How We Got Here

In 1969, our founder, Harland Stonecipher, had an epiphany. He found himself financially unprepared for the legal costs he incurred from an accident, even though it wasn’t his fault. From that day forward, he was determined to make sure everyone had affordable access to legal care—no matter how traumatic or trivial the situation. Thus, LegalShield was born. Today, IDShield, a division of LegalShield, continues that mission by providing identity theft protection to as many people as possible, with the most knowledgeable identity theft protection specialists in the industry.
