Realistically, many startups use Clerky or other similar services and are successful. So it’s certainly possible for you to get done what you need with them. However, I really think it would be wise to at least get some initial legal advice about what you want to do before moving ahead. When forming your startup, you want create an entity that is personally designed and tailored to the specifics of your company. Using basic templates and boilerplate documents can omit a bunch of your company’s specifics that you may want to include. Other stuff comes up during formation as well and Clerky’s helpfulness only extends to the documents. The worst possible scenario is running into a problem down the road that could have been fixed or avoided in the formation process. On the other hand, by using an attorney during and after formation, a startup has a go-to person to turn to with the various legal issues that arise.
