Immigration and business and lawyers

. . . with practical insight

Choosing a lawyer is an important step for entrepreneurs and those hoping to immigrate to the US.

At a minimum you may want a lawyer who:

  • Understands the business strategy of your startup company.
  • Uses real business experience to guide you through the nuances of business and law.

That is the essence of JORDAN COUNSEL.

Boardroom Insight.  Legal Solutions.SM


Transparency.  Flexibility.  Creativity.

You already know the importance of finding a lawyer who can guide your company through its formative years. Moreover, you may hope your lawyer shares your company’s values.

Similarly, we hope our clients appreciate our values.


We are direct regarding the scope and nature of the legal services we will provide for you. We endeavor to fully understand your strategic goals so that the outcome of our service meets your expectations. Moreover, our flat-fee rates help you manage your budget, with no unwanted surprises at the end.


We understand that startups have an inherent advantage compared to larger competitors: size. More specifically, a startup can leverage its lean, non-hierarchical organizational structure to act with speed and flexibility. We value such agility and are also adaptive to our clients’ needs.


We have a passion for innovation and understand the uncertainty facing entrepreneurs and startups. We therefore strategize with our clients on options for mitigating risk. Instead of only pointing out legal obstacles, we provide our clients with business-friendly legal solutions.


We are veterans of corporate boardrooms who understand the nuances of business and law.
