  • Attorney Fee Shuffle- The Arizona Supreme Court has Imported the Fee Shifting Provision of A.R.S. § 12-341.01(A) Into Private, Mandatory Contractual Fee Provisions

    Unlike many states, Arizona has long provided for the recovery of attorney fees, albeit on a discretionary basis, in contested contract disputes. See A.R.S. § 12-341.01(A). The Arizona legislature made clear, however, that the discretionary fee statute was not intended to displace contractual fee provisions of the sort commonly found in consumer and commercial contracts. Thus, § 12-341.01 … Read More

    What? Really. What I mean is that as you gain experience you realize how much you don't know and become (hopefully) more comfortable admitting it. We all experience conversations where the other person tells you they know about something or someone, but is or becomes clear they don't.

The person you view as a "higher up" may hate the position they are in. The person who seems to have money may be living on debt. Not making assumptions is a topic for another day. 

    Similarly, don't be vindictive. Don't try to get even. If you really analyze a situation where … Read More
