As a creative entrepreneur, having Shay on my team has allowed me to focus more on what I enjoy most: the creative aspects of my business. 

The best parts of working with Shay are: 1. Her expertise and deep knowledge of legal matters. 2. Her strong strategic mind, and ability to anticipate future obstacles and offer solutions. 3. Having someone who I can bounce ideas off, and who I know has my back 100%

With Shay on my team, I’ve been able to focus more on scaling my business and was able to do it more rapidly.

– Jason M. Live Event Producer TRAP Karaoke

I was struggling with how to protect my website, protect my photography method name, and to protect my programs from people who may copy/steal content as their own & sell it.  I worked with another trademark lawyer, but he clearly didn’t get online businesses. 

I felt like Shay brought real knowledge to the table that I didn’t have on how to protect my intellectual property. This is priceless!  I felt heard because I found a lawyer who understands both creatives AND online business. The things Shay and the Lawson McKinley firm helped me with positioned me into a high level of confidence to sell my offerings.  As my new baby brand grows, now I know exactly what Shay needs to file a trademark, I know what forms I should have created, I know what to look for in terms of how my users are using my website & programs, that way the process of getting legally established will be quick & easy.”

PODCAST Episode: How Hiring A Lawyer Expanded My Business

Marie M Photographer, Owner Fearless and Framed LLC

“I tried copying and pasting legal language from Google searches and would often resort to handshake deals. Working with the Lawson McKinley team over the last year alone has helped me confidently generate over $150K in revenue. I’m negotiating terms that honor my value and closing deals way faster. I know my way around a contract and how to spot questionable things. I’m much better at knowing when to walk away. I’ve saved so much time on not scrambling to put together contracts. That alone was worth the investment.
