Practice areas
  1. Trusts
    35%
    I prepare trusts, wills, and powers of attorney for a flat fee. An estate plan with a trust and a will usually costs about $1,200 to $2,200. I do not charge for a 30-minute consultation to review your estate plan and discuss any changes.

    15 years

    25%
    I help form limited liability companies and S-corporations. For an LLC without an operating agreement, my flat fee is $650, including fees and costs. The flat fee for an LLC with an operating agreement is $1,200.

    16 years

  3. Probate
    15%
    I help you open a probate case in Yavapai County Superior Court. I also help out-of-state executors and administrators open an ancillary probate in Yavapai County Superior Court to transfer title for property in Arizona to the estate's heirs.

    14 years

  4. Wills and living wills
    15%
    I prepare wills and powers of attorney for a flat fee. Most estate plans with a will cost about $750 to $950. I do not charge for a 30-minute consultation to review your estate plan or discuss what you need in a new estate plan.

    15 years

  5. Contracts and agreements
    10%
    I review and draft contracts purchase agreements, real property agreements, and promissory notes. For a $250 flat fee, I will review your contract and discuss it, for up to an hour. I can also represent you in litigation over a contract.

    17 years

I love preparing wills and trusts to solve the practical problems that come when a person passes away. My wills and trusts are, as much as possible, in plain language that can be read by you and your personal representative or successor trustee. Most initial consultations for wills and trusts are at no charge. I can then quote you a flat fee after taking a look at what you have and talking with you about what you want.

 I also handle contract matters, business law and probate matters. Our office is in Prescott, Arizona.

I grew up in southern Arizona near Nogales. I am a proud Sun Devil, a Wildcat, and most importantly, a husband to my sweetheart and a dad to our children. Until my kids leave for college, my family is my hobby. I love reading and hiking. I coached youth soccer teams for about eight years; I took a break in 2019..

The Very Best!
There's simply too many SUPERLATIVES that apply to Jonathan as an attorney and as a human being. Thus, I'll boil it down to this: HE'S THE BEST; HIRE HIM!

Excellent Attorney
My husband and I recently asked Jonathan to revise our trust and other estate planning documents. He proved to be knowledgeable, detail oriented, personable and intellectually curious. We presented him with some unusual issues, but he was able to address each one to our satisfaction. I couldn’t recommend him more highly.
Response from Jonathan Millet January 22, 2020
Thanks! I really enjoyed meeting you and researching the answers to those unusual questions.

Will, living will, power of attorney.
Mr. Jonathan A. Millet did a will, living will, and power of attorney for me. He was extremely thorough and really cared about what he was doing for me and the outcome of the product. He took the time to explain things that I did not understand, and gave me "tools" in the form of outlines and list to make my part a lot easier and organized. He was friendly, caring and his staff that assisted him had the same aforementioned characteristics. I would recommend his services without hesitation.

You are in the best of hands
Jonathan handled my trust in a completely satisfactory manner. He helped in so many ways. All questions and options were discussed and acted upon. He is a man concerned not only with the law but my personal and emotional well being. I believe such men as he are very rare.
Response from Jonathan Millet October 17, 2018
It was my pleasure. People like you balance out dealing with opposing counsel in disputed cases.

An excellent trust and estates attorney
Jonathan is an excellent attorney and a valued counselor to his clients. He is very detail oriented and provides tremendous value for those he represents. I give him my highest endorsement for any prospective client seeking to create or revise their trusts or estate plans.
Response from Jonathan Millet October 17, 2018
Thanks! I enjoy solving (or trying to prospectively solve) people problems along with the legal challenges.

Great Attorney, very knowledgeable
My wife and I have been working with Johnathan to prepare an estate plan/Trust/Wills. Johnathan's work is extremely thorough. The documents he provided us are just what we needed. When I had some questions about certain provisions (sometimes legal language can be a bit confusing to me), Johnathan was able to immediately explain those provisions in lay terms that made sense. In addition to the documents we requested, Johnathan provided us with useful information about how to 'fund' our Trust ourselves in order to save some money. However, he did let us know that he would be able to assist us if necessary. Johnathan is a very personable person. Easy to talk to and he makes you feel comfortable discussing legal matters. I would recommend you contact Johnathan for any of your Estate/Trust/Will needs.

Outstanding attorney
My wife and I recently consulted with Mr. Millet for estate planning - trust, wills, etc. In a word, he is outstanding. He spent the time necessary to fully explain and advise us on the nuances of estate planning. He carefully considered how planning for future events should be anticipated in the provisions of the estate plan. We never felt rushed. In addition, he is very personable and a pleasure conversationalist. I would highly recommend his services, and we will certainly call upon him again when the need arises.

