Welcome to Jacobs & Dodds.

Our experienced lawyers have been providing knowledgeable, cost-effective legal counsel and representation for more than 35 years to clients embarking on new business ventures.

The attorneys at Jacobs & Dodds possess extensive experience guiding new business owners through the Business Formation process and helping to choose the most appropriate business entity to enter into. Because each provides different levels of protection against legal liability, choosing the incorrect entity when beginning a new business endeavor could result in exposing yourself to personal liability and potential financial ruin.

Please contact Jacobs & Dodds at (424) 247-1195 to make an appointment for an in-depth consultation with one of our seasoned lawyers.

A Torrance Business Formation Attorney will meet with you to thoroughly review the nature and scope of products or services that you plan on offering, and explain the advantages and disadvantages of each business entity to help you determine the most favorable choice to shield yourself from legal liability.

At Jacobs & Dodds, our primary goals are to provide the highest quality legal representation while actively preserving and protecting the best interests of our clients.
