A new law firm, Bergin, Frakes, Smalley & Oberholtzer (BFSO), recently opened its offices in the heart of Phoenix’s Camelback Corridor, with a focus on real estate, litigation and government relations services.

Although the law firm itself is new, BFSO’s partners are longtime Arizona lawyers and colleagues who have handled cases for a wide spectrum of development, business, financial and government clients in their respective careers.

“We decided to open our own firm to put our 50-plus years of experience in real estate and development, commercial transactions, and civil litigation to work for our clients,” said BFSO partner Carolyn Oberholtzer. “We are dedicated to providing trusted, reliable counsel to help our clients accomplish their goals and protect their interests.”

Focusing on civil and commercial litigation, both Brian Bergin and Kenneth Frakes are native Arizonans with long tenures as litigators and a wide range of experience spanning several decades. With a legal master’s degree in taxation, Michael Smalley concentrates on tax planning, corporate structure and governance, real estate and banking, as well as handling all transactional and finance matters for BFSO’s clients. Oberholtzer is a land use and municipal relations attorney who has been handling zoning, entitlement and municipal cases across Arizona for the last decade – from master-planned community and large-scale retail zoning cases, to annexations, special use permits and variances, and development agreements.
