Our Approach


Historic Pima County Courthouse

Butler, Oden & Jackson, P.C. is a law firm in Tucson, Arizona formed in 2009 by three experienced business and litigation lawyers with over 55 years of collective experience between them. We are and will remain a small firm, as each of us is committed to the efficiencies and advantages of experience and personal service. We work on our own cases, share our collective expertise, and do not delegate client files to junior attorneys. Our firm holds an AV Peer Rating, the highest level for ethics and legal competence. We believe the practice of law is a profession in which high ethical and professional standards best serve our clients, our firm, and our court system.

Our practice is concentrated on business representation and complex litigation matters, but we have the perspectives gained from a diverse client and experience base, and proudly represent both large corporations and small businesses and individuals. Our lawyers represent some of the most sophisticated technology and business enterprises in the state, and have been involved in most of the significant litigation cases in the community over the years, and also routinely provide pro bono representation to individuals who cannot afford legal services. We have benefited from long standing community ties and involvement in local legal and business associations, and believe this allows us to offer our clients not only legal knowledge, but the perspective and community relationships that are also important to effective solutions in most business legal matters.

Downtown Tucson

We strive to understand our clients’ business and legal objectives and find solutions that serve those objectives in a cost effective manner. We pride ourselves in seeking creative and pragmatic solutions that avoid the expense and distraction of protracted litigation, and believe that a victory achieved at unacceptable cost is no victory. We also have the trial and appellate experience to prevail at trial when other efforts at resolution have failed. Our lawyers routinely teach continuing legal education seminars on business and litigation related topics and serve on the faculty of the Arizona Trial College.
