Legal and business services for small businesses.

What to Expect

You get personalized help with your legal and business questions. It starts with a conversation where we discuss your business goals, understand what questions you have, and then consider what risks may be relevant to your business. Based on this information, we’ll make a plan to create the business you need.

We’ll decide

  • LLC, Corporation, or something else?
  • Do I need insurance and, if so, what kind and how much?
  • Will I have to collect sales tax?
  • Do I need a tax ID?
  • What do you need to hire employees?
  • Should I get investors and, if so, what will they expect?
  • Do I need a license to run my business?

Bring all your questions—I’m here to help you feel confident and comfortable as you launch your big idea!

Why I Love Helping Small Businesses

Small businesses make up 99% of US businesses, according to JP Morgan & Chase, and half of all US workers work for these small businesses. Nothing gives a sense of empowerment and accomplishment like running your own business and being your own boss. Also, small businesses tend to have strong connections with their communities and the money the generate tends to stay in these communities.

I grew up in an entrepreneurial family and started working for my dad’s family business at age 13. I started my own business in high school and another in my 20’s. After a few years working in the high-tech startup world, I decided to go to business school and then law school so that I could help others experience the dream and excitement of launching their big idea.

I want to help you succeed. Schedule a time to meet with me so that we can work together.
