Our practice is 100% dedicated to small businesses.  We help our clients with contracts, negotiations, entity formations, company restructuring, ownership issues, trademarks, technology licensing and development, commercial leases, business purchases, and many other types of business transactions.  

 

We focus our practice on small businesses because we like helping owners and entrepreneurs.  We understand that small business owners need a business attorney on their advisory team that they can count on from project to project.  

 

Our pricing structure is centered around flat fee projects.  We do no hourly billing.  We have heard from clients over the years that flat fees are the preferred way to pay for legal services.  Call for a complementary initial consultation to see how we can help.

5 Star Business Attorney
I hired Laurie to provide legal advice to the business aspects of my law practice. Her process to work through the issues was very thorough and her advice was extremely helpful. I appreciated that she charged a flat fee, which I felt was quite reasonable. I will use her services again and highly recommend her.

Absolutely the BEST attorney in JAX!
Laurie Lee is the quintessential small business attorney. I was moving to JAX and she helped me every step of the way to make my life easier in purchasing a new business and lease negotiation. Her use of technology and response time are like no other I have experienced. I would recommend her with the utmost confidence.

Absolutely the BEST attorney in JAX!
Laurie Lee is the most efficient and responsive attorney I have ever encountered. My wife and I recently moved to JAX and bought a business. We found her on the internet and were glad we did. Her business knowledge and use of technology created a streamlined process. I have been in business over 30 years and never engaged a more professional, knowledgeable and efficient attorney as Laurie Lee. I would recommend her highly for all your business needs.

Great Legal Mind
Laurie has done a great job fixing my mistakes from when I "played" lawyer, and she has help protect our small company with some great legal work. She also has the patience to take us through the legal complications so we have a stronger understanding.

Epitome of Legal Professionalism
I hired Ms. Lee to represent my law firm in a merger of professional associations. As a lawyer myself, I have high expectations regarding the service to be provided. Ms. Lee met all of them, and exceeded most. She is knowledgeable, thorough, and precise. In corporate transactions where anticipation of future problems is crucial, Ms. Lee is exceptional. Not forgotten is the level of patience she showed me as I asked constant questions. Not only will I recommend her, but I will return to her as needs arise. I won't go anywhere else.

Laurie Lee : Better Than Bastiat, Daniel Webster, and F. Lee Bailey all in one
Laurie Lee has attended many legal matters for my corporations. She is efficacious and expedient. It has been our great pleasure in having her as a collegue. If a matterr arrises that warrants legal advice or action , Laurie Lee is the first person I call. Her adroit knowledge of the law and general demeanor make her an asset that would be valuable in any bailiwick. If i had to attend procedings in a courtroom Laurie Lee is who I would want as my council.
