Lassiter created Lassiter Law Firm PLC in Arizona to assist business clients in matters related to alternative dispute resolution, business litigation, real estate and construction litigation.

Mr. Lassiter's role as an arbitrator for the American Arbitration Association has a great deal to do with the strong reputation he has developed over the years. While serving in this role, he tackled a wide range of commercial disputes and continues to serve as an AAA mediator.
