Summary

Have you spent time searching online trying to understand how the law applies to your business specifically, but never really getting a solid answer? We help entrepreneurs do business right with high-quality, customized legal advice online and over the phone.

Making sure you understand how the law affects your business comes first in all of our work. We break down difficult legal concepts and put them into a practical context. Understanding the legal aspects of your business now better equips you to make business decisions in the future.

We aren’t just lawyers, we are entrepreneurs and legal educators who will empower you more than any other lawyer you’ll find.

Education First!

Our education-based approach keeps both power and responsibility in YOUR control. You will always be an active participant in your own matters. You will always be treated like the entrepreneur that you are. We take an educational approach to help entrepreneurs like you better understand the legal aspects of your business of you before you make important decisions.

Flat Fees!

We use a fixed-fee flat rate model where you pay up front for the legal advice and services that you need now. There is never any retainer or hidden fees, because your detailed invoice describes the scope of the work you are paying for up front each time. We value you by giving you full attention for the scope of services outlined on your invoice.

Convenience!

For your convenience, all work is done exclusively over the phone and through our secure client portal, where we will share documents and communicate securely once you become a client. We bridge the practice of law with convenience, creating an innovative way to practice business law that puts entrepreneurs like you at the center!
