Learn More About What Sets Us Apart

Our attorneys and staff have the skills and experience you need to resolve your case both quickly and effectively.

Most importantly, we take a different approach to legal services by focusing on ways we can solve the most common problems people have with law firms:

Problem: It's hard to get in touch with my attorney.

At Tingen Law, we’ve made a commitment to always respond to client contacts within one business day.

When you’re already dealing with the stress of an important legal matter, quick and consistent communication is very important.

Whether you want a simple update or you want to better understand the strategy in your case, our attorneys and staff will keep you in the loop at every step of your case.

Problem: I've heard about attorneys that will promise one thing and then deliver another, so I'm worried about what to expect.

No attorney can guarantee a specific result in your case.

Instead, we aim to help clients understand every aspect of their case before moving forward.

There’s no such thing as a “sure-thing” in the legal world, but we’ll do our best to make sure you know what to expect before you step into the courtroom.

Problem: I never know what's going on in my case, and my attorney never explains anything.

We believe that an informed client is a happy client.

From our firm’s extensive Knowledge Base to our client-focused consultation structure, we’ve developed our business around making sure our clients understand the ins and outs of their specific legal matter.

Problem: Attorneys are too expensive, and I'm worried that I won't understand where my money is going.

We believe in giving everyone access to justice, and we try to reflect this ideal in every aspect of our practice.

For this reason, we’ve taken steps to make the legal process as affordable and accessible as possible for all of our clients.

While it’s no secret that some types of cases can get expensive quickly, our attorneys ensure you only pay for the services you need.

Further, our transparent billing practices can help you know ahead of time exactly where your money is going.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Business owners are savvy people, and often have questions about why we’re the best fit for the job.

Check out our answers to a few of these frequently asked questions below, or call us at (804) 477-1720 to schedule a phone consultation with one of our attorneys!

The answer to this question will largely depend on your specific business and how you want to expand your operations in the future. However, most small business owners choose to register their businesses as limited liability companies (LLCs) due to the flexibility and utility of this entity type.

In Virginia, the Commissioner of Revenue or Department of Finance for your city or county website will issue your business license. You’ll have to go to their website or call them to figure out the specific requirements for your location.

Put simply, the different types of business entities all serve to adjust the liability, interest, and tax responsibility the owners have in the business. For example, in a sole proprietorship the owner takes full responsibility for all of the business’s liabilities, while a limited liability company (LLC), as the name might suggest, limits how much liability is passed on to the owner(s).

Generally speaking, yes, but it can vary from county to county and city to city. Most of these professions have official licensing boards through the Department of Professional and Occupational Regulation, so you’ll have to get a license from them. These professions include, but are not limited to, architects, engineers, barbers, real estate agents, and attorneys.

When you apply to establish a business in Virginia, your business name will automatically be registered for use throughout the Commonwealth. Sole proprietorships, which don’t require a formal business application, should instead register their name through a fictitious name or “Doing Business As” (DBA) filing with their city or county Clerk of the Circuit Court.
