Hello there, looking for a Business Lawyer for my Online Workout Supplement Business, which is still in the process of getting established.

1.Is there any lawyer out there who can help me form an LLC for me and or guide me through creating one, make documents for my independent contractors, and guide me through or create a Trademark for me for a cheap price?

2. My independent contractors will not be out of state nor country (not anymore, I heard it is not such a good idea to go out of your country or state's jurisdiction), so all my independent contractors will now be in CA.

3. So, can the Independent Contractor Documents, LLC/or guidance for LLC, Trademark/guidance all be done for $500 or less.

4. The first lawyer will charge me $2000 for anything dealing with LLC and documents for my independent contractors. I just emailed him asking if Trademark is included in this, (I doubt it is, but that would be kind of nice).

5. The second lawyer will charge me $1100 for Trademark, but he said I should only worry about that after I get more products in my store instead of just one product with an accessory. He said he will charge me $1250 for LLC all done for me (didn't say anything about guiding me through making my own LLC so I get charged less or no charge at all and said he will never try to put unnecessary charges on anyone, but I feel like he is over charging me or putting unnecessary charges on me). He did throw in a discount though if I bought is LLC plan (but that is not too important, because he could have just guided me through creating the LLC for myself with a low fee or no fee at all). The discount was for the documents regarding my independent contractors and he moved it from $500 to $300 and that is only if I go with his LLC plan of $1250. This guy will be charging $2500 total.

6. Now the third lawyer told me that hiring contractors for my business in the state of CA will be better since it is within jurisdiction. He will have me put in a $1500 deposit and refund any money or charge more depending on the situation. As far as I know he charges $275 per hour. Trademark will take him 4 hours to complete at the maximum, contractor documents will take 2 hours to complete, and LLC plan will take 4 hours to complete. That is $2750 total.

7. Help is very much appreciated to any references for cheaper lawyers. Anywhere from $300-$500 would be great regarding Trademark, LLC, and Contractor documents. But if that is impossible I would highly appreciate anyone who is under $1000 or anyone significantly cheaper than the current lawyers I have spoken with. Cheap and experienced Business Lawyers are highly appreciated, thank you guys and gals!

"Best" and "Cheap" don't go together.
