Want to see how we can help you create the legal infrastructure you need to grow and build your business the RIGHT way?

Here’s what our clients who are mental health professionals are saying:

“The process was smooth and went quickly, they were able to help me in a timely manner and made sure I understood the moving pieces along the way. Laurie was very knowledgeable in the details of my matter and took the time to explain things to me in a way that I could understand.”

Christie Matlosz, Fresh Start Counseling, PA

“Laurie Lee and her team have been tremendously helpful with several issues that have arisen over the past couple of years. Not only is Laurie Lee a great attorney, she is also a phenomenal business coach.”

Amanda Hannah, River's Edge Counseling Center

“I’d give them 6 stars if I could. As a mental health practice owner I’ve always found the legal side of business to be intimidating and quite frankly- scary!  I never doubt that I’ll receive top notch service from them and feel very confident in their expertise in the mental health space.”

Rachel Cohen, Seaside Counseling Center, LLC

We created this InfoSheet to help you better understand how we can assist with your particular profession’s legal needs.

For mental health services, the two areas of most concern are highlighted below:

Entity Structure

The type, organization, structure, and governance of your business is the most basic aspect of your foundation.

Regulatory Compliance

Many service professionals are governed by specialized rules and regulations in addition to general regulations.

Client Relationships

Having direct, honest relationships with your clients is the key to repeat business, referrals, and long-term success.

Vendor Relationships

When you’re the client, understanding the agreement and how the relationship should work is critical.

Worker Relationships

Relationships with an employee or independent contractor need to be defined to protect your business and clients.

Owner Relationships

Without structure or guidelines to establish expectations and accountability, business partners can pose a high risk.


An important part of protecting your brand is making sure you trademark rights are in place.


Copyrights capture a broad range of things you create for your business or for your clients.
