Thirteen new lifetime million-dollar income earners, a record number of ring earners, a man who has personally generated more than 33,000 LegalShield memberships, and the Platinum World Council – a group of the company’s top performers heading to Rio de Janeiro for the Olympics – were among those honored at LegalShield’s annual international associate conference, OklaHOME, this past weekend.
Yesterday, LegalShield concluded its annual convention at the Cox Convention Center in Oklahoma City. The convention brought together 10,000 LegalShield associates from across North America to celebrate another successful year for the company and learn about upcoming products and opportunities. The convention also served as an opportunity to recognize the hard work and successes of associates during the past year. This year, more than 600 associates were honored with awards or acknowledgements at the convention.
“We champion entrepreneurs. We help launch businesses. Our associates are the key to our success,” said Jeff Bell, CEO of LegalShield. “We are thrilled that our membership has grown by 33 percent for 2015 and the commissions we’ve paid to our field is approaching $100 million in the last 12 months.”
LegalShield associates were honored in 15 different categories, as detailed below.
Platinum World: Platinum World is an elite acknowledgement for Platinum Council members —associates who have achieved Platinum Executive Director Level for at least 12 more consecutive months. In addition, the council also provides input and ideas to the company to help support the field and advance the company.

This year, 34 associates were honored with a new LegalShield ring for their accomplishments. In addition, 50 more associates were awarded with $50,000 rings as part of an all-new 12 ring program.
