If you carry a firearm for self-defense, then you already understand that bad things can happen, and the best defense can be a proactive one. Self-defense incidents do not end when the police arrive, though; in fact, the physical fight for your life may just be the beginning. As recent events have shown, a fully justified use of force may be prosecuted, requiring long court proceedings and expensive attorneys’ fees that can financially crush the average person, even if they are exonerated in the end.

If you are not prepared for some of the legal and financial aftermath of a self-defense encounter, join U.S. LawShield® today and secure the best Legal Defense for Self Defense® in the country. You shouldn’t have to go bankrupt paying your attorneys’ fees to prove your innocence.
