With an entrepreneurial focus and love of technology, I bring my business acumen and legal expertise together to help serial entrepreneurs, online professionals, influencers, and businesses of all sizes address their legal needs.
I am a leading business and intellectual property attorney for businesses of all sizes, entrepreneurs, content creators, online professionals, and bloggers. My practice is both traditional and online, inhabiting the same space as many of my clients, making my services convenient and accessible to business professionals who operate in a borderless environment.
I’ve been a lawyer over 20 years and can say that I made a good choice. I’ve been practicing as a social media lawyer long before the term “social media” was coined. I have both an MBA and a JD, and did that on purpose. While doing undergraduate internships I realized how much business people and lawyers disliked each other, and I wanted to be different. I wanted to be the kind of lawyer that business people came to because the first word out of my mouth wasn’t “NO.” Business people are all about taking risks. Even more so when it comes to start-ups, digital professionals, and online entrepreneurs.
Back in the mid-90s I fully embraced the web and how it was changing the way the law and businesses worked. As the dot-com boom was in full swing, traditional laws were being stretched by this new forum called the world wide web. Today, the internet is accessible on phones that are smaller than calculators some of us used in college. Clearly, the internet has changed the way we do business. And with those changes, the laws follow. Many times, though, the law has greatly lagged the trajectory of technology.
It’s this intersection of the law, technology, and business where my passion comes to life. My philosophy as a lawyer is to help clients do what they need for success, while steering them clear of roadblocks. I believe it’s possible to be ethical and successful.
