WHY HIRE ME?
“... My temperament is not inclined toward more self-promotion than is absolutely necessary for my professional well-being.”
I help business clients build their empires and protect their interests. Businesses sail complicated, confusing legal waters from the day they launch to the day they exit. In many areas of the law, failure to comply can result not just in loss of capital and missed opportunities, but in running aground on the shoals of draconian governmental penalties. As an experienced and savvy business law practitioner, I play navigator to the business owner's captain to guide the ship of their business safely from port to port.
Flexible fees & alternative billing models
My practice model allows me to charge half or less of what could otherwise be charged in the Los Angeles or New York legal markets for big-firm attorneys with the same experience, credentials, and skills. Entrepreneurial in most ways, WLF offers five innovative billing models. For clarity and certainty, most client engagements are memorialized in a formal engagement letter explaining your and our responsibilities, rights and expectations. Click here for more details.
Not your father's business lawyer
Even a solo practitioner has a firm culture. My style? Jeans over suits. Substance over form. The practice of law occurs in the head, heart, and intuition. In the interaction of the attorney-client alliance. Not (necessarily) in a suit and tie. I do my damndest to speak plain English and translate "legalese" into something understandable to the ordinary, intelligent business person.
Value-added legal services
By selectively representing entrepreneurs, businesses and investors, and by leveraging technology for efficiencies without the weighty overhead and costly staff of large firms, I can operate nimbly in an alliance-based, counselor-client relationship to meet the demands and protect the interests of modern business clients.
I use use digital documents, e-signatures, electronic payments, and cloud storage & sharing. Not only am I available by phone and email, but readily accessible by SMS text, iMessage, WhatsApp, Signal chat, or other secure platform of your choice. And, I do live video meetings via Zoom, Microsoft Teams, Google Meet, Skype, WhatsApp, FaceTime, Signal, Facebook video chat and, soon, Facebook Portal. Your choice.
