“A lot of entrepreneurs don’t realize what a big risk employment law is, so we help with that.”


“You will save money, save yourself, and save your business by getting that legal advice upfront.”


“If you buy a template and nothing else, buy a template for your privacy policy. That is actually required by law.”
