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.”
Trust Administration & Probate Paralegal
"I have the privilege of assisting clients during the emotional and complex process of administering their loved one’s estates after they have passed. I also assist clients with the details of business planning and advanced planning. It is very rewarding to know that I am able to provide support to our clients while helping them get their lives in order. I have been in the legal field since 2006 and have had the pleasure to be a part of the Deason Garner Law Firm since January 2010.
When not at work, I enjoy spending all of my time with my family. I enjoy the outdoors and spend much of my time watching my children play sports, gardening, camping, and running. I also enjoy reading, taking on home improvement projects and going to the movies."
Medicaid/ALTCS Paralegal & Funding Paralegal
I am a Medicaid Paralegal and Funding Paralegal. As a Medicaid Paralegal, I have the privilege working with clients, client’s spouses and other family members who are in need of Arizona Long Term Care (ALTCS).

When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my family, attending sporting events, and enjoying the outdoors.”

“After researching estate planning, my husband and I contacted Deason Garner & Hansen Law Firm and were pleasantly surprised at the relative ease of setting up a Living Trust. All of the personnel we met at the firm, including but not limited to, Adam and Ashley, went above and beyond their assigned duties to make this happen for us. We feel confident in their expertise in this area and feel that we have made two new friends in Yuma! Thank you!” K. Knight
