In 2005, Gina started a marketing company and couldn't find a lawyer that was willing or able to help a startup like hers. After hearing similar stories from other entrepreneurs, she decided to dedicate her practice to serving startups and small businesses. With business education paired with real-world experience, she provides her clients with business-minded legal advice that addresses all facets of business ownership. She serves as a “consigliere”, much like Robert Duvall's character in “The Godfather,” except with considerably less violence.
