I stumbled into my relationship with Patrice and Lifestyle Zen. Let me back up, I met Patrice before I knew she was a creative law wiz. She is a good friend of a good friend of mine which, by universal law, makes her cool but after she told me she was a creative law attorney I was floored. Six degrees of separation was more like two degrees of legal kismet. From day one Patrice showed as much interest in my venture, The Genius Syndicate (a learning-inspired lifestyle brand for kids), than I’d se…

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 …

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!

Patrice has served as my attorney since late last year. As a new business owner, Patrice literally walked me through the steps of properly organizing the legal side of my enterprise, as well as preparing contracts and protecting my brand and blog. I highly recommend her to creative entrepreneurs like myself who are ready to take their businesses to the next level. You cannot afford to miss out on her services.

Patrice presented at the Blogging While Brown Conference, and her workshop was the best, in my opinion. The information she gave about protecting your intellectual property as an online content creator was PRICELESS! She made it easy to understand, and I walked away feeling empowered with so much information. She’s clearly an expert in her field, and the impression she left had me eager to work with her!

I was initially impressed with Ms. Perkins’s enthusiasm, communication skills and professional demeanor when I attended a workshop held at the Creative Chicago Expo. During the workshop, she consistently demonstrated all of these qualities and more. Of particular value to me as an entrepreneur, I learned valuable information that would assist me in the future. Patrice is organized and diligent with the task at hand. I heartily endorse her for any legal workshops or as an attorney for entrepreneu…

I had the pleasure of being introduced to Patrice at a local entrepreneur’s conference. She delivered a brief workshop about blogging and intellectual property rights of online content for creative entrepreneurs. I was immediately drawn to her obvious passion for helping small business owners and serial creatives like myself. I hired Patrice to assist me in streamlining my business operations under one legal entity rather than the fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants strategy that afflicts most entrepren…

If you’re looking for an intellectual property attorney, Patrice Perkins should be consider. I’ve hired her on several occasions to negotiate win/win contracts. Her attention to detail, and grasp on the universe of potential issues were invaluable. She’ll get you the results you’re looking for, as well as other things you never considered. I highly recommend her to anyone who is negotiating a major deal.

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…
