Legal Advice and Services for Businesses and Individuals

"If It's a Big Deal to You, It Means a Great Deal to Me!"

At Kraft Law Firm, I practice under the motto that "If it's a big deal to you, it means a great deal to me." My clients hire me because I am more than just their lawyer; I am their trusted advisor and confidant. I work tirelessly to put myself in their shoes and provide practical solutions to the issues they face and protect their interests.

Clients describe me as:

  • Thoughtful
  • Caring
  • Compassionate
  • Conscientious and
  • Understanding of their situations.

I receive frequent praise because I am always available, very responsive and I keep them well informed. Including me on your team should help to reduce stress and relieve you from the legal burdens that might hold you back in your business and personal life.

Legal services can be expensive. I review my bills as though I would be the one who will be paying them – I want to be certain that the effort expended was justified and reasonable and that my invoice reflects that standard. As well, I work with my clients to find creative alternatives to hourly billing where appropriate, including flat fee, retainer and project-based billing.

If you are in need of counsel, or just not sure if a lawyer is required for your situation, please give me a call and take advantage of my initial consultation.

Thank you.

Six Things You Must Do When You Start Your Own Business – Where LegalZoom, RocketLawyer And Other “Low Cost” Formation Websites Fall Short

Thanks to the Internet, starting a new business doesn't have to be an ordeal. There are many websites, like LegalZoom and RocketLawyer that will guide you through the process of incorporating or filing an LLC. But is that enough? Hardly. A primary purpose of filing is to protect you from claims against your personal property and family assets. You need some comprehensive (but not costly) legal advice that these sites cannot offer. In fact, they tell you right up front that they do not offer legal advice.

Get Paid in Full and On Time - Five Essential Terms to Include in Your Contracts

As a small business owner, you depend on prompt payment for your success. So often I find that collection problems are directly related to misunderstandings about what is expected of each party. Written contracts help avoid confusion, document the understandings, establish trust and elevate you to a more professional level. Your contract does not need to be a 12-page document full of boilerplate and legalese. In fact, keeping things simple and easy to read can often serve you and your customers best. The scale of the job and other circumstances will dictate how detailed the contract need be, but depending on your business and the scale of the job, a single page with just a few paragraphs might be all you need.

Terminating your Lease-Myths and Misunderstandings

My landlord says I have to get out before noon on the 31st because he needs time to clean the apartment for the new tenants - can he do that? I am a landlord - can I start showing the apartment before my tenant’s lease is up? Do I have to give notice?
