Hi, I’m Tristan. I’m an attorney for small businesses. But I’m definitely not your average attorney.

Here’s what I’m about.

Honesty & Transparency

I’m all about transparency – Read about my pricing.

Making the law accessible

I won’t talk down to you. I actually want to help you understand the law! In fact, I created an entire website for that very purpose, called Law Soup.

My background

I help people start and grow small businesses of all types, including freelancers, e-commerce, medical clinics, social enterprises, and so much more. I’ll handle the legal stuff so you can focus on growing your business and doing what you love. I’ve been in the legal field since 2009, and have been a licensed California attorney since 2013.

On a personal note, I love yoga and hiking in Malibu or Griffith Park.

Mostly I love connecting with people, and good conversation. So let’s chat!
