About me

I help small, online, and home-based business owners start and build more profitable businesses and achieve the goals they’ve set for their company.

In fact, I founded my practice Small Business Legal Services, P.C. specifically to work with the owners of smaller businesses. At my firm we specialize in working with clients to help create systems, strategies and legal solutions tailored to your business, personality and situation. The goal is to make sure that whatever we come up with works intitutively for you, so you own it. I am dedicated to doing it this way because at the end of the day, a system or strategy, even a legal soultion only works if it’s being used.

You can also be sure, that as a client, me and everyone on my team will work hard to earn and keep your trust, starting by just listening to you, about what you want, what you dream about for your business, and even what you feel is holding you back. In fact, I encourage dreaming, followed by doing the work to make it happen.

As part of our sessions we’ll go over the steps you need to take to achieve your goals, to make the dream real. We’ll look at all the options together, and my recommendations for what to do next and at each stage of the business going forward.  Of course, I respect your decisions on how we will ultimately proceed. I’m a business owner myself, so I get how important it is to understand it’s your business; that’s also why I work so hard on making sure the solutions I offer will work for you, not just look good on paper.

At Small Business Legal Services, P.C. whether your small business is in your home, online or a more traditional brick and mortar enterprise you can be sure you’ll get our full attention.  All we work with are small business owners, it’s what we love to do. Whether you’re just starting out, still working your day job to make ends meet, trying to revamp a struggling business into a profitable one, managing the day-to-day operations of an existing business, looking to expand your company or figure out a viable exit strategy, as a business owner myself, I’ve been there. And, more importantly, I can offer you competent adivice to help you in whatever stage of your business you happen to be in.

In addition, I offer alternative and flat fee pricing as well cost-effective general counsel services, and I work hard to make myself available to my clients so you can ask questions and get answers, when you need them, on your schedule. 

For too long, the owner of smaller businesses have had to choose between hiring high priced lawyers or either trying to do the work themseves, or go to an online service and instruct someone else on how to do it for them.  At my firm, I hope to offer a third alternative by providing affordable, quality attorney services.

Customer Reviews

I am sharing my experience because of my satisfaction of contract preparation for a licensing agreement. As a co-owner of a small corporation, cost is always a factor in business decision. After calling around, we made our choice based on quoted cost and conveyence of confidence, understanding and capability. We relayed our needs and wants. In turn, we received an agreement that we felt was exactly what we wanted.

While executing licensing agreements with purchasers, we inevitably ran into an area of conflict. Refering to our agreement for clarification of a cure, we quickly recognized that we had “got our money worth”. We were fully protected and the conflict was resolved.

I simply can not say enough. Great job, great price!

I am a private duty nurse, that was in desperate need of an knowledgeable attorney to help me review a contract that I was given by a new client’s school district. Ms.Hamilton was very helpful from the moment she answered the phone. She was not only helpful but reviewed my contract in a timely manner, (which was greatly appreciate) She took her time while reviewing all of her suggestions which in turn made the contract more clear and concise. I love the fact she had pay pal as well, did not have to stop my already hectic schedule.

My husband and I had Pam to dissolve our LLC, she did everything and all from a simple 30 minute meeting. It was clean, concise, and easy on our part. Previously to her legal services, we also had Pam as our business coach. She was amazing in that aspect too. She reminded me of things I knew but didn’t put into practice, she taught us many things we did not know and all in all, she helped us grow our small business. Pam was a council to me when I had some decisions to make, a coach, and a friend. I would highly recommend her!

Ms. Hamilton was General Counsel for CDSC in Brooklyn, NY while I was the Director of HR there. In that capacity she guided me with Personnel Policy issues, provided Sexual Harassment Training for Management and Staff. She also handled the few cases of sexual harassment that did occur, keeping the agency out of court.

Ms. Hamilton negotiated all contracts that came through Human Resources, i.e. Health, Life, Disability insurances, Workers’ Comp, etc.

Now that I’ve retired, when I need legal services or advice I call upon Ms. Hamilton. She is an excellent attorney and I recommend her to anyone who needs legal counseling.

Pam is a great knowledgeable attorney she made sure that I’m safe with my business and she is flexible with payment on her fees and doesn’t charge a lot and I will be retaining her as my attorney
