Legalzoom's LLC Pricing
Economy LLC Package ($79)
Legalzoom's Economy LLC Package is $79 plus state filing fees. The Economy LLC Package is one of the slowest turnaround times in this industry. 30 days to create an LLC is an eternity and for this reason, the Economy LLC Package is rarely purchased.
The Economy LLC Package comes with a Name Availability Search, Peace of Mind Review, preparation and filing of the Articles of Organization (in 30 business days); Tax Saving Analysis; Online Progress Tracking; and a Next Steps Guide.
Standard LLC Package ($329)
Legalzoom's Standard LLC Package is $329 plus state filing fees. The Standard LLC Package has a 15 day turnaround time.
The Standard LLC Package comes with everything from the Economy Package PLUS a business newsletter; a company book with membership certificates and company seal.
Express Gold LLC Package ($349)
Legalzoom's Express Gold LLC Package is $349 plus state filing fees and shortens the turnaround time to 10 business day. Legalzoom's fastest service is still much slower than the competition.
The Express Gold LLC Package comes with everything from the Economy and Standard Packages PLUS priority filing; VIP Processing; Express Shipping; Financial Account Authorization Letter; 7 Day/Week Customer Support; and Discounts on other Legalzoom Services.
Legalzoom's compliance calendar includes information and deadlines specific to the filing requirements for your type of business. The service is $69/year. The compliance calendar is not what Legalzoom used to call Total Compliance, where they would handle the annual maintained for you. This is merely a calendar to remind you of the annual deadlines.
Total Compliance (no longer offered)
Price: Compare Apples to Apples
The four most commonly requested or "core" services are: (1) preparation and filing of LLC paperwork with the state; (2) within two business days; (3) with a custom/personalized operating agreement; and (4) an EIN. Legalzoom's price of the 4 core services comes to a grand total of $508.
Legalzoom's Express Gold ($349) will covers the first 2 core services (paperwork filed with the state within 2 business days). You'll have to pay an additional $159 for the other two core services (operating agreement and EIN).
You can purchase a prepaid legal plan, which includes all kinds of things including unlimited 30-minute consultations on new legal matters for a flat monthly fee. Plan prices vary based on your state and the plan you select (business, personal, annual or six months.) In Texas, a 12-month Business Advisory Plan Membership costs $31.25/month. See Legalzoom's Business Advisory Plan.
Legalzoom also offers features like LegalProtect, which offers set-up advice from a small business attorney, and the Compliance Calendar, which helps you stay compliant with regulations, for an additional annual fee.

Real Legalzoom Reviews
"Professional, fair and as well as cooperative. Provided excellent speedy service. Felt assured about next steps and variables to obtaining the very best services from LegalZoom." -M. Thersa.
"LegalZoom has very extensive offering of services on their website. It was very easy to navigate and things were easy to find when searching. Twenty five minutes and I was all set with everything I needed. Plenty of information on what I was looking for. The contact us page was the only difficult thing for me to find. I also would make live chat easier to find and utilize. Otherwise I can not complain about anything else with my experience. This was one if the best websites I have ever used, and I would recommend it to everybody." -Jay
How to Cancel Legalzoom?
Legalzoom has a long history in the online legal forms industry, and was one of the first companies to offer online legal forms. They also have a wide variety of legal forms available. However, due to the large number of negative Legalzoom reviews and unresolved complaints, particularly in the area of unauthorized billing, we cannot in good faith recommend Legalzoom.
