About Me

A criminal investigator internship at the Public Defender’s Office sparked my initial interest in law. Before this, I worked as a cook, bartender, and bouncer in restaurants and bars, in a meat factory, and even as a boxing trainer. My pre-law journey gave me ground-level experience handling the issues businesses face every day. 

At UMass Law, I wasn’t just the top graduate; I also honed my skills working for two Federal Court judges, in litigation firms, and in the community development clinic, where I helped small businesses and non profits with their legal needs. 

After law school, I brought my diverse skillset to San Francisco’s thriving startup scene, focusing on tech, financial compliance, and the burgeoning crypto landcape. Now at Schneider & Branch, I leverage my unique background to advocate for individuals and businesses. 

About Subscription Services

For decades, the billable hour has reigned supreme in the legal world. But in today’s dynamic landscape, cracks are starting to show. Clients crave predictability, value, and a shift away from nickel-and-diming. Enter the rising star of legal billing: subscription models.

Subscription billing offers a refreshing alternative, transforming the lawyer-client relationship from transactional to proactive and collaborative. Here’s why you should consider the switch. 

  • Predictable Costs: No more surprise bills! you pay a flat fee, knowing exactly what your legal coverage entails. This fosters trust and budgeting peace of mind.
  • Transparency: No hidden costs or unexpected charges. You’ll have a clear understanding of your financial commitment throughout the process.
  • Proactive Prevention: Subscription models encourage regular consultations and preventive measures, nipping legal issues in the bud before they snowball into costly litigation.
  • Enhanced Accessibility: Smaller businesses and individuals who previously found legal services out of reach can now afford ongoing counsel and support.
  • Deeper Relationships: The ongoing nature of subscriptions fosters stronger client relationships, allowing lawyers to truly understand their clients’ needs and tailor services accordingly.

 

In business, we get paid to take risk. When lawyers bill by the hour, all the risk is on you, the client. There’s no risk to the lawyer if the matter takes longer than expected, they send their bill to the client at the end of the month anyway.

Subscription and flat fee pricing fixes this approach and creates a system of value-based pricing. This model shifts the focus from billable hours to shared goals and desired outcomes.
