Napa Valley Register, June 21, 2010: Hudson & Luros Mark Second Anniversary
Link to original story
In 2008, Mary Hudson and Jason Luros saw a problem: with the economy in a tailspin, Napans and their businesses were facing pressure from all sides. Legal disputes were everywhere, and foreclosures, evictions and bankruptcies became commonplace. Legal rates were at stratospheric levels, so where could one find affordable legal services? There was nowhere to turn.
The original mission, to provide reasonably priced legal services in the areas that concern local Napa citizens, met the community’s needs. Hudson & Luros continue to focus on business and contract law, estate planning, real property and intellectual property law.
“Back in 2008, I said that it shouldn’t be so difficult to get affordable legal help.”
Luros continues to feel that law firms are missing out on a huge market by pricing themselves out of the budgets of most individuals and businesses. Hudson & Luros uses cost-saving technology and resources to keep rates in line with reality.
Hudson & Luros continues to work with the Napa County Chamber of Commerce to help clients starting businesses build networks, find customers and develop lasting vendor relationships.
They often refer clients to SCORE, the chamber’s consulting and advising service, to help business owners and managers answer complicated questions that don’t directly involve legal issues.
Hudson sits on several community boards, including Napa Valley Community Housing, California Women Lawyers, Napa County Women Lawyers and the Napa County Bar Association, and will be joining the Kiwanis Club of Napa’s board of directors later this year. Luros recently finished a one-year term as treasurer of the Rotary Club of Napa and volunteers for the Napa County Bar Association, Napa Valley Film Festival, Napa Learns and the Citizens Oversight Committee at Napa Valley College.
Hudson & Luros offers complimentary consultations to potential clients. Most legal services may be negotiated on a flat-fee basis.
