Houston, TX – Texas & U.S. Law Shield, the nation’s leading firearms legal defense plan, covers more than 200,000 active members and has recently opened membership in its 12th state.
“Right now, we have just over 206,000 active Texas & U.S. Law Shield members all across the United States who are enjoying the benefits of our legal protection services, education, and training,” said Kirk W. Evans, President of Texas & U.S. Law Shield. “We’re deeply gratified that gun owners of all descriptions trust us to provide them immediate legal protection after they have used a firearm or any other legal weapon in self-defense.”
Unlike other programs, which don’t reimburse an individual until he or she has borne thousands or tens of thousands of dollars in upfront legal costs, Law Shield members can call an emergency hotline number and speak with an experienced gun-law attorney right at the scene of an incident. Members pay no additional fees beyond their monthly or annual membership charges.
Evans said, “Independent Program Attorneys across the country answer the program phones themselves 24/7/365 — not a switchboard operator or referral service. If you are unfortunate enough to be involved in a self-defense shooting in your home or in a public setting, there’s a certain peace-of-mind that comes with a program lawyer immediately picking up the phone when you’re faced with extreme stress.”
There are no restrictions on the hours Independent Program Attorneys will spend resolving your case, Evans said, and there’s no financial cap, unlike some other programs. “Members don’t have to pay any additional fees for their legal representation in criminal or civil matters, and we cover appeals for no additional charge as well,” he said.
Texas & U.S. Law Shield are based in Texas, and the companies currently offer memberships in Arkansas, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Kansas, Missouri, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, and Virginia. Evans said he hopes to open in Tennessee and South Carolina shortly, as well.
Also, Members can elect to carry Multi-State coverage for a nominal fee which protects them in all 50 states and Washington, D.C., as well as bail bond and expert witness coverage, minor children coverage, and hunting coverage.
Texas & U.S. Law Shield members receive access to a wealth of industry information and legal protection through an extensive network of seminars, workshops, books, newsletters, social media, and mainstream radio and television interviews. Also, members have non-emergency access to Firearms Program Attorneys to answer any questions about their gun rights or other self-defense issues — all for as little as $10.95 a month.
Interviews with company principals at Texas & U.S. Law Shield are available on request. Legal-use-of-force interviews can be coordinated with Independent Program Attorneys in each state on request.
