I am a business owner and small business lawyer. My first business involved manufacturing a product and distributing it across the US. After about two years, I had my products in 100 retailers nationwide. I used to exhibit at trade shows In New York and Atlanta and meeting other independent business owners and talking with them was how I really got inspired to create my own law firm dedicated to helping other small business owners.
I now own a kitchen and gourmet shop in the Manayunk section of Philadelphia. I buy a ton of goods from local Philly makers and love helping the talented entrepreneurs in this area.
When I'm not busy running my businesses, taking care of my two small kids or running after two geriatric pugs, I write about small business issues on my blog at www.phillysmallbusinesslawyer.com and at www.howtostartmysmallbusiness.com.

Although new to Avvo it is evident that the answers of Ms. Holmes are accurate, analytic, and customized to the needs of the Avvo askers. These are exactly the qualities that every client would look for when hiring an attorney.
