- What if this collaboration doesn’t work out?
- Are my contracts leaving me open to problems?
- How can I protect the content I worked so hard to create?
- What do I do if someone steals my work? How do I deal with a copycat? What happens to my personal assets if I get sued?
Just think, you could hand your worries off to the legal expert for online business owners, and get back to getting results for your business.
I can help you reach your goals, with expert guidance to make smart decisions from the start, and problem-solving when things don’t go the way you planned.
Let’s get rid of that scary feeling in the pit of your stomach that you and your business aren’t protected
No surprise bills.
Clients have told me they had no idea what it would cost to work with a lawyer who charged by the minute (how long does it take to draft a contract? Well, that depends…).
They were afraid that a lawyer would drag his feet on their project, just to run up the bill.
There was no way to make an educated decision about whether taking a legal action would be a good return on the investment.
Clients who have worked with a lawyer had been burned by surprise bills for something they thought would be a simple fix.
They hesitated to contact him, because they didn’t want a pay hundreds of dollars for an answer to a quick question.
They had no idea if a something the lawyer suggested was really needed or just an excuse to bill more hours.
I work with clients on a flat, project-based rate (that we both agree on before we get started), or on a monthly retainer.
You can feel confident that your lawyer always has your best interests at heart, with a predictable cap on your costs and a clear return on investment. You’ll feel free to ask questions. And you’ll see the clear value in the results from our work together.
