What They Say.

"Jared helped my wife and I with a business and real estate transaction after he was recommended by author/lawyer Joel Ankney.

He showed a strong commitment and ability to adapt throughout the process. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for legal assistance."

Austin P.

"After researching many of the Business Law firms in Orlando, we ultimately selected Forward Law to represent us. I had confirmation this was the right choice when one of our investors indicated that their attorney felt our Offering Documents were among the most through they had ever seen. You should get what you pay for and we certainly did. I highly recommend you have them at your side."

Jeff W.

How much does it cost? 

Most of our business formations like LLCs, corporations, Not-For-Profits, and document drafting is provided on a flat fee basis. We offer a range of services based on need. Our packages for LLC and corporation formations can range anywhere from $1,000 to $4,000 based on what is best for your situation. Speak with our business development team to learn more about which packages would work best for you.

Why should I hire a lawyer when I can do it myself online for a fraction of the cost?

Despite companies using the word "legal," there's not a whole lot of legal to it. The few questions those services may ask, and even fewer documents they provide, likely won't cover all of the intricacies of your business, your growth plans, or set you off on the right foot with investors. Not only does using an attorney provide a professional backdrop for investment, but including documents such as an operating agreement, resolutions, and offering Registered Agent Services, our firm makes sure you get the notifications you need, while heading some potential issues off at the pass. 

What we often see are clients who initially used some of these DIY services coming to us shortly after opening, generally with some sort of disagreement between owners. This situation can be, and often is, catastrophic to the business. Making the investment in having well-thought out, protective agreements prior to these issues can save a lot of time, money, and headache. 

Why do you require deposits?

Simply put, we want to be a transparent as possible with our pricing. The deposits we take generally reflect either the full cost of the service for flat fees, or a the first section of the project for hourly fees. This means that our potential clients have a good understanding of the fees associated before the service even starts. Additionally, requiring these deposits allows our attorneys more time to focus on client work, and provide that extra meeting, or work ahead of schedule. 

We still understand how it can be intimidating to hire an attorney without meeting them first. That's why we offer a 100% Money-Back Guarantee. If you do not wish to continue with our services after the first meeting with the attorney for any reason, or our attorneys inform you that your matter may not be worth pursuing, we will provide a full refund.
