As a Grand Rapids small business lawyer, I cut through the red tape — so you don’t have to.
I help small businesses with their legal issues, while helping them avoid legal issues in the future. But I’m not only a small business attorney – I’m also a small business owner, so I understand what you’re going through. I’ve worked through those problems with my own business.
By keeping my costs down – something every small business owner can relate to – I can keep my fees low – so you can keep your legal costs down.
Working with me can save you money now, and in the future. I can help you incorporate your business, protect your intellectual property, plan for your business, and family’s future, and do so without busting your budget.
No matter the size of your business — even if it is just an expensive hobby, you need to incorporate. It’s cheap, easy, and could make a world of difference. There are 2 main reasons to incorporate:
1.Limit your liability
Think about the worst-case scenario with your business. Could someone get hurt? Could a sale go bad? Could someone have a bad reaction to your services? Even if the chances are slim, you need to limit your liability. Incorporating your business can mean that no one can go after your personal assets (like your house, car, or retirement savings) if something goes wrong. It’s cheap, easy, and will help you sleep better at night.
2. Save Money
In his great book, Rich Dad, Poor Dad, Robert Kiyosaki explains that one of the key aspects to becoming rich is using tax laws to your advantage. Incorporating your business opens you up to a world of deductions – like for lunch, your computer, and your car. The potential for savings is immense.
