FAQs About the Law Practice

As you know computers, tablets, and smart phones are part of our daily lives.  Everything moves at a rapid fire pace.  As a creative entrepreneur you have deadlines, projects, paperwork, and displays that must be reworked.  How will you have time to take care of business or legal matters?  Now, there’s an easy and efficient way to take care of your legal matters.  It’s the online law practice.

What is an Online law practice?

An online law practice (also known as a virtual law practice) is one that allows you to have access to your attorney when it is convenient for you.  All legal matters are handled online.  What does this mean for you, the client?  It means that you have access to your files at any time; that you can communicate with your attorney when it’s convenient for you; that you will be charged a fixed fee for services; and that all of this is accomplished on a site that is as secure as your online banking.

How do I contact your office?

There are 3 ways that our office can be contacted.

What do I do to get started working with AAT Law?

Most clients will first contact us through the Online Law Office or through email. At that point, we will schedule an initial consultation where we can learn more about you and your business and discuss your legal needs.  We are also more than happy to answer any questions you may have about pricing and how the Law Office works.

The next step after you decide to become a client is to register for the online office.   Once this is done, we will send you an engagement letter, and an invoice through our online portal.

Is sending my information online secure?

Yes!  The law office software that we use is as secure as your online banking and government agency websites.  All of your information is completely private and can only be viewed by you.  Your documents and communication are encrypted at the highest level so that they are protected.  Your documents are also backed up in multiple locations to ensure that there is no loss of information.

How much do you charge?  How do I pay my bill?

Our fees are easy to understand.  We have no hidden costs.  Everything is based on a flat rate.  We do not do billable hours, so you always know what you are being charged for a legal task.  We will always notify you if your matter requires additional work that would make it necessary for you to pay more.

Our goal is for you to purchase legal services as you need them.  You may pay for one service such as having a contract drafted or you may purchase a Service Package that allows you to receive several services over the course of a year.  These packages are designed to meet the needs of a variety of business both, old and new, large and small.

How will I know if you have accepted to work on my legal issue?

We are licensed in Georgia.  However, any intellectual property matter can be handled by our firm as it is a federal law practice area.  If we are unable to handle your matter, we will refer to another  attorney who is qualified to handle your specific issue.

What type of companies and clients do you represent?

We represent all kinds of folks in the creative industry—wholesalers, retailers, artists,  Etsy shop owners, manufacturers who wish to license, bloggers, creative service providers, and designers of all kind.  The one thing each of these have in common is that they are entrepreneurs who wish to make their business grow and thrive.

Yes!  We are always thrilled to learn about someone’s new business venture.  We offer many levels of support for new businesses and entrepreneurs to help grow your dream.   As your business needs change you will be able to choose tailor your legal services  accordingly.
