Ijames Law

"An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure."

-Benjamin Franklin

This is the motto of our firm in an ever-evolving world of entrepreneurship and ownership, which requires owners to be smarter than the legal pitfalls of tomorrow. We understand that the last thing any person wants to do is leave their business or personal affairs unprotected.

Yet, that is often the result when parties rely on navigating through business and personal transactions without first consulting with a Reno business attorney, or when they rely on self-help methods and form contracts that can be found online. Call Ijames Law to make sure all your business law and personal transaction needs are met with efficiency, knowledge, and results.

Business Law

As a former business litigator, Heather A. Ijames has seen the aftermath of unguided legal transactions when they end up in court. Now as a Reno business attorney, Heather has devoted the entirety of her practice to spending that hour with a client to make sure the contract or deal is right, before a client has to hire an attorney and spend tens of thousands of dollars on a trial.

Our ultimate goal is to protect your personal affairs and your business in an overly litigious world. Each client is given the full attention they deserve by a top Reno business attorney so that they can make the right decisions ahead of them.
