Primary Care

silverlegal aims to provide its clients with a hard-to-find primary care relationship. This creates an intense focus where the lawyer can see risks across the client's business and get to know the client and its industry. 

Accessible Service

A constant theme running through all of silverlegal's 5-star customer reviews is service, which we define as an accessible attorney that takes the time to understand the client's needs, ensures the client understands their options, and delivers quality, tailored, and practical legal solutions.  

Predictable Pricing

Whether flat fee, subscription, or hourly, you will always have a reasonable idea of what your services will cost upfront. 

Old-fashioned Value

Clients can expect silverlegal to work hard to understand your business in a way that typical law firms' pricing models will not allow, with a passion for quality client advice.  We provide a truly personalized relationship at an excellent value. 


We thrive on helping startups

We prefer the messy world of creating something out of nothing.  A vision, limited capital and overwhelming constraints are all you have.  Entrepreneurship is, by definition, drinking from the fire hose.  You're trying to figure out what business you are in, what is your market, who your customers are, what do they want and how best to serve them.  You have an unlimited number of service providers offering you their services.  You have people trying to sell you leads, design your website, develop apps and advertise your business.  Yet you likely have limited time and resources and do not know who you can trust.  It's challenging to say the least.  We get it. 


You know the formula for success: come up with a vision to serve your customers, surround yourself with a team of good people, work hard, and drive forward.  Tweak where necessary.  You may have even driven farther than most of your peers.  Even when you think you have it all figured out, you are only at the beginning. 


While silverlegal cannot solve all of your issues, we believe we can be a valuable contributor to your team and help you row the boat forward.  We can help at any stage of the process, and silverlegal's flexible subscription models for working relationships can grow along with your company.  We thrive on making clients like you happy and confident in their choices.  We spend the time and focus on you when other attorneys do not (even if they say they work with startups).  We want to be part of your journey, and we care about your success.

We Understand That Startups Are Not Always Taken Seriously

With silverlegal, you don’t have to worry about your startup being taken seriously while our lawyers are more concerned with maintaining the relationship of multi-billion dollar clients.  We take our clients seriously at the startup stage.  We happily work with ex-clients of large law firms that feel their former law firms were not looking out for the clients' best interest.  At silverlegal, we don’t treat the legal work of startups as a pro bono opportunity, don’t offer a severely underpriced package initially to startups intended to catch only the highest fliers, or don’t use startup legal work as associate training ground.  Startups and small businesses are silverlegal's main clients, and we charge them our normal prices for our legal work in a mutually beneficial relationship. 

Whether you are a serial entrepreneur, an executive with a side project or a first timer, whether you are only getting started or have found market success, or whether you are boot strapping or seeking venture funding, silverlegal wants to help you achieve your dreams.

We Understand That Startup Inventors Did NOT Get Good Advice Before Coming to silverlegal

Some inventors tried to handle their utility patent applications on their own, and the first Office Actions proved that strategy didn't work out so well.  Others chose a mismatched law firm, whether incompetent, careless, unresponsive, unreasonably high billing, or inability or unwillingness to make progress in patent prosecution stage.  And now the next Office Action arrived and you find yourself looking for someone new with a glimmer of hope that something will change.  With silverlegal, you know your USPTO registered patent attorney will appreciate what it is like to be a startup and how wasted time or wasted funds can lead to a failure of your business venture.  Some times it is too late to fix things after the application is filed, but we will try to get you back on course.

At silverlegal, we understand the legitimate fear of limitless legal spend and how this can alter the fate of your business.  We address this fear by offering upfront pricing, fixed fee work and subscription fee work to provide greater budget predictability to our clients.  And our fees are typically much lower than those of equivalently experienced attorneys at large law firms.  We also provide practical legal recommendations to accommodate the budget needs of our clients and their unique problems.

We find most entreprenures at the beginning prefer a flat-fee per task model.  We are happy to help you with that.  As you grow, we can provide even better value by tailoring a relationship and billing model to the goals you have.  And we are small and nimble enough to have a unique relationship with each of our clients.  

The old way involved repeatedly finding new lawyers, negotiating the price of specific tasks and receiving sporadic legal help narrowly focused to those tasks. Now ask silverlegal what can your company achieve for $1,000 or $2,000 USD a month.  The answer is a dedicated relationship that is customized to your needs, and your budget will be more predictable.  Did you set a goal to keep your startup's first year legal budget at $10,000 USD?  We'll help you.  Do you want to buy a prepaid package of hours and still get the predictability of flat fees and the choice of which legal services to buy?  silverlegal makes this all possible.  Want an attorney to oversee the work of other lawyers or firms in a transparent way?  silverlegal is there for you.  We offer custom packages tailored to your needs.  As you can see, WE ARE ALL ABOUT YOUR NEEDS.

Are you ready to change the conversation around legal billing?

silverlegal aims to provide its clients with a primary care relationship through a devoted attorney. This creates an intense focus where the lawyer can see risks across the client's business and get to know the client and its industry. Unlike other law firms that focus on growing their lists of specialists to increase their average billing rate, silverlegal provides, at a lower average billing rate, seasoned generalists with focused experience in at least one specialization.  With lower overhead, you can expect silverlegal to work to understand your business in a way that typical law firms' pricing models will not allow.  When the alternatives range from DIY legal forms to global law firms we believe silverlegal is the right choice for your startup.

Now startups, small businesses and growing enterprises can have their own part-time/outside General Counsel with better access to advice and at a lower average cost than the large law firms they previously used. Bootstrapped or funded... LLC, S Corp or C Corp... it's time for a better relationship.  If you are not ready to commit to a subscription model or a package of services, give silverlegal a test-drive. silverlegal performs, when possible, flat-fee services for new clients. Let's check for conflicts, sign an engagement letter and work together on building and de-risking that dream of yours.
