Attorney Brett Wasserman

Prior to becoming a lawyer, I was a small business owner. However, we found ourselves facing a frivolous lawsuit from a “professional plaintiff.” To make matters worse, we had licensing agreements with two (2) large corporations, which both had indemnification agreements! Suddenly, our “American Dream” became more of a nightmare and I found myself helplessly trying to navigate and understand legal issues well beyond my comprehension.

When all was said and done, I chose to turn a negative experience into a positive, so I took a job in the legal industry and enrolled in law school at night.  I know first hand how overwhelming and confusing the legal system can be, and how it can be abused. Now, I use my own experiences to help other small businesses and small business owners avoid and/or navigate the same.

A Proactive Approach to Business Law

While there are all kinds of business lawyers out there, Marc and I choose to take a proactive approach to solving the legal issues that affect growing companies. From aspiring entrepreneurs to successful small business owners, we aim to prevent legal complications before they arise.

We help local business owners choose the right entity type, minimize tax burdens, make smart real estate decisions, and even protect their companies for generations to come by setting up well-rounded business succession plans and estate plans.

Having been on the receiving end of a lawsuit prior to becoming a lawyer, I know first hand how scary it can be. That’s why I make sure my clients know I’m just a phone call, e-mail, or text message away.


Estate Planning & Tax Planning Services

Of course, business owners aren’t the only people we work with, and one of my favorite things about working with Marc is our shared passion for getting to know our clients. We genuinely enjoy forming relationships with them and being available whenever they need our guidance. In fact, many of the clients we have today are the children of some of Marc’s earliest clients. If that doesn’t tell you what kind of law firm we run, nothing can.

Whether you need help forming a business, preventing business or tax-related issues, setting up an estate plan, or administering the estate of a loved one, we’re up for the challenge. These tasks aren’t always easy, but rest assured — you don’t have to face them alone.
