Have a legal question? Need to have a fast chat with an attorney? Jaimee Layton, owner of Forked River Florist in Forked River, New Jersey, did and she turned to the Society of American Florists.
“Another benefit that I took advantage of through SAF membership is the free legal advice,” Layton said. “When I was trademarking my business, I was able to contact an attorney free of charge. I sent her an email. She got back to me that day. And then a couple days later after she had done some digging, she answered all my questions, and there was no additional charge for it. And she was correct. So it was great.”
SAF partners with Paley Rothman, a Bethesda, Maryland law firm so members can get quick answers to business legal questions — for free. Through the partnership, SAF members can contact attorney Paula A. Calimafde (Kal-i-MAF-da) for a free 15-minute legal consultation on a variety of issues such as taxes, estate planning, employment law, leases and real estate, copy rights and trademarks, acquisitions and regulatory compliance. Members can contact Calimafde at (301) 951-9325. Be sure to mention your SAF membership.
