyone is pleased with the advice they’re receiving, and many have opted out altogether by ending their memberships and moving on.

Which leads to one of the most popular reasons people end up cancelling, because the legal advice they’re receiving isn’t what they’re looking for. Whether it’s inadequate, not up to standard, or they simply believe it’s wrong, if you’re paying for something that you don’t believe is of value, you shouldn’t be paying for it anymore. This is also why so many people have decided to cancel Peacock and move to another streaming service.

The second most popular reason to cancel, and one that LegalShield has no control over, is that the customer simply no longer needs legal advice. Whether they’re no longer operating a business or they no longer need legal advice as an individual, there’s no point in paying for something if you’re not going to use it anymore. If you know someone who’s cancelled their subscription to AMC Plus, you might also find out this is the same reason they cancelled.

Final thoughts

LegalShield provides a unique service, allowing people to signup to monthly memberships and ask for legal advice from real lawyers at a relatively inexpensive cost.

Not everyone’s happy with what they’re receiving though, and if that sounds like you, follow the steps you see above and you’ll be able to cancel today.
