More Than A Lawyer

Many business lawyers are doing what they believe is best for their clients, however, they may not have the experience of working in a business. I do have that experience and it has shaped the way in which I approach issues for my clients.

I know firsthand how difficult it can be to balance running a business, delivering on services or products, and maintaining a positive corporate culture. I created Framework Legal to meet the various and sometimes competing needs that business owners face on a daily basis with practical advice and predictable pricing.

If you were to ask our clients what sets Framework Legal apart from our competition, they would tell you that I take the time to learn the inside of their businesses, I make myself available, and I work as an extension of their team.

If that sounds like the kind of partnership you want with your lawyer, let’s talk. Contact our team today and let’s discuss how Framework Legal can help you scale your business.

Biography

Juliet’s experience is diverse - giving her a unique perspective into the day to day issues facing businesses.

Law is actually a second career having spent her first as a journalist in television news for almost a decade. After completing her JD, cum laude at ASU in 1998, she began her legal career as a civil litigator at a large law firm, tackling complex commercial disputes. She has worked in the public sector supervising 380 lawyers and staff statewide as the Division Chief Counsel for the Child and Family Protection Division of the Attorney General’s Office.

Juliet knows what it is like to work inside a business, gaining her most valuable transactional experience as a Vice President and In-House Counsel for a large Phoenix ice cream franchisor. Juliet not only handled the company’s regulatory disclosures and helped run the legal department, but she also worked with the heads of all of the company’s business units including Human Relations, Real Estate, Marketing, Franchisee Relations and Product Development. She was regularly tapped by C-suite executives to assess and address crisis situations, strategic issues, and help guide interdepartmental business initiatives.

Our Reviews

"

"I am the owner of a small business that operates in the Phoenix area. We ran into an issue with a bad player who was attempting to use their deep pockets to squeeze us in an unethical way. We did not have the money or the expertise to fight them in court. We hired Framework Legal to give us the assistance we needed. Juliet and her team did a masterful job of using their knowledge to protect our interests. I heartily recommend Framework Legal!"

"Juliet was such an asset during the process of selling my two franchises. She helped me along the way and wrapped everything up in a timely manner. She was always available and even contacted the franchisor when they tried to strong arm me and resolved the situation. Highly recommend."Sandy
