Incorporation Packages

Forming an LLC or other Corporate Entity – We are pleased to provide our clients with a variety of discounted entity formation packages to form your business. The do-it-yourself approach to preparing legal documents you find online often leaves small businesses exposed to the potential for lawsuits, penalties, and even personal liability if your business is not properly formed. The San Diego business attorneys at Gehres Law Group, P.C. have seen what clients get for their money from non-lawyer and cut rate competitors because we’ve had clients come to us to fix such legal documents and the resulting legal problems created by using these documents. This one-size-fits-all approach to preparing legal documents is much like purchasing a size 5 shoe to fit a size 10 foot—it often leads to a great deal of future discomfort and disappointment, and sometimes the demise of a company. Choosing to forego the advice and expertise of a San Diego business lawyer can leave owners exposed to a multitude of legal issues. Ultimately, the cost of using form documents is often much higher than doing it right the first time by experienced San Diego business attorneys.

The articles of incorporation or formation can typically be filed the same day, if the client provides the necessary information to us before 10am on a regular business day, or the next business day if provided after 10am.
