Our story

In 2001, we established ourselves as a tech company dedicated to making legal help accessible to all. With that mission in mind, we launched 10 online services, focusing on estate planning, business formation, and intellectual property protection.

Soon, word began to spread: there's a new, easier, and less expensive way to get legal help.

In 2010, after a decade of growing our services, we innovated again, and created an independent network of attorneys so our customers could get personalized legal advice—without having to leave home.

We knew there were still other ways we could help small businesses. So in 2020, we launched LZ Tax, a LegalZoom company. We now offer expert tax advice and accounting solutions that include full-service prep and filing.

With offices in Los Angeles, Austin, and the Bay Area, our united workforce of talented, diverse, and inclusive Zoomers is our recipe for success, and the reason we're able to empower millions to make their dreams official.

The values that guide us

Lift each other up

We build great teams by recognizing, motivating, and inspiring each other. We realize that we can’t do it alone, and success comes from working together as one team. We embrace a diversity of perspectives and celebrate our differences and our achievements together. We lead with empathy and respect, and we’re committed to each other’s success.

Champion our customers

Our customers are at the center of everything we do, and we’re laser focused on being a trusted partner at every step of their journey. We work tirelessly to provide access to the tools and expertise people need to start and grow their businesses. We understand and constantly think about our customers’ most critical challenges today so we can make their businesses more successful and hassle-free tomorrow.

See the whole picture

We’re relentlessly curious and strive to see how everything fits together. We’re constantly connecting the dots and leaning in to create a flawless end-to-end experience. We’re always thinking beyond our own piece of the puzzle. We collaborate with one another to understand the impacts of our decisions. We think big — but we know that every detail of our customers’ experience matters.

Focus on results

We are all owners of our business results. We set measurable goals, track progress regularly, and hold each other accountable. We aren’t afraid to take big chances and make some mistakes that we’ll learn and grow from — just like our customers do. We keep an entrepreneurial mindset, never settle for how it’s always been done, and keep pushing boundaries until we find a better way forward. We focus our time on impactful work to deliver outstanding results for our customers.

Keep it simple

We communicate clearly and directly to make sure our message can be understood with no confusion. We incorporate others' views, actively listen to new ideas, and embrace inquiry and debate. We value transparent, inclusive, and respectful communication to build and maintain trust with each other and our customers.

Making it official for everyone

We believe legal help should be accessible to anyone—regardless of who they are, who they love, the color of their skin, or their economic status.

We strive to support the broader small business community and general public through our social impact efforts. To do so, we're building lasting partnerships with nonprofits to help lift up underserved and underrepresented communities, often excluded by the traditional legal system. Beyond partnerships, we take part in corporate giving, and empower our employees with community service days off and corporate matching programs.

Meet our leaders

We're proud to be led by a diverse group of business leaders and visionaries that gives us the freedom to create and innovate.
