About Me

I come to Fort Point Legal having started my own practice out of law school and served the small business, startup, and artist community in that role since 2009. I have experience structuring organizations from formation to dissolution, negotiating, drafting, and revising the contracts that make businesses tick, and litigating disputes when relationships break down. I'm also the resident intellectual property nerd, helping businesses leverage copyright, trademark, and trade secret protections to develop their products, grow their brands, and be successful in the marketplace.

    I've had the opportunity to work along side Attorney Ayr. He is knowledgeable, hardworking, and genuine. He gets great results for his clients, and is truly an asset to the legal profession. I highly recommend him.

  • Justin M. Murphy

    Attorney Ayr is driven and compassionate for the needs of his clients. Steve and I have helped pro bono clients at the lawyer for the day table in Housing Court and I am always impressed by Steve's ability to connect and understand client needs. Whenever I need legal insight for landlord-tenant or business/corporate matters, Steve is a trusted opinion.
