ADA, Okla.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–LegalShield, one of North America’s leading providers of affordable
legal plans and the IDShield identity theft solution for individuals,
families and small businesses, announced that two of the company’s
prominent provider attorneys have been elected to the Group Legal
Services Association (GLSA) Board of Directors for a three-year term.

Sarah G. Kieny is the managing partner in the law firm of Riggs, Abney,
Neal, Turpen, Orbison & Lewis in Denver and has been with the firm since
1997. She manages 30 lawyers and in addition handles a substantial
traffic ticket case load, spearheading the delivery of LegalShield
traffic law benefits for Colorado members. She is a preferred referral
attorney for LegalShield regarding traffic matters and also assists
members with Commercial Drivers Legal Plans. She recently led a
presentation at the GLSA Conference in April concerning the importance
of having a practice related to traffic tickets.

Kieny supervises more than 20 attorneys and staff members in day-to-day
operations for LegalShield, and she serves as the main contact for
members who call the firm’s emergency access line after hours. Sarah is
also passionate about access to justice for all and using technology to
remove the barriers to affordable legal services. She coordinates
quarterly “Law Day” initiatives, bringing volunteer attorneys to local
schools and community centers for an evening to meet with community
members. Sarah is an active LegalShield ambassador at conferences and
seminars across the country.

Benjamin Farrow is a shareholder in The Anderson Law Firm in Montgomery,
AL. His areas of practice include collections, business and commercial
law, car accident, federal trial practice, mediation, personal injury
and litigation. He is licensed in Louisiana, Alabama and Mississippi and
maintains an active docket in all three states. Ben is the supervising
attorney for LegalShield at his firm, and actively engages with company
associates as well as other provider attorneys. He leads estate planning
webinars for members and most recently moderated a presentation at the
GLSA Conference about social media ethics for lawyers, “Legal Ethics:
Implications and other issues for lawyers managing their own on-line
brand.”

“On behalf of LegalShield, we’re delighted to have two representatives
on the GLSA board,” said Keri Norris, senior vice president of
regulatory affairs and chief legal counsel. “Sarah and Ben are both
excellent attorneys, and their success is outweighed only by their
compassion and dedication to advancing access to justice for all. We are
proud to work alongside all of the hard-working attorneys in our
provider network of law firms in all 50 states and four provinces in
Canada.”
