A La Carte Startup Services

Maybe you’d like to start your business on an a-la-carte basis. For $150 plus filing fees, we can set your business up in every single respect: from legal, to tax filings, licenses and trademarks. You can also choose from one of our many common business contract forms all billed at a flat fee of $75 or $150. If you don’t see something you need, we can create the legal form for you. Prices for Specialized Contracts are determined on a case-by-case basis.

If you are starting a business, the fee is $150 plus filing fees which includes filing with the Dept. of State, EIN (Tax ID), and a basic operating agreement or bylaws. Also includes the filing of any DBA (doing business as, or certificate of assumed name), plus the applicable filing fee.
What does your business do? What industry?
Most of the above contracts start at $300 and are usually capped out at $750 depending on the complexity, revisions, etc.
We're happy to answer any of your questions on the process, fees, etc.
