After feeling creatively uninspired in the practice of law, I took the leap into entrepreneurship and started my own lifestyle photography studio. n an effort to help more business owners, I launched the Stock Gallery, a unique and high quality styled stock photography membership site for women in business.
After a decade in business I realized I could help entrepreneurs with the legal side of their businesses. From forming their companies, to protecting their creations, to drafting and negotiating contracts, I wanted to provide easy and accessible legal consult to fellow entrepreneurs, and thus Influencer Legal was born.

“Time to make sure you are protected.
So you want to make sure that you choose a trademark attorney that is a good fit for you, someone that you’re comfortable with, someone that you feel aligns with your values and how you do business. But there are always some questions that you can ask just to make sure that you’re covering all your basis.

I don’t know if that’s true, but that’s the sense that you want to get right. So to you, maybe back 20 years of experience is what sealed the deal for you. That’s super important to you. It doesn’t matter. It’s your choice. But you just want to have a sense of how much experience they actually have. Now, if someone’s $50 to $100 and they say, this is my first one, and you’re like, great, I didn’t want to pay a lot.
I’d love to give you the experience then. Awesome experience doesn’t necessarily equal better, but I do think that there’s a level of experience and understanding the nuances that go along with the trademark process that are important. So make sure you consider those.
The second thing you may want to ask is, is the firm a trademark only firm…”
