I signed up for a LegalShield membership and have reached a point where I need to hire a professional attorney to represent me when I go to court. I see that there are independent associates that work with LegalShield. Are they the same thing as attorneys? Can they represent me when I go to court? I want to hire someone that I can trust and don’t know how to find the right attorney to represent me. Is turning to the associates with LegalShield the best option to choose? Do I have to pay more money for their services or is it covered by my LegalShield membership?
