Expert Review

What kind of experience will you have with LegalZoom.com?

(If you want to skip my review, Click Here to read LegalZoom Customer Reviews Now)

Chances are, if you're reading this, that you are thinking about using LegalZoom.com soon. And the most pressing question you probably have is this: Can I trust LegalZoom? Are they good? Are they reputable?

Well, I definitely have an opinion on that!

So, to tell you about the kind of experience YOU can expect with Legal Zoom, let me first tell you about my own LegalZoom experience.

I (personally) have formed several incorporations through Legal Zoom. Plus, my mother, and my mother-in-law, and my uncle, have all created their Wills through LegalZoom.

I've been running this review site for many years, so you could say I am the foremost expert on LegalZoom.com and their service.

With that being said... I recommend Legal Zoom without hesitation to all of my friends and family.

LegalZoom is my number one online legal choice - hands down - no competition.

Case in point:

The biggest attorney I know charges his customers $1,500 for a corporation. Then he goes to Legal Zoom and fills out the forms for $129. Legal Zoom sends him the package, and he puts his letterhead in it, and forwards it to the customer. He uses LegalZoom because they're reliable, and they present a professional package.

LegalZoom periodically sends me updates for this list, so it's always changing:

  • They have a team of 51 people that are dedicated to customer service, which is open from 7:00am to 6:00pm
  • They have over 250 people processing paperwork for their customers
  • They have formed over 150,000 Incorporations and LLC's
  • They claim to do more Last Will and Testament documents than anyone else in the world
  • In one month, Legal Zoom registers more trademarks than the next largest competitor does in a whole year!!
  • They're constantly rolling out new legal products like Real Estate Leases, Non-Profit Incorporations, and Design Patents

 PAINLESS!, 5/8/2012 9:24:26 AM
Reviewer: Mary Sue Shaw from Woodbridge, VA, USA
I recently completed my Last Will and Testament, Health Care Directive, and Durable Power of Attorney. I'd tried several times to use some of the other Will preparation websites, but most of them used set templates that did not fit my information. The LegalZoom questionnaire was much easier to follow. The prices were very reasonable. I was amazed at how quickly the documents were sent back to me. I gave the LegalZoom information brochures to several people in my office and one to the Notary Public. I will definitely recommend this website to other people.

 Great service!, 10/18/2011 12:00:22 PM
Reviewer: David Chesanow from Olympia, WA
When I applied for a trademark for my business, LegalZoom eliminated the time, hassle and added expense involved in hiring a lawyer just to file my paperwork. LegalZoom walked me through the legal process step by step. They make it easy and economical, and the LegalZoom staff who reviewed my application for me were friendly, knowledgeable, prompt and efficient. My trademark was approved without a hitch. LegalZoom is a great service!

 The process was a great experience, 9/20/2011
Reviewer: Deborah B from Lawrenceville, GA
The application process was a great experience. The system was user friendly, and provided added information as you prepared your app. The cost was reasonable. However, the process takes about 20 - 30 days, and the cost to expedite is outrageous! If you need your company up and running yesterday...you better have applied for it last month...the state takes their sweet time.

Reviewer: Stephen H. from Shalimar, FL
The process was easy to follow and complete. The response was great. The quality was great. Please allow an opt-out for the email solicitation following our contact with LegalZoom. So far, I am receiving at least one piece of mail a day from vendors soliciting services for the company I worked with on LegalZoom. I paid LegalZoom for services, not to be added to everyone else's mailing list.

We are very satisfied with our whole package and process. All questions were answered and we were informed about how the state was backed up with paperwork which slowed our paperwork down. We were kept up to date on our progress. LegalZoom is a very professional company and we appreciate their expert employees/knowledge in knowing what to file and with whom. We will be doing all of our future business with LegalZoom and will tell everyone who will listen of our great experience with this company. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!

When I entered my personal information into the categories for these two legal documents I was very surprised at how easy it was to do. I was relieved that it didnt COST me an arm and a leg!

