It’s time to discuss the nightmare I experienced in the late ’80s, early ’90s. We were drawn to Ahwatukee in 1983 by a billboard near Elliot Road and Interstate 10, featuring large cutouts of a tennis player and golfer and much ado about what was offered here. Perfect. Our retirement dreams come true. We bought a house that day on Cheyenne Drive. Two lovely golf courses with club houses, restaurants, pro shops — clothes, equipment, gifts, etc. AND 14 lighted tennis courts, a center court with patio seating, club house with showers, locker rooms, lavatories, pro shop with clothes, tennis equipment, etc., located at the corner of 48th Street and Warner Road.

I have been a business, real estate and employment litigation attorney in Arizona for over 27 years. Based on my extensive trial experience, I can tell you that it is almost always a poor idea to ignore a threat of litigation or demand for payment. I am not suggesting that you always need to consult with an attorney. In fact, if that matter in dispute is not important it will not set a precedent that may hurt you going forward or involves an insignificant amount of money, you may not need to consult with an attorney. Regardless of whether or not you speak with an attorney you should quickly thoroughly analyze the strengths and weaknesses of your position as well as the potential damages and counterclaims that may exist. My view is typically that you should always consider asserting a counterclaim since “the best defense is a good offense.”
Arizonans have a constitutional right to defend themselves against criminal charges, not just at trial but all the way up to the state Supreme Court, the justices ruled Friday.
