Our Team of Paralegals
The team of attorneys and staff at the Deason Garner Law Firm offer unique backgrounds and over 40 years of legal experience.
“I have worked with Larry Deason for over 40 years as a Paralegal. I have seen many good changes, and now this firm is called Deason Garner Law firm. I supervise the estate planning paralegal and funding paralegal, and we all work closely with our attorneys to provide our clients with the best estate plan so that they can have peace of mind. I do a final review of the plan to make sure all is in order before we deliver the estate plan to our clients. The reason I have worked with this firm is that I enjoy who I work for, truly believe that we are helping families, and we treat our clients as part of our family.
In my spare time, I enjoy watching Mexican novelas, traveling, going to the gym, and zumba. I have two wonderful children and one awesome grandson. I am a native Yuman, and there is no place like home.”