Reviewer: Jan Lunday from Temecula, CA USA
My husband and I have had a prepaid legal plan for a year and finally decided it was time to make our wills. When we called them, they told us it would cost $1,100 or $1,200 because we needed a Living Trust.

We went to LegalZoom.com and did it for less than half. We canceled the prepaid legal plan.

 They gave me a full refund, no questions asked!, 8/14/2009 2:56:39 AM
Reviewer: Anonymous from Iowa
After receiving our living trust in the mail and after seeking some legal counsel about how to go about some of the aspects of it.... we decided that it actually didn't make much sense for us to have a living trust after all. I sent them an e-mail about a possible refund for the amount we had paid to have them do a deed transfer for our house (I thought at least I could get this back since they hadn't actually started this portion of it for us yet).... at that time, and much to my surprise they offered me a full refund for the entire document! All I needed to do was mail it back to them. Within a week my credit card was refunded for the FULL amount.

I absolutely WILL use them again!

 LegalZoom's Living Trust worked perfectly, 6/9/2009 5:02:40 PM
Reviewer: Debbie K. from Bellevue, WA
Last year, my brother was diagnosed with cancer. Unfortunately, the prognosis wasn't good by the time it was discovered, it was already at an advanced stage (pancreatic cancer). We scrambled to get a Living Trust together, since he wasn't married and had no children. I wanted to use an attorney, but my brother was in no mood to speak to a stranger about his finances and these types of delicate estate planning issues. So instead, I asked him what he wanted to do with his house and brokerage account (his main assets). Based on a friend's recommendation, I went to LegalZoom for a Living Trust and a Power of Attorney for health care (which they call a Living Will).

It was generally easy to use, and they had a guide that I read before I completed the questionnaire. After they sent the documents to me by mail, I still had to complete another form for the house, and then they had to send the deed for my brother to sign, but otherwise the process was straight-forward and private. I contacted the brokerage to see what I needed to do to transfer the account, and simply had to open a new account in the name of the trust and then transfer the assets into the new account. A little tedious, but not that difficult. My brother didn't have a lot of other assets, but I could see how this could become a hassle if he had numerous accounts and investments.

This spring, the cancer spread and my brother lost his battle. I was named as the trust administrator, so I contacted a local attorney for help. It still cost some money for the attorney's help, but everything worked out as planned. And the attorney said it was MUCH less than he would have charged if it was a Will and had to go through probate.

Overall, I was very pleased with LegalZoom. If you don't mind doing some of the work yourself, in terms of changing the names on the accounts and such, I'd would recommend them without reservations.

 Legal Zoom saved my neck..., 2/5/2009 9:08:44 AM
Reviewer: Linda H. from Scottsdale, AZ
I know I'm going to sound like they're paying me, but I love this company. They've saved my neck on more than one occasion. I got a will in 24 hours when my husband and I were about to take a trip to Barcelona and realized that if the plane were to go down my kids would be in limbo. I told my sister to use them for a divorce and it was easy as pie. My husband and I used them to set up a real estate LLC and I've copyrighted a book of poems through them. I only had one problem in 6 years of working with them and when I called to complain they discounted my order and put in a rush. Why anyone would give a negative review is beyond me.

 Tanya went Above and Beyond, 11/24/2007 3:18:25 PM
Reviewer: Chantel from USA
I just wanted to say that I had a really surprising experience with Legal Zoom. What was almost a disaster was turned around by a customer representative named Tanya. When I submitted my LLc paperwork, I made a mistake in adding the shares allocated to an investor in the company. It was several days before I caught it. When I called Legal Zoom, Tanya answered and told me that the paperwork had already been submitted to the state and there wasn't much that could be done now! Well, I was obviously disappointed and Tanya asked me to hold on. She personally contacted the VP of Business Services who fixed the issue himself. I don't know what they did... resubmitted the paperwork, or amended them, it doesn't really matter. What matters is that Tanya and the folks at Legal Zoom really went above and beyond.

Reviewer: Anonymous from Los Angeles, CA USA
I did my DBA through LegalZoom and honestly I thought it was taking a while to get my order. I called them and they explained what was going on. basically, i guess because they have to work with the county, they have to wait for the county to get back to them. But they were great. It took only a couple extra days after I called, they gave me a discount for any other product, and i received emails along the way telling me the status of my order.

