Last night I had dinner with a former college classmate, Nina Kaufman, who is a partner at Paltrowitz & Kaufman LLP, a New York City-based law firm that provides “wise counsel for growing businesses.” Nina is also an e-commerce entrepreneur, who founded and oversees a website called Wise Counsel Press, which provides legal resources and good advice to small business owners and entrepreneurs.

I bring up Nina and her business because I frequently hear small business owners talk about the need for good, affordable legal help in a variety of areas — from setting up a business or incorporation to employment and contract-related issues to intellectual property and patent searches. And I want to help them find the help they need, or at least point them in the right direction.

So I asked Nina what were the major reasons why small business owners came to her, and she told that most people came to her when there was a problem — and how much better it would be if entrepreneurs had a good attorney they could rely on and go to BEFORE there was a problem. Hence today’s blog post.

If you or someone you love (or just care about) needs some small business-related legal advice, check out these three great online resources:

And if you have a great SMB attorney or legal resource or piece of legal-related advice you would like to let others know about, let me know and I will add it to the list.
