Our Business Law Practice
Welcome to our online home. Take a look around the site and discover how we are quite a bit different than other business lawyers and law firms.
If you are the kind of business owner who wants to make a real difference in the world while you are in business and leave behind a body of work that continues to do good for your family, your clients/customers, and the world after you are gone, you have come to the right place. Most lawyers simply don’t see law the same way we do. In fact, you won’t find a lot of people who see law the way we do.
Why is that? It’s because the traditional law business model is flawed. It incentives lawyers to spend more time on matters (since they are billing for every hour in six minute increments), increase conflict (the more conflict there is, the longer the engagement), and constantly focus on the next new client (“one off transactions” are the norm in most legal practices). Plus, the world has shifted and quite a lot of legal work has become commoditized into online legal drafting software, documents on demand and do it yourself lawyering.
Lawyers, not being entrepreneurs, tried to compete and became mere shadows of themselves – document drafters, doing one off transactions for clients, such as incorporating business, and then went on the hunt for the next new client.
Not us. We build lifetime relationships with our clients. Because a legal relationship not built upon a lifetime foundation is worthless. Really. If you want a transaction, go online and find a document drafting service. If you want great relationship that will help you move your awesome idea into a revenue generating business, LIFT your existing business to the next level of excellence, and prepare you and your business to leave behind a legacy of significance, you have come to the right place.
We serve winners and those who intend to be. Welcome.
Working with us, we’ve been told, is unlike working with most other lawyers. We’re real people, with real personalities and enjoy making new friends every day. Instead of telling you, let us show you what it’s like. Come by and visit us to see what’s its like to work with us. Read More Here…
