Legalizing your business equips it to grow

You have a business. Now what?

After all, anyone can start a business. But growing that business? That means starting out on the right foot, and protecting it along the way

Business Formations

Not sure of the difference between a DBA, an LLC, or why you should care? We'll get your business started legally  (at a flat fee): 

LLC cost: $650

I will handle the entire process of setting up your LLC: from determining your specific business needs, to drafting all documents and making all filings. Once you're legitimate with the state, I will walk you through what to do after you have your LLC certificate in your hands.

Legal stuff has always been a little bit over my head—I feel like I ask SO many questions, and have to think so hard about it! Paige made installing website Terms & Conditions and a Privacy Policy simple: they were plug-and-play, and she kindly and promptly answered all my questions along the way ... bringing easy, breezy simplicity to legal "stuff" needed for my website!

intellectual property

AKA, the fancy term for copyrights and trademarks. When you've poured your time, energy, and passion into designing a product or building a brand, the last thing you want to do is lose that work to copycats. By registering a copyright or trademark, you'll have the peace of mind of knowing you are protected. 

copyrights

 Ideal for when you need to protect a product, or tangible item. Included is the drafting of all documents necessary for filing, and filing them for you with the Federal copyright office.

Copyright Ad On: A customizable cease and desist letter and licensing agreement for later use.

Note: federal filing fee costs are not included in the listed price.

trademarks 

You’ve poured your heart and soul into your business and built it into a recognizable name or logo. Now, it’s time to protect it. Included in the trademark package is the federal filing fee for one class per mark of $225, and a customizable license agreement and cease and desist letter to have on hand for later use. I will also provide you with information for your own resources, so that you know what to expect with your registration.

• Note: if you want two marks (for example, you want to protect your business name AND logo), we will discuss this in our initial consultation. After our consultation, I will determine if you need one mark or more. Prices for each additional mark will generally include a $1000 increase per mark.

$350 per mark; Copyright Add on: $500
