Our Story

Our "Why"

“The legal service field is changing … gone are the days when high priced attorneys were the gatekeepers of knowledge.  We all have access to that same knowledge now.  What business owners need are attorneys who can assess your individual need, interpret the information through a legal lens, and deliver it quickly, accurately, and affordably. If you’ve built it, then don’t you owe it to yourself to protect it?”
– Amy M. Toepper, Attorney & Founder

Legal In A Box was created to give small businesses and startups access to affordable, reliable business services.  Far too often, startups and small businesses have questions and concerns that go unanswered.  These questions often turn into larger, sometimes crippling problems.  They are always expensive and timely to fix later.  As such, we set out to make the process easier, proactive, and affordable, so small businesses could not only survive, but also thrive.

We provide a variety of services including new entity formation, annual reports, DBA’s, compliance filings, trademark searches and access to a library of business documents and connections to attorneys in your state so you may keep your legal house in order.
