Need legal assistance for your business? Not ready to hire an in-house attorney? We got you covered.
Many growing businesses require ongoing legal support to navigate novel risks and challenges to their viability. However, hiring an in-house attorney is often too expensive for small and medium sized businesses. Fat retainers for corporate lawyers at big law firms may also be out of reach.

"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!"
"Working with Juliet over the past few years has taught me that as you become more successful and your business becomes more complex, all you really have to do is think things through, do what’s right and it will all work out. Juliet’s knowledge of small business law is incomparable. She has helped us with several very different matters and guided us with intelligence, tenacity and compassion. I cannot overstate the value of connectedness, and Juliet’s network of sources and experts (“oh, we should talk to so-and-so”) delivers benefits far beyond the words written in a contract and hours devoted to a resolution."Richard S.

"Selling a business doesn’t happen overnight. It took us four years, starting with our commitment to, in Juliet’s words, get our “house in order.” Juliet was a true advocate, previewing, listening, and counseling us through the journey week by week. She is steady, thorough and no-nonsense direct, which relates directly to her stewardship of your money. At one point when a counter offer didn’t take, we were so done, more than ready to accept a less than stellar offer. She talked us down and assured us that we could do better. And we did, just xxx later. She was clearly working in our best interest. Juliet is the rare attorney who has no ego. At one point, we brought in a friend who works in real estate law to provide additional expertise. Anyone else in Juliet’s position would have taken offense, and would have been territorial. But Juliet clearly enjoyed the collaborative process and the opportunity to exchange knowledge. Just as important as her legal process and approach, is the passion and joy – and humor -- she brings to her work."Lynn B.

"My experience with Framework surpasses that of the big corporate firms I’ve worked with during my 35 years as a business owner. It’s not just Juliet’s expert counsel that sets her apart. It’s also the fact that I can call her any time of the day and she either answers the phone herself or calls me back ASAP. That’s really terrific. She knows my anxiety level is likely through the roof and the value and comfort her immediate attention provides. She has taught me to pick my battles in situations that are adversarial and to step back to allow her to guide me through all the if/then scenarios. Knowing that she has a network of legal resources close at hand is a tremendous asset. If I had to pick one word to describe how I feel working with Juliet, it would be “safe”… there’s no question my issues are going to be resolved expediently after all avenues have been thoroughly explored. I trust her. You couldn’t ask for a better advocate."Susan B.

"Framework Legal has been fantastically flexible in supporting us as we've grown. As a small company, Juliet and her team were able to scale up and down the time they devoted to our work as we had sudden needs for work. They've also considered from day one what the long term impacts of new projects or documents would be on the company - something that I have rarely seen."Turner B.
"I had the pleasure of working with Juliet pre and post final sale of my business. Upon our first initial conversation we did a much deeper dive into due diligence and transaction details that I had experienced with other firms I had interviewed. Throughout the process we encountered, tough negotiations, poor communication from opposing counsel, uncomfortable questions and deal fatigue, Juliet was a step ahead through all these stepping stones of transaction. Ultimately, we ended up with the deal structure we had aimed for in the beginning, and I’m pleased to have worked with Juliet and I would recommend her to other business owners getting ready to take this step."Jamie R.

"Juliet was such an asset during the process of selling my 2 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 F.

"Framework has been our outside counsel for our franchise businesses for 7 years. They’ve assisted us with a multitude of business issues both large and small, and are always quick to respond. If they don’t have the specialized expertise for the issue at hand, they have a network of attorneys they work with who do. Juliet takes the time to really listen and understand the matter before forming her recommendations. And when providing direction, it’s a conversation, weighing out pros and cons to consider, rather than a one-way directive. I have always felt like Juliet was part of our executive team and been extremely satisfied with the guidance she has provided over the years."Traci S.
