Many small to medium-sized businesses have the need for legal advice as it relates to the ongoing operations and growth of their organizations. However, most do not have the revenue and volume to justify hiring in-house counsel. Similarly, finding effective outside counsel can be extraordinarily time-consuming and expensive. You want to have the ability to pick up a phone and get answers to your legal questions without paying a $5,000 retainer or wondering how much it will eventually cost you.
As a result, you wait. Or you try to address the issue without the benefit of sound legal advice. Ultimately, if you have to hire a lawyer, it is in a crisis situation where you may make a poor decision founded on haste and fear, as well as incur substantial time and expense associated with getting your new attorney up to speed.
To solve this dilemma, we offer “Your In-House Counsel,” an innovative legal program that provides you with your own general counsel to quickly, ably and affordably address your concerns. Your In-House Counsel was founded by noted attorney Aviva Y. Gordon when she recognized the ongoing legal needs of businesses just like yours. Aviva has represented businesses throughout Nevada for more than 20 years in all aspects of strategic planning, transactions and litigation. She has been designated as a “Preeminent Lawyer” by Martindale-Hubbell, the industry’s leading publication for peer review ratings of lawyers and law firms.
Aviva has also been repeatedly recognized as a “Legal Elite” by Nevada Business Magazine.
