Even though the accident was not his fault, the staggering costs of legal protection nearly destroyed him financially. This traumatic experience planted the seeds of a vision that would eventually become Pre-Paid Legal Services Inc., the revolutionary network marketing company that is making justice affordable to all through an ingenious legal insurance plan.In The Pre-Paid Legal Story, Stonecipher gives readers the inside account of his company's dramatic beginnings and incredible growth. He shows how Pre-Paid Legal is changing not only our system of justice but also the lives of thousands of people who have discovered a unique business opportunity. In addition, readers will learn how the company gives average citizens access to top lawyers for as little as $15 a month, is positioning itself for rapid growth, and attracts entrepreneurs from lucrative professions.
