Does a Small Business Owner Need an Attorney?

Small business owners have no doubt that they need a financial advisor when starting their own companies, but sometimes equivocate on the subject of hiring an attorney.  While the proliferation of online legal do-it-yourself services has grown over the years, it’s tempting for many to turn to the Internet for guidance.  But this could wind up costing you much more in the long run.

A review of online legal service websites in the September issue of Consumer Reports magazine found that most of these sites do not offer the flexibility small business owners need in crafting important legal documents.  While you may save a few hundred dollars by using a DIY legal site, you could pay thousands later to correct a legal issue that has been handled improperly.

  • Contract negotiations and agreements
