Why Hire an Attorney for Your Business?

The most important decision you will make for your business will be the people you surround yourself with. This will include not only employees and business partners, but also people who will provide service to your business. So, why should you choose Johnson Legal, LLC as the firm that represents you?

Hiring an attorney from the beginning can help protect your company not just from current legal issues, but preventing them from occurring in the first place. Attorney David Johnson of Johnson Legal, LLC can assist you in small business formation, daily contract and business matters, and various business agreements. Attorney Johnson can handle the formation of corporations, limited liability companies, non-profits and other business entities and can assist you in drafting shareholder, buy-sell, operating, non-compete and confidentiality agreements.

Hiring an attorney to represent your business, however, is not solely about legal services. Johnson Legal, LLC strives to be a firm you can trust with your business, not simply drafting contracts or agreements. One of the primary reasons that small businesses do not hire an attorney to assist them is the cost. With unpredictable and expensive hourly rates that rewards inefficiency, many attorneys are too expensive for most small business.

Johnson Legal, LLC, however, strives to make access to an attorney affordable. Most services provided by Johnson Legal, LLC are done on a flat fee basis. Moreover, Johnson Legal, LLC offers reasonable retainer agreements for clients to meet their needs.
