View Full Version : Legal Zoom

Just curious...has anybody here used LegalZoom to file dba's and what not? I just finished filling out a dba application but I haven't filed yet. I've never heard anything bad about them. It's a very simple process online. They lay everything out nice and simple. Just wondering if anybody has anything to say about them.

You don't need an attorney to set up as a sole proprietorship. Just go down to your town hall or county government office and fill the form out there. Save yourself a few bucks.

I'm 19, I've been in business 0 years, but I've mowed for a few neighbors and relatives. I consider myself no authority of lawn maintnence, however, I do the best I can and whoever I cut for is always happy because I make it look nice.

I'm not sure what in my post led you to believe that I was a lowballer.

Thanks for the undue compliment.

That sounds like a very reasonable price.

I used them for a will. Very simple to use, inexpensive. I would recommend them.

I used them for a small claim. A lady owed 500 for a prunning job. They ent everything I needed for 69 bucks. I never got the money but they did a good job with the paper work.

I think they are better for more complex stuff like wills, trusts, etc... I dont think I would use them for DBAs or small claims.

Where would you folks recommend I get customer and sub contracts? Would it be best to go to an attorney for documents like that? I'm thinking a local attorney would know the local laws better, and that the contract may hold up better in the local courts. Or maybe it's not that big of a deal?

I quoted a price to set up a LLC with a lawyer and it was about $700 more expensive than Legalzoom. Legalzoom was cheap and easy to use and my favorite part of going with legalzoom that I didn't have to go through all that government red tape bull$h1t. I think they got a link now on Lawnsite in the sponsor section on the right side of the page. I endorse em!!
