I'm a new member -- I just joined June 2010 -- and am in the process of making the transition from amateur to pro. I'd welcome your recommendations for both tax advisors and business lawyers in the San Francisco Bay Area, who are knowledgeable about issues related to setting up and managing photography and/or creative arts businesses. Since I live in the Oakland-Berkeley area, I'd prefer recommendations for professionals serving the East Bay Area, but those based in San Francisco, the SF Peninsula or Marin County might also work.
Please accept my apologies if this is too narrow a query for this forum. Thanks, in advance, for your assistance!
