    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.
