Business Law & Nonprofit Law

Why Not Hire a Big firm?

Running a business isn't easy. All businesses need legal advice, counseling, and representation for a laundry list of reasons but are often too cost-conscious to afford high-priced lawyers or big firms. Many businesses are working hard to pay their own overhead, why would they want to help pay for a large firm's fancy office space lease, bloated staff, and outdated technology?

That's where we come in. My firm runs lean, which allows me to pass cost savings on to my business clients. I generally avoid hourly pricing and instead focus on what a project is worth to the client in the long-run. You will usually know what my representation will cost before we even begin. No surprises.

Another advantage I offer small business clients is that I understand your needs when it comes to litigation intersecting with business matters. Many attorneys are far too risk-averse to advise the modern business in day-to-day matters. I make sure that we understand your business and its priorities so I can provide legal advice that considers your business needs alongside your legal needs.

Finally, I understand that taking time off from your business might be tough to do. No worries - I can come to you at no extra cost.

I Can Fight Your Battles

Litigation is a big part of what I do. I have been litigating for as long as I have been a lawyer. I handle cases in both state and federal court. I don't limit my litigation practice to any specific type of case; I prefer instead to take a holistic viewpoint that lawyers are meant to litigate cases that appeal to them.

CASES I LITIGATE:

  • Commercial disputes
  • Contract performance and payment disputes
  • Employment discrimination cases
  • Wage & hour disputes
  • Copyright infringement
  • Trademark infringement
  • Licensing disputes
  • ERISA benefit disputes
  • Insurance coverage disputes
  • Construction defect and performance matters
