Ask any creative professional in the Seattle area who they go to for legal advice and they'll send you to Mark Jordan.
I recently transitioned from freelancing to running a full-time design studio, and needed to get my paperwork up to speed. Mark quickly assessed the situation and tailored next steps for my business. Together, we drafted a creative services agreement, independent contractor agreement, statement of work and change order form.
I contacted several other lawyers before choosing to work with Mark. What convinced me were his spotless reputation, warm demeanor and specialized experience working with creatives.
Mark is easy to talk to, detail-oriented, down-to-earth and yet down-to-business. I don't know how he does it, but he actually makes drafting legal paperwork fun. I love that I can contact him at any time with any question—big or small.
I feel so much better knowing that my studio, creative work and contractors are protected. Thanks to Mark, I feel more confident bidding on RFPs and fishing for bigger and better clients. His work has given my studio a competitive advantage; when my clients see how carefully we've prepared their paperwork, they know that we're worth every penny. And so is Mark.

I hired Mark when I was ready to take my business to the next level. Local content provider who registered an LLC online without knowing ONE THING.
Had Mark review my registration & he...in a 30minute phone call...
*Talked about reasonable proposed solution/s, actions
*Was candid about time, timing & fees
*Took on the bulk of the work, while explaining the tasks in plain, non-legal, speak
*Pointed out my errors without making me feel stupid or lame... he's really good at this part...always directing toward the solution.
Extremely positive experience.
I've already referred him to a client of mine.
I trust him enough to share him/his services with my own roster of clients. That's my reputation because I'm looking for the best for my own clients. I referred Mark Jordan in a heartbeat. And I'll do it again.
Got my attorney for life. Solid.

We met with Mark before knowing if his expertise matched our needs. Mark efficiently answered our questions and gave us an understanding of his strengths as an attorney and how he could assist us with our business.

I recently had the opportunity to resolve a business dispute with Mark, who represented one of the owners. His expertise allowed the parties to quickly negotiate and focus on the best opportunity for a reasonable out of court resolution. I highly recommend Mark to anyone needing help in the area of business law.
