Creative Vision Legal

Creative Vision Legal is a law firm offering legal services tailored to small business owners, film makers, and others in the creative arts looking for affordable yet reliable service and advice related to intellectual property rights, internet law, starting a business, or legal considerations in running your business. While services provided by many online legal websites are not performed by a licensed, practicing attorney, all services offered by Creative Vision Legal are performed by California lawyer Michael J. Thomas. The firm delivers online legal services via a secure client portal utilizing end-to-end encryption where you can have questions answered, pay for services, and view, download, or upload documents in a safe environment.

The firm also serves the greater San Francisco Bay Area from a conveniently located office in downtown San Francisco that is close to all major transportation routes, and is a legal service provider with the Lawyer Referral Service of California Lawyers for the Arts (CLA).


Creative Vision Legal is different from non-lawyer legal service websites because for a comparable price, every package offered includes a 30-minute consultation with a licensed, practicing attorney. Using information gathered from an interactive questionnaire in your secure, personalized client portal and from your initial consultation, the firm delivers a solution customized to your needs, whether it is a band partnership agreement, a licensing agreement for your photos or artwork, or bylaws or an operating agreement as part of a business formation package for those looking to incorporate a business or form an LLC.


Creative Vision Legal is committed to your continued success, and shows it in a number of ways. For instance, the firm uses initial consultations not only to gather necessary information, but also to get the “big picture” vision you have for your small business, band, or artistic career. Some packages offered also include follow-up services such as:

  • A 30-minute consultation approximately 1 year after your business formation to assess and address the legal needs of your company, and


Creative Vision Legal also shows its commitment to your success by making its services affordable for artists, musicians, and small business owners via flat-fee, transparent pricing for legal service packages at rates comparable to other online legal service providers. For other types of legal help not listed, a reasonable hourly rate applies, and payment plans can be negotiated.  Payments can be made in the firm’s secure client portal via a trusted 3rd party payment processing company.  The firm can also accept checks, but this method of payment will delay initiation of services.

I had an excellent experience working with Creative Vision Legal. Mike was quick to respond and really put in the extra work needed to ensure that our case would succeed. He is not only friendly and easy to work with, but he is very thorough and really knows his stuff! I highly recommend contacting Creative Vision Legal for your legal needs.
