Running a creative business is an exhausting endeavour. You’ve got to create:
- social media content
- blog content
- email marketing content
- sales page copy
- client/customer work
- products and services
- content upgrades
- and a million more things
Your to-do list never ends. You’ve got a million balls in the air. And your friends and family think you are crazy because you work more than you would if you had a 9-5 job.
And the list above only covers a small piece of what it takes to run your business. Believe me, I get it because I’m in the trenches with you. (You can see for yourself over at the artist’s J.D.)
But those legal to-dos sit on your to-do list for months. Because the legal side of running a creative business seems like a completely foreign language.
The next step
Before we dive in any further, I want to tell you, “You rock!” Because by visiting this website, you’ve taken your first step to getting your legal ducks in a row.
Thinking about hiring a lawyer is scary. You might worry that it’s going to cost you an arm and a leg. Or be afraid that you’ll have to deal with an old guy who doesn’t understand what it takes to run a creative business.
But you are ready to reach your big goals, so now it’s time to take action.
And the next step involves bringing on an expert that wakes up in the morning excited to daydream about the legal nitty-gritty.
To help you out, I’ve created three ways for you to take the next step.

How we’ll work together
I know that dealing with the legal aspects of your business can be stressful and intimidating.
But I like to do things differently.
My goal is to make the process transparent and as painless as possible. To talk to you in a language you understand, not a bunch of legalese. I want you to leave each session confident. I want to make sure you understand. I want the decisions we discuss to propel your business forward.
I’m here to serve as the bad guy, buffer, translator, therapist, or whatever role you need me in. I want you to rest assured knowing that someone is watching your back and looking out for you. I want you to spend your time creating not fretting about legal stuff.
I’ll let you in on a little secret, sometimes I feel like the luckiest girl in the world. In my role as your attorney, I get insight into all your goals and dreams for your business. And so I get a vicarious thrill each time I see you reach those milestones and set bigger and bigger goals. Seeing you reach these goals propels me forward and makes the bad days totally worth it. I mean who wouldn’t want to be surrounded by creative, talented, and inspiring women entrepreneurs every day?
I’m on a tight budget, how much will this cost?
Anytime you bring an expert in to help grow your business, it’s going to be expensive. In my own business, I think of bringing an expert an investment. Because of that, I’ve got a little fund that I add money to each month, so I can work with experts I trust.
But to help you know exactly how much it will cost you to work with me, I do my part by providing services on a fixed fee basis. I’ll give you a proposal outlining exactly how much it’ll cost to work together. You’ll get an email with the options we discussed and the flat rate associated with each option.
This is not your typical law firm
I created my own law firm because I looked around and couldn’t find a place that I wanted to send my friends. I’m not a big fan of suits (although I do LOVE a good blazer). And if we meet in person, I’ll probably be wearing jeans and may have ridden my trusty Peugeot, Pierre, to our appointment.
In fact, the biggest compliment I’ve gotten from several clients is that I’m the lawyer they actually want to meet for Happy Hour.
