STRATEGIC LEGAL ADVICE FOR CREATIVE ENTREPRENEURS, SMALL BUSINESSES, AND NONPROFITS.

Services

How can we help you succeed?

Business Formation

Starting something new?  We can help you set it up.  From partnerships, limited liability companies, corporations, to nonprofits, we can walk you through the process and help get you to your launch.

Nonprofit Law

It can be a challenge to navigate and comply with all of the legal requirements for tax-exempt organizations.  From corporate governance to lobbying, fundraising, organizational policies and procedures, reporting, grantmaking, and beyond, we can help take the worry out of compliance, so your nonprofit can focus on fulfilling its mission.

Corporate Law

You’ve got your business up and running, but there are ongoing corporate governance issues to deal with.  Need help with your corporate meeting minutes and resolutions, updating bylaws, or amending your operating agreement? 
We can provide it.

Business Transactions

Vendor contracts, independent contractor agreements, non-disclosure agreements, licensing agreements, partnership agreements – these are just a few common examples of contracts that you may need to operate and protect your organization or business.  We can help draft, review, and negotiate on your behalf and make sure you understand what you’re signing.

Special Projects

You’re working on exciting things and we want to help. Planning an event? We can review venue and vendor contracts, assess insurance needs, manage risk, and even help keep it sustainable. Conducting a social media contest? We can draft the official rules and help navigate the laws that regulate sweepstakes, contests, and lotteries. Producing a video?  We can help ensure that your content is properly licensed and cleared.

Outside General Counsel

Your organization or company is growing and has more consistent legal needs.  For a flat monthly fee, we can serve as your go-to outside general counsel and provide you with guidance to meet your day-to-day legal needs.

PRICING

We understand that nonprofits and small businesses operate on a tight budget.  Hourly legal fees can add up to an unexpectedly large legal bill, which can be problematic for budgeting and your bottom line.  That’s why we offer reasonable hourly rates, flat-rate quotes, and payment plans for our services.  Contact us to receive a quote today.

And happy year of the Rat!  It is said that people born in the year of the Rat are quick-witted, resourceful, and smart but lack courage. With rich imaginations and sharp observations, they can take advantage of various opportunities well.  In Chinese culture, rats represent working diligently and thriftiness, so people born in a Rat year are thought to be wealthy and prosperous.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

  • Reminder! 🗓 If your business had employees or independent contractors during the last tax year, the business will need to issue and submit some annual tax-related documents by January 31.
.
👩🏽‍💼👨🏻‍💼 Employees.  The deadline for issuing Forms W-2 to your employees and filing them with the Social Security Administration is January 31.  Form W-2 is a “wage and tax statement” that shows the amount of income and taxes withheld from the employees’ paycheck for the year and is used to file federal and state income tax returns.  Don’t be late to file: penalties start at $50 per late return if you are less than 30 days late.  The later you are, the more the penalties – yikes!
.
📑🖊 Independent Contractors. The deadline for issuing Form 1099-MISC to your independent contractors and non-employees and filing them with the Internal Revenue Service is January 31.  Form 1099-MISC is used by contractors and non-employees to report income and any taxes withheld from “miscellaneous” income earned by the contractor or non-employee from a business.  Business are required to issue a 1099-MISC if they paid a contractor or non-employee $600 or more over the course of the year.  Same penalties apply for late filings as for W-2s, so make sure you meet the deadline!

  • “Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly. I can never be what I ought to be until you are what you ought to be. This is the interrelated structure of reality.” - Martin Luther King Jr.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Community is wonderful and I’m so thankful that I get to be a part of the DC community.  Since I started my practice just over two years ago, I’ve had a chance to get to know the DC in so many new and different ways.  We are all linked together – directly or indirectly – and are responsible for lifting each other up.  What a great reminder from a transformative figure.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

  • This quote makes me think of Dory from the movie “Finding Nemo.” She faced some challenges, but she just “kept swimming” with the same level of enthusiasm.  Don’t we need to just be unphased by failure sometimes?  It’s easier said than done, but what else can we do but keep swimming... errr... walking?  We just need to keep up the enthusiasm for where we’re headed. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
