Job Business and IP Attorney / Opticliff ESQ - A different kind of law firm.
Lives In East Deering
Grew up in Camden, ME. Schooled at UCONN and Maine Law. Founded Maine Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts in 2008. Opened my law firm in 2012. I'm an avid telemark skier, basketball player, and ultimate player. I'm also a moustache supporter.
I help individuals and small businesses, many of which are in the creative sectors, protect themselves and their assets by forming entities (like LLCs and corporations), registering their intellectual property (like copyrights and trademarks), and drafting clear, complete contracts (like service agreements, non-disclosure/confidentiality agreements, and licenses).
I also can be found found speaking at a variety of educational events and conferences geared toward creatives and entrepreneurs.
I love local coffee and beer.
Why did you choose Portland? It has energy, culture, and honesty.
I help high-acheiving parents and families get a life that FEELS as good as it LOOKS.
I help nonprofits communicate their mission effectively, and I advocate for flexible work arrangements.
I write fiction, short stories, and poetry. Lately, it's mostly haiku inspired by what I dream about at night.
