Every year, Americans spend millions of dollars on routine legal needs, from incorporations and trademarks to last wills. Others put off creating essential legal documents because of the inconvenience and high fees. As attorneys, we knew there had to be an easier, more affordable way to take care of common legal matters.

Our founding vision was for an easy-to-use, online service that helped people create their own legal documents. We brought together some of the best minds in the legal and technological fields to make this vision a reality. The result is LegalZoom, the leading, nationally recognized legal brand for small business and consumers in the United States.
From the beginning, our mission was to set new standards for convenience and service in an industry not typically known for great customer care. We believe it should be easy for anyone to create a last will, incorporate a business, trademark a name or take care of other common legal matters. For us, the goal is not simply to provide a smart, cost-effective alternative—it’s to make sure everyone gets the legal protection they need.
Since opening our virtual doors, LegalZoom has rapidly expanded to become the premier online legal destination for small businesses and consumers. But as the company continues to grow, we’re careful to hold true to our original vision. For us, putting the law within reach of millions of people is more than just a novel idea—it’s the founding principle.
