ADA, Okla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--LegalShield, one of North America’s leading providers of affordable legal plans and identity theft solutions for individuals, families and small businesses, hosted a meet-and-greet event on Wednesday, June 14, 2017, at the company’s headquarters to kick off the celebration of its 45th year of business. In doing so, LegalShield once again brought the community together and shared its vision for success and commitment to doing business in Oklahoma.
“We are absolutely honored today to host this event that celebrates LegalShield’s partnership with an outstanding leader in Oklahoma, Attorney General Mike Hunter,” said Jeff Bell, LegalShield’s CEO. “At LegalShield, we are vigilant in our efforts to help citizens across North America achieve equal justice under the law and we’re thrilled that General Hunter has the same vision.”
LegalShield honored Oklahoma Attorney General Mike Hunter, who serves as the state’s chief legal enforcement officer and as such, works relentlessly to protect consumers from fraud. Hunter reaffirmed his pledge to vigorously defend customers’ rights and encourage small business growth.
“Harland C. Stonecipher was a true visionary,” said Hunter. “It’s amazing to see how this company started and where Jeff has taken it. What you’re selling is peace of mind. Being in business 45 years doesn’t happen by accident. It takes hard work, courage, sacrifice and dedication. Those are the things that really embody the spirit of the LegalShield organization. Consumer protection is something I’ve decided to take very seriously. Whether criminals try to defraud consumers over the internet or in person, we will act swiftly to achieve justice. This is a great company and I’m honored to be a part of your celebration.”
Former Senator Susan Paddack, former Attorney General Mike Turpen and Chickasaw Secretary of Commerce Bill G. Lance, Jr., were among guests who participated in the day’s festivities.
