What real clients say about working with Autumn
I am very comfortable with talking to Autumn about our business goals and trusting that she’ll make certain that our legal obligations/concerns are aligned. I absolutely LOVE flat-rate billing. Chemistry is as important when choosing advisors for your business as it is when you choosing a spouse. Autumn is committed to building relationships with her clients and not just managing transactions. She knows that all large businesses started as small ones. I trust her to be honest, to give robust feedback and to challenge us to protect ourselves legally.
Working with Autumn has helped ensure that I’m starting off client and collector relationships on the right, professional foot, and to keep things organized from the very beginning. There hasn’t been any confusion in terms of what can be expected from me and that means the world. I first heard Autumn on a podcast interview and I loved that she spoke in plain language. I quickly felt I could trust her. Once we started working together, everything was straightforward, including prices and results! I would recommend Autumn to any creative or artist who is building a business or looking to raise their business game.
Since I first worked with Autumn on a client contract, my business has really taken off. I liked that even during communications about serious business, Autumn always treated me like an actual person. Her personality definitely builds a sense of loyalty, and it’s clear that Autumn understands the needs of her clients and genuinely cares for and roots for them. I would recommend Autumn to other small business owner without hesitation.
Autumn is down-to-earth, approachable and grounded. There’s no
confusing legal speak – just straight-talking, practical advice. She
is personable and more approachable than a corporate law firm. I was
initially nervous about the cost of legal help, but I was happy to
know her flat rate up front. I would recommend her to other online
Since working with Autumn, I have the documents I need for my growing online business as I’m branching out into new ventures. She told me exactly what I needed, and I know she wouldn’t tell me I need anything I don’t. Autumn gets the job done professionally, quick, and tailored to what the business needs. I would not hesitate to recommend her to other entrepreneurs. Plus, Autumn will celebrate your wins by toasting you with champagne!
During our legal planning session, Autumn helped me understand my rights as a business, and how to protect myself from having my content stolen. The follow-up email after our session was very helpful. Since putting her recommendations into place, my client retention rate has gone up, my contracts have been amended, I have more confidence in understanding my rights, and I have a collections process in place for delinquent accounts. I’ve also submitted my course to be copyrighted.
I have and will continue to recommend Autumn to other creative entrepreneurs. I was able to gain confidence around copyrighting my intellectual property. The copyright gives me more confidence to allow my course to grow and reach more people, while still staying protected. Autumn made me feel like I was the only client she had. She listened really well and understood my situation fully. Just having someone to talk with about it all
was very reassuring. Autumn cares, knows what she’s talking about, is extremely professional and instills a great confidence in her clients!
All of my questions regarding trademarks and agreements were answered during my legal planning session with Autumn. As a result of our session, I figured out that my current agreements don’t fully protect me and this led me to adjust the way I use my privacy policies and terms and conditions. The best part of working with Autumn was benefiting from her intelligence and knowledge of not just the law, but business in general. I would definitely recommend her.
I knew I wanted to be protected legally but I didn’t know what I needed an attorney to help me with. I love that Autumn is so approachable, it’s easy to ask her questions. She asks questions that make you think and ultimately lead to better legal protection. Since starting to work with Autumn, I have a rock-solid client agreement and have filed my first trademark application. I love that I feel like I have an attorney in my back pocket. If I ever have a question or a new legal shift, I can call on Autumn to give me answers! Autumn is a SOLID attorney, she understands the creative industry and the quirks that we have. She’s flexible and super knowledgeable. I LOVE working with her!
I would recommend Autumn to any creative entrepreneur who is ready to level-up their online presence or is about to expand the reach of their brand by writing a book, launching a course, or refining their one-on-one contracts. I think most lawyers see a lot of worst-case scenarios and give advice based on avoiding those circumstances, but Autumn’s approach isn’t fear-based at all. I really feel like she’s meeting me where I’m at and supporting my vision rather than advising against all the things that could go wrong. Autumn is humble, honest, kind, and smart, and a badass. She feels like more than just a lawyer – she is someone I can really trust with supportive advice, personally and professionally.
When you’re a creative you learn that most “professionals” don’t know how to deal with our businesses, and it makes you afraid to trust anyone with your very personal business. But Autumn totally gets it, helping to protect me and my work without belittling my creativity or questioning my direction. Autumn has helped me kick my businesses up a notch—with trademarks, truly professional, ass-covering contracts, and operating agreements to protect me, my business, my customers, and my partners. It’s a mindset shift for any creative to think about your business in the way you need to in order to bring in a lawyer, but Autumn’s there to guide you through. Now I don’t have to have sub-par coverage because I’m in a new, blooming industry. I can be as legit and supported as everyone else. I have the security of knowing I have a legal pro on my team who has my back. I feel prepared to take over the world!
