Simply put: Patrice is a GREAT attorney for creative entrepreneurs! I’ve already had my initial consultation. She put all of my business plans into one fantastic package…in one hour. And I’m very excited about getting started. Recently, I attended the Chicago Artists’ Coalition’s 20/20 Legal workshop. Patrice’s “10 Quick + Dirty Legal Tips for Creative Entrepreneurs: Negotiating Contracts, Intellectual Property and a Little Social Media in Between” presentation was phenomenal. I love how she s…

I met Patrice Perkins on Paul Carrick Brunson’s inspirational webcast session, #MentorMonday. She is a lawyer who works with creative persons like myself to bring together the creativity and the law (as in protecting their rights, etc.). Patrice was very knowledgeable on the webcast and inspiring. Her website is phenomenal and inspiring as well. She is definitely someone I plan to work with in the near future.

I had the pleasure of hearing Patrice give her professional opinion during a live Mentor Monday session with matchmaker expert Paul C. Brunson. Offering practical business tips and legal advice that was helpful, she prides herself on motivating risk takers and dreamers! What I enjoyed most about listening to Ms. Perkins is that she was not only encouraging but most of all a professional!

I started working with Patrice in the beginning of 2013 to start a non-profit organization. She has a creative mind and helped me to see beyond the cut-and-dry law. We now have 501(c)3 status and can begin to offer new services to advance arts education for our community, students, and educators. As an artist, I also worked with Patrice to trademark my brand. She provided me with plenty of advice to protect my own creative language. Coming from an artist’s background I didn’t understand anything…

I would give Patrice ☆☆☆☆☆ (5 STARS)! She is truly visionary and has given me so much valuable service and coaching as it relates to my graphic design/printing business as well as my recent book project The Entrepreneur Within You which she is a contributing author. She is by far one of the smartest people I have met. She is patient, strategic, understanding, fair, and is truly creative. She’s an amazing attorney and helped me shape my contract up very nicely. I would and do recommend her OFTEN …

Talking it through with a lawyer and creative advocate like Patrice gave us confidence in our decisions. She pushed us to think about both our short-term and long-term needs and the legal implications of our business. The biggest results that we experienced were talking with a legal professional that understands what is important to creative businesses and receiving small business support beyond “legal services”. Not all lawyers are the same; Patrice is patient and genuinely vested in suppor…
