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…

My partner and I consulted Patrice for some advice regarding our start up business. Patrice was very thorough…very detailed…she gave us relevant suggestions and things to think about. She allowed us to ask questions and take our conversations where we wanted them to go which is important to our vision!! I have actually recommended Patrice to several people already so was MORE than happy to recommend her here!

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 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 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…

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.

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…

Patrice is a breath of fresh air!
