Our Story

Once upon a time...

We didn’t envision building a national company when we started Capitol Services in 1978. A small office in Austin offering Texas UCC searches was all we really had in mind. In fact, if our banker had required us to prepare a business plan, we probably wouldn’t be here today.

Many years ago, our first CPA commented that the best thing we had done was hire nice people. We think that still rings true. Some of those people are still with us today, including two who started with us in our first year of business. Quite a few clients who gave us an opportunity to earn their business that first year remain with us too.

Forty years later, Capitol Services has offices from coast-to-coast providing a full range of corporate, registered agent, and lien services. More importantly, we still hire nice people and retain them. Even though we have continued to grow and add new people, 40% of our employees have been with us for over 10 years.

A lot has changed over the past 40 years, but our mission has remained the same – “to provide friendly, efficient, and cost-effective service to our clients amid a relaxed atmosphere that encourages a balanced work-life experience for our employees.”

The seed that was planted four decades ago in Austin, Texas has grown. We have friendly customer service representatives from New York to California, all intent on delivering personalized service to every client, every day.




At Capitol Services, we believe success is built upon having the best interests of both our clients and employees in mind. Our culture is deeply rooted in values that promote teamwork to achieve exceptional personal service.


“They care about each and every client. I really enjoyed working with them.”
