Helping Small Business Owners Build Successful Companies, One Contract at a Time

A good contract is a thing of value… bringing solid revenue to a smaller company on a consistent, stable basis. Almost every business transaction starts with a contract and that is frequently the catalyst for small business owners to seek a relationship with a business attorney… they have been presented with a contract to sell their service or product; to lease office space; to partner with someone interested in investing and working in the business; to establish a line of credit with their bank.

Like you, we run a small business — our product is legal services. Like you, we are passionate about what we do — providing quality, experienced legal services delivered to small businesses in a timely, cost-efficient manner.

Widett and McCarthy is here to help you review, analyze and respond to those ever so important contracts and protect your business as it continues to grow. We start with that first contract and are available to serve as your "in-house counsel" — on-call when you need us, but not part of your company overhead.

Our client portfolio includes professional services companies, product manufacturers and distributors, restaurants, and consultants — the majority of which are established businesses that employ, on average, 10–200 personnel. All of them have one thing in common — the desire and talent to grow a successful entrepreneurial venture.

Our clients seek us out because they want to establish a relationship with legal counsel before problems arise. They want that first contract to be a good one, a thing of value to the company, and they want the consistency of regular review on each new contract. They want a lawyer they can count on as a sounding board, a legal advisor and a strong right hand. Likewise, we choose to accept and serve those savvy clients because they want the same quality of service that we are ready to deliver to them — each and every day.


Our practice is built upon a foundation of contracts reviewed, information shared, problems solved and challenges met as they arise.
