Equine Law

I enjoy helping my equine law clients in several different legal practice areas. Please review the list below and click on the link to each page to learn more about that practice area, as well as business consulting.

Estate planning: I explain and draft estate planning documents that work best for your specific equine lifestyle. I draft wills, trusts, durable powers of attorney, health care proxies, advance directives, HIPAA releases, and declarations of homestead. I also draft horse trusts so that your horses are taken care of in case of your incapacity and when you die.

Business Law: Your equine business can be the fulfillment of your dreams and can provide you with financial security and freedom. I help you with business formation, legal advice, and business documents.

Trademarks and Copyrights: You work hard to make your equine business successful. Registering your trademark is a way to protect your brand. A copyright protects original artistic works, such as books and photographs. I help you understand the law and file for trademark and copyright protection. I also respond to Office Actions if you filed for your trademark or used an online company and were denied your mark.

Contracts: I draft equine liability forms, boarding contracts, lease contracts, and more to make your business transactions safe and profitable. I also review your contracts to make sure they protect you and your b

Nonprofit Law and Compliance: As a nonprofit professional for more than 20 years, I understand the passion involved in forming and running a nonprofit, including horse rescues and equine-assisted therapy nonprofits. I couple that experience with my legal knowledge to help you form a Massachusetts and a federally-recognized horse nonprofit. I also help you understand the legal issues involved in running a nonprofit and file the documents to remain in compliance with nonprofit laws.

Equine Business Consulting: I can provide you with outstanding equine business consulting because I have the right combination of business and equine industry knowledge. As an attorney who spent more than a decade working as a horse professional, I have familiarity with the many issues horse people face because I have witnessed them first hand. I am also a business woman with a solo law firm, so I have the experience to help you understand how to run a business.

Contact me today about any of the above practice areas and consulting. Please note that I do not do any kind of litigation.
