LegalZoom Online Document Service, Inc. is a registered and bonded legal document assistant, not a law firm. The founders of the corporation, who are attorneys themselves, sought to fill a need. They realized many Americans weren’t taking care of common legal matters for fear of incurring high attorney fees.

In many cases people seeking legal protection were simply uncertain about how to proceed. LegalZoom is an easy-to-use online service designed to walk users through the process of creating their own legal documents.

Legal Documents are a Serious Matter

People like to save money, but hunting for a legal document template online can be risky. On several occasions, I’ve been appalled when signers use one-size-fits-all documents provided by free, “legal” websites. Some of the documents I’ve been presented with were accompanied by notary wording that hadn’t been revised in more than a decade!

While notaries never choose documents for their clients, they understand that improperly drawn documents might not be accepted in a court of law or by government agencies. I’m always confident about a signing when asked to notarize documents drawn up by the LegalZoom online document service.

LegalZoom: A Better Way

Robert Shapiro Joins the LegalZoom Team

LegalZoom founders Brian Lee, Eddie Hartman, and Brian Liu had a great concept, but felt they needed a highly visible partner that people trusted.

Topping their list was O.J. Simpson “Dream Team” member Robert Shapiro. When Brian Lee phoned the high-profile defense attorney and prepared to leave a voicemail, he was surprised when Robert Shapiro answered the phone himself. The two discussed the concept and Shapiro ultimately came on board.

LegalZoom is a provider of legal document creation services, including copyrights, DBAs, divorce, immigration, business formation, trusts, wills, name changes, patents, power of attorney, prenuptial agreements, real estate leases, trademarks, estate and personal planning.

LegalZoom also maintains a directory of attorneys, and functions as a certified California attorney referral service.

Founder Brian Lee phoned Robert Shapiro at 10pm expecting to get a voicemail recording. Shapiro himself answered the phone, and after a brief overview, liked the LegalZoom concept.
