Attorney Profile

Neal has extensive experience in bankruptcy, commercial litigation and construction litigation involving all aspects of the prosecution and defense of complex, multi-party disputes. He works with many partners and shareholders resolving disputes in closely held businesses and has represented many Arizona companies, assisting them as they have grown. For construction clients, Neal handles both prosecution and defense of mechanic's liens issues, as well as assisting contractors with contract review and project issues such as change order issues and payment rights and remedies.  Neal's bankruptcy experience includes Chapter 11 bankruptcy reorganizations, creditor's rights representation and appeals. 

He has a pragmatic approach to solving client’s legal issues and frequently looks for the practical solution as full scale litigation may not be in the client’s best interests.  However, he is an accomplished trial litigator in both state, federal and bankruptcy courts.  Neal frequently publishes articles on anti-deficiency, bankruptcy and other business issues.
