EXPRESS LEGAL CONSULTATION
30 minutes | $179
Ready to give your business a quick jumpstart or tune-up? When you choose an initial Express Legal Consultation to discuss your legal issue, you'll receive an overview of how Business Law Group can help resolve the problem or advance your interests. You'll come away from this session with a clear understanding of what your issue entails from a legal perspective, with legal advice on the best way to proceed in your situation. (Our consultations are never sales pitches!)
You'll leave your Express Legal Consultation knowing:
- Where your legal matter or issue falls under the law. Very often, a complex legal issue involves several areas of the law, so you should be aware of each one and how they intersect to make the best business decisions.
- Your best options for resolving your legal matter
- Our advice on the smartest, most cost-effective way to proceed and solve your problem.
COMPLETE LIFT STRATEGY SESSION
1 hour | $349
Do you want to develop a savvy, long-term legal strategy for your business to make sure you enjoy optimal legal leverage? We'll begin our LIFT Strategy Session by identifying your key legal, insurance, financial and tax issues (that's where we get “LIFT”). Then, we'll develop a smart strategy to maximize your legal leverage for yourself or your business going forward.
These on-demand sessions are the best fit for:
- Entrepreneurs who want to take a proactive approach to their business
- Business owners who are making plans to sell and exit your business, and want to optimize the process by addressing any legal issues prior to marketing their business for sale.
Our LIFT Strategy Sessions guide you, step by step, through every aspect of your business that requires legal attention. You'll leave each power-punch session with a strategic, actionable plan tailored to your business.

When you book a Legal Lease Review, we'll spend 60 minutes laser-focused on:
- Your specific lease agreement

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Why would I pay for a legal consultation with you? I thought lawyers usually give free consultations.
Answer: Want the reality? A “free' legal consultation typically will be a sales pitch for an attorney or paralegal to sell you on hiring their firm and paying them a large retainer, usually between $2,500 to $5,000. If you book a “free” consultation, you won't actually get any specific legal advice. Instead, these meetings are designed to warm you up to the firm (and a large retainer). Frankly, we believe this approach is a waste of your time and ours.
We want to attract clients who see the value in superior legal advice that's delivered quickly—without haggling over a large retainer. That's why we use a flat-fee model when possible and give legal advice from the outset of our relationship. Regardless of whether you decide to engage us to continue advising you on your matter, you'll come away from our session with valuable knowledge and best steps to proceed.
Why do you host your consultations virtually?
Answer: Our typical client is a busy entrepreneur. Within the last year especially, we've all come to see virtual consultations as a convenient (and yes, modern) way to accommodate those who don't always have time to be physically present at an office. We use the latest technology and communication methods to work when you work, so you don't have to waste time commuting. Hard-working entrepreneurs need flexibility, so we offer our legal services whether you're near or far.
If you prefer an in-person meeting, we're happy to accommodate you, depending on our attorneys' availability and schedule. Please email [email protected] to make in-person arrangements.
What if I schedule this consult and there's no way for a Business Law Group attorney to help me?
Answer: No, that won't happen. We don't accept clients for initial legal consultations who don't fit into our core practice areas. We'll only confirm and accept your legal consult if you're a good fit for our attorneys' areas of expertise and we believe we can address your situation. Of course, we want to become your trusted legal advisor and our expertise is wide, but there are always some limitations. For example, we don't handle most family law matters or criminal matters, so we don't accept legal consults for those practice areas. We will, however, send you a list of local attorney referral partners we're proud to recommend if we can't assist you in your matter.
Can you take my case on a contingency fee basis?
Answer: Most likely, no. We do accept some employee-side employment law matters on a contingency basis, if we believe the employee has a demonstratively good case. Since we're committed civil rights advocates, our ideal employee client understands that the odds are stacked against him or her—and is truthful, compelling, responsive and resolved to enter into battle alongside us.
Our favorite employee cases address:
- Unequal pay for women
- Sexual harassment
- Retaliation for reporting any of the above.
If you'd like your employment case to be considered by our firm, please complete our intake questionnaire. We'll waive the initial consult fee for any potential client who submits the intake questionnaire to have us review your case. In the event that we can't take your employment law case on a contingency basis, we can offer a reduced hourly rate and/or advise you on how to handle the matter pro se (on your own in court).
