Cost-Efficient Representation

ChaseLawyers℠ provides legal advice and consultations to artists at a special rate, starting at $350. We will take the time to answer questions and fully explain legal options relating to plagiarism concerns and/or the use of photography, paintings and designs in commercial products. With our lawyers, your art and creativity will be protected by law.

ChaseLawyers℠ also helps visual artists protect their work and collect the money owed to them by individuals or art dealers. While this may require a lawsuit if the artwork is being sold or used in large quantities, writing a tough demand letter will often be sufficient. For a modest flat fee, our attorneys can draft a letter addressing the clients’ concerns and demanding what they are owed.
