““It is rare to find a large internet based company that provides the type of service your company provides.  I am amazed how your staff is organized, knows who to send questions to, and gets back with a prompt reply.  If I started listing the names, I would likely leave someone out.  But, you can share this enthusiastic endorsement with your LA staff. I have been a user before Jeff even started this venture.  He called me as one of the CPA’s doing a market survey as to the need.  This service has replaced and should replace all the’s and Legal Zoom’s of the world."” Trent Benedetti, CPA

“As a business manager in the entertainment industry, I have worked with eMinutes for several years. I need the convenience and efficiency of being able to start the formation of companies and access my clients' current companies online; however, eMinutes takes it a step further by offering personal service when you need to pick up the phone and make that personal contact. The staff is top notch. They not only form my companies quickly, but they are always available for quick questions that I might have regarding formations. I know when I engage their services on behalf of my clients that they will get the job done and get it done correctly. When other lawyers are too busy to call you back or charge exorbitant fees for even the shortest conversation, eMinutes is always quick to respond to my emails or call me back and their fees are all inclusive, which saves me time and my clients money.” Amy Beeson

For years I have been looking for a competent and reliable legal service to take care of my clients incorporating needs and the annual upkeep of their of their corporate documents. Recently I found eMinutes and I am absolutely thrilled with their service. They have a great team of attorneys available to answer any questions that my clients or I might have.
