SUMMARY

    Hands on owner of a sole proprietorship with multi-industry experience and a proven track

    record of maintaining a good reputation of zealously and competently representing my clients for

    the past 9 years. I successfully handled many different types of legal matters by devoting my

    attention to each matter, applying my business background in finance and economics to the

    situation and factoring in compassion in giving my legal advice and strategy to my clients. I like

    the practice of law because it combines some of my most favorite things: creativity, change,

    intellectual debate in the pursuit of helping another human being, the ability to give back, and a

    good game of chess.

LICENSE

    California State Bar Number 210876 as of Dec. 5, 2000

EXPERIENCE

    Owner 2001 to present

    Law Offices of Lenore Albert

    This practice originally started representing a select clientele base by providing legal services for

    all of their legal needs from estate planning and business transactions to litigation. As the

    business developed, this office became known for handling cases in 5 primary legal areas:

    business litigation, personal injury, contracts/agreements including estate planning, and

    intellectual property matters. My newest creation is a web based business model

    (www.interactivecounsel.com) that offers unbundled legal services to individuals and small

    businesses who find it economically more desirable to seek out limited representation during

    recessionary times. My responsibilities and achievements include:

    ? Overall day to day management responsibilities for this sole proprietorship which has

    contracted, expanded and changed over the years.

    ? Built a reputation, presumably, of zealous and competent representation of my clients

    because the opposition retained some of the largest preeminent firms to defend against claims

    I filed on behalf of my clients. The list of opposing firms include:

    o K&L Gates, LLP “approximately 1800 lawyers who practice in 35 offices located on

    three continents” K&L Gates, LLP,

    o Horvitz & Levy, LLP “largest firm in the nation specializing exclusively in civil appellate

    litigation” Horvitz & Levy, LLP

    o Bryan Cave LLP, “a leading business and litigation firm…[w]ith, more than 1,100

    attorneys and other professionals in 19 offices worldwide” Bryan Cave LLP

    o Jones Day * Ford, Walker, Haggerty & Behr * Arent Fox, LLP * Cihigoyentche,

    Grossberg & Clouse.

    ? Assisted persons and small companies in starting up a variety of business ventures,

    modifying them, expanding them and in some cases, winding them down and dissolving

    them.
