Imagine: You’re an independent artist who earns an income on a project basis. You’re hired to complete a work of art. You spent hundreds of dollars on supplies, weeks in the planning phase, and months working on the piece. You’ve received partial payment and are expecting the final payment after completion.
You complete the work and are pleased with the creation. You expect that your client will be pleased as well, and are excited to receive the final payment. That payment never comes. The client suddenly has “concerns” about the work of art.
Months go by, and you still haven’t received payment for what you’ve done. Thousands of dollars that you depend on to live, unpaid. You reach out to your client, they don’t want to pay you what you deserve. You feel stuck.
What do you do?
This is the situation that Clark Law’s client found themselves in. They reached out to the Washington Area Lawyers for the Arts, and was connected to Clark Law. After a few short weeks, attorney Victoria Clark was able to negotiate a payment for the client. The client had a check in hand, money that they needed to continue creating.
How much did Clark Law charge our client? Absolutely nothing. Why? Because we prioritize giving back, and will always make sure pro bono is a part of our practice. The more successful we are, the more we will continue to help those in need.