 Created a will better than my lawyer's work, 7/11/2006 12:51:35 AM
Reviewer: Anonymous from North Hollywood, CA USA
I'm serious. I had to go back to my lawyer 4 times and it had already cost me about $900 for what I did for about $60 at legalzoom. After the forth time, I said forget it and went online. I did everything I wanted to do, they sent it to me on paper more professional than what my lawyer (it's a small thing i know, but for $900 you'd expect better than printer paper!). They gave me instructions on how to check it and sign it, the witnesses I needed to have watch me sign it, and how to make changes in the future. I'd definitely use the service again. My husband said we should have made a living trust and legalzoom offers that, too.

I formed an Incorporation with Legalzoom a couple of months ago, and I'm very happy with their service. I had an issue when one of my partners pulled their funding from the venture at the last minute, after I had submitted my paperwork. I called Legalzoom and they helped me get it all cleared up. There wasn't even a delay in getting my paperwork.

I'm a happy customer, and I'm going to recommend Legalzoom to my friends.

 Exceptional Service, 7/1/2005 1:23:23 PM
Reviewer: Jeff from New York, NY
As an attorney, I do not trust a lot of people to legal document prep, however LegalZoom absolutely shocked me with how much attention they paid to the details and how much they cared about the quality of their work. There are a lot of companies that simply do not care about the details. I have many clients who I recommed use LegalZoom, if they cannot afford my fees for a simple filing.

I am the kind of person that reviews all services from all different companies before I purchase anything. With legalzoom, I felt comfortable and safe knowing that they have done so many LLCs. Plus having lead attorneys develop the site made me feel confident about putting my order through.

 Legalzoom.com is an Outstanding Site, 7/7/2004 6:09:53 PM
Reviewer: Michael E. from Wichita, Kansas
I ordered a living trust from legalzoom.com. I received the documents in the mail today. Never having made a living trust, I needed to make a couple changes to it after looking at it. I tried to make these changes at the website but felt more comfortable speaking to someone first.

I called the toll free number and was greeted by Ms. Ives. She was understanding, courteous, and professional. After a couple brief phone calls, she advised me on how to most quickly make the needed changes to my living trust. I did as she advised. Within an hour, I received an e mail from Ms. Ives stating that she was making all the necessary corrections and would send an amended will out soon.

Ms. Ives is an asset to the organization. Her professionalism reflects well on her and her management. Legalzoom.com is an outstanding site that has made making a quality living trust easy for me.

 LegalZoom saved me time and money, 7/7/2004 6:05:22 PM
Reviewer: R.L. from Charlestown, IN
Legalzoom provided exceptional support by their team of supporters. My wife suggested I use LegalZoom, she had seen an endorsement while watching the Today Show on NBC.

At first I was skeptical about using an Internet company for legal assistance. Their e mails in response to my concerns were fast and calmed my uncertainty.

I filled out the simple online forms and LegalZoom took care of the rest. I questioned how LegalZoom provided me with all they supplied for such a small fee.

If I had gone to someone locally or tried to do it myself there would have been a lot more time and money spent. As a businessperson I needed to perform my profession and let others execute their area of expertise. The cliché of

 LegalZoom is an absolute LIFESAVER!!, 7/7/2004 6:01:11 PM
Reviewer: Anonymous from Greenwood, Indiana
July 31st of last year (2003) my mother was diagnosed with stage IV lung cancer. My mother’s health had been fine to that point. They had first thought she had pneumonia. She had been a long time smoker her entire life. When finally discovered, the cancer was very far advanced.

As my mother tried chemotherapy she was in and out of the hospital. I am a high school teacher and one day a friend and I were sitting at lunch and we thought of whether one could get a will on the Internet. My mother had very little funds but did own her house... She was very weak and in no way able to go to see a lawyer at that point.

