We The People Legal Document Preparation Franchise Information:

We The People is the national leader in legal document preparation services. In fact, We The People is the only national chain providing high quality, affordable legal document preparation to consumers who choose to represent themselves in uncontested legal matters. The company offers more than 80 common legal documents, including divorce, living trusts, incorporation, and Immigration.

A Phenomenal Growth Industry

We The People serves customers who cannot afford the high cost of attorney fees, as well as those who can - and simply choose not to. Since it was founded in 1985, We The People has served over 550,000 customers at 163 offices in 30 states. Ranked 124th on Entrepreneur Magazine\'s Franchise 500 list, We The People continues to excel as one of the fastest growing franchise concepts in the country.

We The People franchises provide a range of services for many routine legal matters. In the American Bar Association Journal (March 1991) it was estimated that "consumers could save more than $1.3 billion annually by using document preparation services..." As the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics observes, "the Legal Forms Business is the largest growth industry in the nation, second only to home health careā€¦" The rapid growth in popularity of the self help legal movement represents a major change in how people can now gain access to our legal system.

Training and Support

Experienced, seasoned professionals provide initial training including preparation and filing of legal documents, cost-effective marketing strategies, and overall business operations and procedures. Ongoing training, support, and guidance in business development, legal compliance, and quality control is accomplished through our periodic Training Sessions.

We The People franchisees enjoy the benefits of an accumulation of industry knowledge gained through the invaluable, hands-on experience of the Franchisor and other Franchisees who are currently successfully operating We The People legal document service centers.
