Richmond SCORE

Thanks for visiting from the Richmond SCORE website.  I have enjoyed volunteering as a legal speaker for Richmond SCORE for the last ten years or so.  I think that SCORE is a very valuable resource for entrepreneurs just getting started as well as for business owners expanding and considering different growth strategies. 

I specialize in business law.  I am a business owner myself and have held a number of positions, both business and legal roles, in companies of different sizes and stages.  While I have served in typical legal positions as General Counsel for companies, I have also lead business development, sales, and marketing departments.  I think this business experience, in addition to my legal experience, gives me a unique vantage point on the issues you will face as you start and run your business.

For those individuals that are referred to me from SCORE, I offer a free telephone consultation to discuss your situation and whether I may be able to assist you.  From choosing the best legal entity (corporation,LLC, or other) to dealing with contracts,commercial leases, employment matters, and other day to day business legal matters, give me a call or send me an email to discuss how I may be able to help you.  If you would like legal advice, I offer a consultation service to answer your specific business legal questions for a discounted flat fee.

I encourage you to look around my website and read the articles I have written to help entrepreneurs.  I also write and maintain aVirginia business law blog that you may find interesting.  If you would like to learn more about me, you can read more here or, of course, just give me a call directly at 804-290-7990.

I look forward to hearing from you.