I searched the Internet and found several places to get wills. One was as cheap as $20. However, I liked LegalZoom because they guaranteed that someone would look at the final will... The form you use makes it very easy to fill in the heirs, amounts, and even special items on the will. My mother wanted her remains specially handled. Using LegalZoom I was sure wh

Reviewer: D.P. from USA
Having recently married and recently new to Florida, my husband and I had need for legal services and knew no one, let alone any legal professionals. We were about a month away from my husband leaving the country to become a United Nations Peacekeeper in Europe. He has now been there for about 6 months and is in constant threat....

Prior to leaving we contacted your company and requested information to do a less that simple will. We had properties, holdings and needed Trust provisions in the event of an emergency. I did an application that was extremely easy to follow online. LegalZoom confirmed receipt within one hour. My husband was due to leave the country in a matter of days. Within 48 hours, the completed document was e mailed to us with explicit instructions as to signing, witnessing and notarization. We completed as directed and he left.

A couple days later.... the original forms arrived by regular mail. Meanwhile we had already been accommodated by the email tran

 Legalzoom was my best incorporation experience ever, 7/2/2004 4:30:14 PM
Reviewer: Travis from Hollywood, CA
I've incorporated several companies in several different states. Once I filled out the paperwork myself, once I used MyCorporation.com, and once I used Legalzoom.

Legalzoom was professional, fast, and cheap. I was very impressed with their customer service. I called several times to inquire about the progress of the order, and I got courteous and knowledgable support reps every time.

I loved the binder package that came with the order including the company seal. Very professional.

If I incorporate again (and chances are I will!) I'm definitely using Legalzoom.

Very quick and painless. From the comfort of my desk.

Coupons are available online.

Legal Zoom has hidden charges that are descreetly shown and backed up with percentages of who choose to accept or decline. I found this actually funny. What a great way to make money and further back it up with numbers-FANTASTIC! They must be raking it in! I want to be like Legal Zoom and rake it in too!!!!

I sat on the phone with my accountant and went through the entire website. Before I did this I talked with an attorney who put it all in laymens terms. Because I had another set of eyes to answer questions, I found it very easy to accomplish my goal of creating my LLC.

 I wish I new about LegalZoom's services before!!!, 7/18/2006 1:14:00 PM
Reviewer: Edward from Modesto, CA from Modesto, CA USA
Having just started my 4th business (hopefully a successful one), I thought I knew everything about starting a business from scratch. That was obviously not the case.

For the first 3 businesses, I formed 3 separate LLCs with the help of a local attorney. I think I paid close to $2000 for each! I thought I was getting a good deal. But I remember thinking that these LLCs were very simple, especially since all 3 LLCs were set up exactly the same.

When I started the 4th company, I heard about LegalZoom on the radio. So I decided to give them a try. I went online, completed the questionnaire, and submitted my payment. The process was very simple, and the best part was that they would send me email updates regarding the status of my LLC filing. (your company name is available, documents have been sent to the Secretary of State, your LLC has been formed, here is your filing number, your tax ID number has been obtained, etc.). All this for less than $500. I even got a company kit, with custom stock certificates, seal, and more.

When compared to the first 3 LLC formed through an attorney, I have to say Legalzoom's service was by far the best deal. I still remember calling the lawyer countless times for status checks and such....Kinda frustrating especially paying $2K for each LLC. Still wondering why he never gave me a discount(???).

Forgive me for writing on and on about LegalZoom....but I just thought people should know. From one entreprenuer to another....

One last note: I still use my lawyer for complicated matters litigation, contracts, and legal advice......but not for simple matters like setting up a simple LLC or registering a trademark. I'd go with Legalzoom. But before making any important decisions, research online, you'll be surprised what's out there. Good luck to all!!!

 Unauthorized surprise charges, 3/27/2012 11:27:45 AM
Reviewer: Anonymous from New Jersey, NJ USA
Although Legal Zoom took completed my LLC promptly, they quite promptly deducted a hidden, unauthorized charge from my account.

Because I designated them as the Registered Agent, a surprise of $159.00 was deducted from my account the same day as my agreed upon monthly installment payment. I called the 1-800 number on their website only to be placed on the hold abyss for over 1/2 hour with no live person ever picking up my call.

