Why Lawyer Agents?
Lawyer Agents was founded by a veteran corporate lawyer determined to fill a void. He saw that few registered agents had the legal know-how and connections to do anything more than receive state documents for their clients. He created Lawyer Agents to provide the solution: a lawyer-managed registered agent service with connections to a national network of legal specialists.
We continue to build and refine our founder’s vision. When you hire Lawyer Agents today, you get the same fast service, the same legal experience, and an ever-expanding network of resources when your company needs to take legal action. If your business ever gets served, or is simply in need of legal guidance, our network of legal specialists is at your disposal.
The Lawyer Agents Solution
Because we are a lawyer-founded, lawyer-managed registered agent service, we understand the legal significance of the registered agent’s role in the business world, and we understand that time is of the essence any time one of our clients receives service of process from the state.
This is why we include the following in addition to the services provided by most other registered agents:
We sort the mail we receive on your behalf, prioritize what matters most, and get your legal notifications to you quickly and securely.
We scan your documents as soon as we receive them, upload a PDF copy to your Lawyer Agents online account, and notify you immediately.
Our online system automatically monitors if and when our clients view new documents sent to their accounts. If we sent you a document you haven’t opened, we’ll notify you (again and again) until we are certain the document has been read.
Our unique status as a lawyer-managed registered agent service gives you access to a national network of attorneys, accountants, and legal specialists. This unique network is the heart and soul of the Lawyers Agents difference.
Registered Agent Service FAQs
What is a registered agent?
A registered agent is an individual or business that receives service of process and other state notifications and documents for your business—creating a reliable point of contact between your business and the state. Your registered agent’s name and address will appear on your company’s state registration or formation documents, and you are required to have a registered agent in every state where your company does business.
What does a registered agent do?
Every registered agent is required to do the following:
- Maintain availability: A registered agent must be available during normal business hours at a location designated to receive service of process and other official state mail. This registered agent office address must be a physical street address, not a PO box.
- Accept legal notices: A registered agent must accept legal notifications, state compliance reminders, and service of process. This is a big responsibility, and it requires experience and trust. When the state serves your business’s registered agent, this is the legal equivalent of the state directly serving your business.
- Relay notices to your business: Your registered agent must inform your business of any service of process or other state notice received—and must do so in a timely manner. To be effective, a registered agent must have a fast and reliable way to contact your business.
Does my business need a registered agent?
Yes. Registered business entities are required to appoint and maintain a registered agent in almost every state where your business operates. One major advantage of hiring a national registered agent service like Lawyer Agents is that you can stick with a single registered agent service if your business expands to other states.
Can I be my own registered agent?
Most states will allow you to serve as your business’s registered agent, but we recommend hiring a registered agent service instead. Why? On the surface, a registered agent’s job may seem simple, but the position requires you to be available during business hours on normal business days, and you must list your registered office address on documents easily accessed by the public. Hiring Lawyer Agents allows you to protect your privacy and maintain the flexible schedule you will surely need.
