I’ve practiced law in Alaska since 1997. I’ve worked in law firms and as in-house counsel for large corporations. I started Vellum LLC in 2011. Why start a new company? Because there’s a much better way to provide legal services to Alaska’s small businesses and nobody else was doing it. So I redesigned the law firm from the ground up so that small businesses like yours can have a legal department like the big guys.

We highly recommend Vellum!
Our company has been using Vellum LLC for almost 5 years now. The service provided by Vellum has added value to our team at a price we can afford. We think of Vellum as our "legal department". I highly recommend this service to small businesses that have normal or average legal (LLC paperwork, bi-annual filings, contracts, copyrights, employee handbooks, etc) needs.

Andrew is great!
I met Andrew during a workshop hosted at UAA on LLCs. He was very informative and approachable! My business partner and I decided to use Andrew as we established our new business, and we are glad we did. Andrew has been always easy to understand, easy to talk to, and he knows his stuff! We are continuing to use his services as we move forward with our small business, and would definitely recommend him to any small business looking for a law professional!

Fantastic Experience!
I highly recommend Vellum LLC! I've been working with Andrew Mitton for a little over 2 years now and I am so incredibly thankful for him and his company. He has helped me have less stress since I know that I can call or email him anytime to ask any legal question I have and I'm not gonna get an hourly bill for it. It's really nice calling him and knowing there's not a timer ticking in the background. Thank you Andrew! You are great at what you do and I look forward to continuing to send more clients your way!

Outstanding Business Attorney
VELLUM, LLC is an outstanding resource. Andrew provides candid business legal advice and unparalleled peace of mind. My monthly Vellum expense is one of the few I never question. I truly appreciate having Andrew in my corner.

Andrew's Inside-Out Legal Services for Small Business is Great!
I've really enjoyed working with Andrew since the pre-formation stage of our business. He was a tremendous help when we were forming our business, applying for our business license, developing an employee handbook, etc... and offered a lot of VALUE. I'm glad that we've continued to use his "inside-out legal services" for the last 5 years. Again, the VALUE provided can't be beat!
