I have had my own law practice since 2014 and I enjoy solving my clients’ problems. That’s why I constantly stay on top of the latest developments in the law and business of startups, entertainment, art, intellectual property, and commercial enterprise. I constantly keep learning because everything I learn helps me make my client’s life better. I assist clients in all aspects of copyright, trademark, contract, trade secret, business, nonprofit, employment, mediation, art, fashion, and entertainment law. Even though I am licensed to practice law in NY, I have worked for clients all over the country and even in Europe, Africa, and Latin America. No matter the client, I always look for ways to protect their assets, artworks, businesses, and brands with strategies to help them grow. I am a fluent bilingual legal professional who can analyze complex legal and business problems and solve them creatively for the benefit of my clients. I am detail-oriented and attentive which makes me excellent at negotiating, drafting, and revising all types of agreements and deals. I advise creatives and companies on intellectual property issues, risk management, and strategic planning. My clients love what I do for them because I employ a practical, client-tailored, and results-oriented approach to their case, no matter how small.

Contract Agreement

New York

Asked on Sep 7, 2021

How to determine jurisdiction for lawsuit?

I have a promissory note written in Montana that was breached. I am in New York. I am the borrower and my aunt is the lender; I have since discovered she wrote the note with unfair terms. I need the note voided. What do I do? I can’t find an attorney anywhere to take my case.

Ramsey T.

Answered Sep 14, 2021

Hi - what does the contract say? We are looking for the choice of law clause. If the contract provides for NY choice of law then fantastic! You hire an attorney in New York, send them a demand letter and file in a New York State Court - on the day after the expiration date for your letter. Once you get your judgment in New York, you hire a collections attorney in Montana to go collect your judgement (if they won't pay up - its amazing how much they are willing to pay when you get a local lawyer to put a lien on their house!) If the choice of law clause says Montana - you can (i) be certain and hire a lawyer in Montana and follow the same process or (ii) be aggressive, hire and file in New York, just to ensure that they have to hire a New York lawyer to get the case dismissed. The second situation would be if you think they would rather settle with you than pay someone in New York to get the case dismissed. There is a lot of strategy to consider - but the most important thing in any of this is to be decisive and move forward with a lawyer quickly once you decide on a course of action. I've seen clients who had stronger cases lose in the end because the other side was aggressive in Court and had their lawyer on a retainer immediately and filed before my client could finish "considering her options."

Cost to get a cease and desist order.

Someone has been calling my job phone and leaving abusive messages

Matthew S.

Answered Oct 29, 2021

The cost depends on exactly what you want. If you want a simple cease and desist letter, I would charge as quoted below. If you want steps beyond that, I may have to charge an hourly rate. $300/hr.

Cease and Desist

New Jersey

Asked on Oct 20, 2021

My name is Ocaris and I was wondering what would be the cost to summons a few YouTube channels with a cease and desist letter?

Defamation of character and slander

Matthew S.

Answered Nov 2, 2021

To send a cease and desist letter to YouTube he’s an exercise in futility. They are exempt from lawsuit under federal law. The various content providers that they host is a different issue. Assuming that there are similar issues for the different providers the initial reason desist letter would cost $200. Each additional content provider would be $100.

Litigation

C Corp

Ohio

Asked on May 28, 2023

C corp and indemnification?

I am the CEO of a small C Corp. Recently, my company has been sued by a customer for a breach of contract. I am concerned about the potential financial and legal implications of this lawsuit and want to understand the rules and regulations around C Corp and indemnification. In particular, I am interested in understanding how C Corp indemnification works and what I can do to protect myself and my company from liability.

Paul S.

Answered Jun 23, 2023

Depending on the state where the company is incorporated, indemnification of directors and officers may be mandatory. In any case, indemnification only comes into play if this customer has named you personally as a defendant in the lawsuit. If the customer has done so, and you were acting in good faith within your role as a director or officer, the company should pay all your expenses in defending yourself, and any judgment against you if you lose. Of course, you should be hiring an attorney to defend the company (and you, if you are named) in this lawsuit. It's not a good DIY project.

Contracts Counsel was incredibly helpful and easy to use. I submitted a project for a lawyer's help within a day I had received over 6 proposals from qualified lawyers. I submitted a bid that works best for my business and we went forward with the project.

I never knew how difficult it was to obtain representation or a lawyer, and ContractsCounsel was EXACTLY the type of service I was hoping for when I was in a pinch. Working with their service was efficient, effective and made me feel in control. Thank you so much and should I ever need attorney services down the road, I'll certainly be a repeat customer.

I got 5 bids within 24h of posting my project. I choose the person who provided the most detailed and relevant intro letter, highlighting their experience relevant to my project. I am very satisfied with the outcome and quality of the two agreements that were produced, they actually far exceed my expectations.
