The AttorneyShield® Program

  • Consent-to-Settle benefit has no "hammer clause," so you have the greatest level of control over settlement.

  • Broad Definition of Insured means persons insured under this policy include past and present firm lawyers, of-counsels, independent contractors, and any lawyer who has retired from the firm.

  • Professional Legal Services covered include arbitrator, mediator, real-estate title agent, notary public, member, director or officer of any Bar Association, or as an author, publisher or presenter of legal research papers or materials.

  • $50,000 in Claims Expenses provided outside the Limits of Liability.

  • Supplementary Payments includes reimbursement up to $750 per day (up to $15,000 aggregate) for loss of earnings related to time away from practice. Up to $15,000 is available for defense expenses incurred in the investigation or defense of a proceeding before a State Bar or peer-review committee.

  • Unlimited Extended Reporting of covered claims is available at no additional charge and without an age requirement for lawyers permanently retiring from the practice of law. To qualify for this benefit, the firm must maintain coverage with the company for at least three consecutive years.

  • Extended Reporting Endorsement provided upon death or total and permanent disability of an insured at no additional charge.

  • An abatement of the deductible is provided in increments of $2,500, up to a maximum of $10,000, for each year of continuous coverage with AttorneyShield.
