Skilled Oregon Business Attorney Offering a Range of Legal Services to Businesses and Families

Feeling frustrated and anxious about the search for legal assistance?  Take a moment to breathe and relax!  Yellow Dog Legal and our business attorney Nicole have you covered.

As you explore different law firms — online or offline — you may be feeling overwhelmed. That’s fairly reasonable.  There are a huge range of firms, and they may not always be easy to differentiate from one another.

At Yellow Dog Legal, the value proposition is relatively straightforward.  Here, the quality of representation — and the attention and resources devoted to each client — set the firm apart from competitors.

Business attorney Nicole Schaefer not only provides a range of services to clients in need of high-level advocacy at a reasonable cost but does so in a way that emphasizes their needs and goals.

Our Practices

As a business attorney, Nicole operates a legal practice that serves individuals, families, and small businesses.  Her practice involves only transactional services, and includes the following:

  • Estate planning (wills, trusts, etc.)
  • Estate administration
  • Retirement planning
  • Special needs planning
  • Probate
  • Guardianship/conservatorship proceedings
  • Business planning (entity formation documents, succession planning, etc.)
  • Strategic advisory services (animal law compliance and other liability concerns)
  • Trademarks
  • Copyright

Though there is significant breadth to Yellow Dog Legal’s practice, our focus on more personal legal matters has ensured that such representation is tied to a fundamentally client-centric approach.  This commitment to client-focused representation and experience as a business attorney enables Nicole to effectively handle a wide range of issues.

For example, through close collaboration with a client in an entity formation matter, Nicole gains enough familiarity with their business to transition over quickly to handling IP issues on their behalf (i.e., a trademark registration issue).

Packages and the Boutique Firm Approach

Through her studies with the Family Wealth Institute, Nicole has developed a deep appreciation for the value of “flat fee options” in the form of “service packages.”   By offering various flat fee packages and keeping overhead costs low, Yellow Dog Legal creates an attorney-client dynamic that incentivizes high-level, cost-effective advocacy.
