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.


Frequently Asked Questions

No. We are extremely grateful for the heroic work of HSLDA and others in securing and safeguarding the right to home educate. However, HSLDA membership benefits do not extend to court actions resulting from non-home schooling matters. Heritage Defense complements the work of HSLDA by covering all other reasons why a family might have a social worker show up on their doorstep (such as medical decisions, child discipline, and any other false report of abuse or neglect).

Listen to our radio interview with Kevin Swanson about handling medical situations.

      When I consider the question 'Is there a better way that I could spend $145 [to renew] 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 Bradley and his diligence in handling our case. Knowing that my $145 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.

      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.


Does Heritage Defense compete with HSLDA?

Do you have attorneys in my state?

Yes. Although our staff attorneys are based in Texas, we have contract attorneys in all 50 states ready to assist us in defending our members.

How much does it cost?

The first year of membership is $195 or $19 a month (renewals are even less).

Without a good attorney, small problems can quickly escalate into big problems. Heritage Defense gives you quick and easy access to our attorneys so you know exactly what to do when your parental rights are threatened. Your children are gifts from God, and we want to help you protect them.
