Registered Agent Services
When you incorporate your business, you are required to have a registered agent. All states require businesses that are incorporated or foreign qualified to have a registered agent in their state; however, many business owners have no idea what a registered agent is and what they do.
Please beware that if you act as your own agent, you won’t have the flexibility to close your office at your will or have flexible hours since you must always be open to accept service of process. Additionally, having a registered agent saves you from potentially being served with legal papers in front of your family, clients, neighbors or vendors. Lastly, you will appreciate having a professional registered agent service to track and notify you of annual reports being due and other filings that you may have to periodically file.
The Law Office of Richard W. Hartman III can guide you to understand the importance of having a registered agent and fulfill the demands placed on you and your business by the state so you can focus on running your business. Having a registered agent is imperative if you are:
- Incorporating in a state where you don’t have a physical location.
- Using a post office box as your business address.
- Doing business in several states.
- Changing addresses frequently.
- Working from a home office.
- Concerned about privacy.
- Worried you may overlook a document that requires immediate attention
- Not keeping normal business hours.
- Working from a mobile office.

Richard W. Hartman III founded The Law Office of Richard W. Hartman III, Attorney & Counselor at Law, PLLC to provide clients with honest, ethical, efficient, quality legal services.
Mr. Hartman began his career with a boutique trust and estate law firm, concentrating his practice in the administration of trusts and estates, which included the preparation of fiduciary accountings for trustees, executors and conservators. While working with that firm he also represented fiduciaries and beneficiaries alike in litigation involving challenges to the validity of wills and trusts, as well as protecting the interests of beneficiaries. Mr. Hartman also spent a considerable amount of his time with that firm assisting clients with guardianship and conservatorship matters.
Through those experiences Mr. Hartman came to desire a better way to serve clients and practice his profession. It became clear that offering his professional services directly to the general public was the best way Mr. Hartman could assist clients while maintaining the highest ethical and professional standards for himself, his work product, and his firm. This realization led Mr. Hartman to form The Law Office of Richard W. Hartman III, Attorney & Counselor at Law, PLLC.
