Welcome to my office
That’s right. You’ve just walked in the front door of my web-based law firm, Windhorse Legal, PLLC. Grab a cup of coffee or tea, and let me tell you who I am, what I can do for you, and how I do it.
That’s me, Jo Belasco, Esq., in the picture with one of my horses, a Mustang mare named Reboot. You won’t see many pictures like that on attorney’s websites, but I’m not your average attorney. I know that a lot of people are afraid of attorneys and the law. They dread doing things like creating a will or trust. I am an attorney and counselor at law, and I take the counseling aspect very seriously.
I provide legal services in the areas of estate planning and incapacity documents, business law, and trademark and copyright law to individuals, families, and companies. I know that families come in all shapes and sizes. Your family may be just you or it might include your pet, your best friend, your same-sex partner, your kids, your husband or wife, your siblings, or your parents. I deal with your basic legal needs in a personal, friendly way, giving you advice and counsel tailored to who you are and to the specific needs of your family and your small business, all while keeping your budget in mind. As a horse professional and someone who has had horses in her life for more than 40 years, I also help with legal issues concerning horses, both personally and professionally. I am also a life-long animal lover, so I help you with animal law matters, including forming an animal business and trademarking your brand.
I want my clients to know that the law is a tool they can use to enrich their lives. My job is to help with that process, and I do my job by explaining the law to you, not talking down to you or making you feel intimidated by it. One of my favorite things to do is make the law understandable and accessible to you. You shouldn’t be afraid of the law, and you certainly shouldn’t be afraid of the lawyer helping you. I have been an attorney since 1993 so I have the legal knowledge and experience you need and want in an attorney. You can read more about my training and experience on my bio page.
I also believe law should be approached holistically. That means when we talk about your will or trust, I am going to talk to you about things like a legacy plan that includes you leaving videos or personal notes to important people in your life. If you are starting a business, that means I will ask you what values you want to make sure are included in the formation of your company.
You can read about my different practice areas below. If the legal work you need done is included in one or more of those areas, contact me, and we’ll set up a consultation to see how I can help you. I work with you via phone, email, or Skype. I work with clients all over Massachusetts for state matters like estate planning and business law, and all over the country for federal matters like trademark and copyright services. I don’t do any litigation but I do have a network of attorneys who do and to whom I can refer cases.
