Attorneys are something that no business ever hopes to have to deal with. I get that. From meeting with clients for over two decades, I understand that many business owners with legal issues oftentimes don’t even know where to start—or who they can trust. Others have had bad past experiences and are (understandably) hesitant about hiring another law firm. As a result, they put things off or hope that a situation will fix itself or just go away. In my experience, this rarely works out so well.
It’s a big reason I left life at one of the largest law firms in Arizona to start BHANDLAW, PLLC, a law firm combining my lifelong interest in technological innovation with the unique legal needs of tech, e-commerce, and high-growth companies and their founders.
I wanted to create a law practice that was responsive, cost-effective, and less bloated than what I was seeing out there. A way for business owners and management teams to speak directly with a knowledgeable attorney and get advice and quality legal work done when they needed it.
It’s with this aim that I don’t consider myself as an attorney so much as my clients’ business partner, helping them cut through the uncertainties of ever-changing laws and regulations. Not in a theoretical, ivory-tower way, but in a manner that’s understandable, stresses business practicalities, and their financial bottom line.
The law is complex and can be frustrating enough as it is (even for us lawyers!). For this reason, I am not a generalist. My firm focuses strictly on company startup and financing, technology and corporate transactions, and select intellectual property.
I am proud of the firm’s reputation and make sure every client and case is handled in a highly professional, diligent, and—most importantly-–ethical manner. If I cannot help you and do a great job, or do it on time, I will let you know and will do everything I can to find you someone who can. I encourage potential clients to look me up on the State Bar website and read our client testimonials and reviews.
In addition to being a member of the State Bar of Arizona in good standing, I am also an active member of the Arizona Bar’s Intellectual Property, E-Commerce and Technology, and Business Law practice sections and routinely participate in both local and out of state conferences and symposiums to stay up on the latest and anticipated developments in the law and how they will affect my clients. I am also admitted to practice in the U.S. District Court for the District of Arizona.
