The AOR Difference

Unlike most self-defense plans on the market, the Attorneys On Retainer Program is NOT backed by any insurance company. The Attorneys On Retainer Program is an attorney-client fee option with the Attorneys For Freedom Law Firm. This means we are not required to adhere to the same restrictions and limitations that other insurance-backed programs must follow. The Attorneys On Retainer Program is not an insurance plan – it is an attorney/client fee agreement.

Many of these companies that offer concealed carry insurance say they can provide significant financial assistance in the aftermath of a self-defense shooting. However, because they are backed by insurance companies, they will likely have EXCLUSIONS in their policies that allow them to DENY coverage.
