About Me

Serving small businesses, nonprofits & individuals since 2001.
Helping you navigate today's complex legal environment.



Hi, I'm Una Lee Jost, the owner and principal attorney of Jost Legal. I believe it's in the best interests of all businesses and nonprofit organizations to have regular access to strategic legal advice to protect you and your organization, and avoid expensive mistakes and litigation. That's why big businesses often employ a full-time attorney on staff to serve as their General Counsel (or even an entire team of attorneys) to provide ongoing legal advice. They know that even one negative result from a lawsuit can wipe out their organization and all their time and money invested.


As a California licensed attorney since 2001, I've been employed as in-house legal counsel for a nonprofit university as well as litigator for downtown Los Angeles law firms defending public entities, big businesses, and others. Since starting my own practice in 2010, I now spend my time providing the same high quality services at accessible rates to small businesses and nonprofit organizations. As a daughter of immigrant small business owners, I know you deserve easy access to quality legal counsel just as much as big businesses do.


Running a small business or nonprofit organization is hard enough without having to also become a legal expert! Whether it be starting up a business or nonprofit, or dealing with any one of a myriad of daily legal issues facing the business or social entrepreneur, I've made it my mission to serve as your legal counselor and confidante in helping you navigate today's complex legal environment.


I'm honored to be entrusted with providing legal services to the talented and giving visionaries I work with, and make it a priority to provide personal attention to each of my clients, timely and dependable legal advice, and creative, results-oriented solutions. By utilizing me as your outside General Counsel to take care of the legal end of things, you'll be freed up to focus on what matters to you most - growing your business, ministry or organization!


What I love most about my job: Coming alongside visionaries and helping them structure the legal framework to enable them to focus on pursuing their passions.


Please feel free to contact me today to schedule an initial consultation. I'm happy to connect with you to learn about your legal needs, determine how I may be of service to you, and provide you with a customized proposal.
