 Frequently Asked Questions

  1. This seems expensive.  Rocketlawyer.com, legalzoom.com and other online business legal providers charge only a fraction of these prices, why would I go with a local attorney instead of just using the canned forms provided by these online DIY legal providers?

Answer: Working with a local, Louisiana lawyer has a number of premium benefits that you simply won't get if you DIY your way through the legal issues related to forming and operating your business.  Having a local lawyer on your team gives you and your business credibility in the community, with your vendors, suppliers, and clients.  It helps in all aspects of negotiations when your counterpart is aware that you are receiving legal counsel and advice.  It decreases the likelihood of others attempting to take advantage of you. When we work with you and your company, we are always on the lookout for legal issues related to your specific business and will alert you of anything we know would benefit you and your company.  The value of a business attorney is in the personalized advice and counsel that the attorney brings to you and your business.  Customized legal advice will lead to legal leverage.  Canned legal advice and DIY filings do not.  More often than not they are a legal liability that will be discovered on down the road.
