Protecting your online business shouldn't be complicated.
Now, it doesn't have to be.
Streamlined legal services to get you covered.
You know you want to protect your online business.
You've worked so hard to build up your virtual empire and you are excited to keep pushing forward.
But, you understand the urgent need for legal protections. And the need to protect your users' data.
This isn't one of those things you "get to later", it's one of the most important steps you can take for your business.
Legal services for online and virtual-business-minded entrepreneurs can be exhausting. And expensive. And you never quite know what exactly lawyers are billing you for with their "six-minute billing increments" and time spent thinking about your case while they grocery shop.
Intellectual Property Law is in it's own legal ball game, and the world of the Internet
can make knowing what protections you do and don't need incredibly confusing.
Luckily, I have a solution for this problem: stream-lined, flat-fee legal services for entrepreneurs created by an actual entrepreneur.

Everything you need to protect your business, in a few simple services.
Not sure where to start protecting your online business or need a little guidance for your current protections? In our one-hour consultation, we'll go over what you're doing right, what could use improving, and everything in between when it comes to the legalities of your awesome business. You can also just check in with me about anything you need regarding your business - this includes asking as many questions as you need about data privacy and security for your users.
Commercial Contract Drafting
Whether you're looking for an agreement to bring on a new coach or consultant, to buy or sell a business, a SaaS, MSA, SLA, or other service agreement, an employment agreement, or another general commercial agreement for your small business, I can help. I have the experience needed to draft a document that's absolutely perfect for your needs!
Terms & Conditions
A Terms & Conditions Agreement is vital for your business's website. These Terms & Conditions will set some guidelines for your website visitors - things like ownership over the intellectual property and content on your side, what things they can't do with your content, and how they should behave with your site. It also protects you in case of a dispute by setting up the most favorable legal procedure for you. I'll work with you to ensure your Terms & Conditions has everything you need to protect yourself and your website.
Intellectual Property Cease & Desist Consultation/Letter/Follow-Up
Is someone stealing your content? This is the service for you if you think someone may be using your intellectual property - whether it's a song, a piece of art, a blog post, or any other Internet content - without your permission. The Internet is unfortunately rife with a lot of intellectual property misuse, and with this service, you and I can sit down and talk about how best to fight infringers. If you're currently dealing with a lot of IP misuse, we'll go over your options and the best path moving forward in our consultation and follow-up sessions.
A Freelancer Agreement is a must-have for any online freelancer doing business with multiple clients. In this document, you'll get protected in case anything goes wrong with your client and you'll be able to describe the type of behavior you expect from your client - things like on-time payment and edits and what happens in case of a dispute. Contact me and we'll get started working on what you need, together.
A Non-Disclosure Agreement is the best protection you have when you're beginning talks with a new client, a new partner, or a business that is interested in your ideas. In a Non-Disclosure Agreement, also called an NDA or Confidentiality Agreement, you'll establish that the person or business you are talking to can't take any of your intellectual property or plans or ideas and that if they do, you'll be entitled to certain legal protection. I can also help you negotiate an NDA with a business that might be interested in working with you.
A Non-Compete Agreement is a good thing to have if you are employing an individual that you don't want to leave and start a competing business in a reasonable time frame after they work for you. Non-Competes also help protect you in the event that a former employee steals customer information or data. These are critical tools for protecting your business.
An Employment Agreement forms the heart of the relationship between employer and employee - or, perhaps, contractor and client. When you're starting a new business relationship, it's great to have everything in writing. It can be especially confusing if you're on the receiving end of a contract and you're just not sure what it all means. I can help draft, review, or edit the exact type of agreement that will work for your needs.
Trademark Search & Registration
Finding and registering a trademark for your business can be a very arduous, frustrating process. The do-it-yourself route is touted as being easy enough, but the truth is, you need an attorney who knows the ins-and-outs of trademark registration to ensure the process is done right. I'll work with you on setting up your trademark and will guide you through the process (without making you do any of the heavy lifting) to make getting this protection a piece of cake.
Need help registering a copyright? Whatever creative work you are looking to protect, registering a copyright will ensure that you have long-term control over your content. Much like trademark registration, copyright registration can get tricky if you don't know the ropes of dealing with the U.S. Copyright Office, but I'll make sure the process is smooth-sailing.
A Copyright Assignment is used when someone owns a copyright registration and they would like to transfer that to someone else. In this document, you can enter the details about the specific copyright and about who it is being transferred to. Ideally, you'll also be able to record this document with the U.S. Copyright Office, which I can help you with.
Form A Business In Florida, New York or California
If you need to form a Limited Liability Company, Corporation, or Nonprofit in the states of Florida, New York, or California, I'll work with you through the process from start to finish to ensure proper setup of your business.
Ongoing Legal Coaching
If you aren't sure where to start when it comes to protecting your business, why you should do it in the first place, or how to go about getting what you need, you need a coach - just like with anything else! During our coaching sessions, I'll help you understand what parts of your business need protecting, what protections they need, and how to go about getting and keeping these protections. If you have any legal questions or concerns, our coaching sessions will be the place to ask.
Ongoing Legal Help
If you're business is booming and you're finding yourself needing new freelancer agreements, NDAs, Non-Compete Agreements, or other legal services on a regular basis, an ongoing legal retainer may be the best option for you. We'll work together during our time on any documents, legal consulting, or other IP services you might need.
If you already have a contract in place, whether a standard plug-and-play agreement you downloaded from the Internet, something you drew up yourself, or a document created for you by another attorney, I'll gladly review and revise your intellectual property, employment, or other internet contract to ensure you're getting the maximum protections for you and your business.
Legal Blog Writing
If your company or firm needs to have a regular legal blog on your website for content marketing purposes, I'll use my first-hand legal expertise and my extensive experience in blog writing to pen content that is unique, engaging, and most importantly, accurate.
