Daily General Counsel™, a Company Offering Low-Cost Legal Product for Massachusetts Small Businesses, Launches Today

Daily General Counsel™ Offers One Day and Done™ Service With a Single Affordable Rate to Reach an Underserved Market

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwired - Jan 16, 2014) - Daily General Counsel™, founded by Boston veteran lawyer Jan Glassman, launched today after a successful trial run. Comprised exclusively of highly experienced, former in-house lawyers, Daily General Counsel™ offers legal services for small businesses that historically have been unable to afford a lawyer to resolve their routine and pressing legal problems. A Daily General Counsel™ lawyer spends a full day working side-by-side with a business owner, on-site at the client's place of business, for a very affordable flat fee of $1,500. The company's goal is to reach the underserved market of small businesses that neglect their legal problems until they become bigger, more immediate and more costly to resolve, or who try to solve legal issues on their own without a lawyer, often making them worse. 

The lawyers at DailyGC™ are familiar with a broad range of legal and business issues and are committed to giving back to their communities by working for small local businesses at sharply reduced rates. The work is One Day and Done™, so the company knows in advance the full cost of the legal representation. DailyGC™ also seeks to educate and empower the company owners, in order to reduce the need to hire a lawyer in the future for similar issues.

"By spending an entire day with a Daily General Counsel™ lawyer, we received guidance and counsel on numerous legal issues," said Aaron Albert, president of Harodite Industries, Inc. "Not only did our Daily General Counsel™ lawyer resolve a potentially explosive employee issue with a brilliant no-cost solution, but she quickly helped us figure out how to prevent the issue from ever arising again."

"Small businesses are the backbone of our economy," said Jan Glassman, CEO of Daily General Counsel™. "They need top quality legal services as much as large companies, but they often cannot afford a lawyer or are fearful of the potential costs. At DailyGC™, we are committed to removing those barriers and helping small companies and startups by affordably providing our knowledge and experience as in-house counsel to their sales, operations, administration and other pressing issues. In this way, we will help them maintain viability and increase their contributions to the local economy." 

Prior to founding Daily General Counsel™, Jan Glassman worked for 15 years as General Counsel of a national management consulting firm, where she rose to the positions of Director and Senior Vice President. Prior to that she held judicial clerkships in Ohio and Boston and was a litigation associate in the Boston-area law firms of Burns & Levinson and Mofensen & Niccoletti. Ms. Glassman is a Fellow in the Startup Leadership Program, an international program for outstanding founders and innovators.
