There’s the old (sad, pathetic, and worn, I might add) joke “whaddaya call 500 lawyers at the bottom of the ocean?”A good start.  And I know that SOMEone will point me to a treasure trove of other lawyer jokes.J

So let me shed at least a little illumination on how to work with this prickly group of professionals. As a business owner, you need them.Like you need water to drink.Sure, you could live your life drinking Fanta®, or even pineapple juice, but you won’t be as healthy as you could if you drink (what’s the current count?) 8 glasses of water a day.  Same way that you could do your own legal work, or even rely on your accountant to handle some of it (egads!), but your business won’t grow up big and strong.

Here’s a handy little article hailing from the San Diego chapter of the National Association of Women Business Owners: What’s a Business Lawyer for Anyway? And if you have any questions, let me know!
