Brand Photography for Lawyer, Jamie Lieberman of Hashtag Legal | NJ Brand Photographer
Jamie Lieberman isn’t your typical lawyer. As a founding partner of Hashtag Legal, a law firm serving those in the digital space, Jamie takes time to understand the complexity of online entrepreneurs and their businesses. Her team has provided legal services for businesses ranging from multi-million dollar corporations to small startups.
Head over to Jamie’s instagram and you’ll see she doesn’t fit the typical stuffy and intimidating lawyer persona. She is joyful, fun, edgy and approachable. Her goal is to make the legal side of running a business a little less scary and a lot more manageable.
Jamie works with most of her clients virtually over phone, skype, or messages. Because of this, her online presence is especially important to her business. She came to MikiFoto + Co in need of on-brand images for her website and social media that reflected her professional yet fun personality and approach to practicing law.
Jamie, tell us your backstory. What past experience do you bring to your current business?
After college, I worked four years in publishing before entering law school. I continued to work while attending school full time and maintaining a scholarship — graduating magna cum laude. Before deciding to practice on my own, I worked for a big NYC law firm and then for the government.
Six years ago after having my son, I wanted to find a way to enjoy the practice of law and found the only way I could do that was through my own practice.
What core messages do you want to share with your audience?
I believe legal services should be accessible, should not break the bank, and should be transparent.
Why do you do this type of work? Why is it important to you and for your clients?
Most businesses are missing a key ingredient in their plans for growth — a legal strategy. Using our knowledge and understanding of the business world, both online and offline, the firm helps our clients maximize their profit potential while protecting their assets.
I’m empowering entrepreneurs to protect themselves and helping them grow. My favorite part of the job is counseling clients and making the legal side of their business feel accessible, easy and safe. They know they have an ally in me — one who’s always available.
What values and core beliefs does your business stand for?
We stand for honesty, joy, and accessibility, and NO judgment.
What unique skills do you bring to your business?
I have the ability to connect with people. I’m empathetic and strive to make difficult concepts less confusing. My innate understanding of businesses and analytical mind make the legal side of business seem manageable to my clients.
What do you love to do most in your business?
I love partnering with my clients to grow their business.
Describe your ideal client. Who are you hoping to connect with through your images?
I work with entrepreneurs, online business owners and service professionals. My ideal client is either starting out but has a budget for legal or has been working for a while and needs a lawyer to have on call to help with growth. Most of my clients are professional women who are active on social media.
What problem do you solve for your clients?
I ease their fears about all things legal. I make them feel safe to do what needs to get done in their business.
What feelings do you want your clients to have after working with you?
I want them to feel protected — to feel relieved knowing they have me in their corner and excited to confidently move forward in their business.
What do you do for your clients that they don’t expect?
My firm speaks English, not legalese. I explain things that are scary or hard to understand with ease.
Since we specialize in working with entrepreneurs, service professionals, influencers, and online business owners, we “get” exactly how their business works.
I go above and beyond to be responsive.
What do you love to do outside of work? Describe your hobbies/Interests and life beyond the business.
I enjoy working out, spending time with my kids, photography, fashion, eating out, and traveling.
What are three words others often used to describe you?
People describe me as kind, loyal and outspoken.
