FAQs

What kind of law do you do?

We focus on small business law for budding and established businesses.

 

When just starting out, we can help you decide what kind of entity best suits the business (whether an LLC, corporation, partnership, not-for-profit, etc.) and process the necessary paperwork. We can also help with business plans and strategy, operating agreements, contracts and hiring, licensing, real estate, and evaluating and reducing risks or liabilities. It’s important to partner with a lawyer from the get-go so the business can take off with all its legal ducks in a row. Read more about how we can assist small businesses just starting out here.

 

We also work with established businesses. We can help you decide if the entity type is still the best fit for your business, review existing contracts or draft new ones. assist with employment or independent contractor issues, and help manage the wealth from your business, including asset protection and estate planning. Established businesses need to ensure that their success is protected from liability as much as possible. We can help you do that, so you can focus on growing your business further.

In addition to small business law, we address general legal needs. This includes estate planning, end of life preparations, closing on real estate, various legal filings, and contract draft/review. If we can’t help with your specific legal issue, we will point you to a legal specialist who can. You will have a number of legal needs throughout your lifetime – G & G Law can help you prepare for a more secure future. Read more about the general legal issues we can help you with here.

Why did you start G & G Law?

Michelle started G & G Law to provide small business and general practice clients with personal and customized legal services at fair, transparent prices

 

Michelle attended law school at Chicago-Kent College of Law. When it was time to think about what to do after law school, Michelle found the job market to be unappealing. “Big law” jobs required you to bill a large number of hours, and the work involved mostly large document reviews, not the client interaction and problem-solving that Michelle was interested in.

 

So she took a risk and she opened G & G Law, LLC, drawing from her own experience as a small business owner. Her experience as a partial owner of Next Step Test Preparation, LLC, a successful tutoring company, provided her with great insight into the needs and legal concerns of small business owners.

 

Today, G & G Law is a successful firm providing excellent legal services to small businesses and general practice clients across Chicago, and our tight-knit team fosters the friendly, personal environment that sets us apart. Our clients receive peerless service without the pomp and hassle of a downtown law firm, and we’re satisfied doing interesting, fulfilling work while providing a great value to our clients.
