Beebe Law PLLC
Beebe Law, PLLC is primarily operated as a solo practice by Anette Beebe. Although the term "we" or "us" is commonly used to refer to our firm, encompassing both the business entity and Ms. Beebe, it may also include contract assistants or additional attorneys that are engaged on a case-by-case basis as required to effectively handle matters.
While our firm is led by Anette Beebe, who brings extensive legal expertise and experience, we have the ability to collaborate with trusted professionals when necessary to provide comprehensive legal solutions tailored to our clients' needs.
Rest assured that regardless of the size of our team, Beebe Law, PLLC is committed to delivering personalized and high-quality legal services to assist you with your legal matters.

1. Business Law: We provide comprehensive legal support to businesses, offering guidance on various matters related to general business operations, contracts, and regulatory compliance.
2. Intellectual Property: Our firm handles select Intellectual Property issues, assisting clients with protecting their trademarks and copyrights, as well as advising on licensing and infringement matters.

4. Litigation: We offer strategic representation in litigation matters, focusing on select cases that align with our areas of expertise. Our services include assisting counsel outside of Arizona with domesticating foreign state subpoenas and navigating federal court procedures for foreign country discovery requests.
Additionally, we can provide consultation to counsel outside of Arizona who seek our specialized knowledge in specific areas such as the laws surrounding Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act (47 U.S.C. § 230) and the anti-sex trafficking law known as SESTA/FOSTA (FOSTA being the appropriately used acronym).
At Beebe Law, PLLC, we are dedicated to delivering tailored legal solutions that meet our clients' needs in these diverse practice areas.
At our law firm, we understand that many individuals seek free legal advice or have a few quick legal questions they'd like answered over the phone. While we genuinely wish we could provide this service, it would hinder our ability to focus on our existing clients' cases effectively.
Instead, we offer an Initial Consultation that involves a fairly competitive fee for the expertise provided. This fee covers the time we invest in evaluating your matter, formulating a strategy to address your situation, and addressing any questions you may have. We believe that this initial meeting is crucial for getting you on the right track and empowering you to play an active role in managing your legal matter, should you choose to do so. This approach helps minimize costs and ensures you have the knowledge and tools to navigate your case effectively.
To learn more about our Initial Consultation process and the legal strategy we develop specifically for you, we invite you to visit our dedicated Initial Consultation/Legal Strategy page.
Please note that by investing in an Initial Consultation, you're making a proactive step towards resolving your legal concerns with the guidance and expertise of our experienced team.

Let's be honest, not all attorneys and law firms fit the same mold, and we understand that each person has their own expectations when it comes to their legal representation.

BEEBE LAW, PLLC MAY NOT ALIGN WITH THE EXPECTATIONS OF CLIENTS WHO ARE SEEKING:
At Beebe Law, PLLC, we prioritize authenticity, integrity, and a client-centered approach. We believe in providing practical and honest legal guidance tailored to your unique needs. Our focus is on building a strong attorney-client relationship based on trust, transparency, and effective communication. We strive to offer reliable advice, even if it means delivering difficult truths or exploring alternative solutions to meet your objectives.

BEEBE LAW, PLLC COULD BE AN EXCELLENT FIT FOR CLIENTS WHO DESIRE OR WELCOME:
At Beebe Law, PLLC, our billing structure generally operates on an hourly basis, calculated in traditional increments of one-tenth (6 minutes). The hourly rate varies depending on several factors such as the assigned professional (Ms. Beebe, a contracted attorney, or a paraprofessional assistant), the complexity of the matter, the project type, and any urgency involved. As a result, hourly rates for paraprofessional staff and attorneys typically fall within the range of $150 to $525, depending on these specific circumstances.
For businesses seeking our Outside In-House Counsel services, we offer a customized monthly fee that aligns with the unique requirements of each business client. This allows for budgeting and ensures a tailored approach to meet your specific needs.
No, Beebe Law, PLLC does not maintain a traditional physical office. We operate virtually, utilizing telephonic and video conference meetings as the primary means of communication. This allows for efficient and convenient collaboration with our clients. While our standard practice is to conduct meetings remotely, we understand that certain situations may require in-person consultations. In such cases, if necessary, we can arrange to meet clients at a physical location, such as their business office. Please note that appointments of this nature may incur additional costs due to travel time and mileage. However, it's important to emphasize that such meetings are exceptions rather than the norm.
We do consider flat fees for certain specific items and services. For instance, we offer flat fee pricing for our Business Website Risk Audit and our "Outside In-House Counsel" program. However, it's important to note that the majority of the work we do is not "form driven" or generic. We understand that each business is unique, and our clients require tailored solutions that address their specific needs. As a result, a "one-size-fits-all" flat fee approach is not typically applicable to the services we provide, unless specifically stated on our website for special offers, pre-consultation file reviews and analysis, or through our "Outside In-House Counsel" services.
Certainly! We offer "à la carte" services, which are ideal for clients who prefer a more hands-on approach but may require occasional assistance or guidance. In Arizona, attorneys are now able to provide what is commonly known as "limited scope representation." This type of representation allows clients to break down their legal matter or project into specific tasks or pieces, for which they can hire and pay the attorney accordingly.
Limited scope representation offers numerous benefits, including cost-effectiveness. The State of Arizona has provided comprehensive information outlining the pros, cons, and frequently asked questions regarding this type of representation. We strongly encourage anyone considering hiring Beebe Law, PLLC or any other law firm under limited scope representation to review this information.
These "à la carte" legal services may also be referred to as:

