Carl A. Knoll

Carl A. Knoll, the founder, has been in the legal industry since 1988. Early on, Carl realized that people became stressed when faced with legal issues—fear of legal ease and attorney fees.

Many legal documents are form in nature and do not require an attorney or legal advice, so in December 2000 Carl founded his first legal document preparation self-help company—We Help You Legal. Preparation of basic legal documents do not necessarily need to be time consuming, difficult and expensive. On January 15, 2020, PINK Legal was born—ready to flourish and embark on this new journey. 

We’re easy, affordable and professional. PINK Legal is a modern document preparation company with old school values. It’s employees are competent and caring. And, most importantly, PINK Legal is giving by donating a portion of its earnings to local non-profits to help promote and support social good.
