Our Firm Helps You Prepare for Business Growth and Success
What makes our firm different is that we were built with the needs of growing businesses in mind. Just because you can’t afford or don’t need in-house General Counsel, doesn’t mean you don’t need counsel.
We are that counsel.
We understand you are BUSY, you are growing, you are planning for a business of prosperity and you value ease, convenience and efficiency. You want to know you’ve made the best decisions for your business and that you’ve got all the business details handled so you can be as creative and expansive as possible.
That is our focus as well. We’ve developed unique systems to give you access to a Family Business Lawyer™ as was previously only available to the likes of Google, Facebook, and Zappos so you can have the guidance you need to build a business of meaning, significance and serious profitability.
We encourage communication with our clients. In fact, we’ve thrown out the time clocks so you never have to be afraid to call with a quick question. Everything we do is billed on a flat-fee, monthly basis, agreed to in advance, so there are never any surprises.
We have a whole team to serve you. When you call our office to ask your quick question, you won’t have to wait hours or days for a phone call back. You’ll get your question answered, right away. And, if you need to schedule a more in-depth legal or strategic call with your personal lawyer, a call will be scheduled when you're both available and ready for the call so we can make the very best use of your time and not waste your time by leaving voicemail after voicemail back and forth.
And we monitor your business activities on a regular basis (determined by the planning level chosen with our firm) so we can be proactive about ensuring deals are documented, business moves forward, new ideas are protected, new hires have agreements in place and your company is always in order.
We’ve created unique membership programs to keep your legal, insurance, financial and tax affairs up to date month in and month out as well as give you access to our Trusted Team of Legal Experts for guidance on ANY legal or financial matter.
Here’s the way we look at it, one day you will need a lawyer. I don’t know why and I don’t know when, but when you do, you will be grateful you can call on us and we’ll be here to advise you or get you out of a jam.
Lastly, we don’t just take care of your business now – we make sure it will be a valuable asset that continues to create wealth for your family after you are gone with Business Succession Planning. This is what true legacy is all about.
Many business lawyers overlook this most important of issues, important to your family at least.
One day, you will either want to sell your business or you will want to pass it on to your loved ones so that they are taken care of by what you’ve built.
Businesses built right are built with this in mind. And that’s exactly what we help you do – build a business that can run without you one day.
And that means you can take vacation, retire, or pass your business on to your family and know it will continue to bring in money, serve your clients and benefit everyone who comes into contact with it.
And really, what could be better than that? I mean, ultimately, it is why you are in business, right?
We’ve developed several tools that allows us to support you to start, grow and prepare for sale or inheritance a business that deeply serves the world, your clients and your life. I can’t go into all of the details here, but we’ll definitely talk about when you meet with us.
We look forward to seeing you and caring for your business soon!
Belia A. Peña, Esq.
P.S. – if you think this all sounds like it’s going to be expensive, well, you are right and you’re wrong. I can guarantee you that if you qualify to meet with a Family Business Lawyer™, that your overall fees will be substantially less costly than it would be for your family, partner or clients if you or a key partner or client died without handling these matters or if your business gets in a jam without these things being taken care of.
