Michael Jones, Attorney at Law
|“Affordable Legal Solutions” for Ohio Businesses and General Legal Matters
Business Law and General Legal Services:
From helping individuals buy a business, sell a business, day-to-day issues, contracts, agreements, or just general consulting or other legal matters – I provide affordable legal solutions for Ohio businesses, entrepreneurs and others. As a practicing attorney, and having had the experience in various types of businesses, as an owner and operator, I understand the stress and demands placed on individuals when starting, running, growing, buying or selling a business. I also recognize the importance that businesses, of all sizes, play in our society – creating jobs, growing the economy and strengthening communities. However, many individuals, because of perceived cost constraints, avoid necessary services that are critical in protecting or giving themselves an opportunity for future success. To help you, I provide fast and affordable legal solutions (my fees are usually 1/3 of most attorneys). My goal is to help take the stress out of your venture and guide you through the formalities so that you can properly plan and focus on what is important – building a business, having fun and ultimately making money.
Co-counsel and Legal Support for Attorneys:
I also provide co-counsel and legal support services for attorneys. Practicing law has many demands. I provided legal support services for attorneys who need assistance with a case, project or any matter deemed essential in order to maintain, expand or simply help them achieve a balanced work / family life.
I graduated from East Tennessee State University with BA and MBA degrees. I continued my education at Capital University Law School, earning a JD degree. Thereafter, my initial legal experience began as a Staff Attorney for Justice Andrew Douglas with The Supreme Court of Ohio where I gained valuable experience at the highest state appellate level dealing with numerous substantive and procedural areas of the law. I have always had a passion for business. Following my employment with the Court, I had the opportunity to become a part owner/operator, with my father and brother, in a business. We purchased a tool and specialty manufacturing business – Aircraft Dynamics Corporation. Along with being the company’s Chief Legal Counsel, I was the Director of Marketing/Sales.I attended to the care of all legal policies and issues, corporate governance, provided advice to minimize risk, drafted necessary legal documents/contracts, and had oversight of employee legal issues. As Director of Marketing/Sales, I designed, implemented and managed all marketing/sales strategies and distribution channels, launched an e-commerce website, and was directly involved in developing numerous new products from concept through design and final sale. In 5 years, we increased revenues 4.5 times. I also started, ran and sold a very successful retail restaurant franchise, as an owner/franchisee. I handled all legal and business matters and attended to various day-to-day issues. Today, my focus continues on helping businesses – those that want to start a business, are already in business, and even attorneys who could use a legal support on a project, case or other matter.
I am admitted to practice law in the State of Ohio. I presently belong to the Ohio State and Columbus Bar Associations.
