Business Clients

Your business isn't cookie-cutter, so your legal plan shouldn't be, either. A variety of options are available to meet your needs. There are plans at multiple price points to fit your budget.


Employment Law

This is the main practice area for business clients. The practice focuses on preventative service to help your business stay in compliance with federal, state, and local employment laws. Our goal is to keep you in compliance with the law and out of court. Hourly rates for legal advice and consulting start at $150/hr.

Flat fee services include:

  • Representation at unemployment hearing - $150
  • Employee handbook review and revision - $200 for handbooks 50 pages or less; $300 for handbooks longer than 50 pages
  • Employee handbook from scratch - $400
  • Half day employee training on either diversity/nondiscrimination in the workplace or prevention of sexual harassment in the workplace - $500
  • Full day employee training on both diversity/nondiscrimination and prevention of sexual harassment - $800
  • "Welcome to Arizona" value package, designed for businesses relocating to or opening a new office in Arizona. This package includes a review of your employee handbook, policies and procedures, and payroll practices for compliance with Arizona law. It also includes an overview of Arizona specific employment laws so that you'll be prepared to open your doors here. - $500
