Practical advice specifically tailored to your unique circumstances

Any small business owner in the Phoenix area must contend with a number of legal matters related to business formation, including agreements, transactions, disputes and the creation of corporate entities. There are often laws, restrictions and obscure codes that most Phoenix small business owners are unaware of; legal restrictions that could derail their success if not addressed. At Law Offices of Donald W. Hudspeth P.C., our Phoenix attorneys near you take the time to explain the legal requirements and warn of potential pitfalls. Drawing on our experience as attorneys, business people and business owners, we are able to discern the most favorable structure for your new business, such as an LLC, a partnership or an S corporation.
