There are many things you need to do when setting up your own law firm, from securing business licenses, malpractice insurance and bank accounts to buying furniture, legal research materials, and computer software and equipment. Of all the tasks involved, selecting a logo for my new firm was by far the most enjoyable task. That’s one of the perks of running your own business. You can make all the fun decisions on your own.
In choosing the name of the firm itself, Koehler Law, I had decided to go for something a little bit more modern than the traditional “Jamison Koehler, Attorney at Law” or “Law Office of Jamison Koehler.” So I needed a logo to match that.
For this I turned to my trustworthy and gifted younger sister, Mary Anne Brush. Mary Anne is first and foremost a writer. But she is also very talented when it comes to graphic design. She had previously designed the logo for my brother-in-law’s company, PGM Systems, in western Massachusetts and then for my wife, Susan Burke, when Susan launched her own firm, Burke O’Neil.
So, who else could I entrust this to but Mary Anne? Mary Anne also did my business card (pictured above) and letterhead. The results speak for themselves.
