"Making Molehills out of Mountains"

Michelle Slater Law
You are an in-house attorney:

Maybe you run the legal department, maybe you are the legal department. Are there times when you just can't get everything done? You are stretched too thin? It could be because of a large business transaction or project, an unexpected spike in work, an approaching deadline, or perhaps you just lost a staff member and have a temporary hole in your team.

Whatever the reason, I can help. I was a business lawyer for 15 years at a large law firm. Now, I'm my own boss, and have the flexibility and experience to provide you support when you need it most.

    You are a busy executive; you wear many hats:

But lawyer is not one of them. It's not that you need a lawyer or a law firm all the time, but when you have a question, a problem, an idea, or an opportunity to pursue you want to know your lawyer is there, is available, and is paying attention.

Of course, some situations call for a full-service law firm. But not most. For those times, you can call on me. I am responsive, work to understand your business needs as well as your legal needs, and give candid, practical advice.

I was part of a full-service law firm for 15 years. Now, it's just my name on the door. I am free to give you and your business the attention you need, when you need it. I am able to get up to speed quickly, evaluate a situation or set of facts holistically, and provide effective and practical service.

    You are a fellow attorney in a law firm:

You're doing your best to keep your clients and to keep your clients happy. But what if a client calls and you have a conflict? Referring your client to another law firm presents risks; law firms are hungry. In those situations, I can help.

I grew up in a full-service law firm, but now I work solo. I am not a full- service attorney. And I don't want to be. So, your client is safe with me. I am happy to help your clients on discrete business matters when you can't. I will treat them well, provide excellent and practical legal services, and return them happy.


If you have a project that I can help you with
please do hesitate to contact me to find out more.
