What we’re talking about
A New Type of Firm Online Businesses Finding An Attorney
Truly Not Your Father’s Lawyer
Keren is definitely not your father’s lawyer…she’s on a mission to prove to the world that you can have an amazing attorney who will not break your bank account by being a flat fee attorney who specializes in helping entrepreneurs and online businesses protect themselves. Keren is like Legal Zoom Plus because you get the flat fee model but with an actual attorney attached.
Protecting Yourself As An Online Business Owner
As an online business owner or simply someone with a website, you’re still subject to various laws by your city, state and even the FTC. It’s so important to protect yourself with privacy policies and terms and conditions otherwise you are leaving yourself vulnerable and liable.
Making Sure Your Attorney Is Like A Friend
You might not think of an attorney as a friend, but Keren says it’s of the utmost importance that you click with yours. Think of your attorney as you would your therapist…you want to like them and need to click with them. You want to find someone who understands you, your business and your goals.
It’s time to protect yourself!

26:37 (55 sec KZ) – I just think not to be afraid. I’m not the only one. I’d like to say I’m the best, but there are a lot of others like me and it’s really important that you find a lawyer you trust, as you know I tell clients, I’m a transactional attorney, so all I do is draft documents, set up operations, you know form entities and if and when God forbid a person gets sued, I’m passing them off to a litigator, somebody who spends time in court. It’s really rare, 9 times out of 10 you’re writing a contract that literally no one’s going to pick up again, nobody cares, but when it goes awry, it can be very, very costly for you and it’s so important. Your lawyer should be somebody you feel like is a friend and is like a therapist. You know you wouldn’t just go to some therapist you don’t click with, so it’s important to find a lawyer you trust who understands your business and is will to listen.
People forget that even though you’re online, you’re subject to laws. KZ I am very risk-averse. KZ I’m super hyper-organized. KZ My father’s lawyer wasn’t a fan of the name. KZ Your lawyer should be somebody you feel is a friend. KZ
