Most of my clients are independent business people. Some have been real estate brokers, construction contractors, dentists, psychiatrists, chiropractors. Some have owned and operated gas stations and beauty salons. Others have included an inventor of cocktails for diabetics, a manufacturer of golf clubs, and a promoter of golf tournaments.
Most of these clients needrd contracts to be drafted and negotiated. Some required enforcement through mediation, arbitration or the court system. Others needed a business entity formed to protect their personal assets.
My experience includes more than 30 years as a practicing lawyer in San Diego County, and more than 20 years in business, including owning and operating a retail electronics store, service station and tire store.
You can put my business and legal experience to work for you. Give me a call or send me an email to set up a free, half-hour consultation. If you have a business problem, I know I can help find a solution.
Hourly ($200-250/hour), contingent (15-40%)
