As an entrepreneur, you put so much time, energy, capital, and heart into building your brand and developing your business. You know you need to protect your business, but you’re not sure where to start. An internet search sends you diving down a rabbit hole for hours, and it’s still not clear what you actually need to do or how to make it work for your business. It’s much more fun to create. So…“get legal” is bumped down to the bottom of your list. Again.

Let’s check that off your list. We develop a legal plan for you: what you need now; what you’ll need as you grow and scale. And we do so with a clear budget, so that you can balance the needs of your growing business.

A trusted

I’m so glad you’re here! I am Ashley Fillingim, a lawyer and an entrepreneur who is creating and growing right beside you. I would love to hear what you are creating, who you are helping, and what you are dreaming for the growth ahead.

I spent two decades at a top-tier international law firm—including over 10 years as a litigation partner—representing clients in complex, high-profile, bet-the-company cases. It was great! But something was missing…

I left “Big Law” and launched Sandstar Law with the dream of making entrepreneurs feel safe, empowered, and supported. I’m here to show you that law doesn’t have to be intimidating or overwhelming.

We’ve got you!

I have worked with Ashley one on one and also through group training sessions I have participate in. I appreciate how knowledgeable and easy to work with she is. Ashley has helped me address some legal concerns I had when I started my business and has continued to provide guidance along the way. She has certainly made this journey so much easier and I appreciate all her expertise!

Ashley is one of my favorite people in the world and a badass boss babe attorney!  She is constantly teaching me ways to protect my businesses, collaborating with me along the way.  As entrepreneurs, we don’t know what we don’t know … but Ashley will break it down and make it real and actionable.

Marissa Imon

Before meeting with Ashley, I was terrified of all things legal. I felt so in over my head and clueless! But Ashley brings this beautifully comforting spirit to the process that instilled me with a sense of confidence, security, and clarity—where I once felt hopelessly lost. She is so patient and kind and felt like my own personal legal cheerleader. She made me feel safe.  I’m so happy to have her in my corner.

Are You Protected?

Are your personal assets protected and clearly separate from your business assets? Is your brand secure? Are you certain that you are not infringing someone else’s brand? Are your business relationships locked down with appropriate contracts, tailored to you? Is your website legally compliant?

Even if you have some of these things in place, how long has it been since you have taken a careful look to be certain they still fit the business you’ve grown?
