This membership also gives customers huge discounts on Rocket Lawyer's On Call Attorneys and Registered Agent services.

The Bad

  • File Your Own Documents
  • Lack of Attorney Information

Rocket Lawyer offers a wide range of valuable services to its customer base. However, there are a few drawbacks to its services.

File Your Own Documents

Clients have to file legal documents on their own. Rocket Lawyer does not submit the reports to an appropriate government agency, this will need to be done by the client. Although this company makes you file these forms yourself, it does give step-by-step instructions to help its clients fill out these forms.

Lack of Attorney Information

Rocket Lawyer does not give any information about how the attorneys and other legal staff in its network are screened. There is also no written standard on the website on how thorough the Rocket Lawyer team will review your documents for accuracy.

gavel

The Bottom Line

Rocket Lawyer can offer general counsel, help with contracts, starting a business, as well as offers many other features, all without going to a law firm and paying the law firm steep pricing.

Of course, if your legal needs are a bit complicated, meaning you have a tricky legal issue, or you want to be able to gauge the quality of legal counsel, you may want to upgrade your Rocket Lawyer plan. We recommend looking into its service of On Call Attorneys or contacting a local law firm.

Rocket Lawyers premium membership makes all of its features and pricing cheap and will help individuals with almost all of their legal problems. This membership gives customers access to legal forms, and general legal advice at any time, which can help small business owners get started.

If you are looking for a reliable and trustworthy service, Rocket Lawyer has shown that it is one of the best online legal services.

Great company, I used to use them all the time in my business, but now that I am retired, maybe twice a year, and they still always come through. But when I was in business, most of my legal forms came from Rocket lawyer. I had 4 businesses.

Jacob is awesome! I was really upset about Rocket Lawyer emailing my printer and causing a printer jam. Jacob was able to calm me down with his smooth voice and professionalism. I'm eating a beefy 5 layer burrito from Taco Bell so that probably helped too because I was hangry. I I fixed the paper jam and Jacob unsubscribed my printer email from the spam which was caused by my narcissistic abusive adoptive father trying to get a power of attorney over me by using Rocket Lawyer. I changed my printer email. We had a good laugh and Jacob and I bonded. Thanks Rocket Lawyer for this wonderful experience and opportunity I would have never had had otherwise since I don't use Rocket Lawyer for anything really. Shout out to Taco bell for being so tasty. Much love, -KP

Kevin from your Support team was fantastic in resolving a very frustrating problem with my membership. He is extremely personable and a great listener. He explained your membership options, asked me some clarifying questions and fit me into the right membership. I clearly understood my ability to transfer back to premium when/if needed. I am very pleased with the exceptional service Kevin provided.

I am truly thankful for God blessing me with you, Rocket Lawyer, being available for use by me (and anyone else) to get my divorce papers, not only completed to the fullest extent necessary, but completed with all the legal wording and setup of the pages, without leaving anything out. I trust that because of the formatting being legally correct, and I believe I didn't leave anything out of the papers at this point, that should my soon-to-be ex-husband agree with everything in our divorce papers and sign them, I will hopefully have my divorce granted shortly by the judge and be free of the living nightmare I have suffered with for a little over 3 years now. I thank God and you, Rocket Lawyer, for all of your help in this matter.

I loved being able to create an agreement using their interactive template. Super easy. Then it sent the document to the party I wanted to have sign it and edit it. Then, I messed up and didn't cancel the free subscription in time because my website designer got COVID and kept asking for more time. So I called their CS liine and they helped me with two great options to choose from. I sincerely appreciate what they do and love their kindness and for saying "we are just her to help". Thank you for that!

I had to print a document for a power of attorney and the trail was just enough time to perform this action. But since I forgot to cancel the trial I was charged $40. At the same time the gentleman by the name of Kevin P on the customer service side helped fix the problem and I couldn’t be happier. Thank all of you at the RocketLawyer team so much!

I used rocket lawyer's free 7 day trial to create nonprofit corporate bylaws. It was really easy, asked all the relevant questions in the interview and created a very complete and thorough document. They were willing to cancel my subscription without a hassle, as I am not ready to commit to a paid subscription right now, but will definitely consider doing so after our nonprofit is formed.

This is the reference standard for customer service. You get to speak with an actual person promptly who is also very courteous and professional. He promptly resolved y issue. I requested for a refund and it was issued immediately without any questions. Also, their software is very easy to use and enabled us to generate the required legal document immediately. An outside legal firm would have charged us hundreds of dollars for it. Highly recommend Rocket Lawyer for anyone wishing to get legal documents.

I advised about the issue. Justina did not hesitate to correct it. Was less the. 5 minutes. She did a wonderful job offering me the 1 plan, but at this time I wouldn’t need it. Very impressed and will use product in the future. Thank you Justina.

As a process server and licensed private investigator I was very pleased with the ease of use to create documents. Individually I have personal business to conduct and think the access to other forms is a huge plus. Text chat with customer service was amazingly smooth, simple, and the young lady was very professional and prompt in her replies and I truly felt I was receiving personal attention.

Rocket lawyer is a great way to do legal forms without hiring a lawyer on simple things in life like someone who owes you money, it has the papers and walks you thru the fill in part to make you look like a pro. I was very happy with my paper work, but I did not need to use them yet, but when the need arises in the future I will be back . I would recommend!

It was very easy to create the corporate by laws for my company. I needed them for the PPP loan I got from the government. I had never had any nor the need for any. I canceled my account because I don't really need any of your services any more. Also $39.99 per month is an extravagant amount to basically keep you on retainer. I would have been happy to pay $5 or $10 for the service I used. Maybe you should start charging a la carte for your services.

Well first of all I cannot believe that Florida doesn't have a law on evicting squatters or a bum from your residence you have to go through the court system instead of calling a police officer and have them evicted. My experience with Rocket Lawyer was very user friendly and when I called to cancel my subscription they were very nice about it and didn't pressure me to keep using their web site.

I used Rocket Lawyer for a one time Confidentiality Agreement. At this time I do not need to continue the service, but as I progress, I see the benefit of maintaining the service for future business documents I will be needing on a regular basis. Signing up for the service was quick and easy, discontinuing the service was the same. The staff for cancelling were easy to access through you phone system, and the person I spoke to was polite, helpful, cheerful, and professional. Thank you Rocket Lawyer!

I used Rocket Lawyer to draw up divorce papers when I was going through a divorce. This in the long run ended up saving me quite a bit of money. The legal papers based on your state are mostly legit. I did have to hire an attorney to be on the safeside, but saved big time by having just having him look over the divorce agreement that I drew up on Rocket Lawyer and making any necessary amendments. Because of that and because my ex and I were in agreeance with our terms, our divorce was speedy and reasonable priced. I will certainly be using Rocket Lawyer in the future for my contract needs.

The person that took my call was very good at explaining what Rocket Lawyer was all about. I have never paid for such a service but it was explained very well. I was not aware of a service that did what you do. I need a little time to closely review the entire website but I will do that as soon as I can. I have a small business in which I may need to build a form. I plan to be on your site soon to view what else is possible and to determine if the price is right for me and my service (Charter bus service).