Mind you, when I filled out fields online for my LLC, when it came time to choose a Registered agent, nowhere in the explanation of such did it mention an additional $159.00 would be charged. Additionally, upon completion of the online forms, the full amount was given to me for which monthly payments would be deducted. The $159.00 taken out of my account was not listed on the Order form at all, even after it was deducted from my account.

Do not use Legal Zoom unless you want to be surprised by hidden fees being automatically deducted from your account. I have since filed a complaint with the BBB and have canceled my credit card.



Hi LegalZoom Customer,

We're sorry to hear that you were being charged for a service that you were unaware of.

 Hidden fees, misleading sales info, and ANNOYING customer service, 2/15/2012 10:56:04 AM
Reviewer: Heather Head from Charlotte, NC
I was pretty happy with Legal Zoom at firstprompt service, very friendly during the sales process, and my order proceeded without incident.

Then it came time to change my address. I had told them during the purchase process that I was going to be moving into a new office in a month, and asked whether I should wait to incorporate. They said, No problem. We'll take care of all the paperwork when you movego ahead and file.

Move into the new office, call to tell them my new address, find out there is a $50 fee to change my address.

Worse, the customer service wait times are horrific, and they seem to screw up around every bend. There was some confusion with my credit card not going through to pay the Registered Agent fee, so they called me. No problem.

Except that they called me six or seven times in a row without ever leaving a message, and when I tried to call back to sort it out with them, I had to wait in line for the next available representativefor so long that I finally gave up and waited for them to call me again.

When I finally did get in touch with them, I was told I would be called back in a couple of days, after I'd had a chance to speak with my bank and sort out the problem (which turned out to be that LegalZoom had the wrong address for my credit cardprobably because my bank doesn't charge me $50 to change my address).

So they called me back today... over and over when I was in the middle of a client meeting... again, without ever leaving a message. I finally picked it up and told them to please leave a message next time and that I would call back later.

Of course, now I'm waiting in line... again... to talk to someone so that I can pay my bill. If anyone has a recommendation for a Registered Agent with comparable fees and GOOD CUSTOMER SERVICE, please let me know. I am so done with this company.

 Should have known better, 1/26/2012 12:39:01 PM
Reviewer: Anonymous from Los Angeles, CA USA
I used the LegalZoom services to file for a Name Change. When I received the forms they where filled out correctly.
I chose to use them because I thought they offered a low price and customer support service. I should have just printed the forms myself and went to a paralegal to fill them out and I would have saved myself $65.00 - local paralegal charges $75.00 for the service, LegalZoom- $139.00, but after reading: ...A helpful checklist of relevant government agencies and financial institutions to notify after receiving your new name... description on LegalZoom site I assumed that I would be helped with post-court forms as well. When I called (800) 962-7490 to find out if I should use my old signature or the new one on SS-5 Form Chanel told me to ask the Social Security Office. I'm not impressed.
I will never use the LegalZoom again, nor will I recommend their services to anyone due to high prices and lack of customer service.

Although LZ took my request and completed my LLC (don't know what the average time is) but it seemed short. Thats good, however, they surprised me twice with my money.
1. Charged me $7.99 for item I knew nothing of but here is the kicker
2. Because I designated them as Caretaker, a surprise of $159.00 Young lady seemed rather rude, kept repeating the same thing over and over. LZ did not inform me there was a charge for LZ to be Caretaker the charge messed my books up and bank charge and the young lady gave me a big legal maze I have to climb through to get my$159.00 refunded. That is alot of legal talk. Lesson learned... don't use LZ again.

 California Non Contested Divorce, 8/12/2008 12:46:08 AM
Reviewer: Jerry R. from Santa Clara County CA USA
They sent me all of the forms and the directions. The first filing went ok but the clerk had to tell me to add some dates and signatures that were not in the legal zoom directions. The second filing was rejected twice all on the same kind of thing dates and details. When I got the first rejection legal zoom was pretty responsive, when I got the second rejection they stopped communication. I finally went to a paralegal and got him to review my papers. The devil is in the details.

