Each of our reviews, scores, and rankings is derived from our proprietary Ranking Criteria™. We do not have any relationships with companies that guarantee position, rank or score—and we never will. Like many sites, we are compensated through affiliate relationships with each company we review; however, our Ranking Criteria™, along with real customer reviews from people like you, ensure we remain honest and unbiased. Read on to discover more about how user review moderation and expert scoring is processed or select an industry to see our full ranking criteria.

How we rank for

18% Personal Services

We take into account the personal legal services, such as assistance with estate planning, divorce, child support, prenup, real estate, patents, and copyrights, offered by each company. Companies that score well in this category offer several personal services and have documents available for download.

28% Price

Consumers generally utilize online legal services in an effort to save money, so price is considered one of the biggest deciding factors when selecting an online legal company. For this reason, we have given price the heaviest weight.

15% Available Attorney

It is typically recommended to have an attorney review legal documents to ensure that the quality will hold up; therefore, we consider whether or not the company has attorneys on call to answer questions and give legal advice to customers.

14% Completion and Delivery Time

We score companies based on how quickly they can deliver services and documents to customers without compromising quality. The quicker a company can deliver, the better its score will be.

10% Stability Score

We look at the legal history and financial stability of each company. This metric takes into consideration any bankruptcies, class action lawsuits, government lawsuits, or government investigations a company has had in the last five years.

15% User Score

Authentic user reviews are critical to what we’re doing at BestCompany.com. Because customer service is an important reflection of a company overall, nobody can provide better insights about a company’s performance than actual customers. Consequently, every company’s overall score is influenced, at least in part, by reviews submitted by customers.
