I’ve heard it all.
Lawyers are intimidating.
They’re so unrelatable.
They don’t understand me or my business.
And they’re so darn expensive.
These are the common complaints I hear from folks about working with a lawyer. And let’s not forget all the bad lawyer jokes too….
Well, I’m spilling the beans. In this episode, I’m sharing what you need to know before you hire a lawyer - things like fee structures, costs, questions you need to ask - as well as breaking down the law into the five topic areas you need to be thinking about as you start and grow your business.
