We have experience in licensing applications, FTC and FDA compliance, SEC matters, HR issues and employee rights, and the specific nature of Network Mmarketing Laws and Direct Sale Regulations.

MISSION, VISION, VALUES
Our Mission is to provide trusted, professional legal services and strategic advice to assist our clients in their personal and business matters. Our Firm is committed to delivering efficient and cost-effective legal services with a focus on communication, responsiveness, and attention to detail. We work with clients in a collaborative, proactive way to understand their objectives, resolve any and all current issues, and anticipate and prevent future problems. In order to help our Clients achieve their Estate Planning and Business Goals, we provide expert legal counsel in a knowledgeable and compassionate manner creating measurable value for our clients through the unique application of holistic, innovative, socially responsive, consistent and dependable services.
Our Vision is to be the preeminent Elite Boutique Law Firm building on our reputation by fulfilling the needs of our Clients in an individual, holistic, and personal way. How to achieve that Vision begins and ends with self-awareness.
If you attempt to find and understand your own Vision, a discovery that is absolutely necessary for success, you must reflect upon the WHY of what you do and what you are actually trying to achieve.
The methodology to realize that Vision can be best described as “Strategic Preeminence.” All legal knowledge and business focus must be imbued to the fullest with a mind-set that places all planning and tactical elements in perspective and within an overall strategic plan of action that has one single purpose, i.e., to fulfill that Vision.
Thus, “Strategic Preeminence” is achieved when you build a business within a present state of “Client Preeminence.”
From this Vision and out of this WHY, you must then focus your energy on the Client, i.e., the individual, the person, and his or her needs. It follows, therefore, that to achieve your Vision and true success, you must dedicate your business purpose to the protection, guidance, satisfaction and happiness of your Clients.
Therefore, you must treat all “Customers” as “Clients.” What is the distinction?
The Customer wants something from you.
The Client wants to share something with you.
You sell something to Customers.
You provide services and share something with Clients.
You focus on selling to a Customer.
You focus on serving the Client.
The Customer merely buys something from you.
The Client seeks advice and solutions, and an affiliation with you.
Your relationship with a Customer is neutral.
Your relationship with a Client is qualitative.
You sympathize with Customers.
You empathize with Clients.
You are the Customer’s salesperson.
You are the Client’s Advocate.
The Customer has a short-term economic relationship with you.
The Client has a long-term protective and loyal relationship with you.
Customers come and go.
Clients seek a life-long personal association.
In the end, you must be the Client’s Advocate, Colleague, Patron, Sponsor, Protector, and Counselor.
Wal-Mart has Customers.
We have Clients.
