  • Listen Fully and Then Question Respectfully

    We live in a world of entrenched people and positions. Right now, you may be thinking of politics and similar high-level issues, but I am not. I’m considering this on a day-to-day level in relation to your work and personal lives in how you deal with people on any topic. For me it’s about my clients and whom I have to deal with on their behalf.

    I certainly deal with entrenched people and positions … Read More

  • 2021 Amendments to Arizona‚Äôs Homestead Statute Confused Yet?

    There has been a good amount of commentary regarding Arizona House Bill 2617, which amends the Arizona Homestead Statute, and related statutes, effective January 1, 2022.

  • Do the Right Thing, Always

    I recently heard someone on a podcast say part of why he thinks his children have grown up to be good young adults included ingraining in them the idea of “doing the right thing, even if it sucks.” Many times, doing the right thing is easy (and some people still choose doing the wrong thing).

    The cycle of beating yourself up does no good. It wastes time, which is a precious commodity. It also can be a vicious … Read More
