Kallas Legal, A Professional Corporation

<b>Kallas Legal, A Professional Corporation</b>

Your Legal Counsel Partner in Creating, Advising, and Protecting your Business Endeavors.

Firm Overview

Kallas Legal was founded on the basis of making big law firm representation accessible, at the same high quality level of service to small business owners, entrepreneurs, and corporations in our community.

As small business owners and entrepreneurs ourselves, we have discovered through our experience and extensive market research that the majority of small business owners do not have legal counsel on regular retainer. The primary reason for failing to keep counsel is because of a combination of cost and fear of the unknown. Admittedly, larger firms tend to cater more to the large corporations that are able to pay standard hourly rates which are often out of reach for neighborhood business owners, who are, ultimately, the backbone of our local communities.

To provide access to quality legal counsel, regardless of the size of the entity that initiates our solutions, Kallas Legal offers packages of legal services for fixed, affordable rates. Further, we take great pride in educating and communicating with our clients to demystify any legal concerns.

Without a doubt, we value each client, no matter the size or matter brought forth to us. We care about you and are committed to listening. Please feel free to call us today to schedule a free consultation.

Serena J. Kallas, JD, MBA

Serena J. Kallas has over 10 years of experience in large corporate, small business, and nonprofit settings. She works with startups, seasoned entrepreneurs, franchisees, and businesses of all sizes with their legal matters.

Ms. Kallas has a distinct combination of skills including legal issue spotting and analysis, organizational and financial analysis, business processes redesign and implementation strategies, so that the entities she is involved in supporting are structured (or at times restructured) on a holistically solid legal and operational foundation to prevent business disputes or issues.

However, when her clients face business challenges, she uses her in-depth knowledge of business operations and corporate governance to find understanding at all levels, focusing entities on common goals, and building accountability at every stage in order to represent her client's interests in solving issues whether by negotiation, alternative dispute resolution mechanisms, or litigation.

Ms. Kallas began her career learning the fundamentals of organizations through her family's businesses. She then worked for a national tire and wheel retailer where she led in process improvements for all office roles, safety program implementation, and staff development training. After several years, Ms. Kallas started working for an alternative dispute resolution firm that focused on partnering and mediation in the construction industry.

Throughout law school, Ms. Kallas clerked for different law firms and legal aid agencies and worked as well as a research assistant and teaching assistant to two different professors. During this time, she realized her passion and capacity to develop staff, leadership, and strategic direction, and her desire to help others form and understand the minute legal intricacies of corporations in domestic and international settings.

Ms. Kallas graduated summa cum laude from California State University, Sacramento with B.S. degrees in Business Finance and Risk Management and Insurance and University of the Pacific, McGeorge School of Law with a J.D. concentrating on both business and tax law.
