We have done away with the overhead associated with brick-and-mortar law firms, with heavy investment in expensive office leases, bloated staffs, teams of recent law school graduates with limited experience and the high hourly fees required to sustain them all. In the Internet age, it is now possible to assemble a custom legal team for projects based on a network of experienced lawyers with those exact skills needed for the project. Video conferencing, cloud-based data storage, email and other technologies make it possible to offer sophisticated business services without the overhead of a traditional law office. The client receives more personalized service with focused expertise on his or her particular needs at a cost that can be significantly lower than a traditional law firm.

Our Virtual General Counsel program is a monthly, flat-fee service that allows a company to meet its day-to-day or week-to-week needs for legal support.

Most small to medium-sized businesses are at a disadvantage to their larger, better capitalized competitors in many ways including the ability to afford the services of a full-time general counsel. Without ready access to competent legal advice, basic, day-to-day legal issues frequently cannot be immediately addressed. The Dean Law Firm understands the needs of business owners who believe their companies are too small to afford the services of a full-time attorney to act as general counsel. This is why we created, and now offer to our business clients, a virtual general counsel program.
