I had been thinking about incorporating a business for some time before I called. I kept hearing about all the tax benefits and figured I should take advantage of them. Millionaires such as Robert Kiyosaki, Bill Gates, Warren Buffett and Donald Trump say that the only way to get ahead in this life is to build a business of your own. It certainly seems that the tax codes favor business owners. So, I decided to call my attorney to talk about it.
Mind you, it was 4:45pm EST when I called. I thought, “I’ll just call and leave a message and they’ll get back to me some time tomorrow.”
Seven minutes later my phone rang and it was my attorney. He called me back 7 MINUTES LATER. I was blown away. What’s more is I commented that I didn’t expect him to call back so quickly and he responded, “We try to provide the best customer service we can for our members.” Have you ever heard an attorney say something like that? He basically told me that he wanted to do the best job he could for me because it was the right thing to do…not because I had tons of money to pay him. I was floored.
You might think that he would try to hurry up and “deal with my issue” quickly so he could be done in time to punch out of the office at 5pm. The exact opposite was true. He and I talk for 45 minutes and set up a time to talk again when I had the ability to take notes. The conversation took as long as it did because he kept asking questions like, “Is there anything else I can answer for you?” and “Is there anything else you don’t quite understand?” before we ended the call. He even recommended I speak with a tax attorney for some of the questions that I had and offered to make the introduction.
You might also think that he would automatically suggest the most expensive option hoping that his outstanding customer service would encourage me to fork over large quantities of cash to him. Again, the opposite is true. Right before we ended the call, he said something to the effect of, “There are two ways we can do this. I can draft all the paperwork for you and charge you the 25% discounted rate or I can tell you how you can do it yourself for free.” When I asked him what the difference would be, he said there wasn’t one and that he would recommend that I do it because he felt confident that I could. Let me tell you, that was music to my ears.
I haven’t called back yet but he’s going to walk me through the process of how to fill out and file the paperwork on my own and talk to me about some of the industry dos and don’ts along the way. Total cost to me…my monthly membership fee. I couldn’t be happier to be a LegalShield member.
