Billie Tarascio

Modern Law Founder


When I was 19 my parents went through a divorce. I hadn’t seen it coming, especially as the drama of the divorce and the resulting custody battle unfolded. My brothers and I were heartbroken. Our worlds were completely rocked.

At the time, I was all too aware of the role my parents’ attorneys played during this life changing transition for all of us. Their divorce changed the course of my life. That’s when I knew that I wanted to be a family law attorney.

What we do as family law attorneys affects people’s lives, and the lives of their children for decades and I absolutely love it.


My journey to becoming the owner and founder of Modern Law and I Do Over came out of an intense sense of justice and a desire to stand up for people who cannot stand up for themselves. It started on the playground as a kid.

Whenever I would see someone being bullied, I would step in. I didn’t even think twice about it. I cannot stand by and watch injustice. I decided around the age of 10 that I wanted to be an attorney.

Billie graduated the University of Oregon School of Law in 2005. She worked at the Department of Justice, Family Law Division, the non-profit A Family for Every Child and clerked at the Lane County Juvenile Court under Justice Kip Leonard. She practices exclusively in divorce and family law in Arizona. Billie is a skilled practitioner, national speaker, law firm business consultant and an honored attorney. She is also the author of Decode Your Divorce and a co author of Tiger Tactics, Powerful Strategies for Winning Attorneys.


After I graduated from Law School from the University of Oregon in 2005, I started seeing what many lawyers see. Most of the people who needed our help couldn’t afford attorneys and lawyers needed more work. In 2008, I went out on my own in search of a better way of doing things for attorneys and clients alike. My primary goal was to lower the cost of legal services for clients, and reduce accounts receivables for the firm.


I began experimenting with the traditional legal model, offering limited scope, pay-as-you-go services, flat fee options and traditional choices. I also began investing in technology to increase access to justice. Our sister company I Do Over, emerged and is completely devoted to helping self-representing clients.

Like many owner/entrepreneurs, Modern Law isn’t just where I work; it’s part of who I am. As a team, each and every single member of Modern Law is devoted to our mission of serving our clients and the community with complete wrap-around services. We understand that divorce isn’t just a legal event but a complete and total life transition and we strive to be a concierge that can address any and all of the issues you may face.
