In addition to certain guarantees provided by law, LegalZoom guarantees your satisfaction with our services and support. Because our company was created by experienced attorneys, we strive to be the best legal document service on the web. If you are not satisfied with our services, please contact us immediately and we will correct the situation, provide a refund or offer credit that can be used for future LegalZoom orders.
LegalZoom Satisfaction Guarantee Details:
If you're not satisfied, simply call us toll-free at (800) 773-0888 during our normal business hours. All requests made under this guarantee must be made within 60 days of purchase. We will process your request within 5 business days after we've received all of the documents and materials sent to you. Unfortunately, we can't refund or credit any money paid to government entities, such as filing fees or taxes, or to other third parties with a role in processing your order. We also cannot refund any money paid by you directly to third parties, such as payments made by you directly to attorneys affiliated with our legal plans or attorney-assisted products.
If you want to exchange the product you ordered for a different one, you must request this exchange and complete your replacement order within 60 days of purchase. The purchase price of the original item, less any money paid to government entities, such as filing fees or taxes, or to other third parties with a role in processing your order, will be credited to your LegalZoom account. Any payments made directly by you to attorneys affiliated with our legal plans or attorney-assisted products are not eligible for exchange or credit. Any price difference between the original order and the replacement order or, if a replacement order is not completed within 60 days of purchase, the full original purchase price (in each case less any money paid to government entities or other third parties) will be credited to the original form of payment. If you paid for your original order by check, LegalZoom will mail a check for the applicable amount to your billing address.
Please note that we cannot guarantee the results or outcome of your particular procedure. For instance, the government may reject a trademark application for legal reasons beyond the scope of LegalZoom's service. In some cases, a government backlog can lead to long delays before your process is complete. Similarly, LegalZoom does not guarantee the results or outcomes of the services rendered by our legal plan attorneys or attorney-assisted products. Problems like these are beyond our control and are not covered by this guarantee.
Since we're dedicating time and effort to your legal document preparation, our guarantee only covers satisfaction issues caused by LegalZoom - not changes to your situation or your state of mind.

Each year on the fourth Thursday in November, families gather round the dinner table to celebrate Thanksgiving. Declared a national holiday by Abraham Lincoln in 1863, Thanksgiving is uniquely American, as are most of the foods associated with it, including the star of the show, turkey. According to the National Turkey Federation, 88 percent of Americans eat the beloved bird every Thanksgiving. With that in mind, we've taken this opportunity to honor some of the wackiest and wisest patents and inventions associated with the Thanksgiving feast.
The subject of plant patents may sound like a boring one, but it affects every single one of us and the food we eat. The resurgence of interest in plant patents stems from the fact that "new and improved," genetically modified crops are eligible for patents, and these plants' patents have a significant impact on farming practices and the future of traditional, independent farmers across the country. But what does it take to receive a plant patent.
Regardless of what you sell, if you're an online entrepreneur with a unique method of doing business, you may be sitting on a valuable, patentable product. But will your method be found patentable, or a mere abstract idea?
A patent is an important document which grants ownership to an invention. However, simply owning a patent won't generate a dime for the inventor. To profit from your idea, you must sell the patent, license usage rights, or market the product yourself.
