Case for Legal Timeout

Heels & Helmets understands that to truly join the conversation at the office, you must know more than scores.  When the conversation gets deep, you will need to understand what is happening in the boardrooms of sports leagues and franchises.  We also want to be a resource for you as you read through contracts for youth sports camps to high school athletics and college recruitment to preparing for the draft.


What is free agency?


What is a franchise player?


What are college players committing to on signing day?


Can my children work if they play collegiate sports?


In Legal Timeout, we will answer those questions and provide you with the business and legal perspective on sports topics.


Until the next timeout,

SM Esq
