You’ll find Your Ad Attorney’s approach to marketing legal services avoids typical legal hurdles and makes better business sense for every size business.


Here’s what sets
Your Ad Attorney
apart:

Comprehensive marketing legal advice

Your Ad Attorney is an experienced marketing attorney — and business advocate. This balanced perspective developed from helping local, national, and global brands comply with business and consumer laws – and advocating in roles as outside counsel and in-house corporate counsel.

Approach to marketing law compliance

What’s legal is not always best for business. Your Ad Attorney balances what’s legal and what’s ethical with an intent to cultivate greater marketplace credibility and consumer confidence in your business, while complying with laws.  

Flat Rates

No hidden fees or surprise billing. You’ll receive a flat fee from Your Ad Attorney for each of your projects for price certainty. 

Predictable turnaround times

When can you expect Your Ad Attorney’s legal feedback for your project? Expect feedback in five business days, for most matters. Legal review predictability is essential in supporting your marketing production and timelines.

Clear legal feedback

Get plain English, not legalese from Your Ad Attorney. Each legal review project results in easy-to-understand points and summaries in a format non-lawyers will quickly and easily comprehend and implement.
