we help grow & protect businesses

you don't have time for bull. yeah, we don't either.

so let's cut the crap.

we're not here to tell you what you want to hear. we are going to tell you like it is, because that's our job—to tell you the legal options and consequences. so you can make the business decisions. we stick to the legal stuff.

we're just nerds that enjoy drafting and reviewing contracts. negotiating deals. getting transactions done. solving problems. and doing things right.

About

why we do this

we firmly believe in the no-bull approach to law. we've taken what clients hate about law firms and done our best to cut the crap.

quick responses. flat rates. we listen. keep you informed. no fancy offices. as paperless as possible. we care. our goal is to get the deal done, not kill it.

we speak to you in English, not legalese. we know the difference between legal and business advice, and we only offer legal.

we enjoy it. because we're nerds.

we take the time to get to know you and your business. because if we don't, how can we give good advice that works for you?

how we work

Rates

we prefer flat rates (as much as possible), because who doesn't want to know up front how much it is going to cost? but we'll let you choose (for the most part) how you want to be billed.

we have flat-rate monthly plans that all include unlimited communications about routine business stuff. because literally EVERYTHING can be a legal issue. we handle the legal end, while you focus on what you do best.


Time

we watch the clock. not for billable hours though. because we don't want to waste your time, or ours. we spend as much time as needed to get the job done right, and then move on.


Quick

things happen fast for businesses. we respond as quickly as possible, because no one likes to be left hanging. and we use technology to make it easier.
