Most business owners need professional legal services at some point, and many entrepreneurs are curious about frequently advertised online options. After all, using websites such as LegalZoom and Rocket Lawyer for basic legal services, like filing for an LLC, is much less expensive than working with traditional lawyers at law firms.

While lower prices are enticing, the decision to use an online legal service rather than an attorney in a law firm is a big one since the consequences of improperly filed contracts and other inaccuracies can be severe for the business owner. This guide isn’t intended to condemn or recommend online legal services or law firms for specific business uses but rather to illuminate the differences between these legal options so business owners can make an informed decision.
