Meet Aleece McKnight, Esq.
Entrepreneurship and Trademark Attorney
I am a firm believer that faith surpasses all fear.
I left my security for your security. Allow me to explain. My career followed the expected trajectory: graduate from law school, pass the bar exam, get hired by an established firm, and continue the upward ascent to ultimate success. I was a managing office attorney with staff and corporate perks. I could pamper myself without a second thought and travel the world until my heart was content. To some, this was the life! Although the security of my then career path had its benefits, the truth is I was overworked and completely unfulfilled. That just wasn’t it!
Early in my legal career, I worked with creatives in the entertainment industry providing contract, copyright, and trademark services. How did my true passion get sidelined? The ideas of what I should be doing swayed me in a different direction. One sure thing about purpose is that when it’s in you, it will find a way to come out of you.
So, I pivoted.
Impassioned by the desire to ensure the legal protection of creatives and entrepreneurs, I took a leap of faith in launching the virtual Law Office of Aleece McKnight. With years of experience in trademark law, copyrights, and entertainment law, I diligently work for the protection and education of my clients as they grow their businesses and their artistry. From independent artists and small businesses to content creators and managers, I work to put the right protections in place so that my clients can do what they love knowing their assets are secured. By choosing to create my own path, I can provide dynamic legal services to my clients without them having to break the bank to have access to an attorney.
