So you have had that “light bulb” moment.  That awe-inspiring idea for a website or app that is going to change the world.  You get advice from friends, family and even strangers about your idea.  Part of that “advice” pool should be an attorney that knows the challenges that you are about to face.

There are many attorneys that claim to specialize in the practice of website and app legalities, and only a few that have real world experience.