If I had it to do again and I wanted to save money I would buy the book and you can print the forms off the courts website. Then I would go to a paralegal and just get the final help if I needed it. This is for a non contested divorce.

Reviewer: Rishona Campbell from Miami, FL
At first, I was impressed with LegalZoom's pricing, the setup of their website, and the knowledge of their sales staff. I placed my order to form a non-profit on 9/25/07 and the gentlemen said 35 business days, but it will more likely be 3 weeks. It is now 11/23/07, and my order is still not complete. First, I noticed that even though I sent in my portion almost immediately (signed form for the Registered Agent and approval of the ByLaws) the LegalZoom rep did not sign until almost about a month later. I already knew how to search online in my state to find corporate filings, so I knew that it was just sitting there...although in their order tracking...it stated that they were still waiting for response from the State. In my state, filings are processed in 7 business days, yet this status remained for over 1 month. Then, when the filing was complete from the state, the LegalZoom website did not update...and I changed my mailing address with them. Too late though, they sent out the package to the wrong address. Although that happened in early Nov., I couldn't get that explanation until this week (still, the website says final documents are still being prepared!). I received the

 dissatisfied with service, 5/2/2012 3:34:44 PM
Reviewer: Anonymous from USA
It does not seem that the LZ reviewer reads the submissions. He jumps to conclusions without reading the entire paperwork and responds by e-mail or phone seeking an answer to a question when the answer is there in front of him in print. LZ tries too hard to live up to their name of Zoom while sacrificing quality. It seems they are more interested in getting work moving along and off their desk. So much so that they do not understand a customer request for Hold and continue to badger the customer about finishing a process even after a request for a Hold. You get what you pay for, which in this case is poor service for cheap prices.

 Warning regarding using legal zoom, 4/10/2012 8:16:11 PM
Reviewer: Anonymous from Los Angeles, CA USA
I recently filed articles of incorporation with legal zoom. While their website was fair and straightforward in use I have a serious complaint. As background, I am starting a small business. I had the articles of incorporation sent to my residence by UPS. UPS reported left the articles in front of my door. I never received the package. Now I have ALL of my personal identifying information out there in someones hands. When I called to ask the company about it, they said well it's really UPS's fault. Actually, legalzoom shipped it and did not require a signature for delivery. If you value your privacy and do not seek to risk identity theft DO NOT USE LEGAL ZOOM. What a huge headache to have to worry that someone out there is ruining my credit as we speak. Thank you legal zoom for your incredible assistance and the hour spent on hold.

Hi Aric,

Your comments and experience are important to us and we appreciate your feedback.

Per your previous conversation with our Customer Care manager, we are unable to issue a refund at this time. LegalZoom only ships packages requiring signature at the Customer’s request, our standard shipping is always sent without requiring signature. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you.

 Can't seem to cancel my account, 3/30/2012 10:54:53 AM
Reviewer: JR from Northern CA
I have tried for a week to cancel my account with LegalZoom. Using the phone to do so is seemingly intended to frustrate the process. No one answers but I do get a recording that says someone will call back within two hours. Since I can't sit by the phone that long, all the return calls happen while I'm away. So, I tried to cancel via email. It's been several days but no response. I always am suspicious in circumstances like this that they intentionally make it difficult so that you give up in frustration.

 Unknowingly being charged a membership fee, 3/21/2012 10:26:49 PM
Reviewer: Yuemin from New York
I created the first document through legalzoom last year. I thought it was efficient and cost saving. However one thing I was unaware of was some membership fee after 30 days. It is not easy to identify as it was bundled with a few others as included. This was a forced-on option during your checkout. On the receipt you will not know what you could do after the trial period because they did not say anything. Beyond, they never send you a receipt after a charge every month. I hope they will refund those charges. For now I cannot order more documents because of those marketing pitches from the company, let along recommend anyone to use any of their services. I have no confident what I may get next time. To me it is a small thing I may lose three months of fees, it is important that they can convince me they are running an honest business that I can use without a second thought. It is called the trust.

