In her career, Allison has defended businesses from consumer, State of Ohio, and State of Michigan actions. Allison also serves as general counsel for many of her Clients.

Do you have a great idea or passion you want to turn into a business? Awesome! We would love to hear about it and help you get it off the ground! We help clients determine the proper entity type, complete the appropriate forms with the state and federal government, and draft the operating agreement. Once the Client is ready to operate, we work with Clients to negotiate vendor contracts or draft contracts for the Client to use with its customers. We also help clients think about the other “non-legal” stuff too, like finding insurance and a good accountant. If you are looking to start a new business, give us a call!
Did you receive a customer complaint? From the BBB? Attorney General? Secretary of State? Local Court? It is so important to respond to these complaints quickly and appropriately. It is tally the easiest and cheapest opportunity a business will have to resolve the dispute. We work with our clients on strategies to resolve minor complaints before they become big and expensive. Other times, we step in to resolve the dispute for our Client. It all depends on where the dispute is in formality and our Client’s preference. In all situations, we provide our Clients the tools to ensure that it will resolve the dispute for good. If you need help with a customer dispute, we are here to help!
Are you hiring your first employee? Have you thought about all you need to do aside from finding the right person? You need to set up payroll, register for workers compensation coverage, create an employee manual, put up Department of Labor posters in the office, and so much more. We help our Client’s navigate all of the requirements, plus create policies and procedures that work for the company. We also review and edit these policies and procedures from time to time to keep up with things like the advent of social media and medical marijuana. If you are hiring your first employee or need to update your policies, let’s chat and see if we can help!
