Our Team

Passion. Experience. Diligence.


The Philosophy at Irvine Legal is to help businesses solve problems, protect growth and respect the budget in the process.  We provide hybrid billing structures that provide flat fee per service, monthly small business subscriptions and the traditional hourly rates.  Bottom line, we want to find the right fit for you so that our relationship is a value add and not just a line item expense.

We are not the right fit for every person or every business, but give us a call and see if we might be the right fit for you.
