Gertz Legal, PS
Virtually every aspect of modern life is impacted by intellectual property rights.
More than ever before, the value of a business is driven by its patents, trademarks, and trade secrets.
In the creative arts, works are often protected by copyrights and trademarks. These intellectual
property rights provide an opportunity for the owners to control and benefit from their talent and hard
work. Understanding and managing these rights, however, requires specific legal advice.
Most small businesses and creative individuals know that they ought to take action to
protect their intellectual property rights, but the challenges of finding convenient, affordable
advice can seem overwhelming. Gertz Legal, PS takes several approaches
to overcoming these challenges:
Gertz Legal, PS is conveniently located in Woodinville, with easy access
from Bothell, Kirkland, Redmond, and other Eastside neighborhoods. There is no need
to make a time-consuming and aggravating trip to downtown Seattle to find an intellectual
property attorney. In addition to meeting clients at my location, I am also available
to meet with you at your business office at no extra charge. I understand the value
of your time, and whether we meet at my location or yours, I am prompt and reliable.
I take care not to over-schedule appointments and to allow sufficient time for every meeting.
Traditionally, attorneys have billed by the hour, leaving you unsure of what the final
cost might be. I understand that this uncertainty is a problem for individuals and
business owners who need to work within a budget. To help you make an informed
decision about your legal services, Gertz Legal, PS offers flat-fee,
up-front billing. This means that I will tell you exactly what I am going to do
and exactly how much it is going to cost before any work is done. You can be confident
that you know what you are getting and what you are paying. It also allows you to have
work done in sections, if appropriate. You may choose to get an initial opinion at a
fixed price, for example, and then consider your options for proceeding based on the initial
opinion and the costs involved in moving forward.
