OKLAHOMA CITY--(BUSINESS WIRE)--LegalShield, one of North America’s leading providers of affordable legal plans and the IDShield identity theft solution for individuals, families and small businesses, is holding its annual We Are LegalShield Convention this week at the Cox Convention Center in Oklahoma City. At this year’s event, LegalShield’s experienced, new and aspiring Independent Sales Associates from all 50 states and Canada have come together to engage with motivating speakers, get specialized professional development training and benefit from rare networking opportunities.
LegalShield has a network of dedicated provider law firms that employ over 1,000 attorneys with an average of 22 years experience. In 2017 alone, providers received 1,833,905 requests for services, thus saving or recovering for LegalShield members approximately $33 million.
Today, Keri Norris, Senior Vice President of Regulatory Compliance and Chief Legal Officer, and Lori Owens, Senior Director Provider Services, honored law firms and attorneys with awards for superior performance and customer service. LegalShield and its provider law firms have the industry’s highest standard of service and satisfaction as the only legal services provider that holds its firms and attorneys directly accountable through member surveys, ratings and feedback. After every interaction with a LegalShield lawyer, members are asked to rate their experience, which generates a Net Promoter Score (NPS). The average NPS for LegalShield is 56, putting the company on par with brands like Samsung, TurboTax and Apple iPad/iPhone.
“Dedicated and client-focused law firms are the bedrock to our mission of providing affordable and equal access to legal services for all,” said Bell. “With over 1,000 provider attorneys in 50 states and four Canadian provinces, LegalShield is able to provide legal protection to 1,751,456 members, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year when a member's rights, freedoms or liberties are threatened.”
