Published on: 28th April, 2020

This week, the gang welcomes Jan Pierce, Bay View's friendly neighborhood lawyer to dispense some practical advice for artists, freelancers, and small businesses and non-profits on how to survive the uncertainty brought forth by COVID19.

The focus of Jan's practice is on assisting startups and closely-held businesses throughout the entire life cycles of their businesses and he gets great satisfaction helping them build and influence our city that we all love and call home.
