When some corporate forms are available on the internet, why should I hire a lawyer to incorporate my business?
Although the simple forms available from the Secretary of State's office may be sufficient for simple filings of Articles of Incorporation, the forms do not include Bylaws, Stock Purchase Contracts, Organizational Minutes, and other documents necessary for proper incorporation of a business. In addition, the forms do not include an Operating Agreement for a limited liability company. If a company has more than one shareholder, it is frequently advisable to execute a binding contract between the shareholders regarding transfer of ownership in the company and to govern events at a shareholder's death.
What is a limited liability company?
A limited liability company is a type of business entity whereby the owners of the company enjoy the liability protections of a corporation with the taxation effects of a partnership.
Is a Last Will and Testament really necessary?
If an individual dies without a properly drafted Will, then state law generally determines who will receive assets after death. Property may not pass automatically to a surviving spouse under these laws. Therefore, a Last Will and Testament is a good idea in almost every situation.
Do you offer free consultation?
Although we usually do not offer free consultations, we do provide consultation fees rather than billing at an hourly rate on some matters. These fees are dependent upon the type of matter.
What are your fees?
Fees depend upon the type of matter involved. The majority of matters are conducted on an hourly basis. Hourly rates vary depending on which attorney you use. Some basic legal services (such as estate planning, basic incorporations, and business organizations) may be accomplished with a flat fee. Some cases where the client is seeking money damages may be taken on a contingency fee basis pursuant to a written agreement between the attorney and client.
