Counsel on Demand
And when your legal services are prepaid you don’t have to think twice about whether it’s worth the cost to make sure you get the legal advice necessary to approach a situation the right way, update your handbook to reflect the latest changes in the laws, or ensure your front line staff have the training they need to do their jobs in compliance with the law (it usually is worth the cost, but we know that those bills can be a shock).
Unsure if your business needs unlimited legal counsel on demand? Set up a complimentary meeting with Brandy Pirtle-Guiney, who will get to know your company and get a sense of the range of support you need. Following the meeting, Brandy will create a customized plan to meet your company’s specific legal needs, covered by a simple flat-rate monthly payment – eliminating the uncertainty of legal bills so it’s easier to get the help you need when you need it. There is a one-time on-boarding fee for this service.
Counsel on Demand services can include:
Unlimited legal advice
You’ll never have to worry about how much it will cost to get an answer from your attorney about an issue you’re coming up against. With Counsel on Demand, your calls and emails get you clear, timely, answers, not confusing, growing, bills. Whether you want to make sure you understand a new law, gut check an HR decision, or make sure you’re approaching an issue legally and fairly, Counsel on Demand clients have the convenience of an in-house attorney just a phone call away.
Document Drafting and Review
You can rest assured that you have a trusted advisor to review all binding documents and create those that you need. PGL will review, advise, and help you resolve potential issues with leases, employee contracts, contractor or vendor Agreements, cease and desist/demand letters, service agreements, and other legal documents relevant to your business.
PGL will also assist in drafting contracts, agreements, and demands for your business.
Responding to Agency Complaints
In the event of an administrative complaint or investigation, PGL will handle your defense. PGL will also represent your business in unemployment hearings. In some cases, PGL will perform internal investigations to support your defense. Litigation and complex investigations are subject to additional fees and may be serviced by our highly-trusted partner firms.
Management Training on Legal Compliance
Managers can expose your business to liability through their actions. PGL provides managers with ongoing training on updates to the law to ensure they can do their jobs well and keep your business compliant. This type of training, which can be provided on your premises or via recorded webinar, is the best preventative measure to avoid facing legal issues in the future.
PGL will provide on-site all-staff trainings annually as needed. These trainings are an opportunity to address legal changes that may affect the workplace, update staff on workplace policies, reinforce legal requirements in public-facing industries, and answer staff questions. PGL will facilitate guest speakers as part of these trainings as needed.
Clients will be provided with regular e-newsletters highlighting updates on new laws, rulemaking, or judicial decisions that affect their operations.
While most of our work together can be completed remotely via telephone and email, Brandy will travel to your office within the Portland Metro area for all in-person meetings without additional travel charges. Located outside the Metro area? Not a problem! Technology is incredible - let’s talk about options.

"I own a small business with basic small business needs. We need an attorney from time to time to help with contracts, employee problems, and general legal questions. We've worked with Brandy for almost 5 years, and she is consistently awesome. She is smart, thorough, and most importantly - she doesn't just do what we ask her to do. Instead, she asks great questions and assesses the entire situation to make sure she understands thoroughly. As she is fond of saying, it's better to pay her hundreds to prevent litigation than thousands to defend against it! I strongly recommend Brandy to any small business looking for a first-rate general business attorney."
