Here's to the creative ones.
People have all kinds of reasons for starting a business.
Maybe you've got a great idea for a new invention. Maybe you don't feel appreciated in your day job. Maybe you've got a business background and have become a serial entrepreneur.
Or maybe—just maybe—you're so passionate about what you do that you can't help but create a business around it.
Sound familiar? If so, you're in the right place.
Hi, I'm Joey, and I'm an attorney for creatives.
I used to feel like I had no control. I wore a suit-and-tie lawyer costume to the office. As a litigation attorney, I was always in the middle of conflicts. It wasn't a great fit for me. After graduation, I felt stuck in a career that would limit my creativity.
A growing need to defend my own creativity challenged me to change my perspective. I could finally see a path where I embraced my creativity and authenticity with success.
Now, I celebrate my creative side. I've taken back control of my life by dedicating it to helping creatives as their legal partner.
The reality is—protecting your business only matters if it’s successful.
I'm seeking out entrepreneurs who are embracing their creative side. I work with them as they transition from employee to self-employed to business owner.
I get it. Your business wasn't exactly planned. You're not really a fan of the "business side" of the business. You're excited but terrified. You've got undeniable skills, but you still feel like you have to prove yourself to be taken seriously.
And, as if there wasn't enough on your plate already, you've got all this legal stuff to worry about.
I'll help you protect your passion.
I work with creatives to put legal shields around the company. I help my clients identify the big "legal holes" in their business. The truth is that most creative businesses don't need sophisticated legal help. They just need their bases covered, whether that means forming an LLC, registering a trademark, or providing your business with basic legal documents.
But I protect more than just your business. I protect your mindset.
By providing a foundational level of legal protection for your business, I'll give you peace of mind on the legal side so you can focus on innovating. Imagine how much more you could get done—and how relieved you'd feel—if there was someone to take all your legal concerns off your plate.
My expertise revolves around helping creatives entrepreneurs succeed. I provide compassionate, dependable, and affordable legal services through flat-fee packages and subscription plans.
