Why Work with Us
At Elevon Law, our top priority is not maximizing the number of clients or our billable hours. Seriously. Instead, our #1 goal is to develop long term relationships with the clients that we do represent, and for our clients to achieve the highest rate of return and satisfaction level by working with us.
We provide top notch legal services under an economical fee structure, with an hourly rate at a fraction of those at large law firms. We are also open to alternative arrangements that suit your needs, such as project based flat fees or dedicated part-time assignments at a fixed cost.
We will invest heavily in the relationship with you. We will get to know your business inside out, as well as your competitors, the industry and related fields. Further, besides being your lawyer, we would love to serve as your sounding board and advisor on business matters, such as positioning the company for investor pitches, evaluating corporate partnership opportunities, or improving your user acquisition funnel. Our time, on our own dime.
At the end of the day (and the quarter and year), we want you to see us as an asset on your balance sheet, much more so than as an expense item on your income statement.
