CONTRACTS WITH YOUR CUSTOMERS AND VENDORS

You contract on a regular basis when you sell your goods and services and buy from others. Your contracts speak to your professionalism in the market place. When purchasing goods and services, knowing the risk and potential liabilities allows you to make an informed decision. Minor changes to these types of agreements can make a big difference for your potential liability.

MEET DIANA

This is no cookie-cutter law firm. Yes, the work may be typical, but how I practice is quite different. I’m accessible, efficient, and straightforward. Client calls are on mostly the cell, which I pick up while I’m in front of the computer, on the way to the airport, or on vacation. I text with clients and often dream about their contract terms.

 

I’ve learned to be a good boss to myself as well. I enjoy spending time with my family and painting. Once in a while, you’ll find me at a networking event or catching up with a colleague over coffee.

 

Despite the negativity in the law industry, I’m always positive and believe that if countries in Africa can negotiate peace agreements, so can reasonable business people.

PROCESS

I want to empower clients with knowledge and the ability to make thoughtful decisions when entering into a contract.

  • PANIC

    You just got your biggest deal, and your client asks you for your contract. You know yours is a salad (convoluted and a mishmash of various agreements). You want to make a better impression than that.

  • HELP

    You call me (301-244-8699), and I pick up, “This is Diana.” We talk briefly about your transaction. I run a conflict check, and then I email you an engagement letter.

  • HOPE

    You mail the engagement letter or drop it off at my office along with a check for the retainer.

  • RELIEF

    We talk about the details and your goals. Then, I draft a contract that is simple to read and covers what's required to make your client happy but also protects your interests.

  • YEAH

    You read it, and we talk about any final changes. You email the contract to your client and have a toast when your client sends it back to you signed the same day (because it was so well written, of course).
