Highly Recommend!
My husband and I decided to contact Jeff after reading all of his positive Google reviews. We were starting a freight hauling business and needed an LLC. Jeff answered all of our questions and took care of everything. We were surprised at how fast the process was. He even brought up some important tips that, had we tried to get the LLC ourselves, would have never thought of. We would highly recommend Jeff.

Highly Knowledgeable Commercial Real Estate Attorney
We thoroughly enjoyed working with Jeffrey Schoen. My family and I were involved in a complex commercial real estate transaction that transpired over many months. Jeff always responded quickly with thorough evaluations of our next steps and cogent legal advice. He followed through with our many questions and concerns and worked well with the seller’s attorney and our escrow agent, and we were very grateful that he was on our team! We highly recommend him for any real estate matters you may have!

Need to create an LLC? Jeff Schoen is the attorney for the job!
My husband and I recently worked with Jeff to create an LLC to manage construction and ownership of a new property in Mesa. Jeff provided excellent professional advice for the LLC set up, prompted us with the appropriate questions for our CPA, and led us through the creation and filing of the Articles of Organization. Jeff was prompt, efficient, reasonably priced, and extremely effective. My husband and his business partner have been working with Jeff for over 25 years, and now I clearly understand why.

Jeff Schoen offers fair and honest legal consultation
Jeff has helped our company with a partnership agreement, construction subcontract agreements and owner / contractor contract reviews. Jeff is good at explaining the legal requirements and ways it can impact our business both positively and negatively. He has helped set our business up for success. I would not hesitate to recommend Jeff to anyone I know, and we will be continued clients moving forward

Corporate and Title concerns
I am a Canadian lawyer and Jeffery assisted me and my client in correcting the corporate registration of an Arizona Corporation. My client had set up the corporation himself without legal advice and there were going to be problems selling a condo owned by the corporation. With Jeffery's help my client can now sell the condo as title can be verified. Thanks Jeffery!

Spectacular Real Estate Attorney
I am in the process of selling my commercial building and I am glad I found Jeff Schoen. He was responsive, reasonably priced, and most importantly, an absolute expert and professional. Jeff was able to help put my mind at ease by reviewing my contract and illuminating those parts of the process I was unsure/unaware of. I would highly recommend Jeff to anyone needing legal help revolving around a real estate transaction.

Franchise and Contract attorney
Utilized Jeff to assist with the review and revisions to franchise agreements and contracts. Jeff was extremely knowledgeable and willing to discuss and walk me through the specifics which allowed me to make more informed decisions. He was a huge help as we ventured down the path of opening our own small business.

Responsive and efficient
My wife and I needed Will and Trust documents drawn up in a short time frame, and were referred to Mr. Schoen by a colleague. Mr. Schoen walked us through the process and laid out everything clearly and concisely. Despite not being able to meet in person, we felt comfortable with the process and explanations. Mr. Schoen was responsive to our questions and completed everything we needed in a timely manner.

Positive Experiences
We are Canadian clients who have hired Mr. Schoen on two separate occasions to assist us with legal matters regarding ownership of property in Arizona. On both occasions Mr. Schoen was great to deal with. He was very fast responding to all correspondence and was extremely thorough in his assessments, legal recommendations, and followup. His charges were all very reasonable for the services rendered. We have given several of our Arizona friends his name and have no difficulty recommending his services to others.

Great Lawyer
I have just recently used Jeff on a recent business acquisition which hasn't gone as smoothly as planned due to unforeseen circumstances. Throughout this whole process Jeff has been great to deal with. Jeff is that rare lawyer who is easy to work with and explains complicated portions of a document in a straight forward manner. He is very consistent with his timelines and will be up front on meeting deadlines or not. He also is very knowledgeable in his specialties and best of all is not afraid to tell you his stand on certain issues whether he agrees with you or not. I'm happy to recommend him to someone else.

Thorough and Helpful
As a new client I was very pleased with Jeff's overall approach to our work. This isn't someone who just does work and sends you a bill. Jeff makes good use of his time and will work with you to analyze the situation and decide the best course of action. He has earned our return business.

Trust and Real Estate
I contacted and hired Mr. Schoen from out of state as I needed help with an Estate and Trust situation. Everything about my experience with Mr. Schoen was positive from the first contact throughout the ensuing months and numerous challenges, even when I didn't like the answer or outcome, he was concise and compassionate about the situation. This was a very difficult situation involving a Trust, multiple states and attorneys and uncooperative family members. With this degree of complexity Mr. Schoen was precise with his information and communications with all parties. If I have need of legal services again Mr. Schoen would certainly be my first call.

He understands and is willing to work through the many challenging and unorthodox situations we have thrown at him. We greatly appreciate the work he has done for us and use him whenever we need legal advice or face a legal situation.
