Episode Notes

Most lawyers are driven to the practice of law by their desire to help people, but approximately 80% of people can’t afford typical legal fees. LegalShield works to close that gap through their network–connecting people with legal professionals at an affordable cost. In this On The Road report, host Keri Norris talks to Jeff Bell and Mike Turpen about the future of legal services and how LegalShield is working to close the justice gap. They discuss their future goals for developing high-touch/high-tech legal services and explain how the LegalShield app allows members to gain a better understanding of their legal matters for greater confidence when talking to a lawyer. Jeff and Mike also stress the importance of encouraging schedule flexibility in law firms so clients can connect with a lawyer whenever and wherever they need help.

Jeff Bell is CEO of LegalShield.

Michael Turpen was a LegalShield provider attorney for 30 years and is a partner in the law firm of Riggs, Abney, Neal, Turpen, Orbison & Lewis.
