In the over 4 years I worked with Michael, he brought an exemplary level of professionalism, insight and dedication, to both his job and the company. He has always been a highly intelligent, driven, and passionate person, who always gets the job done, no matter how difficult. Michael’s ability to drive for solutions in a high pressure work environment makes him an invaluable member of any team. I would recommend him for any job or project, knowing he would surpass expectations.

When you open your own business you do it with the knowledge that you offer an area of expertise that you will be able to deliver to your clients. Whether your business is web design, floral arraignments, white collar or blue, or in my case animal care, your company's future is dependent upon your competence in your field.
Just having a plan or design for your business is not enough. You need someone with the experience and knowledge to help you build and protect your company from the ground up. That person is Michael Colodney. He starts with your intellectual property, your company name, your slogans, and your websites. The things that are going to project your company to your clients. "Does someone else already own the name? Can I legally use that slogan? Is my logo infringing on someone else's intellectual property?" These issues can very well decide the future of your business.
Michael will help guide you through filing with your state business bureau, obtaining your EIN, and other business requisites dictated by state and federal government. What insurance you may need. What your levels of liability are. Remember, what you don't know here will not kill you, but it may kill your company.
Trademarks, copyrights, contracts, EIN filings, how and if your company should be incorporated, registration with the Department of the Treasury, insurance and liability issues, and more. This looks like a run on sentence but it is not. It is a small portion of the issues of starting a business that Michael helped me with.
I can not state this more emphatically: I consider Michael's knowledge and guidance to be one of the greatest assets my company has ever had. He has protected myself and my company. He has defended my intellectual property. He has crafted contracts that allow me to do what I do best, run my business.
You may think that you can do all of this on your own. You may think that you don't need to this at all, that you are too small or that you can always do it later. Remember, part of the reason that you go into business for yourself is that dream of owning your own company, that you want to make your own future. Don't let that dream die because you started off wrong.
You want your clients to trust in your expertise, I was fortunate to trust in Michael's.

M3 Media has had the pleasure of working with Michael many times and his relentless effort to protect the interest of the company is second to none. Michael has an unusually high acumen for grasping anything you throw at him. He makes careful and thoughful assessments to help you decide direction and position with great clarity and comfort for all parties involved.
It's always a joy to work with someone that understands the balance of safe (Legally) marketing with the need to get results.
