What Our Clients Say About Us

Our Process

Working with the operations side of our clients’ businesses has shaped how we practice law and interact with clients. We know that our legal advice has to be practical and actionable. Delivering a legal answer with the pros and cons is not all that a business owner needs. They want to know if they can do it; what is the cost and what is the risk. It’s easy to advise a business owner to terminate an employee who violated company policies, but if termination will have serious consequences that may not be the right solution. Legal decisions in business are seldom black and white. We work with business owners and management teams to construct practical solutions that weigh the legal vulnerability with the financial risk.  Small businesses operating in Phoenix, Tucson, Mesa, Chandler, Gilbert, Glendale, Scottsdale, Peoria, and Tempe, as well as residents of other adjacent communities, are regular recipients of legal counsel and representation from our firm.
