Why a Small Business Owner Should Hire a Solo Attorney
If you were to speak with solo attorneys, they all might give you a different reason to hire him or her to represent your business. Some of those reasons might include dedicated service, legal knowledge or experience, reasonable fees, etc. Although these are all good reasons to hire a solo attorney, none of them compare to the number one reason to hire a solo attorney to represent your business, which is that the solo attorney is a small business owner.
On any given day, a solo attorney might spend time negotiating with a vendor over new services or listening to unsolicited calls from marketers or companies that can loan the business money. A solo attorney is responsible for hiring staff, paying their salaries and making the difficult decisions regarding staffing. Like many small business owners throughout the Kansas City area, a solo attorney wears many hats and being a lawyer is just one of them.
Because of this experience, a solo attorney understands the challenges and obstacles faced by small business owners and the pressures on your time and limited money. As such, he or she will look for practical solutions to your legal issues that take into account the potential interruption of your business, public relations concerns, and the costs of various options. It is this non-legal experience, coupled with legal experience that makes a solo attorney a good choice for your small business.
