Whitestone Law

Your business deserves to be fully protected

You may be asking yourself, Why do I need a lawyer when I can use an online legal service to set up my business?  They’re cheap, they’re fast.  What’s the problem? Turning to an online legal service to set up your business may appear perfectly safe, but think again. Imagine finding out on the eve of a merger that your business isn’t legitimate because it wasn’t formed correctly.  Or that anyone who sues your business can come after your personal property because it doesn’t have limited liability protection.

When you turn to a dot-com, discount legal service, you’re using cookie-cutter documents that don’t necessarily apply to your specific business.  And that can mean leaving yourself open to fines, costly legal fixes, or a lawsuit. Just as you wouldn’t expect the minimum car insurance to protect you from all possible scenarios (say, hitting an uninsured motorist) you can’t expect the minimum, one-size-fits-all document to give you maximum legal protection.
