Legal Advice for Home-Based Business

Home Business Supplement tailored to your home business

Hiring a law firm for your home-based business can be expensive. And with DIY legal websites, you may not know the best actions to take or have access to consultation with a lawyer when you need it. LegalShield’s Home Business Supplement provides access to a provider law firm for a wide variety of business legal matters for only $14.95/month. You’ll receive a year’s worth of unlimited consultation and a multitude of actual services for around the cost of a single contract review elsewhere. You might be self-employed, but you’re not on your own. Get legal assistance that’s tailored to your unique needs, enabling you to focus on what you do best—running your home business.

What’s included in your Personal Plan Supplements:

Advice, consultation, and research

Receive advice and consultation on business legal matters related to your home business, plus 1 hour of research on each matter as needed.**

**This does not include business legal matters covered under designated consultations. Certain business legal matters are not covered.

Designated consultation

A provider lawyer will advise you on business legal matters including tax, patent, trademark, copyright, or antitrust. Receive up to 3 annual designated phone consultations each year, of up to 30 minutes in length.*

Letters or phone calls

A provider lawyer can provide further help with business legal matters by sending letters or making phone calls on behalf of your home business. Receive any combination of 12 letters or phone calls annually for both in state and out of state business legal matters, each on a unique business matter, with 1 follow-up communication if a response is received from a third party.

(Additional letters or phone calls, beyond the plan limit, can be obtained for a $75 flat rate each.)

Document review

Contracts and other business legal documents can be complicated and may include language that is not in your best interest. A provider lawyer can review business legal documents. Every month, you can submit up to 4 documents of up to 25 pages in length pertaining to both in and out-of-state business legal matters.

(If you need more than four documents per month, a flat rate of $75 for each additional review applies.)

*Doesn’t include documents that are related to administrative proceedings and lawsuits.

Collection letters

Late-paying clients are an unavoidable part of business. A provider law firm can help collect money that’s owed by writing collection letters, up to 4 per month for both in and out-of-state matters. (For additional letters, a flat rate of $75 each applies.)

IRS audit legal services

With a Home Business Supplement, you receive IRS Audit Legal Services for help with items included on Schedules C and E of your personal federal income tax return. Business entity tax returns are not included.

Interstate services

Receive help with out of state business legal matters including consultation, document review, collection letters, and letters or phone calls.

Preferred member discount

For additional legal services not outlined in the member contract, you may receive a discount from your provider law firm’s standard hourly rate. Your provider lawyer will review these fees prior to engagement.

Residential leasing

Do you lease up to 10 residential properties? LegalShield’s Home Business Supplement helps alleviate guess work and headaches that stem from landlord-tenant issues. (Does not cover commercial property leases such as high-rise, offices, retail/restaurant, multifamily complexes, etc.)
