Contracts

A contract is an agreement between two or more parties. Contracts can be oral or written. Oral contracts are enforceable for shorter time frames than written contracts. Contracts for debts have their own rules too, often regulated by the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.

Business contracts include, but are not limited to, sale of goods, non-compete, leases, purchases, non-disclosure, plaintiff-consumer disputes, and employment.   Without guidance, your business risks a breach of contract. These can be costly in court fees, legal fees, and damages.

Tribal/Indian Law

Indian law can involve anything from general tort to contract, employment, or criminal law.

The practice of Indian law can be very complicated, so it is a good idea to retain knowledgeable legal counsel.

You need to know both before making decisions. We also know that not all things go according to planned. Lewis Labadie can research your issues and concerns. Whether it is a simple contract or a multimillion dollar deal, we have your business interests covered.

Business Organization

Starting or expanding your business? Lewis Labadie can address your needs. If you are starting out, we can help you select a name and form your entity. Entities include corporation, nonprofit (501c3), PLLC, or LLC. Depending on the structure of your business, you might be one of these entities and a partnership. Partnerships are normally treated the same as other entities, but often require additional accounting.  Our law firm will assist with drafting, revising, or terminating Operating Agreements, Partnership Agreement, or Incorporation Agreements.

Civil Litigation

Civil litigation is a vast area of practice. In Arizona, cases are handled in small claims, justice court, and superior court. The amount in dispute controls the location of the litigation. We prefer to seek resolution when possible. As a result, we will discuss collections, demand letters, and enforcement options prior to litigation. When no resolution is possible, our firm assists with all aspects from filing to settlements to full out trial defense.

    No, our firm works throughout the State of Arizona, Arizona Court of Appeals, and in most Federal jurisdictions, including tribal law.

  • Does your firm operate a Statutory Agent?

    Yes. To explain, a Statutory Agent is a person or business designated to accept service of process at the start of litigation. Having a S.A. will reduce the business owner’s obligations to accept service and prevents the suing party from seeking alternative service if the business owner is not easy to reach.
