Overview

As a millennial lawyer, I’m focused on breaking tradition. As a different, and new kind of lawyer, my practice takes a desire to be my own boss, a well-honed knowledge of social media, as well as a sharp focus on results and completing tasks as efficiently as possible–and combines them into a one-of-a-kind legal practice on the cutting edge of technology and changing legal services.

Olimar Law provides a comprehensive service model to fill in those gaps that often get overlooked in a business’ day-to-day operations. Legislative assistance and online reputation management, like life insurance, are difficult to justify paying for until a crisis comes and it’s too late. A crisis can manifest as a disgruntled client taking a sledge hammer to your business’ online reputation or a critical bill being passed without your input to lawmakers. In an era where empires rise and fall in the digital landscape and where citizens have an access to lawmaking like never before, investing in legislative assistance and reputation management is one of the most financially sound decisions you can make for your business or organization. 

By contracting with a millennial lawyer, you are investing in a long-term solution with an eye towards changing technology and social norms. Contact me at (203) 397-6015 or gabriella@olimarlaw.com if you’re ready to work with a different kind of lawyer.
