Will? Identity Theft? What To Do?

I have a fantastic product review that I want to tell you about!!  Mike and I have had this Pre-Paid Legal membership for at least 6 years, and it has paid off so much for us.  I am so happy about the piece of mind it continues to give me!! Here are a couple recent stories for you of how much it has helped me.

Back in November I had just taken my son on a bowling trip with his school.  When we drove to pick up my other kids afterwards, we were pulled over for speeding.  It was one of those moments you don't even realize you were speeding, and you got caught!  It all happened so fast as I turned the corner, and must have sped up too fast.  Well I got caught, and I was so ticked off about it.  This all happened in a school zone.  I don't know if it is the same for all of you out there, but here, we get a triple fine for it being a school zone.  Complete bummer!!!  I didn't have to money to pay $180.00 for a stupid ticket.  And I didn't want the extra points on my ticket.  So I have been super lucky to be a Pre-Paid Legal Member.  So I called my Law Firm and asked for advice and help.  They were WONDERFUL!!  They had me plead not guilty, and then I didn't have to do anything else.  An attorney went to court for me (I was home with my kiddos!), and he asked for the judge to go easy on me or what ever it is they say.  I ended up only having to pay the cost of a regular speeding ticket of $60.00 and I didn't have any points to mess up my record.  AMAZING!  I was so thrilled to have this all go so well.

About a month, maybe 2 months ago, I had a legal question about one of my sewing patterns.  I was unsure what to do, so what did I do?!  I called my providing Law Firm again!  They sat on the phone with me through a couple phone calls, took some emails from me, and answered every question I had.  I honestly don't know how much this would have cost if I were to have called any other attorney out there?  But for my piece of mind this was FABULOUS!  I am at ease and LOVE it!

To top off my wonderful mood with all of the membership that I have, I also got a will for free in the cost of my membership!!  How nice is that.   I don't have to worry about the state or someone taking my kids from my family if both Mike and I die.  How comforting.

I felt like I should tell you all about this.  Some of you may have heard of it before, and some of you probably have no idea what I am talking about.  But I would really encourage you all to look into it for yourselves.  I honestly am loving my piece of mind.  We have used our membership so many times, I would bore you with all of them.

This membership also helps cover us in Identity Theft.  I had my purse stolen 4 years ago, and panicked.  Luckily I have this protection to help me make sure no one has ever taken my identity!!  How WONDERFUL!!!

I could keep going on about how helpful this has been for me, but I would hope that you would look into it for yourselves.  If anything, for the WILLGo to this link and check this out for yourselves!!  My husband is who you would contact if you have any questions!  He is also looking for people to work with who are willing to work hard!
