Helping Entrepreneurs Reach Their Dreams and Goals™



Thank you for helping me protect my business Joan! As a new business I needed to create a unique licensee agreement to help grow our concept, and I had no idea how to achieve that. Through your firm I received a customized contract to use and we have been using it for 3 years! Thank you for your services!

Joan is one of the most caring attorneys that I have ever met and a true professional. She has a genuine spirit when helping others and at the same time having the urgency that is needed to complete a task. Joan has always made me feel at ease about a situation with a kind word, her knowledge in the law, and the extra mile she takes. She is the Best of the Best!

How I came to know Joan started so simply as any Attorney - Client relationship. She helped get my first business venture turned into a LLC, listened to the direction I wanted to take it, gave some constructive input, and off I went.

Seven years later, I realize, with pride, what a prize she is! Beyond expert legal advice, and helping me through a difficult partnership, she is a caring person, supportive of the direction I wish to follow, and gives subtle and sometimes very strong and direct input that has made large impacts on the success of numerous projects. She has given guidance in a comfortable, meaningful way - sharing her knowledge, all with the intent of making me more successful in my business as well as my personal life.

Of all the paths in life, I’m very privileged to walk with Joan Jakel.

Thanks for being you.

Joan was an amazing inspiration to me when I decided to open my own consulting firm. Her experience and wisdom gave me the confidence to leave corporate America and forge my own path as an entrepreneur. The enthusiasm and passion she brings to her craft are contagious. If you are ready to begin the journey of a lifetime or simply need advice along the way, Joan is there every step of the way.

Joan Jakel-Smith is amazing! For more than five years she has volunteered her time to help grow the Tempe Chamber, chairing committees and the board of directors. She brings a wealth of knowledge, clarity of thought and a passion for the community to everything she works on, and her guidance and advice have had immeasurable impact. Is it any wonder she's been named the Tempe Chamber Business Woman of the Year?
