WHY TURN2LEGAL?

In today's world, every small business needs to have some level a legal protection.  The problem is that most small businesses cannot afford the high hourly rates that many law firms charge.  As a result, most small business owners download generic forms from the Internet,  look for legal advice online, try to represent themselves, or worse, they ignore the situation and hope it goes away. 

 

There are big problems with trying to represent your small business on your own. Here are just a few.

  • PRO-SE REPRESENTATION NOT ALLOWED

Did you know that Under New Jersey law, a business must be represented by an attorney in all lawsuits? That's right. A business must be represented by an attorney in any litigation. It cannot be represented pro-se, but the owner, president or any other member of the company. 

Rule 1:21-1(c) prohibits, (With specific exceptions), a business entity other than a sole propriety from appearing or filing any paper “…in any action in any court of this State except through an attorney authorized to practice law in this State.”  Therefore, corporations must be represented in court by counsel. See Globe Media Grp., LLC v. Cisneros, 403 N.J. Super. 574, 577 (App. Div. 2008); Olympic Indus. Park v. P.L., Inc., 208 N.J. Super. 577, 580-81 (App. Div.), certif. denied, 104 N.J. 453, 517 (1986).  Rule 1:21(c) extends to all legal proceedings and, as such, requires corporations to be represented by counsel at mediations as well.  

  • INTERNET LEGAL DOCUMENTS DON'T CUT IT

Do you think that your business is unique, different from your competitors? Well, it is! Why would you devalue your business by using "Stock" online legal forms that are not specific to your business and more often than not, cannot protect you?  In our years of practice, we have helped thousands of people who thought it would be cheaper to download a legal form or contract only to end up on the wrong side of a lawsuit because the document did not protect them. 

  • YOU CAN'T LEARN TO BE A LAWYER ONLINE

Lawyers spend years in law school and even more time dealing with challenging situations in practice. I know that you can learn many things online but lawyering is not one of them. So many small business owners have had to close their doors because they tried to be their own lawyer. Don't let this happen to you. 

  • FREE ONLINE LEGAL ADVICE . . . BUT FROM WHOM?

There is a tremendous amount of free legal advice and information available online. The problem is small business owners who rely on this information may be getting advice from paralegals, lawyers who don't know the laws of New Jersey or New York, law students, or worse, people who obtained their law degree by watching Perry Mason or L.A. Law.  Your business is too important to risk getting bad legal advice. 

WHAT IS IT?

  is a pre-paid legal services program that costs less than what most lawyers charge for one hour of their time. Now, your small business can finally get the legal protection and advice that it needs and deserves, on your terms and without breaking the bank. For a low monthly fee, small businesses can have access to our attorneys for legal advice and deeply discounted rates for all legal services. The turn2legal program basically allows small businesses to have regular access to an attorney just like the major corporations do. 

HOW DO I GET PROTECTED?

It is so easy. Simply complete the online form or call/email us and we will get you signed up today!, 

AREN'T THERE SIMILAR PROGRAMS OUT THERE?

NOT LIKE THIS! While there are companies the offer pre-paid legal services, turn2legal is unique because you will be working with the same attorney or team each time you call. Other services put you into a pool of participating firms, and you never know who you are going to get. This means that you may spend most of your time explaining your situation or business to a new attorney every
time you call. 

 

With turn2legal you will not have to repeat your situation each time you call. Instead, you will receive the same attention and commitment as our other clients.  We get to know you and your business so that you maximize the support and assistance you receive.
