Hi, I’m Autumn. I’m an experienced lawyer who helps high-achieving and ambitious entrepreneurs reach their big goals, faster and smarter.
Ready to make a meaningful impact with your business? We work with the leaders of the most dynamic businesses in the new economy, including, to name just a few:
• Being Boss
• Boss Mom
• Mary Beth Storjohann of Workable Wealth
• Reina Pomeroy of Reina + Co.

The Law Office of Autumn Witt Boyd is the go-to law firm for creative and online business owners.
We love helping businesses as their general counsel, meeting regularly to give guidance and focused decisionmaking, proactively, as a key advisor for the executive team.
We have special expertise in protecting brands, by registering trademarks and copyrights, and advising clients on intellectual property matters.
We also work with businesses to get started on the right foot, create airtight contracts, and understand their legal issues in plain English.
YOUR LEGAL PARTNER
If you’re looking for the best law firm in the online space, you’re in the right place. My support team and I are ready to give you strategic legal advice, so you can stop worrying and focus on building the business of your dreams.
We’re not the lowest-priced law firm serving online entrepreneurs, although we do think we provide the best value.
Any lawyer can set up an LLC or draft a contract, and you can hire LegalZoom to file a trademark registration application. But we’re not just order takers.
Where we stand out is providing high-level counsel to business owners. We ask a lot of questions and really take the time to get to know you, your business, and the mark you want to make on the world.
When you come to us for a new contract, for example, we don’t just create the contract you think you need. We help you figure out what kind of contract you really need to accomplish your end goal (if you actually need one at all), how to use it, navigate any negotiations, learn when you might need to change it, and tell you potential problems to watch out for. We’ll also help you decide what to do when an issue you never could have predicted comes up. And, of course, we’ll also write a great contract for you.
This is our approach for every client and every legal issue.
