COLUMBIA, S.C., Nov. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Last year, customers in South Carolina used LegalZoom, the nation's leading provider of personalized, affordable online legal solutions for families and small businesses, to form more than 1,500 South Carolina LLCs and more than 200 South Carolina corporations. These are encouraging statistics in a difficult economic environment where South Carolina experienced unemployment levels higher than the national average -- reaching double digits in 2011.

"Our number one goal at LegalZoom is to help our customers access the affordable legal solutions that they need," said Ken Friedman, Vice President of Legal and Government Affairs at LegalZoom. "And we are especially  proud of our over 90% customer satisfaction rating here in South Carolina," he added.

"As a small business owner, there are so many decisions, expenses and issues that need attention," said LegalZoom customer, Andre Job, of Charleston, SC, who used LegalZoom to form his LLC in 2011. "LegalZoom is really a one-stop shop designed with the consumer in mind. The process was easy and cost-effective. I fully recommend LegalZoom to other small business owners."

In 2011, more than 9 out of 10  surveyed LegalZoom customers in South Carolina were willing to recommend the company to their friends and family.  And more than two-thirds gave LegalZoom a perfect score.

In addition to business services, LegalZoom provides prepaid legal services plans in South Carolina and provides access to wills and trusts to help customers protect their families and loved ones.
