Legal Services for Businesses

Focus on your passion, and we’ll focus on ours –
protecting that passion.

We will listen to you to find comprehensive legal solutions and work with you to accomplish your goals.

Litigation

We are trial attorneys. Each one of us has been in the courtroom questioning witnesses, objecting to opposing counsel, delivering closing arguments. Be it fraud, breach of contract, malpractice, a lease dispute, trademark infringement, or whatever your issue – we absolutely love it, and we will go there with you. But, we don’t want your case to get to that point if we can help it. While building your case and preparing for trial, we are communicating with you and tailoring our representation to suit your needs while crafting an innovative legal strategy and negotiating with opposing counsel to work toward the best possible result.

Employment

The law tends to favor employees. Contact us for a consultation on your employment practices before you find this out the hard way. We can provide a precautionary audit before the Department of Labor or Department of Workforce Development come knocking, so that you have time to fix illegal practices you may not even know are illegal before it’s too late. We can help you draft employee handbooks and employment agreements, consult regarding independent contractors v. employees, terminating an employee, draft and assist with enforcing non-competition (often referred to as “non-compete” agreements) and non-solicitation agreements, and much more. We want your business to run smoothly without surprises.

Business Start-up

You’re really doing it. Excitement, terror, confusion, excitement again. We went through this too. Let us register your entity, draft your contracts, review your lease, evaluate your employment set-up, and consult regarding your other legal concerns so you start your business right and don’t end up reading the litigation section of our site.

Established Business

Are you an established business but have a few legal questions? We are your consultants, just a phone call away. We offer comprehensive small business packages to cover all your needs, or services a la carte if you prefer.

Landlord

From day-to-day advisement on obscure tenant issues to thorough drafting of complex leases, we will help you navigate the tricky maze of ever changing commercial and residential landlord-tenant laws. For those tenants that overstay their welcome, we handle evictions from start to finish so you don’t have to be in court any more than necessary. Whether you are a landlord with two or 200 tenants, a property management company in need of daily advisement or a newly found investment property owner with questions, or just in need of a lease, we want to hear from you to see how we may advise and assist.
