NEW BUSINESSES:
Are you thinking about buying or starting a business?  If so, you likely have more questions than answers. Venturing into a new business is exciting, but it can also be overwhelming – the evaluation process, proper entity selection (Corporation, LLC or other entity), legal compliance issues (state or federal), employee and day-to-day concerns. Having one-on-one consultations with a licensed attorney can be invaluable. All of my services are interactive. I can provide you with all legal/business formalities and necessary documentation and compliance matters, helping you minimize your risk. I will be with you 24/7 and work within your budget to keep your costs to a minimum. Please Call or Email Me Today. 

“I will provide quick, valuable and cost effective services.  Let me help you get up and running, maintain your business, or solve a problem.” 

  • Cost Saving Company Formation Packages: I provide many cost effective flat-rate Packages. You will know exactly what it will cost to form your company or venture. There will be no hidden extra fees and all Packages will be customized to fit your needs.These Packages include one-on-one attorney consultations.

EXISTING BUSINESSES:
Many existing businesses are in need of periodic or regular legal and business consulting services.  However, these services are often avoided due to exorbitant fees charged in relation to services provided. To remedy that I provide numerous legal and business services, at extremely reasonable rates, for Close or Family Businesses, Sole Proprietors, Partnerships, LLCs, Corporations (For-profit and Non-profit) and other ventures.  I will act as your ” 24/7 in-house counsel” without the extra costs of an employee. Whether it is an employee matter, contract dispute, drafting of a needed legal document, or you desire to sell your business, I will be available for you.

    • Custom Business Documents and AgreementsHave you formed your LLC but have yet to prepare an Operating Agreement?

My goal is to save you money – while providing you with a needed document and legal advice.
