Private Counsel Legal Plans For

Family-Owned Businesses

Many of our clients are business owners. We have been representing entrepreneurs from family-owned “mom and pop” operations to large franchisee operations.

We help business owners design, implement and maintain effective plans to help them reduce their personal liability, preserve all viable income tax deductions, facilitate the owner’s retirement, maintain family harmony, retain key employees and minimize income, gift and estate taxes.

And, most importantly … we ensure your business has the proper foundation to allow for maximum growth with minimal risk to you and your family.

To help owners protect estates and businesses that have been a lifetime in the making, we focus on an integrated approach to planning.

This approach encompasses a number of issues from Legal to Insurance, and more. As a result, we rely heavily on the expertise of our clients’ other professional advisors to help create the most effective team for our clients’ success - or provide them referrals to our most trusted partners!

We’ve structured our fees and packages so we are all on the same side of the table when it comes to the success of your business.  We are set-up for efficiency, effectiveness, and growth.

Not only will we proactively monitor your business to ensure you remain compliant, but we're also the only law firm that is set-up to help you GROW!!!


Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know which GC plan is right for me?

Generally, the "Fledgling Start-Up" is perfect for businesses up to one (1) year old.  The "Steady Professional" GC plan will generally accommodate most other businesses.  Finally, the "Lifestyle Entrepreneur" GC plan is more appropriate for individuals that have, or wish to pursue, multiple business opportunities.

What if I choose the wrong GC plan?

Don't worry about that.  If you feel like you need to switch to a new GC plan, we can probably accomodate that request.  We'll need to assess what needs to be done and what has been done, and simply re-work your business game plan to fit the new GC plan.

Are the included "Lawyer Letters" Just for my business to use?

No! These letters can be used for any person covered under your plan, for any legal reason.  Some real estate clients use these for the purpose of eviction notices, others use these for the purpose of sending demand letters before a lawsuit begins, and some simply prefer to "exchange" them for a different document they need.

Who is covered under my GC Plan?

These plans were created based on the "typical" client we have - a single-family business.  With that in mind, we've created these GC plans to cover the owner, their stake in the business(es), and reasonably related personal assets.  However, these plans DO NOT cover any litigation matters. ***For businesses with multiple owners, we simply add $100/pp/month.***

Does my GC plan require a term commitment?

Initially, yes. These plans are built around the goal if completing certain tasks for your business within one (1) year, and the payments are then spread out across that year.  After the initial year, we simply swap you into a month-to-month maintenance program.

I'm not sure that I need a GC plan, Can I work with you without one?

Absolutely! You do not have to be a GC Member in order to use our services.  However, these plans have been built around some of the most common requests we get, depending on what phase your business is in.  We've simply packaged it all up, offered a bundle discount, and spread payments out for you.

Welcome To Griffin | A Professional Law Corp.!

Thanks for visiting us today, and considering our practice to be a part of your journey.

While we are open for business, we have decided to take our practice completely virtual, in light of the various pandemic guidelines and the number of individuals we meet with.  This means that, in order to protect everyone's health, we no longer offer in-person appointments.  Fortunately, we are set-up to conduct business virtually so that we can meet you face-to-face, through a video call and provide all services through phone, email and online systems we have in place.

We look forward to helping you grow and protect your business!
