Preserving Your Legacy
Estate Planning | Wills | Trusts
Estate Planning in Scottsdale & Fountain Hills | Tempe | Phoenix Metro | California
Desmond Law provides clients with a broader perspective during their planning process. Together, we create a strategy for your future, and for the future of your family. A plan that protects you in case of accident or injury. A plan that designates trusted people to make decisions for you. A plan that preserves family harmony after you’re gone. Precious mementos, favorite photographs, treasured memories and the legacy you wish to pass on to your children are all key parts of proper estate planning.
I want to congratulate you for making it here and taking the first step toward planning for everyone and everything you love. I cherish the opportunity to help you secure what you love.
I look forward to learning your story, hearing what matters to you, and helping you discover what is actually needed to keep your loved ones out of court and out of conflict when something happens to you (or them).
In one sentence, we help families avoid collapse after the death or disability of a loved one.
To find out more about how you can start on this important planning, you are invited to one of our upcoming events (check out the schedule below).
Or schedule your FREE 15-minute consultation and speak with us personally about your family.

That is totally fine. It is normal to feel a little uneasy about estate planning.

This quick guide helps you learn how to make the smart and loving choice for your family
Many of our happiest clients started just where you are right now. But when they read the best selling book on estate planning for families, Wear Clean Underwear (I know, it's a funny name, right?), they felt more at ease, educated and informed about this important planning than they ever had before. And they love the peace of mind that comes with knowing everything is set up the right way for themselves, their future, and their loved ones.
I would love to send you a copy of Wear Clean Underwear: A Fast, Fun, Friendly – and Essential – Guide to Legal Planning for Busy Families for FREE as my gift to you for considering working with me.
Simply click here to request your free copy and it will immediately arrive in your inbox.
It's called "Wear Clean Underwear" because your mom always told you to wear clean underwear in case you were in an accident. But once you are a parent, there are important legal planning steps you need to take as well. By the way, the book gets 4.4 stars on Amazon.

I wanted to write and thank you for the wonderful service you provided to my wife and me in helping us create our estate plan. The whole subject of wills and death and succession can be a very difficult one. You made it easy. Your honest, open attitude and your savvy understanding of how both estate plans and families “work” was an enormous benefit in all the legal planning you did for us. Now I can rest assured knowing that my wife, my children and my grandchildren are protected by a solid, secure, well-considered estate plan. I would heartily recommend your firm to any family seeking to set up an estate plan, or someone who needs a Will or Trust document drafted. They would greatly benefit from with the guidance of an expert like you.
I’m new to AZ and needed some help to get assets properly registered to align with my estate plan. Marjorie is a delight to work with, and helped us through the process to get our new home titled and registered with the state. If you don’t have an estate plan, you should. If you’re like us and new to the state, a review with Marjorie is a simple move to make sure your new home and assets here are included and your estate questions are answered.
I refer my own clients to Marjorie for their estate planning. They have been exceedingly pleased with Marjorie’s work. Thank you, Marjorie.
My whole experience with Marjorie as my lawyer was very positive and professional and relieved me of a lot of stress with great results. Marjorie was incredibly diligent, detailed and persistent as she worked to get my case resolved. I was extremely pleased with the end result and would give Marjorie's name to anyone I knew who needed legal representation.
