Mary on Modern Lawyering
What technology does a modern lawyer leverage, and how does a technology-enabled approach affect the entrepreneur?
The most important questions to ask a potential lawyer are:
What is the cost? (hour rates, flat fees etc). Every business needs to budget responsibly. Are there ways to reduce the cost of your services?
How many clients have you represented, or what experience or knowledge do you have, involving a business like mine?
How do you typically communicate with your clients?
Will there be other attorneys working with our business?
Are you a “full service” law firm? (i.e. What type of services can your firm help our business with)?
“Mary was extremely helpful with helping us with the post-incorporation process and getting all our equity documents and such squared away. Explained everything in plain English and provided great guidance.”
“Mary Hodges is very professional, friendly and open to foreigners who want to incorporate in US. Even though I had given her the job of merely Incorporating my company in US, she gave her time to explain and guide me though the process of post incorporation. Mary also helped me by providing me with further contacts with other various business matters and her concern with helping my business grow is admirable. I highly recommend Mary, it is a pleasure working with her. 🙂”
“It has been now 2 years that I Mary is my attorney, and her professionalism always impresses me!”
“Mary was a pleasure to work with. She always had timely responses and clear experience and direction with helping me complete post-incorporation documentation for my company. She is also considerate about pricing and trying to help her customers get the most value possible out of her services.”
