Unleashing Your Entrepreneurial Potential: Our Core Services

At Griffin | A Professional Law Corp., we’re committed to making “entrepreneurship easy”.

Our Practice vs DIY:

Time to Market: Swift and Personalized Legal Services

Online platforms like LegalZoom may provide fast results, but they often miss the nuances of personalized guidance that an experienced business attorney can provide. At Griffin, we expedite your legal matters by focusing on your unique needs and proactively addressing potential issues that could slow your progress.

With our efficient process, you can typically expect to have everything you need to open your business bank account within 5-7 business days, followed by custom corporate drafts over the next 7-10 days. In contrast, DIY platforms could take up to 20-30 days, with additional rush fees for expedited service.

Uncompromising Service Quality

As a professional law corporation, our quality of service surpasses that of DIY platforms. We provide customized advice tailored to your business’s unique needs and fully personalized documents as part of your entity strategy, unlike the generalized fill-in-the-blank templates offered by online services.

At Griffin, we ensure that all your legal documents are meticulously prepared, filed, and compliant with pertinent industry laws. Our approach is proactive, aimed at mitigating potential legal issues in the future, and ensuring a smooth entrepreneurial journey for you. Trust Griffin to be your reliable partner, making “entrepreneurship easy”.

Investing in Your Future: Why Choose Griffin?

Our services may involve a higher initial investment compared to DIY solutions, but we firmly believe that you get what you pay for. Our expertise allows us to mitigate risks and prevent costly errors overlooked by many DIY platforms. We provide guidance in selecting the most suitable business entity, potentially saving you future tax liabilities and other costs.

Addressing legal complications arising from formation mistakes can be significantly more costly than engaging a professional from the outset. This is especially true for the 20+ industries in California required to form as a “Professional Corporation.” Our clients have often found that DIY services, with their many upsells, only saved them a modest amount upfront, only to incur higher costs later to rectify issues these services generated.

The Power of an Ongoing Legal Partnership

An attorney-client relationship is not just beneficial; it’s essential. Having a business attorney ensures that you have a professional who understands your business inside and out, ready to provide timely advice and services as your enterprise expands. They are just a phone call away to address your legal questions or concerns, a personal touch that online services can’t replicate. This relationship means that your attorney is invested in your success and can offer proactive, preventive advice, unlike online services’ more reactive approach.

If you’re seeking to prevent minor disputes from escalating into significant issues and crave peace of mind, an enduring attorney-client relationship is indispensable.

Who Do We Serve?

At Griffin, we work with a broad spectrum of clients. However, we find ourselves most often assisting those in the service industries, such as:

  • Health & Wellness
  • Coaches & Consultants
  • Restaurants & Bars
  • Licensed Professionals (Attorneys, MFTs, LCSWs, Doctors, etc)
  • Real Estate Investors
  • Trades/Contractors

Your industry’s unique requirements are our expertise. Make entrepreneurship easy with Griffin, your partner in entrepreneurial success.

Some of Our Clients

“…I felt he had given me the resources to grow and develop professionally…

You will not be disappointed! I am happy that I was referred to Matt; it was easy to understand what needed to be done, and great he was at helping me and supporting me with starting the business! I felt he had given me the resources to grow and develop professionally. He has a way of articulating his sentences by not telling you what to do; he asks very well-thought-out questions that give you the foundation to build a clear thought! You will not regret setting a consultation with him!
