Whether you are starting out or already established as a small business, deciding whether you should hire a business lawyer is always a question.  Many people think that attorneys charge high rates and many small businesses do not have much if any, extra capital to pay a lawyer.  Unfortunately, most small business owners only hire a lawyer experienced with business matters when confronted with a serious legal problem such as being sued by a customer or a third-party business dispute.  Legal help – particularly in the United States – is a cost of doing business that often saves businesses money, time, resources, and potential third-party scrutiny in the long run. 

Our attorneys understand what it takes to start – and successfully sustain – a small business.  While you likely do not need an attorney for every step of running your business, prevention efforts taken early on can have long-term benefits if the company should ever be faced with legal issue(s) in the future.  Our firm has represented over 42 successful small businesses over the past 8 years. We have significant experience not only understanding and advising on the law, but we understand business operations, best practices, and budgets.  Below are some of the key areas that our firm assists small businesses with:
