Welcome to Brentwood Law Group

We are a full-service law firm with over 50 years collective experience in general business litigation, bankruptcy, real estate litigation, judgment enforcement, business transactions, medical facility development and operations, and appeals. Our attorneys trained at some of the best law schools in the country and honed their business and advocacy techniques at top firms before joining Brentwood. We practice client-centered lawyering; we put you first and ensure that our legal advice and litigation advocacy suit your broader personal and business goals. We can lower your legal costs because we are lean, efficient, and bill less than larger firms who cost more but do not guarantee better results.

Areas of Practice

Business

We handle a broad range of transactional matters, including contract negotiation, contract enforcement, partnership agreements, asset-purchase agreements, real estate contracts, and business contracts.

Real Estate

We secure favorable results in real estate litigation matters, including wrongful lien, breach of purchase agreements, adverse possession, and commercial eviction actions. We also successfully litigate construction disputes, including disputes about construction defects, construction delays, design defects, non-payment, and mechanics liens.

Medical Facilities

We help physicians build and operate medical centers. We strategize, acquire permits, document transactions, create governing boards, audit policies and procedures, structure acquisitions, enforce reimbursement contracts, respond to claims for recoupment, and prosecute and defend insurance-related litigation. These services are all geared to help physicians go from concept to reality on multi-million dollar facilities.

Bankruptcy

The attorneys with Brentwood Law Group have practiced in Arizona bankruptcy courts for over 30 years. We also represent major creditors in Chapter 11 cases. We can materially increase your return from a Chapter 11 case by doing more than most firms do for their clients. These actions include informed negotiations with the debtor for preferred treatment in the bankruptcy plan and a possible sale of your claim to a third party.
If you are a smaller creditor whose debt has been affected by a Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing, we can assist you by filing a bankruptcy claim. If your claim is secured by collateral, we can obtain a termination of the automatic stay so you foreclose on or seize your collateral.


Creditor Rights / Commercial Collections

          We represent all creditors, including financial institutions, healthcare companies, and note/judgment holders seeking pre- and post-judgment remedies such as judgment, receivership, replevin, attachment, pre- and post-judgment garnishment, and post-judgment execution. We have successfully prosecuted actions for receivership, fraudulent transfers, trust fund doctrine, sham trusts, alter ego and piercing the corporate veil, and successor liability. We consult with clients at all stages of the collection process.

Our Philosophy

We help you work through complex legal proceedings while never forgetting that you are in command. We emphasize consistent, genuine client communication so our advice gets your results that best serve your personal and business goals.

Many other firms—especially large firms—seek fees that preclude businesses and individuals from obtaining necessary legal services. And many firms—large and small alike—treat clients presumptuously and impersonally, which leads to their clients enduring an overly expensive and stressful experience.
 
Brentwood is different—it offers the personal touch so many firms and lawyers fail to provide. Our lawyers have graduated from nationally-ranked law schools and worked in prestigious national and regional firms, so we offer top notch legal services. But we do not rest on our credentials. We instead strive every day to provide personal, efficient, proactive, and creative solutions for all our clients, from the aspiring sole proprietor entering the entrepreneurial world to established businesses seeking affordable, reliable, and effective counsel. Contact us today for help. 


Why Choose Brentwood

Arguing cases and negotiating resolutions are the life of any lawyer. Only some have embraced the qualities necessary to excel.

Great Attorneys

Our attorneys trained at top law schools and law firms before enhancing their practice at Brentwood. We know how to draft agreements that keep you out of court and aggressively litigate disputes when you are forced to go to court.

Cutting Edge Technology

We use cutting edge technology to help you get better, more-efficient results. We provide real-time document sharing with clients. And we will adapt our practice to conform to your litigation-management and billing software. We employ document automation through HotDocs on routine matters and use elite legal updates and research software through Westlaw in complex matters.

Business Mindset

Litigation and legal work can be costly, but we charge lower rates than other elite firms and employ strategies to increase efficiency. We will work with you early to develop a budget and help you evaluate your business goals and legal needs. We draw from a wide range of transactional resources to avoid reinventing time-tested solutions. We obtain injunctions, receivers, and pre-judgment remedies as appropriate to minimize litigation time.