SETTING A CONSULTATION

We aim to make the intake and onboarding process as streamlined and convenient as possible. If you have any further questions or require clarification, please don't hesitate to reach out to us.
We understand that budgeting for legal projects is important, and we strive to provide transparency regarding potential costs. However, estimating the exact cost of a project can be challenging due to various factors that influence pricing. While we may be able to offer a rough estimate, it's important to note that even these estimates can be imprecise. Please keep in mind that unless the project falls under a limited scope flat fee arrangement, providing an exact number is not possible.
To help you gain a better understanding of anticipated fees for a specific type of project, we can provide a sample range of costs. However, it's recommended that you also read the article titled "Legal fees: 7 ways that YOU may be contributing to a higher legal bill" to better comprehend the factors that can impact costs.
Please note that these sample ranges do not encompass the full scope of services provided by Beebe Law, PLLC, and they do not account for unexpected circumstances that may arise. The following are approximate ranges for "routine matters" in terms of attorney fees:
INTERNET/SOCIAL MEDIA/DEFAMATION SPECIFIC MATTERS
The above list is only referenced by way of example of common ranges for some of the types of work that Beebe Law, PLLC can assist with. If you have any questions relating to whether or not we can assist you with a particular matter, please Contact Us!
No, Beebe Law, PLLC does not typically handle cases on a contingency fee basis. The nature of our work is such that contingency fees are not commonly applicable. Contingency fees are more commonly associated with personal injury, mass tort, or other class action practices.
Yes, Beebe Law, PLLC requires an advanced deposit/retainer for all first-time clients. For ongoing matters, including existing clients, we may request replenishment of retainers ("evergreen retainers"). The retainer will be deposited into the firm's Trust Account and applied as fees are earned in accordance with our retention agreement, also known as the fee agreement. At the end of a project, any unearned fees will be refunded.
For clients who become general business clients with regular routine work and establishes a long history of prompt payment, maintaining funds on retainer may not be required.
For businesses engaging Beebe Law, PLLC for "Outside In-House Counsel" services, a monthly bill is issued to pre-pay for the pre-negotiated services for the following month. These fees are considered "earned upon receipt" and are not placed in the Trust Account.
An "evergreen retainer" operates similarly to a traditional retainer agreement but offers some key advantages for both our clients and our firm. Under a traditional retainer, a client is required to provide a large upfront sum to retain the firm for legal services. These funds are held in the firm's Trust Account and used to finance the legal project as needed, with any remaining balance returned at the end of the matter.
In contrast, an evergreen retainer offers the following benefits:
Overall, the evergreen retainer offers greater financial flexibility, predictability, and ensures a smoother workflow for both our clients and our firm.
Example of how the evergreen retainer works. Sally Doe has a legal issue. Rather than requiring Sally to provide an initial lump sum of $25,000 to retain the firm, Sally instead enters into an evergreen retainer agreement with the firm whereby Sally agrees to pay $5,000 down as an initial retainer, always maintain $3,500 in the Trust account (the "evergreen threshold"), and to replenish the account equal to whatever is billed the prior month. In this instance, payment procedures would look like the following:
The above scenario is a general example only. The specifics of any retention agreement, including a clause relating to the evergreen retainer, will be outlined in detail in your retention agreement.
Yes! Beebe Law, PLLC accepts payments for not only for regular invoice payments, but also retainers/advance deposits, by credit card through a secure payment portal. Credit Cards accepted by Beebe Law, PLLC include Visa, Mastercard, and Discover. Sorry, we no longer accept American Express.
