Legal Services

I enjoy providing legal services in several different but related areas of law. Please review the list below and click on the link to each page to learn more about the legal services I provide. While I focus on businesses that help animals and the environment, I also help other businesses so feel free to contact me if you need similar legal services. Please note that I do not handle any litigation.

Protect Your Brand: If you are a business owner, whether it’s for profit or nonprofit, then you want to make sure you protect your brand by registering your business name, logo, slogan, or other unique way that you are known in the marketplace. If you don’t, then you may find yourself having to go through the expensive process of rebranding your company. I provide trademark registration services nationally and internationally. I also answer Office Actions from the United States Patent and Trademark Office, handle transfers of trademarks, and file renewals.

Nonprofits for Nature: I have been a nonprofit professional for more than 20 years, so I understand what it means to do work that you are passionate about. I help people who have a drive to help animals and nature navigate the federal process to receive tax-exempt status. I also provide legal advice to run your nonprofit effectively and make sure it’s in compliance with federal laws.

Boots and Buttes: As a nature and equine photographer and videographer, I am in the unique position to see photography and other creative ventures through the lens of an attorney. I provide copyright legal services for photographers, videographers, and other creatives, particularly ones involving horses, other animals, and nature.

Equine Law Center: I have been involved with horses for more than 47 years and have been a horse professional for more than 20 years. I bring this extensive equine knowledge together with my legal skills to provide equine legal services and resources, including the Horses and the Law Podcast, the only podcast (as of summer 2022) that focuses exclusively on equine law.

Contact me if you want to discuss a legal matter in any of these practice areas. Please note that I do not handle any litigation.
