Matt is a FANTASTIC attorney and the firm is PHENOMENAL! He takes the time to explain things when I didn’t understand, conducted business in a very professional and timely manner and I have had zero issues working with him.

If you need him to look over contract and you are client he will . And give you the advice you need. I already have referred my friends to him .

Matthew Murillo from Griffin was OUTSTANDING. I sought advice. He did not know the answer – researched it – got back to me with just what I needed. He then showed me how I could do it myself without having to be charged by his company. Genuine and authentic. I will be going back to Griffin and Matthew for any legal needs moving forward.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can't I Just Download Something From Google?

Oh, sure, you could always turn to our good friend Google for all your legal document needs. I mean, who needs a qualified lawyer when you can just hit up the search bar, right?

But let’s get real for a second here. Legal compliance isn’t just about slapping together a document from a generic template. It’s about making sure that document has the right language in it to protect you and your business from any legal hiccups down the road. And let’s be honest, there are a lot of not-so-great templates out there that could actually end up hurting you more than helping you.

So, yes, you could download something from Google. But do you really want to risk the future of your business on a one-size-fits-all solution? We didn’t think so. Trust us, a qualified business lawyer is worth their weight in gold when it comes to legal compliance. Don’t take our word for it though, ask any successful entrepreneur out there – they’ll tell you the same thing.

I already set-up my business, I just need an operating agreement? Can I request just that?

Ah, the classic “I’ve set up my business, what else could I possibly need?” question. Well, my dear entrepreneur, let me tell you something: having an operating agreement or bylaws is great and all, but it’s not the end-all-be-all of risk management.

Sure, you could just request an operating agreement and call it a day. But why stop there? Let’s take a closer look at your entity choice and make sure you’re not setting yourself up for disaster down the line. We’ve seen too many people make the mistake of assuming they’re protected, only to find out the hard way that their entity choice was a recipe for disaster.

So let’s be proactive and make sure we’re putting you in the best possible position for success. Sure, it may take a little extra time and effort, but trust us – it’s worth it in the long run. After all, who doesn’t love a good risk management strategy? So let’s get to work and make sure your business is built to last.

My business is not that complicated, I should be ok with one of those DIY website right?

Ah, the age-old question: should you go for the cheap, easy option, or invest in quality legal assistance? Well, my dear entrepreneur, let me tell you – you might be just fine with a DIY website. After all, why bother with pesky things like accuracy and alignment with your business goals and asset strategy? Who needs custom-drafted documents when you can just copy and paste a template that might not even be the right fit for your specific situation?

But here’s the thing: we’ve seen it all before.

The wrong operating agreement for a single owner business, misaligned business goals and asset strategy… the list goes on. And let’s not forget about the add-ons and extras that you’ll end up paying for with a DIY option. Sure, you might save a few bucks at first, but at what long-term cost?

That’s where we come in.

We offer quality legal assistance that’s tailored to your specific needs. No cookie-cutter templates here – just custom-drafted documents that actually make sense for your business. And when you factor in the potential cost savings of avoiding costly mistakes and litigation down the line, well, suddenly that DIY option doesn’t seem so appealing anymore.

So go ahead, take your chances with a DIY website. Or, you know, invest in your business and give us a call. We promise it’ll be worth it in the end.

How long do your services take?

Ah, the age-old question of how long our services take. It’s a tricky one because honestly, it depends on a lot of things. Like what we’re doing for you, how busy we are with our other clients (yes, we have other clients, shocking, I know), and of course, the ever-unpredictable processing times of government entities.

But fear not! We’re not just going to leave you hanging. We suggest you consult with us about your timeline, so we can come up with a strategy that works best for you. Because let’s be real, waiting until the last minute is not a good look for anyone.

So, savvy entrepreneur, let’s work together to create a timeline that fits your needs and keeps us both happy. And hey, if you’re feeling really brave, you can even try to throw us off our game and see if we can work some magic to get things done even faster.

Challenge accepted?

I can't find your fees anywhere. How much do you charge?

Oh, you want to know how much we charge? How quaint. Let’s just say that our fees are enough to keep our business running and our bank accounts happy. But don’t worry, we’re not here to bleed you dry – we charge what we believe is fair for the services we provide.

Now, we understand that transparency is important to you. So, after we get an idea of what you need, we’ll offer you a flat rate. That way, you’ll know exactly what you’re paying for and won’t have to worry about any surprise fees down the line. Because let’s face it, who has time to worry about long-term legal fees?

So, if you’re an entrepreneur looking for a lawyer who won’t nickel-and-dime you, we’re it.

And let’s be real, in the cutthroat world of business, you need a lawyer who can hold their own – and that’s exactly what we’ll do for you.
