Hi there, I’m Kiff.
Lawyer | Author | Speaker
I help creatives add ease to the legalese of running a creative business. I’ll provide your audience with practical, actionable legal information about how to protect their ass(ets).

Kiffanie’s Defeating Copycats session was incredibly helpful and informative. I left the session with a newfound knowledge base on assessing various copyright infringement scenarios and determining best courses of action.
Her extensive knowledge and experience with the issues that artists frequently encounter are paired with an intuitive way of making legal terms and concepts understandable. It’s comforting to know that there is an expert lawyer who not only knows her stuff but can break down intimidating information into digestible parts.

Kiffanie provided an invaluable perspective on the Craftcation panel I moderated. She not only has a wealth of legal knowledge, but she knows her audience: artists and creatives who may not have a strong handle on the legal side of their business– myself included! Kiffanie makes the information easily accessible. She also has an engaging presence and is fun to work with. Any creative business owner, or conference geared towards artists trying to make a living, would benefit from Kiffanie’s perspective and expertise.
Before I attended Kiffanie’s workshop, Increasing trust and sales in your online business, I knew I wanted to grow my online store, but I didn’t know what needed to happen next. From privacy policies to terms of service to what is required and what isn’t, what’s a good idea and what isn’t, Kiffanie was able to explain legal concepts in a clear, non-jargony manner. Her legal prowess shined through, but her personal experience as an artist and commitment to making things relatable and practical took all of the stress out of understanding these concepts.

My goal is to add ease to the legalese. And because I think basic legal resources should be available to every creative, I create a lot of free content.
One of those pieces of free content is my Friday morning emails, that I like to call my weekly coffee chats. On Fridays, I’ll pop in your inbox with a way to cut through the red tape and inject ease. And I end each email with a question. I spend the rest of the morning replying to your answers.
