The Athena Legal Solutions Difference
Carolyn Janke.jpg

My name is Carolyn Jahnke, I'm an entrepreneur too and know what it is like to build a business from scratch. I know the sleepless nights and hours of work that go into bringing your dreams to life. I also know the fear that a misstep will bring it crashing down.

I started Athena Legal Solutions because too often small business owners and nonprofits avoid working with lawyers for fear of cost or thinking they are too small to need legal advice. But that isn't true. Any business or nonprofit should have a lawyer who is part of their team advocating for them, helping them avoid the legal pitfalls that could destroy all they've built.

Athena Legal Solutions exists to ensure small business owners and nonprofits don't have to struggle alone on their journey. The benefits of working with us include: 
Transparency, Flexibility, Expertise, and Understanding.
