An excerpt from the Valley Business FRONT May 2013 story "Art: A legal definition" by Rachel Garrity
Executive Summary: The Creekmore Law Firm in Blacksburg has moved into the art sphere with a vengeance, showing and supporting artists and their work.
"Lawyer jokes are a lot like espresso drinks – everywhere, (or if you prefer legalese-type words, ubiquitous) – but fun to share and rarely as memorable as you thought they’d be. Lawyers themselves, though, defy accurate generalization just like every other group does, but most often share some basic characteristics. Then there is The Creekmore Law Firm in Blacksburg, Virginia.
The firm’s focus is on business litigation and business counseling, which often also includes issues of intellectual property. All pretty pinstriped, right? Not so.
