Our Practice vs DIY:

How fast will you be "up and running"?

 While online services like LegalZoom can be fast because they streamline the process, they do not offer personalized guidance. An experienced business attorney can expedite matters by focusing on your specific situation and avoiding common pitfalls that could delay the process. They can also swiftly handle unexpected issues or complications that arise, which a DIY service may not be equipped to handle.

With our process, you will typically have what you need to open your business bank account within 5-7 business days as the standard. We’ll complete the custom corporate drafts during the next 7-10 days.  With most DIY companies, that can be 20-30 days, unless you opt to pay the rush fees.  Then you’ll get your fill-in-the-blank templates from them within 10-14 days, on average.

What about the quality of service?

For obvious reasons, the quality of service from a business attorney is typically higher than that of a DIY service. We provide tailored advice based on the specific circumstances and needs of your business, along with completely custom documents as part of your entity strategy, whereas online services offer more generalized services with fill-in-the-blank templates.

Our office will make sure all of your legal documents are correctly prepared, filed, and in compliance with relevant industry laws, potentially preventing legal issues down the line.

Aren't you more expensive?

While our office might have a higher upfront cost compared to a DIY service, we provide value in the long run by mitigating risk and avoiding potential costly mistakes that many DIY services simply don’t address.

We’ll guide you in choosing the most appropriate business entity that could save you in tax liabilities and other costs in the future. Plus, dealing with legal issues that arise from mistakes made during formation can be significantly more expensive than hiring an attorney from the start, especially if you are in one of the 20+ industries that are required to be formed as a “Professional Corporation” in California.

How do we know? We’ve routinely come across individuals that have told us going the DIY route only saved them a couple of $100, by the time they finished with all the upsells; before they now have to pay more to fix the issues those DIY services created. 

The importance of ongoing legal relationships?

An attorney-client relationship is valuable! Having a business attorney means you have a professional who understands your business’s specifics and can provide ongoing advice and services as your business grows. They are a phone call away when you have legal questions or issues, which an online service cannot offer. This personal relationship also means your attorney is invested in your success and can often provide more proactive and preventative advice, while an online service is more transactional and reactive!

If you want to be reactive in your business, an online service is absolutely the way to go.  If you want more peace of mind and prevent minor disputes before they become big issues, a true relationship is what you need.

What types of business do you work with?

The range of our clients is pretty wide, but we often find ourselves working most often with those in the services industries, including:

  • Health & Wellness;
  • Coaches & Consultants;
  • Restaurants & Bars;
  • Licensed Professionals (Attorneys, MFTs, LCSWs, Doctors, etc);
  • Real Estate Investors; and
  • Trades/Contractors.

“…I felt he had given me the resources to grow and develop professionally…

You will not be disappointed! I am happy that I was referred to Matt; it was easy to understand what needed to be done, and great he was at helping me and supporting me with starting the business! I felt he had given me the resources to grow and develop professionally.