While the website is easy to use, the staff is unhelpful and incompetent. I set up an LLC and asked them to email me the documents. After waiting on hold (over 20 minutes) on 2 separate occasions. Both times they said We'll email them to you. Of course they didn't. So I call their corp. HQ and tell the operator I have a complaint and would like to speak to a manager, she tells me I can only transfer you to a product. WTH???

Needless to say, I still don't have my documents. Stay away, lousy service, incompetent people.

Reviewer: Dave from New Jersey
I purchased two legal documents (Wills) and then found later that I had been charged monthly by legalzoom for a membership. All I wanted was the documents!

It was my fault for not catching it earlier but now 6 months later with $14.99 charges my wife sends an email about it and get's no response about the charges and getting a refund. However, they did cancel it for us.

Checking the review on this site, I've read that this has happened to other people on here and that legalzoom customer service said they'd refund if they'd call.

I just did that and they refused to refund any of the paid for months. I'll never recommend or use again.

They did a great job on the legal document for my elderly mother, delivered on time and and it looked nice. As my family and I was going through the process to get started they recommended that we use the comprehensive package and showed us all the reason why. When you get to the check out you get the price and it tells you that you get a 30 day free trial for a preferred package. YOU BETTER NOT STOP READING THERE FOLKS! Below that in italics is the point that YOU have to cancel this free trial after 30 days or you will be charged $14.99 a month forever. You will get some emails telling you some legal things, but never a reminder that your credit card is being billed. Now I know that they will come back and tell me that it is on the page and we should have read everything...they will be correct, but this just isn't right and not to the ETHICAL STANDARDS I expect from a site that is helping with legal issues. I am out of here and will not use them again.

 Mispelled my company's name TWICE, 2/29/2012 5:03:47 PM
Reviewer: Belinda 0hmd from Arlington Heights, IL
I filed for an LLC and an EIN through Legalzoom. Not only did they mispell my company's name on both (in 2 different ways) they took almost 2 weeks to answer me. I've left messages for people to call me back and who never did (Johnny #7282 and Patty #8720) sat on hold for 40 minutes waiting for anyone to answer their phone. Only when I emailed again asking for a refund THEN did they want to try to fix the mispelling. At which point I talked to an incredibly rude Mary in escalations. After all the hassles and run-arounds I just wanted a refund which they refused to give me.

 RUN AWAY- USE A LOCAL ATTORNEY, 1/31/2012 3:52:22 PM
Reviewer: eric henshaw from kansas
this site is a sham. i used legalzoom for my incorporation and it was $60 LESS than a local attorney and all they did was provide a certificate from the state. the articles of incorporation were a joke. Customer service is a joke as well. prepapre to wait an HOUR on hold to ask a question these bafoons cant or wont answer.

 Slow, horrible e-mail responses and times, 12/7/2011 11:08:49 PM
Reviewer: Katja from TX
I am getting really annoyed. I get bombarded with e-mails and when I answer them I have to send the same e-mail for 4 or 5 days before I get a response. Meanwhile I receive their e-mail 3 more times telling me I need to respond?
After that is finally taken care of, now it started over with another problem (registered agent) and I am glad I read these reviews about monthly charges as I was just about to make THEM my registered agents...
phew.. as much time and energy as was lost on this so far, I could have really just filed myself.
I wanted this for the ease and convenience, not because it's a service I require. Now, I just paid for a huge pain and np progress.

Hi Katja,

We apologize for your unpleasant experience with LegalZoom regarding the Registered Agent. We would like the opportunity to make things right.

If you are opting to serve as your own Registered Agent, Texas Secretary of State does require you to sign the articles and return them before we’re able to proceed with your Incorporation filing.

A Customer Care manager will contact you to answer any questions you may have and to confirm we will have your Incorporation filed as expeditiously as possible.

