Legal Meets Practical: Accessible Solutions

General Legal Issues

If your veteran-owned small business (VOSB) performs federal Government contracts, you will encounter a variety of issues as you conduct and grow your business. I can assist with the following:

  • Addressing disputes or issues with prime contractors
  • Addressing disputes or issues with the federal Government
  • Ensuring compliance with federal laws and regulations
  • Addressing and avoiding False Claims Act accusations
  • Handling employment disputes and issues
  • Interpreting and adhering to the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR)

Contracting with the federal Government is a serious matter. It means that you will not only have to understand your obligations to your employees under federal and state law, and your obligations to vendors and other parties under state law, but also your obligations to both prime contractors and the federal Government under federal law. This is extremely difficult to do at times, and hiring experienced legal counsel to guide you in the right direction or to address general legal issues can be a prudent business investment.

Mission Statement

My mission is to provide accessible, high-quality legal services to small business owners and to veterans. I will strive to clearly communicate, understand objectives, and formulate and execute effective legal solutions.
