During the COVID-19 pandemic, we have created a virtual consultation center as well as supporting individuals throughout the legal process providing any necessary resources they need. We also offer affordable legal support for Veterans.
NNBW: What makes Northern Nevada such a great place to own and operate a business?
Answer: The convenience of all the business facilities and operations with the quick access to departments within the Biggest Little City makes Northern Nevada such a great and unique place. We can get things done in a reasonable timeframe whereas other places the bureaucracy hinders what is possible. Having access to the rich history of the west with such a short drive to rural Nevada while being so close to Lake Tahoe makes Reno unlike any other city in America. We have such diversity in our business sectors among manufacturing, agriculture and technology that no other state can compete with what Nevada brings to the table. I refer to Northern Nevada as the 2nd Silicon Valley because of how Nevada has been able to attract the largest technology companies in the world. Do not get me wrong, I would love a place on Strands Beach in Dana Point, California, but I am never leaving Reno/Tahoe.
NNBW: As a local business owner, why do you feel it’s important to give back to the community?
Answer: As a community we will get through this but right now we must support each other by any means possible. Through our work with the community, small businesses and individuals facing uncertain times, we are able to offer superior legal support and help guide individuals and businesses that require our services in a way that we know will make a difference. With my background as a professional boxer turned lawyer, and my past military experience, I’ve acquired a unique skillset and have learned about adapting quickly and overcoming obstacles. Our team is doing everything they can to stay healthy, support our clients and still give back to the programs we have always committed to like youth programs, sports programs, seniors and veterans.
NNBW: What are you doing to support other local businesses during the COVID-19 pandemic?

“While I cannot say with certainty what the business landscape will look like after the dust settles, I do believe it will never get back to the way it was before the shutdown,” advises Mike Bosma.