Thank you,

LegalZoom Customer Care

 hidden costs with legal zoom, 10/1/2011 2:29:00 PM
Reviewer: Gay Rife from Indiana
I paid a considerable amount of money in March to have Legalzoom set up our LLC. That went well, but after it was concluded I found additional monthly charges being put on my charge acount that I was not aware of. I contacted them about them and found it was for them being my resident agent. I told them I did not want or need them to be my resident agent and was told I would have to change it with the Secretary of State and send them copies of the change. I told them I did not want any of their extra services. When I tried to call their local office, there was never anyone there to answer the telephone. In about 2 weeks I had the resident agent changed with the secretary of state and sent legalzoom the documents. Then low and behold I find we are being charged another monthly fee. When contacted I was told this was for their advantage program which was free for the first 30 days. Since I had told them I didn't want any extra services, this should not have been activated. It took three transfers of personnel to get this corrected and in the meantime, I am out $30 per month because I did not call to cancel something I did not know I was receiving. I will definitely not be doing business with legalzoom again and I advise anyone thinking of doing business with them to watch for hidden charges.

Dear LegalZoom Customer,

We are sorry to hear that you were being charged for a service that you were unaware of and did not take advantage of. It is our policy in Attorney Services to refund our customers in instances where they were unaware of being enrolled in our Legal Plans.

We are constantly striving to ensure the satisfaction of each customer, and it seems we fell short of that goal in this situation. The plan that you were enrolled in is a legal plan that entitles you to receive unlimited attorney consultations at the flat fee of $29.99 a month (*and cancellable at any time). However, if it is something that you specified you did not want to participate in, you definitely should not have been enrolled. Please accept our apologies, and feel free to contact us directly so that we may refund the fees you paid for the membership. We would be glad to accommodate you and handle that refund immediately. Our number is 877.818.8787, and we can be reached between the hours of 6:00AM to 7:00PM (PST).

Please feel free to call or email us with any questions or concerns regarding this or any other matter. You can reach us toll free at 877.818.8787 M-F 6am-7pm PST or email us at advantagesupport@legalzoom.com.

Sincerely,
Jeremy
Manager, Attorney Services

 Worst ever, 8/30/2011 2:09:26 PM
Reviewer: Gabriele from FL USA
Over 2 month ago I paid quite a sum of money for them to set up a LLC for me. The contract with them stated that it will take up to 35 days to get all my paperwork for the LLC. I never heard anything back on the status and on the website the status was blank too. Never ever anyone worked on it for 2 month. I contacted them twice and then finally got an answer telling me that the name I had chosen was not good and I have to pick a new name. That took them more 2 month to do. I wonder if I will ever get what I have paid for. A real disaster and I would give 0 points if I could.

 Trademarks, 4/18/2007 6:52:02 PM
Reviewer: Anonymous from Chicago
I wanted to trademark my business logo and company name. Legalzoom was recommended to me via another company I have purchased services through. For over $600 I received a document with over 376 pages with a letter stating that I was to review the documents for potential conflicts. However, a picture of a potential conflicting logo's was not included nor were any logo's included. I was under the impression that Legalzoom was going to do the work...I pay. Rather it is

 Legalzoom, legal snail is more like it, 5/3/2005 10:56:15 AM
Reviewer: Thomas Sukalac from Mableton, GA
I signed up for LegalZoom to create an LLC for me on March 13 with their stated turn around of 20 35 working days. On March 31, I got a notice that they had gotten around to filing with the Secretary of State. On April 25 I got junk mail in my new corporate name and I inquired when LegalZoom was going to advise me. On April 26 I got an email back advising that they had not received my documents back from the Secretary of State.

Response from LegalZoom

Dear Mr. Sukalac,

When your LLC is filed with the Secretary of State, your company name becomes a matter of public record and is immediately published on government lists that are updated daily. Consequently, it is not uncommon for direct marketers to collect your company information before we receive your Articles of Formation back from the state. As for the slight delay in processing, LegalZoom does its best to estimate turnaround times for each Secretary of State, which vary according to the work volume and internal capacities of your particular state office. For faster service, we recommend LegalZoom’s Expedited Service. With this option, your documents are couriered or sent overnight to the Secretary of State and rush-processed for an additional fee. Turnaround time in this case is 7 to 10 days.
