An initial consultation with our San Diego business lawyers is usually 30-60 minutes. After learning more about you, your situation and, if business related, your company, we will briefly touch on potential options for potential solutions and next steps for solving the problem.
Remember, the main thing we need to know is your story and situation. Do not worry if you’re unsure about the legalities of the situation or how to move forward, that is what we are here for.
It’s always a good idea to bring in any documentation related to the issue you are coming in to discuss. For example, if you want contract help, bring the contract. If you do not have any paperwork or documentation, that is okay. Know it is still totally fine to come into our San Diego lawyers office without it. If unsure of what you need, that is something we can always help with during our consult.
To form a business entity, such as an LLC, the overall process typically takes about one month from the day you say, “Let’s do this!”
For a contract, we usually get the first draft out within one to two weeks. After that, the date of final delivery mostly depends on how quickly and how many revisions the client follows up with.
It’s important to consider legal guidance as soon as you decide to start a business. The concern is that if you do not get help early, it could cost you more trying to fix it later. Our goal is to help protect you as soon as possible. Whether you are interested in a trademark attorney in San Diego, intellectual property attorney in San Diego or a lawyer to help form an LLC, the sooner you to look to one - the better.
We have an attorney on staff who specializes in trademarks and copyrights but not patents.
A copyright is more for creative types of work – aka works that are the product itself.
A trademark is for business purposes – aka the work promotes the product or describes the product - like a logo or business name, used in commerce.
For these types of cases, payment is on a contingency fee basis. This means that the client doesn’t pay anything up front. Our legal fees are paid off of a percentage of the final settlement or judgment.
The timeline varies dramatically case by case. It depends on your unique situation and factors. To get the best estimate, the first step is to reach out to our San Diego lawyers and book a consult.
If you are unsure, it’s probably best to come in and speak with an employment litigation attorney. Too often, we see these types of issues are pushed off again and again - until something really bad happens. It’s also common for people to try and fight this battle alone. This is a complex issue, legally and personally. If there is any question at all – you should come in, and let’s discuss.
