In-House Counsel Plans for Small Business

What is it worth to have an attorney who knows and cares about your business? What is it worth to have an attorney on call to answer your legal questions?

Small business owners often perceive the hiring of an attorney as a necessary evil only when faced with a lawsuit. For day-to-day operations they “wing it” on the legal issues from employment practices to customer relations.

Gayle Owens believes the business owner should not have to rely on a “wing and a prayer.” So Gayle has developed an “In-House” Counsel Plan. Beginning with a comprehensive legal audit, Gayle will assess your business and propose a customized plan of prioritized steps you can take to improve your legal position against the various risks involved in running your business. All plan recommendations will be quoted up front with flat rate fees, so there are no surprises to your budget.
