About Adam

Learn Adam’s areas of practice.

Practice areas
  1. Estate planning
    I help clients design and create a comprehensive estate plan that consists of key components to make it work as designed in the event of incapacity or death. My plans are designed to account for tax considerations, creditor protection, and other very important issues that could destroy relationships after an individual becomes incapacitated or dies. My plans are unique and will help my clients be remembered as "good stewards" for generations to come.

    8 years

  2. Limited liability company (LLC)
    I help clients create LLCs under state law to accomplish the clients' objectives. This could be for many things like to provide asset protection for business ventures, tax purposes, estate planning purposes, etc.

    8 years

  3. Power of attorney
    I help clients design a Power of Attorney that gives power to named individuals to be able to act for the client in the event of incapacity.

    8 years

  4. Probate
    I help families and loved ones begin the probate process after the death of the Decedent. Once the Probate Court has opened the new case, I help the Administrator of the Decedent's estate through the process of paying creditors, identifying heirs, and compiling an inventory of property the Decedent left behind. Finally, I help the Administrator distribute the Decedent's estate according to the Decedent's wishes.

    8 years

  5. Wills and living wills
    I prepare Wills to help my clients accomplish their objectives after death. In a typical case, that usually means using a Pour Over Will to "pour" assets into a Living Trust at death or in some cases creating a Testamentary Trust at death. I also prepare Living Wills for my clients that allow them to make a decision, ahead of time, as to whether they want to be removed from machines that are keeping them alive if in a terminal condition, vegetative state, or persistent coma.

I joined Deason Garner to help people preserve their estate, protect their cherished treasures, and pass along the things that they value the most. 

I thrive on establishing relationships with people. Helping individuals prepare their personal affairs for disability and death, gives me the opportunity to establish lifelong relationships with and serve a great variety of people from all walks of life. My reward is developing these trusted lifelong relationships in the process. These relationships are multi-generational. Being bilingual in Spanish gives me a unique advantage to serve a broader population.

Most clients find me by way of word of mouth from previous clients. Others find me through their tax, financial, insurance or real estate advisors. Regardless of how clients find me, I work closely with my clients’ advisors to ensure that all of the pieces of their life’s puzzle are in place.

I graduated with a major in Spanish from Arizona State University in 2007. I received my Juris Doctor degree from Arizona Summit Law School in December of 2013. I am admitted to practice before all the courts in the state of Arizona. I am a member in good standing with the Arizona Bar.

I enjoy speaking and my firm conducts private and public educational seminars every month. It is important to me to help others become educated regarding what happens, legally, at their death. I can help put proper individualized planning in place to reduce or eliminate heartache after an individual's death.

Contribution and volunteering are important to me.  I serve in my local church and have served faithfully for many years.  My amazing wife and I have been married since 2006 and I am the proud father of four beautiful children.

Excellent Customer Experience
My wife and are extremely appreciative of the staff and services provided by Deason Garner & Hansen. With their assistance we were able to complete estate planning so that when the time comes we can be assured that our wishes will be carried out with minimal fuss and stress to our loved ones or each other. We are especially appreciative of Jordana Canela for assisting us through each portion of the process. Thank you for the peace of mind you have given us!

Excellent Experience!
Adam went out of his way to make sure that I had all the documents I needed (or even might need!) to open a trust account for my brother who I am guardian for. I had several problems at a couple of banks I had tried and Adam prepared documents and a portfolio that allowed me to easily open an account and put all that in order for my brother. I was very impressed with his initiative, the portfolio he prepared for me, and the time he took to explain what everything meant and what it was used for.
