Get a 360-degree legal review, and a solid legal plan for your growing business.
Whether you’re a new or established business owner, legal questions are going to start to weigh on you as you begin to grow.
- Do I need to form an LLC or corporation to protect my business?
- What contracts should I use with customers, vendors, or partners?
- How can I figure out what to trademark or copyright?
Let’s cross these worries off your to-do list and concentrate on building your business.
You’ve poured your heart and soul into creating amazing online content, videos, music, books, courses, images, art, music, software, or new technology.
And you’re wasting too much time searching the internet for answers to your legal questions (that you aren’t even sure are right).
You need to step away from the keyboard and talk to an attorney who is the expert in creative and online businesses, and who can provide an easy-to-follow legal plan.
A Legal Road Map™ session is the first step to get your business legally protected. This session is a great value if you’re just starting out, or need help with your established business.
Why we start with a Legal Road Map™ Session
We want our clients to succeed, so all new clients start with a Legal Road Map™ session, but not every session leads to legal projects with us. Maybe we’re not a good fit, or maybe we learn the issue that led you to contact us isn’t worth pursuing at all (which ends up saving you wasted time and money) – either way, you leave with your questions answered and a concrete plan for next steps.
While our goal is to be your legal partner for the long-term, there is no ongoing commitment; after our session, whether we choose to work together or not, you’ll have:
- Answers to the legal questions that have been keeping you up at night
- New ideas, practical steps, and suggestions to use in reaching your goals
- A written Legal Road Map™ Report, usually delivered within 1 to 2 business days, which includes a summary of our findings from the session, the major takeaways, and my professional opinion on the best steps to reach your business goals, prioritized in order of importance.
During our Legal Road Map™ session, we’ll work together to answer your general business questions, help you figure out what you need to do to make more money, or strategize how to protect yourself, your content, your business, and your personal assets legally.
How a Legal Road Map™ Session works:
You’ll send information about your business and your biggest concerns to me before our session so that I can prepare and research any issues. If you have documents you’d like to discuss, you’ll also send them to me to review before our session.
Then, we’ll spend about an hour on the phone or Skype. You can ask me lots of questions and I’ll draw on my 12 years of experience working with the top creative business owners to answer them. Then, we’ll create a list of action items together that you can execute to take your business to the next level. You’ll feel confident that you’re making the right decisions for the future of your business. After our meeting, you’ll receive a written report with a legal plan to implement to help you reach your big goals.

In a recent Legal Road Map™ session with an online acupuncture business owner, we tackled:
- whether to form a business entity (LLC, corporation, etc.)
- dealing with copycats — people using her content without permission
- why website terms and conditions are a good idea, and what they should say
- how to protect her blog and e-course from being copied with copyright registration
- how to choose a great name for her business and protect her brand with trademark registration
- disclaimers for blog posts (not medical advice)
- how to use other peoples’ images on her blog the right way
In just an hour, we not only answered the questions she had before the call, she also received a 360-degree review of legal issues in her business. I pointed out legal holes she didn’t know about, and showed her how she could build value in her business by protecting her content. She finished with a legal plan and was clear on the next legal steps for her business.
And, when a publisher approached her to write a book a few months later, she already had a lawyer on her team she knew could help her navigate this new business opportunity.
