Business Planning

Let Hudson Legal be your outside General Counsel. Attorney Danielle Hudson Laughlin not only understands business from a legal perspective — she is also a business owner. As you know, today’s business world is fast-paced and demanding. There is never enough time in the day to achieve all of the tasks laid before you! You may not be able to put in-house general counsel on the payroll to ensure you are in compliance, but that shouldn’t stop you from getting quality legal services.

At Hudson Legal, we empower our business clients by giving them the tools they need to help themselves, leaning on us only for the important things. Every business owner has unique needs, differing levels of available time and expertise, and various desires to be “bothered” by the legal side of things. You don’t always need us to fill out paperwork, draft documents, or provide advanced legal advice. But when you do, rest assured that we are here, ready to help! Whether you are seeking to start a new business, expand an existing one, or implement necessary changes for optimizing daily operations, we have legal solutions to fit your needs and your budget.

We offer competitive fixed fees for many business services, including, for example: Choice of Entity Selection, Formation Documents, Non-Compete Agreements, Non-Disclosure Agreements, IT Policies, Social Media Policies, and more. Schedule a consultation with us today to learn how we can help you stay in compliance, grow, and meet your customers’ expectations without breaking the bank!

We not only help with business planning and contracts, we can also file or defend business related lawsuits whether involving a customer, partner, vendor, or governmental agency. For more information about business disputes or litigation services, please see the “Lawsuits” section below.

Estate Planning

Estate planning is not just for the rich. Everyone needs an estate plan in place, but it does not have to be complex. If you have any assets whether personal property such as a car or fine china, or real estate holdings of any kind, you need a plan. If you are an adult over the age of 18, you need to ensure that you have documented your wishes for medical and financial needs in the event you are unable to make decisions for yourself.

Contrary to what some sources would have you believe, your attorney is more than just a document or form generator. An attorney is an advisor and a counselor. No one enjoys discussing what may happen if they fall ill or die. You need someone to treat you with dignity and respect, not simply as a number on a file or a generic online form request. When making plans for your family, no matter how large or small, you need an attorney you can trust to handle your affairs with the proper level of care and expertise.

Attorney Danielle Hudson Laughlin cares deeply about her clients. That is why she limits her practice to those areas that help protect assets, build legacies, and empower clients to make informed decisions in a world wrought with so much misinformation.

We help clients with last will and testaments, living wills, revocable and irrevocable trusts, healthcare directives, powers of attorney, and many more specific areas of estate planning, including real estate and business planning.

Litigation Services

The unfortunate truth is that you may find yourself involved in a lawsuit at some point in your life. While the public perception of lawsuits varies based on several factors, it seems quite common for people to feel uneasy and even scared of lawsuits. However, it is important to remember that lawsuits are a way for private parties to have their disputes over the law heard before a judge or jury when they are unable to resolve the dispute for themselves.

Good lawyers come a dime a dozen — you need a great lawyer with a great reputation for success when facing a lawsuit. When selecting an attorney to help you, you need someone whose personality fits with yours, whose approach to litigation aligns with your values and goals, and who understands how to navigate the stresses of the case while continuing to provide you with calm, understandable, and valued expertise. You also need someone who is not afraid to go to court. Surprisingly, many attorneys do their best not to go to court. At Hudson Legal, we are not afraid to take your case to court and will never settle your case without your consent.
