The pricing for our flat-rate legal services at L4SB are priced at, or very close to, the pricing one might find at non-legal competitors. The pricing is about the same, is the service about the same?
Our Team consists of the very best professionals: Licensed attorneys, certified paralegals and outstanding legal assistants. This is critical to ensure the people you work with understand the long-term issues associated with forming, managing, running or dismantling a company. You care about liability protection, privacy and minimizing long-term expenses associated with legal issues, and only trained professionals a law firm provides has such professionals at its disposal.
Legal Professionals versus the Competition
Our non-legal competitors can have just about anyone work on your matters, even someone without any legal training or college education!
Only attorneys are required to carry insurance and hold themselves accountable to a regulatory agency. If an attorney makes a mistake, a client can hold the attorney (and law firm) accountable to that mistake, by law. Only attorneys are trained (and required to maintain yearly ongoing continuing education) to know what the law is, and are the only individuals entitled to provide legal advice of any kind whatsoever. No one, other than attorneys, may offer legal advice — not even state officials.
Did you know that a lawyer has as much education as a medical doctor?
Attorneys are college educated individuals, who have taken at least three (3) years of graduate education (on top of their 4-5 years of college), and have passed an arduous exam in the state(s) they practice law in. They are accountable to their state’s bar, and if they commit malpractice or violate their professional rules of conduct, they can be held accountable in the eyes of the law. In fact, an attorney can be sanctioned, disbarred, fined or jailed for a variety of offenses that just about anyone else would laugh off.

All Filing Services by L4SB are Performed by Attorneys or Paralegals
At L4SB, filing services are fulfilled by attorneys, paralegals or legal assistants (the last two under the supervision of attorneys). This is only possible because L4SB is a law firm.
The choice is clear: who do you want to help you with your important legal documents? For about the same price, an attorney or someone else not an attorney?
