Many of your business problems stem from decisions made long before the problem showed up. As a trial lawyer, I've spent most of the past 40 years helping business owners clean up those problems in court and in arbitration. Over the years, those clients have paid me a great deal to learn about the problems that come from bad deals, bad contracts, bad management, bad employees, a bad economy, and bad planning.
Virtually all of those problems, including the possibility of losing everything you've worked for in one bad deal, result from lack of planning or lack of advice on the front end of the deal. What if you felt comfortable asking an experienced lawyer how to avoid those problems when you're doing the deal instead of asking how to solve the problem after the deal falls apart?
Most entrepreneurs are business visionaries. You see a need and figure out a way to fill it to provide value and generate profits. You know your business inside and out. Unfortunately, you don't know mine. You often don't know what you don't know. You need a trusted adviser who has seen the mistakes other business owners have made and can help you avoid them. A good lawyer erases your problems. A great lawyer prevents them.
At Padgett Law, P.A., my job is to be part of the solution, not part of the problem. I'd rather build a relationship with you and keep you out of trouble so you can spend more time building your business and less time defending it from the crooks and cranks of the world. As your part time outside general counsel, I'll put my 40 years of experience to work for you.
