What Our Members Say

Heritage Defense has been an incredible blessing to our family. In the midst of a challenging ordeal with CPS, Heritage Defense served as a God-honoring voice of reason, wisdom, and encouragement. Each time we called, whether during the day or after-hours, we immediately spoke with an attorney who shared care and compassion toward our situation. Our attorney at Heritage Defense helped us to understand our rights, and most importantly helped to protect our children from the undue duress of the false accusations that came upon our family. He followed up and interacted with CPS as promised each step of the way. The ultimate result was very positive for our family. We praise God for the counsel and action of Heritage Defense. If you are not a part of Heritage Defense, I highly recommend that you join.

When a parent has a sick child nothing is more important than getting the best possible care. I assumed we and the hospital had the same goal for our daughter, but when it became apparent that they considered us an impediment, Heritage Defense... was a steady guide through a stressful time.

When I consider the question 'Is there a better way that I could spend what I spent for my membership dues right now?', the answer quickly comes when I remember the stress that our family was under and the relief that came in the form of the Heritage Defense attorney and his diligence in handling our case. Knowing that my membership contribution is not only protection for my family, but is helping meet the needs of other families, going through what we did not so long ago, is a comforting thought.

No. While Heritage Defense is not affiliated with or endorsed by HSLDA, we are extremely grateful for the heroic work of HSLDA and others in securing and safeguarding the right to homeschool and helping families navigate the homeschooling process. However, for child protective services (CPS) matters related to medical decisions, child discipline, and other non-homeschooling issues, HSLDA does not commit to assisting beyond initial contacts with CPS. Heritage Defense covers even non-homeschooling CPS matters for the whole case, including representation in court.

Yes. Issues with social services can arise at all ages. As long as your children who are “school-age” are educated at home, you can still join.

Yes. In addition to our staff attorneys, we have contact attorneys in all 50 states and D.C. to assist us in defending our members.

No. We handle social services cases, but if you are wrongfully accused and need a criminal defense attorney, we will help you find and work with one.

No. Our terms and conditions state, “We reserve the right to decline representation if, in our sole and absolute discretion, we believe that actual abuse, neglect, or other misconduct has occurred or is occurring, or that a conflict of interest exists. We condemn and will not defend child abuse.”

Membership is currently $18 a month (or $175 a year)
