Small Business Subscriptions: "Let Me Consult My Attorney!"

Updated: Jun 19, 2023

After our last post regarding “no free advice,” you might be left wondering whether you can afford legal advice for your business. Perhaps you only occasionally have a question or want some guidance, but you cannot afford to lay down a requested attorney retainer and take time away from the business to address a simple question. Instead, you go it alone, you Google it, and you hope for the best–but you worry the entire time, and you wonder whether an attorney would have given you the answers you need. Perhaps the better question is, can you afford NOT to have legal advice for your business?

As a small business owner, you know that there are a lot of legal issues that can come up. You may not have the budget to hire an in-house attorney, but you also don't want to go without legal representation. That's where business subscription legal plans come in.

A business subscription legal plan is a type of legal service that provides your business with access to legal advice and services on a subscription basis. This can be a great option for small businesses that need legal assistance but don't have the budget for an in-house attorney.

There are a number of benefits to using one of our business subscription legal plans. First, it can save you money over time. Subscription plans typically cost less than hiring an in-house attorney–Murphy’s Law LLC’s plans start at $75.00 per month–and they often offer a wider range of services. Second, subscription plans can give you peace of mind. Knowing that you have access to legal advice and services when you need them can help you sleep better at night. Third, subscription plans can help you grow your business. By having access to legal advice, you can make better business decisions and avoid costly mistakes.

If you're a small business owner, you should consider whether our business subscription legal plan (or even one from another firm) is right for you.** There are a number of different plans available, so you can find one that fits your budget and your needs.

Here are some of the benefits of using a business subscription legal plan:

  • Cost-effective: Subscription plans typically cost less than hiring an in-house attorney. Ours start at $75 per month ($900 per year) for more than $2,000 worth of services throughout the year. Additional services are provided at a reduced fee.

  • Convenient: You can access legal advice and services when you need them, without having to wait for an appointment. A monthly automatic draft can be authorized so you can set it and forget it.

  • Flexible: Subscription plans typically offer a variety of services, so you can choose the ones that you need. If you don’t see the plan you need, I can tailor one to your business’s needs.

  • Peace of mind: Knowing that you have access to legal advice and services can help you sleep better at night. You will know you have the buffer of “let me ask my attorney and get back to you,” so you can feel confident in your decision-making.

If you're considering using a business subscription legal plan in our firm or elsewhere, there are a few things you should keep in mind:

  • Make sure the plan covers the services you need: Not all plans offer the same services. Make sure the plan you choose covers services such as contract review, employment law advice, or intellectual property protection.

  • Read the fine print: Before you sign up for a plan, be sure to read the fine print. This includes the terms of service, the cost of the plan, and the cancellation policy. We allow you to cancel at any time during the year with two weeks' notice, with only the costs advanced by the attorney required to be reimbursed at cancellation.

  • Talk to a lawyer: If you have any questions about business subscription legal plans, be sure to talk to a lawyer. A lawyer can help you understand the benefits and drawbacks of different plans and choose the one that's right for you. We are happy to redraft or negotiation terms and pricing to better suit your needs.

If you're a small business owner, a business subscription legal plan can be a great way to get the legal advice and services you need without breaking the bank. Call or send an inquiry through this site for more information.
