Don’t tough it out, and don’t hesitate. The responsibilities and deadlines of lawyering are intense, and anxiety, depression or substance misuse can cloud your judgment. Call the Vermont Lawyers Assistance Program. 1-802-355-4352http://www.lapvt.org/

Helping Writers, Musicians and Artists

It isn’t easy being creative. That idea for the new novel or refrain for a new song that hits in the middle of the night, the sculpture that never seems to be finished, or the twenty paintings you need to get done and framed in time for clients to pick up for holiday presents -- who has time to deal with the business end of it all? As a musician and published nonfiction, fiction author and poet, Attorney Hill is well aware of the problem. Although legal services cost money, they are a worthwhile investment in your artistic vision. Getting your copyrights registered, forming an LLC or making sure your will includes provision for transferring your intellectual property interests helps protect the value of your creativity. Let Hill Attorney PLLC help you out with that -- so you can get back to the drawing board.
