Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $100

I have spent 3 decades in the international field. I attended Georgetown University's School of Foreign Service, lived in Asia for 4 years, London for 1 year, and have traveled to Sweden, Italy, Nigeria, El Salvador, and the Caribbean on business. My travels, language skills (Spanish, French, Cebuano, Cambodian, some comprehension of Italian, Portuguese, German, and Tagalog), and international contacts give me a world perspective that allows me to solve legal issues and compose legal documents that take those international legal principles...

Service Description

I love working for people who need a good, fair attorney whose quality of work is more than her fees. I love helping start-ups, believing that just because you are a small business, you're a business nevertheless and should be treated accordingly. That means you need to have documents that give your business an air of legitimacy. The fact that you may be a sole proprietor or an LLC of one person doesn't mean that you don't operate like a corporeal entity with legal protections.

In addition to my legal skills, I own a business plan writing company that has garnered $13M+ for companies seeking VC or federal grant assistance. I have my own editor, and financial analyst who puts practical financial documents together. I pay them from my fees, rather than pass those costs on to you.

I care about feedback and work to earn your respect.
