Our Offerings

While we began as a boutique registered agent service, we now provide a wide range of business services to support you and your company through many stages of growth, whether you’re looking for help starting a website, secure email and phone service, or affordable domain registration.

  • A professional business address you can use for your company
  • 3 pieces of regular mail (in addition to all service of process)
  • Free 90-day trial of phone service

Our offices are located in the state capital, which is just down the street from the Secretary of State’s office. We’re always here during normal business hours to accept official mail and service of process on your behalf.

Our History

Bernie Dietz founded Virginia Professional Services in 2006 because he understood the challenges business owners face at every stage of their development. In addition to practicing business law for over 20 years, Bernie has been a successful business development, marketing, and sales executive for several internet, software, publishing and technology companies, as well as serving as General Counsel for several companies. Through working with countless business owners, he learned that Virginia businesses need a reliable, knowledgeable, friendly solution for registered agent service and stepped up to meet that need.

Now, in 2024, we continue the legacy that Bernie started. Because we are based solely in Virginia, where our employees live and work, everyone who works here is an expert on doing business in Virginia. Unlike our competitors, we don’t make it difficult to talk to a real person. Simply give us a call or send us a message, and our customer support team will do their best to resolve any questions or concerns you might have. As our company grows, we remain committed to serving entrepreneurs in Virginia by providing you the high quality of service you deserve.

Our Promise

By keeping our business model simple, we’ve been able to offer high-quality products at affordable rates.

Low Cost

We offer flat-rate pricing with no hidden fees. Why? We believe you should know what you’re getting when you click on our services. It’s not helping anyone if you have to waste time at check-out doing math to verify what you’re buying. Our prices are consistent wherever you see them, from our website to your final receipts.

Local Experts

We don’t just work in Virginia, we live here. We know our state’s filing procedures, which allows us to give you the most efficient service possible. It also means we’re able to receive service of process on behalf of your business—and get it to you—far quicker and more securely than many national registered agent services that forward mail to centralized hubs for sorting and processing.

Personalized Experience

We’ve been in this business for over 20 years. As we’ve grown from a registered agent service company to a business services company that offers a wide range of business support tools, we’ve learned the ins and outs of forming and maintaining a business in Virginia. It can be a confusing process, but we’re happy to help guide you through it with ease. Let us take care of your state filings, so you can focus on what matters most: your business.
