About Wendy

Learn Wendy’s areas of practice.

I am a member of the State Bar of Arizona. Prior to earning my JD, I was a business executive for 24 years at several publicly-traded companies.  My law practice approaches all challenges from both a legal and business perspective because I understand the pressures and considerations faced by my clients. I strive to be a business partner as well as a legal advisor as my clients deal with contract, employment, advertising and business issues of all types.  As outside counsel, I am available with a single phone call to address a concern or discuss an idea. Additionally, I am a trained mediator, earning my certificate in 2016, and I work with businesses and individuals to resolve their disputes as amicably as possible.

Easy to work with and great service
We hire Wendy Anderson to advise us and write the Terms and Conditions for our proposals. She understood straight away what we needed for our type of business and deliver terms that would not only cover us but our clients in the right way. We will definitely use Wendy again when we need additional business law services!

Highly Recommend - Smart, Personable & Professional
I met with Wendy a few weeks ago to simply ask her some questions about asset protection, LLC's, and how to structure them considering my unique situation. Wendy took the time to ask me questions about my business and then help me figure out the best solution. Wendy is very sharp when it comes to law and very professional. I'll be following up with her to have her set up some LLC's to make sure it's done correctly the first time. Thanks again Wendy for being very personable, professional, and helpful!

Review of Documents
I hired Wendy to review a contract and advise me on it's specifics. She was thorough, upfront and direct with her assessment; which was exactly what I needed. She is very knowledgeable and I trust her completely.

Wendy did a fantastic job handling my moms estate planning. She met with my mother to review her current will. Finding some issues, she did a new will that was much more effective and protective of her estate. She also devised several other documents to further protect her estate. After my mom passed away, she was there to help execute the documents, answer all of my questions, and has even sent articles on potential scams. Wendy made a very difficult time much easier. I can't say enough good things about her.

Wendy Anderson has prepared contracts for the firm. We have retained her services more than once and would highly recommend her! Her attention to detail is what sets her apart from the rest.

Great contract attorney
Wendy worked with us on our consulting contracts, plus reviewed a few contracts that I had come in where I needed professional counsel. I found her to be timely, thorough, and totally on top of things. She made several good suggestions and the other party changed their contract accordingly. Her client service exceeded my expectations. I'll be calling her as our business grows and we need additional services. I highly recommend her.

Wendy Anderson just reviewed a set of financial contracts for me and was prompt and thorough. In particular, I asked her to check the legal boiler plate that the financial company inserted at the ends of 3 of the contracts. She identified several items that could have been problems for me if a dispute ever arises, and also found places where ambiguity in the wording could have led to conflicts. A well-done job.

Highly recommended
I would highly recommend Wendy Metcalf Anderson. I recently lost a loved one and without Wendy guidance and knowledge I don't know how I would of made it through this difficult and stressful situation . Wendy was always prompt with all my questions, concerns and confusion during this difficult time. She responded to all my phone calls, text messages and emails in a very prompt manner. She was also very accommodating with meeting me in person at location nearest to me. Wendy made a very difficult situation less stressful and managable. I was left unconcerned and relieved with Wendy in my corner.

| Consulted Attorney
To state that I am impressed with Wendy is an understatement. Though newly admitted as a member of the Arizona State Bar, she brings to our profession a wealth of business experience, focused in the area of business marketing and advertising, though certainly not limited to that area of the law. She is astute, confident and a polished communicator, demonstrating sophistication and diligence as she analyzes a legal issue. Being, myself, a lawyer of 34+ years experience, licensed in both Arizona and California, I am happy to know Wendy and would not hesitate to associate with her on business law projects.

Employment and Severance Counsel
I was shocked and dismayed to learn (while boarding my plane for my vacation) that my employer of 6 years had included me along with about 600 of my co-workers in a Reduction in Force, effective immediately. As a 55 year old woman who had recently been moved into an elite group within the organization, I had questions! I have known Wendy for only about 2 years, but she was a colleague friend of my significant other for many years so he recommended that I contact Wendy for some guidance and counsel. She responded to my message immediately on a Sunday afternoon and we set up a time to talk when I returned home. I received excellent guidance, advice and a plan for next steps after she interviewed me about the facts. Her knowledge and plan to negotiate made me feel confident at a time when my emotions were raw and my confidence was lacking. I would highly recommend Wendy Metcalf Anderson if you are seeking a trustworthy, knowledgeable and professional Attorney who will work hard to get you the best outcome for your situation.
