Whether or not you agree with earlier accusations that LegalZoom is practicing law without a license, it has been my experience that “entrepreneurs” who can’t set aside some capital for decent legal advice as part of starting up their company are not going to take that company very far. Maybe incorporating an entity and filing for a trademark fulfills some sort of self-actualizing New Year’s resolution, and LegalZoom certainly lets you do so on the cheap, but the one enduring rule of the marketplace is this: you get what you pay for.
