Justin Lancaster

Patent Attorney with Contract Law and Intellectual Property

United States - Tests: 8 - Portfolio: 1

PATENT ATTORNEY. CONTRACT LAWYER. BUSINESS MANAGER. STRATEGY, You need some legal help fast. And you don't want to drive downtown and pay a city lawyer $750/hour. So you've come here to find a lawyer just as good who will charge you only ONE FIFTH of that going rate. Right? REALLY??!! WELL, YOU'RE IN LUCK!! But, why am I offering you such a crazy deal? First, because I am bootstrapping a startup company to solve human disease and I need just enough money to pay for gas, buy printer ink at Staples, and pay my software coders on UpWork. So, you help me and you'll be helping humanity!! Second, I don't like chasing clients for payment, so the UpWork hourly pay structure solves that problem well! (I prefer hourly to fixed contract!) And, third, because I don't want to work in a law firm downtown. Been there. Done that. So, how can I help you? What busines or legal advice do you need? Do you have a nifty product idea? An invention you want to patent? Or a contract or agreement to get written and negotiated? And, if you are in Massachusetts (or your legal problem is in this state), then I can help with almost any other type of legal problem, too. --- immigrations, employment, contracts, licensing, negotiation, corporate, trademarks, copyright, patents, family, real estate, ... you name it ------------------------------------------------------------- LOOJL ------------------------------------------------------------ Law Offices Of Justin Lancaster ------------------------------------------------------------- -- IP services for customers in any of the United States -- General business coaching and strategy development -- 35 years of legal experience in many branches of law -- Legal counseling, contract drafting, review and editing -- Negotiation services I've served in executive management positions in more than eight high-tech startup companies and can provide valuable sales, marketing, business development, strategy and operations assistance.
