Stephen Wardlow Follett

also known as Stephen W. Follett, Stephen Follett

About me

Stephen has a busy practice in trust, probate, guardianship, and conservatorship issues.


Stephen’s practice in probate court emphasizes representation of private fiduciaries and private individuals in both routine and hotly contested cases that other estate planning attorneys don’t handle.  His caseload often involves cases involving the unfortunate but all too common financial exploitation of vulnerable adults. 


His estate planning practice reflects the vital experience that can only come from the trenches of probate court.  Consequently, he knows that effective estate planning requires much more than completing forms.  He is able to listen to what his estate planning clients want and guide them through the practical decisions they need to make to avoid probate court.  He also informally helps his professional network with the issues they face with their elderly clients.


Stephen graduated cum laude from ASU School of Law.  While attending law school he clerked for three trial judges, and earned High ProBono distinction for work he completed in the victims’ rights advocacy clinic.  


He volunteers with the San Tan District and Troop 185 of the Boy Scouts of America. Among many awards, he received the Silver Beaver, the highest award given by the Grand Canyon Council for his many years of excellent service.
