A Fractional General Counsel advises small to mid-sized corporate clients on a wide variety of business matters. Those clients, however, do not need a full-time lawyer to address these issues but still prefer to have a Go-To Lawyer who knows the client’s business, tolerance for risk, and preference for resolving conflicts. To align client interest and client service, The Coles Firm developed a Fractional General Counsel platform.  For a fixed monthly rate (from $1,000 – $5,000 per month), clients have access to a lawyer they know by name.  No more hourly rates.  No more bills for a phone call.  No more lawyers serving their firm instead of serving clients.  And no outsourced legal services to a foreign country or a lawyer you’ve never met.  The Coles Firm offers you peace of mind that your business has the resources of a larger company. If Mike is Your Go-To Lawyer, Your Business is Ready to Succeed.
