Tricia Dunlap is not only a knowledgeable and helpful business attorney, she also is constantly creating and curating content to help her clients- business owners like me--stay in the know on current events that affect small businesses. She is a great resource for business owners to connect to other professionals who offer much-needed services, and is always quick to respond with straight-forward recommendations or direction when I need her. Thank you for all you do, Tricia!

My experience with Robin Frost was the quickest, most informative and the most professional experience I have had with any Law Firm. She took time to answer all of my questions and my situation was taken care of in less than 24 hours. I highly recommend Robin. Very, very professional but also very kind, which goes a long way. I am a Small Business Owner and when someone goes above and beyond to help you, it means so much.

Dunlap Law prepared all of our contract boilerplates. They anticipated potential issues based on their experience with other clients, and built protections into our contacts to address the issues proactively. Contracts were created in a timely and professional manner.

During the heat of Covid-19, Tricia put out some very helpful youtube videos aimed at small businesses (like mine) who were panicking trying to understand the new programs and legislation that were rapidly rolling out. It was clear that she as a small business herself understood that we needed an advocate. She has since helped us navigate several unprecidented and unexpected employment issues in a professional, but also very thoughtful and personal way. It gives me great peace of mind knowing that I have someone like her to consult with.

Do I need an attorney if I am starting a business?

If you would like to avoid legal issues in the future, we believe it’s best to have a small business attorney involved with starting your business. Dunlap Law can assist with structuring your business, trademarks, pending contracts, negotiation, and employee-related issues.

How can an attorney help get me a trademark for my business?

Trademarks can be essential to making sure your business logos, name, and symbols have legal protection. Our trademark attorney at Dunlap Law can give essential legal advice about your mark’s use, the legal description that creates the scope of protection, the appropriate Class, and what to expect during the registration application process.
