You’ve landed on the only page online where you can buy certainty in your business

Easily legal-proof your business so you can secure your future, safely make every decision in your business, keep your earnings, and protect your coaching methodology – all with the help of a real lawyer.

Do your clients need legal templates? Email for licensing options.


You know legal is a must do, but if you’re being honest..?

You’re not totally sure what it means to “protect your business” (or what you’re protecting it from, exactly)

You don’t have to guess or Google anymore.

If you want certainty that you can:


Legally call yourself a coach (and be sure that your activities are coaching, and not anything that requires a license)


Keep the money you’ve earned (safe from baseless refund requests)


Advertise your amazing results legally, so you can command premium pricing and sell with ease


Know exactly what to say and do in case of a client disagreement over your services


Get credit and ownership of your most important, unique work, free from content thieves and copycats


Trust your team to step up to the plate and build a business you can rely on (and take breaks from)


Provide safe communities for your clients to be vulnerable and get results, together


Invite clients to in person events and retreats without taking on personal responsibility for their health and safety... and much more.

you’re in the right place.

Legal – when done right* (more on that in a moment) – can buy you certainty and feel seamless while it protects your personal money from business problems, stops payment drama with clients before it starts, shields your best work from copycats, and minimizes interpersonal shenanigans with team, community, and collaborators (whew!)

Here’s what it looks like:

When your legal is wrong, you’ll know because: 

  • You grabbed documents grabbed from Google, your certification program, or your own coach and “eyeballed” them – seems right
  • You’re not sure exactly what your documents mean or what you can do and say if things go wrong – but you’ll figure that you will worry about that later
  • There is lots of legal-ese that feels “off” for your brand
  • You’re not sure how to check if your agreements are missing something important
  • You’re relying on one document for every offer you have (like one-on-one coaching and groups)

When your legal is RIGHT, you’ll know because: 

  • Your documents are customized just for the way coaches do business by an experienced lawyer you actually know
  • They are proven to win in front of payment processors and courts)
  • You can rest assured you don’t just have something to sign now, but something that will actually work later when you need it
  • You have multiple documents that work together to achieve your goals (no legal problem is ever solved with just one – beware those who sell just one at a time)
  • They are super specific to how you do business (because no one is ever having a dispute over a generic term like pricing or the number of calls in your program)

Let’s do it right, together.

Here’s the legal recipe for biz certainty:

Oh hey! I’m Valerie Del Grosso…

…the lawyer friend to coaches.

I’ve been practicing law since 2008, and specifically working with coaches since 2015.

I founded Good Authority Co. to help serious coaches build their earnings and and leave an impact on the world. From Day 1 to $1 million and beyond, I’ve created intuitive legal solutions so you can focus on doing what you love without worry, at whatever stage of business you’re in.

It is my mission to make sure that what you buy from me works. I rely on fifteen years of courtroom and dispute resolution experience to design (very intentionally) practical and easy to use solutions so you can get the outcome you want without losing momentum in your biz if something goes wrong.

I’m a huge believer in coaching, too, and that love for the industry and my own coaches means that I never offer legal solutions that don’t also feel good in your business.
