The Law Office of Elizabeth Bradford provides moderately-priced legal help to small business owners. Based in the lower Hudson Valley, my practice focuses on the needs of small brick and mortar and online retail businesses, including food businesses, and the needs of freelance service providers including consultants, contractors, artist and film producers.
I have over 20 years of business legal counseling experience, but no problem is too small for me to tackle and no business is too small to serve. Contact me for a free initial consultation. I offer both hourly rates and flat fees for certain services.
Don’t go to an online service provider that knows nothing about you or your business, or assume that what worked for another business owner will work for you. Take the time to get personalized, competent assistance. It may be the best investment in your business you ever make.
During an extensive career as in-house counsel to a major convention center I was responsible for servicing all its legal needs, including reviewing and drafting contracts, advising management on employment issues, and insuring corporate ethics and governance compliance. At the same time, I developed a desire to work with small businesses like the many that fill the exhibition halls during major shows.
In pursuit of that dream, I joined a not-for-profit where I worked with a broad array of New York City micro-businesses, from home-based food businesses and makers of natural beauty products to app developers and marketing consultants. I developed a thorough understanding of their businesses and legal needs and matched them with attorney volunteers at major law firms, and I worked closely with an in-house team that provided clients with financial management skills and marketing advice.
Building on my experience with entrepreneurs, I created my own firm to serve the needs of small business owners in my Hudson Valley community.
I graduated Summa Cum Laude from Yale College in 1975 and got my law degree from Harvard Law School in 1979.
I am admitted to practice in New York State and in the federal courts in the Southern and Eastern Districts of New York.
