Small Business Law Firm

You may call yourself a founder, an entrepreneur, a creator, a digital nomad, a blogger, a therapist, a lawyer, a business owner, a startup, an agency. No matter what industry you’re in, we can help.

At our firm, we know that you’ve put everything on the line for your business. And LegalZoom just won’t cut it. Online incorporation services are not a law firm and they cannot give you legal advice. We can. We want to develop a relationship with our clients before things go wrong.

Lawyers are not doomsday prophets. We are not here to scare you with all of the things that could go wrong in your business. What we want to do instead is show you how doing things properly the first time around is much more cost effective than having to go back and fix a mistake later on.

We know what can go wrong. We’ve seen distressed clients come to our office with a conflict or with a letter from opposing counsel. And usually, the problems could have been solved through a written agreement or good legal counsel from the outset saving time, stress, and money.

Get your business off to the right start. You will be glad you did.