My husband and I hired Jonathan to update our Will and Trust, as we moved to Prescott Valley from Oregon. This is a third marriage for both of us, so it made it quite complicated. Jonathan was easy to work with, and responsive to our needs through the process. I noticed right away that he had an easy-going, friendly manner, that most lawyers do not have. He made us feel like we were talking to an old friend, and showed an interest in our personal lives. I would recommend him to anyone who is looking for this type of attorney.

Response from Jonathan Millet March 15, 2018
Thanks! People and relationships often make estate planning more complicated, but I love finding a balance to try to make sure the people you love get along even after you pass. It's very sad when I hear how an estate or inheritance has changed a relationship.

Fast, responsive support
I was visiting a family member is Prescott who needed to create new Power of Attorney and Living Will documents. We had a very short window of time. Jonathon agreed to meet with us on short notice and create the documents we needed on the spot. Also, he used a patient and compassionate approach in dealing with our situation. Based on this experience, I would have no problem using Jonathan for estate planning matters.

Complicated trusts made simple
Mr Millet took our rather complicated situation with our out of state trusts and simplified them into individual trusts that fit our specific needs as a remarried couple, each with children and properties acquired in the past. He came up with a plan that took care of each child and disbursed each property in the specific path that we wanted. Throughout the consultations and drafts and re-drafts, Mr. Millet was patient and goal focused so that we got the end result we desired in a reasonable time frame and for a reasonable expense. We left highly satisfied.

Response from Jonathan Millet March 15, 2018
I have found that trusts don't have to be as complicated as I sometimes find them when someone brings one in for me to review. If needed, I am happy to write a short amendment to update your trust to reflect changes in Arizona law. I can also add in some provisions to deal with "people" problems to try to reduce conflict (and unnecessary attorneys' fees) after your passing.

Painless Will and Trust
Mr. Millet was very professional and easy to communicate with concerning our will and trust. We could read and understand the legal documents completely. It is a pleasure to recommend him to anyone needing legal advice or work.
Response from Jonathan Millet March 15, 2018
Thanks! I try to write the legalese as plain as I can and still accomplish the documents' purpose.
Posted by Rod | December 16, 2014
Exceptional
Mr Millet was very helpful and knowledgeable. I have counseled with him on two different legal issues and found his advice very sound and relative to the difficult circumstances faced. I recommend Mr Millet without reservation.
Response from Jonathan Millet March 15, 2018
Thanks! You had thought a lot about the legal issues and had a good approach on how to address them.

Arizona probate lawyer needed
I am an out of state client that needed probate information for a timeshare located in Arizona. Mr Millet was very helpful. He responded quickly to my email and gave me sound legal advise. I recommend him and will use him to settle my mother's property in Arizona.
Response from Jonathan Millet March 15, 2018
Glad to help. Most property in Arizona that would otherwise require a probate can be transferred by an alternate to probate (and we can quote a flat fee for the work).

Very Professional and Competant
As the trustee of a deceased relative's Trust, I had some questions regarding a real estate matter. Jonathan was recommended to me by one of the other attorneys in his firm, and before I had a chance to contact him, Jonathan called me directly. Within a few minutes, he had satisfactorily answered all my questions as well as allaying my concerns and giving me advice on how to proceed. He was very cordial and professional, and assured me that he would be available to assist me further should the need arise. I would definitely recommend his services. Having used the services of one of the other attorneys in his firm as well , I have been very pleased with Boyle, Pecharich, et al.

An incredibly fantastic experience with Jonathan Millet
I had a real estate-related issue and Mr. Millet was quick to return my call, provided expert advice and delivered it in a caring, thoughtful and knowledgeable manner. Very professional. I would give him a 10 star rating if it was available!
Response from Jonathan Millet March 15, 2018
Thanks. I wish more real estate issues had straightforward answers. But I guess that's what you get with an area of law that is, at its roots, based on English law that is several hundred years old. We try to make it more straightforward, as much as we can.
Posted by Janie | November 9, 2012
Quick and helpful response
Mr. Millet spent a great deal of time with me during a phone consultation. He did so knowing that he could not represent me as my particular case would have to be handled in another state. He answered every question I had and advised to as to what I needed to do, step by step. He gave me the peace of mind I was looking for. Not only is he a true professional, he is a compassionate one.

Upfront and Honest!
I called Jonathan because of a criminal speeding ticket that I had and didn't know what to do about it. He called me back within 24 hours and gave me 10 mins. of his time giving me several different options that I really felt comfortable with. I didn't need to hire him but I am so thankful for his advise and time. I would highly recommend him to anyone!

Probate help
He was very friendly and spoke in common English. Explained all of my options, asked the right questions, and listened to me. I was impressed with his knowledge on the subject of Trust Probate and the options he concluded from his knowledge and my personal situation.
Response from Jonathan Millet March 15, 2018
Thanks! Glad to hear that I can still speak like a normal person. My wife has to remind me sometimes that I'm not making sense.
