Pivotal Law Firm, Inc

Pivotal Law Firm, Inc

We are big law firm refugees. After spending decades at law firms with 500 lawyers and above, we’ve unshackled ourselves from the rigid rules and billable rates of big law firms in order to better serve our clients. We are a big law firm experience and service in a small firm environment!

We are practical, down-to-earth advisors with an exceptionally good bedside manner. We speak plain-talk and we don’t get hung up on issues for which you don’t want us to be wasting your time and your money. We don’t make decisions for you, but we will empower you with sufficient background and understanding so that you can make an informed, business decision.

We work with you in all areas of your entrepreneurial adventure. We are here to help at the very beginning, when things are just starting to come together . . . when you want to make sure that you don’t screw things up. We’ll help you through your growing pains, whether it’s time to seek investors to fuel your projected growth, bring on new team members to execute on your plan, acquire a business or your need to pivot towards a more promising opportunity. Finally, we’ll be there for you at the end of your journey when, hopefully, it’s time to enjoy the fruits of your labor by a successful exit.
