ADA, Okla., Oct. 25 /CNW/ -- A national media campaign launched less than
a month ago by Pre-Paid Legal Services, Inc. (NYSE: PPD) continues to
introduce millions of North Americans to the company's legal services plans,
including the popular Identity Theft Shield.

program "Justice for All: Accessing the Promise" which initially appeared on
Court TV on Sept. 29. The second in a series of the Justice For All, the
national T.V. campaign will appear on Court TV on October 27 at 11 a.m. ET/PT.

North America," reported Pre-Paid Legal Services Chairman and CEO Harland

the program on Court TV. The response has been tremendous from people
wanting to know more about our services and asking how they can access quality
legal services at a price they can afford."
As a result of the strong public response to the program, new
opportunities across North America are available for individuals who want to
earn extra income. Opportunities also exist for those who wish to earn a
substantial income on a full-time basis.
"People who called us after viewing the show say they were pleased to
discover they can have an attorney to help them with their every day life
events legal needs at such an affordable price. They are impressed with the
scope and depth of the services we offer. They also understand the importance
of having access to an attorney, but have been concerned in the past about
cost." Stonecipher said.

of individuals to join the "Justice for All" national campaign.
