The workshop, Must Know Legal Strategies for women business owners was packed full of great information. The event, led by Attorney Chris Corpus, was on point for the women business owners in the room and the time went by very quickly. Really great information and Chris welcomed questions and discussion. He did an excellent job presenting and we would welcome him back as a speaker for NAWBO Cleveland again.


I recently started a bowling ball cleaning company and wanted an attorney who could take me from start to finish in setting up the business and protecting my interests. Chris Corpus provided excellent advice with quick response time, and explained issues to me clearly. 100% satisfied!


When I was ready to take my freelance writing business to the next level, I needed a smart, savvy attorney who could explain legal issues in a down-to-earth manner. More than one professional told me – “Oh, then you want Chris Corpus!” – and their recommendation was exactly right.
