Frequently Asked Questions

Is it really unlimited phone/email access to you?

Yes, and yes. If you have a question – contact me. Even if you have a lot of questions! It is included in your subscription plan.

What if I want to meet with you?

Great! I think it’s important to meet with your attorney face to face and check-in. In every plan I offer, I include face to face meeting times. We can also do video meetings.

Can you work remotely?

Since I opened my practice over 5 years ago, I have accepted online credit/debit card payments through LawPay. LawPay now offers e-check as an option, and I added that to my options as well. The client does not pay for these convenience features. I have also long offered digital signing of documents when possible, and am fully equipped to securely exchange documents with clients online. Phone and video conferencing are always an option. For video conferencing I primarily use Zoom.

How much does it cost?

We first have a conversation about your business – your needs, your goals, size, and ongoing issues. I then create a proposal for you based on my assessment of what needs to be done on a monthly basis. If you are ready to move forward, you sign a fee agreement. A typical plan for a small business owner with no or 1-5 employees or contractors would be $275/month.

Can I cancel the subscription?

Of course. If at any time you aren’t sure how to use your plan or have questions on what you should be doing – ask me! I’m happy to give suggestions and ideas for how we can best work together for the benefit of your business. If it just isn’t working for you, we’ll cancel it.

Does the subscription cover all areas of law?

No. I have a boutique law firm where I focus primarily on business, employment, estate planning, and probate. If you have a legal issue that I feel would be best addressed by a different type of attorney, I will connect you with referrals. I address in the proposal and fee agreement the areas that are included, as well as what is not included.

Why and when did you start offering this option?

For the last 5 years, I have offered business owners flexible options, such as flat rates for documents when feasible, and flat rates by the half-day and day, including on-site at the business. I spent several months in 2019 thinking and researching other ways to best serve my business owner clients. I had too many people waiting too long to call me about an issue because they were concerned about costs and traditional lawyer hourly billing. I decided to try and solve that problem by offering this option. If you have a question – call me. It’s not an additional charge outside your subscription. I began offering this option in January 2020.

Does the subscription work for every client?

No. I think this is a great option for a business owner who wants an ongoing relationship with his or her attorney and wants to be proactive to address problems on a continual basis. It does require the client to remember to use the plan, but it’s not difficult! When we start working together, we create a list of projects and issues to be addressed and triage them each month. When questions come up, contact me. I can’t make you use the plan though. For clients who want to work together only on an as-needed basis, that’s fine too. I still offer more traditional retainer and hourly billing options as well as flat rates when possible.

Are there any other benefits to signing up?

Yes. I offer a business start-up package as well for the true start-up business owner. I also offer a reduced hourly rate for your estate planning needs while you are on a business subscription plan.

Also – if you think you have an area that could be a package – ask me and we’ll talk about it!
