My name is Joseph A. Velez. For 20 years, I have represented and advised Arizona businesses and individuals on a variety of legal issues in employment law, real estate law, and business law. At the same time, I am keenly sensitive to the costs associated with quality legal representation.
I hope that the information on this website will give you an idea of key issues that may affect your business or employment situation. If you find that you would like more information on topics like severance, collecting unemployment, obtaining security, or other employment-related issue, please contact me so that we can discuss your questions. I look forward to serving you.
The relationship between attorney and client is one of the most respected bonds; an alliance based upon shared principles, common objectives and mutual respect. I place the highest value on forming strong, dedicated, and long lasting relationships with every client. I build relationships with those I serve on a foundation of quality and integrity.
Devising creative strategies with steady and capable advise is one of my main goals. And although it is rare that solutions to problems are apparent right off the bat, one of my primary roles as a lawyer is to help clients in sorting out the various considerations, assigning priorities and measuring risks against gains to achieve the clients goals.
Whether you find yourself in a discrimination, wage, or contract dispute; are contemplating accepting a severance agreement, have been served an EEOC claim or have a denied unemployment claim, I can help.
