You’ve seen their commercials (featuring OJ Simpson’s attorney), but does that really mean LegalZoom is the best choice for starting your small business? Think of it this way: is the huge chain Italian restaurant franchise better than the tiny Italian bistro in your neighborhood–where every dish is prepared by real Italians–just because they advertise on television? We’ll let you decide, but we feel pretty confident that we can do better than the big guys when it comes to starting your company.
First of all, we understand that going into business for yourself can be complicated and even scary. We’re a real small business ourselves, so we’ve been there before. LegalZoom is a huge warehouse of legal services (Wills, Divorces, Bankruptcies, etc.) with only a fraction devoted to small business. Our incorporation and LLC formation service was designed specifically to meet the needs of small business owners.
Now let’s talk about cost. Our basic package starts at just $79 plus your state fee. That’s a lot easier on your wallet than their $149 basic package (as of this date of publication), and ours includes more. Do a side-by-side comparison of what you get with us versus what you get with LegalZoom. Running a business can be expensive. Starting a business doesn’t have to be.
We believe in honesty and won’t hit you with hidden fees or excessive charges, ever. For example, we charge only $45 to obtain your Federal tax ID. LegalZoom will charge you $79.
Personalized service is a benchmark of what we do. During business hours, you will always reach a live person or a quick call back (or response to your email), usually within ten minutes. Every member of our client services team can access your account and tell you the status of your order. We run a small, casual shop where everybody knows each other. LegalZoom, on the other hand, has more than six hundred employees.
Finally, just do some research: search for “Legalzoom complaints” on Google. Do the same for us and see the difference. As a LegalZoom alternative, we offer some of the lowest prices in the industry, fast turnaround and a 100% satisfaction guarantee.
