Business Formation

Business FormationFlorida Business Formation is a decisions that should not be taken lightly. The decision to form an entity for operating a Jacksonville or Florida base business, asset protection, or estate planning will directly impact your liability and tax situation. The most common types of Florida Businesses are the Florida LLC or Limited Liability Company, and the Corporation. Our Jacksonville Business Lawyers can help you choose the correct type of business entity.

Today with so many options available in terms of business formation, it is more important than ever to choose the correct Florida business entity and more importantly make sure that the entity is formed correctly and that the owners understand their responsibilities to maintain the protections that are available to them.

We often see clients with generic forms that do not relate to their personal situation and do not take advantage of the many benefits that a properly formed Florida entity can offer.

It is important for our lawyers to understand you personal situation, risks, and desires to evaluate the tax implications, liability issues, asset protection, and management structure that is optimal for your business success. We help people evaluate and choose from the following Florida Business Entities:

Once an entity choice has been made, each has its own requirements for planning, structure and relationships. An agreement will be created to define the relationship between the members, managers, partners, and shareholders. If you do not have an agreement there are default provisions in the Florida Statutes, but these provisions will usually not comport with the needs of the business owners or managers.

Client Reviews
★★★★★
After years of trying to protect my assets from creditors, I was shocked to find out that my assets were unprotected in ways I had never considered. Not only had I placed my assets at risk from my mother's creditors, but I had placed my assets at risk from other family members who were intent on manipulation. When my mother died, I discovered that a family member had changed my mother's estate planning documents. Mr. Goldman and his team were able to explain what went wrong and successfully defended my position in court. During the case, I learned that I could have had much better protection from family and creditors, thus avoiding years of litigation and undue familial stress. When it comes to protecting your assets and your family, I would highly recommend hiring Mr. Goldman and his team. Bill H.

As a real estate agent, I have been involved with many property transactions where I needed a probate attorney to help facilitate the transaction. I have used the services of Mr. Goldman and his staff over the last several years and continue to use them on a regular basis. His office has been able to navigate the court system and help estates sell their property quickly and efficiently. In addition, Mr. Goldman can help real estate investors structure trusts to protect their assets from creditors. Michael Starling

She’ll help you save money and time! I spoke to Holli today to help with a traffic violation and she was nothing less than amazing! She replied to all of my emails in a timely manner and insured that i was well aware of all of my options. I will be reccomending Holli to anyone i know that needs legal care! Thank you so much for having patience and taking the time to genuinely help me. The best part about it is that her advice saved me a ton of money because i spoke to a different lawyer from another law firm and they tried to make me pay $1250 without even asking about my case. Thanks again Holli, you’re amazing! Theara
