My Mission and Goal For You
Hello beautiful people! I am Michelle Murphy, a Florida barred small business attorney who loves working with creative entrepreneurs and content creators to make sure that I am protecting your brand and content (aka stop the web copycats and poachers). Oh yea, and I am the owner of Wilson Murphy Law, P.A. As a small business attorney, my mission is to legally advise creatives and influencers navigating in this digital era.
As a former blogger and current small business owner, I am in the trenches with you business owners. I am in my business everyday as the marketer, the receptionist, the lawyer, and the CEO. But I passed the accounting stuff off. Trust me, I know my strengths and weaknesses, and I can proudly admit accounting is not one of them.
As business owners, we are flying by the seat of our pants most of the time, especially when it comes to the legal “junk”. We don’t care about the legal stuff until *ahem* poop hits the fan. Well, I am here to tell you… big mistake…HUGE (couldn’t help myself with The Pretty Woman reference). My goal is to convince you to be preventative, instead of reactive when it comes to the law. I want to help you sleep at night. And as business owners, we will take all of the chances we can to sleep. I don’t know about you, but I like to think of the bags under my eyes as Chanel.
My number one goal when I am working with you is to make the legal stuff easy to understand. Upon retaining my services, I will be your legal guide to protecting your brand (trademark), what you create (copyright), and your business assets (business formations and contracts). I will ensure that you are informed every step of the way, and I will be available to your business’s needs.
Now for the standard bio about me. I was fortunate enough to grow up in sunny South Florida. I graduated from Nova Southeastern University Shepard Broad College of Law, class of 2013.
After graduating, I took the bar, and became an attorney in Florida. Prior to starting my law firm, I worked at the Department of Justice in Washington DC, helping victims of 9/11. During this time, I not only developed legal skills, but cultivated compassion to those who were desperately in need of my help. I intend to transcend this compassion to my clients as I understand how demanding and EXHAUSTING it is to run a business. While working at the Department of Justice, I participated in pro bono cases, helping clients with debt collection, homeowners association issues, and homeowners insurance during Hurricane Irma.
I am ecstatic to be working with you and your baby, because let’s face it, your business is a baby that you are shaping and nurturing. And I intend to protect your baby/business the way the Beyhive protects Beyonce.
