About Neal Law Firm
The legal profession has undergone major changes in the last ten years or so. And looking ahead, there are more to come. Many of these changes have been to the advantage of you, the client.

Each of these factors is forcing law firms to become much more efficient by limiting overhead while increasing output. Some firms have reacted better than others.
We at Neal Law AZ strive constantly to provide competitively priced, yet top-tier work product for our clients.

What Our Clients Are Saying
I’ve worked with Neal Law Firm on several projects. Abby has been a big help with putting together tight, professional business contracts. She’s made sure that my contracts are logical and cover all the possible bases. I highly recommend Neal Law Firm to anyone looking for an extra set of eyes on their legal documents (and rock-solid contracts).
Abby, Thank you for making our estate planning process so easy. If we had known we could work with a lawyer like you we would have done this a long time ago. I will highly recommend you to anyone looking to create their estate plan with ease.
Needed will and trust. Abby explained it all in layman’s terms. Smart, relatable. Something I thought I would dread became a very easy transaction. She inspires trust and competency and I never felt that she talked down to me. I may have to stop telling lawyer jokes as result of Abby!
I took my complex probate matter to Powers and Neal and they handled it very professionally! I would use them again.
Abby is incredibly professional and knowledgable. My experience working with her was by far the best experience I’ve had in working with an attorney. She was patient, articulate, responsive, and was extremely fair and practical with billing. I had an excellent experience working with her and would recommend her enthusiastically to anyone I know.
Dear Abby, Thank you again for your help. I was pleased with your expertise, speed, and professionalism. I certainly will be calling you again if I need any help in the future.
Abby, Thank you so much for forming my LLC. You answered all of my questions and made this process easy. I felt very confident having you by my side when I started my business. I will definitely be recommending you to friends and calling you in the future.
My husband and I hired Abby to prepare our estate plan. She prepared a trust, wills, power of attorneys, and healthcare documents for us. We were so happy we were referred to Abby. She listened to our concerns, made great suggestions, and was an absolute pleasure to work with. Highly recommended.
Worked with Neal Law Firm for several months on various projects. Abby and John are both extremely thorough and a pleasure to work with.
Abby Neal is a powerhouse! She has helped me so much in my business – she’s guided me from filings with the Arizona Corporation Commission to my operating agreement to the next level(s) of my business. I highly recommend Abby and John, who are an amazing team and such bright lawyers!
Wills & Trusts
Clients who desire to leave their family in good financial condition, without difficulties, and with family harmony intact, look to an estate planning attorney for wills or trusts. Everyone has heard of wills and trusts, however, it’s often presumed that everyone knows the basics of these important documents.
A will is a written document that is signed and witnessed, and is considered a “death” document as it only goes into effect when you die. A will provides for the division and gifting of your accounts and property at death.
A trust is a formal relationship where the trustmaker names a trusted individual (trustee) to manage accounts and property for your benefit and the benefit of others. Because the trust is effective during your lifetime, it is referred to as a “living” document.
If you’re looking for asset protection in Scottsdale, Neal Law Firm looks forward to assisting you with your legal matters.
Estate Planning & Probate
Estate Planning is more than just planning for estate taxes. It provides for the orderly distribution of your assets upon your death. It also provides for the ability to manage your affairs in the event of a disability or incompetency while you are living.
Probate is the legal system which controls the transfer of your assets upon your death by the terms of your Will or, if you die without a Will, by state law. Each state has a series of laws which describes who should be in charge upon your death if you do not have a Will.

Christian Lawyers – Estate Planning & Business Law
We have represented hundreds of clients from diverse backgrounds—different ethnicities, races, genders, sexual orientations, and religions. We have found that working purely in service to our clients (not the other way around) works best for effective representation.
In searching for the “right” attorney, many factors ought to inform us of the decision—experience, expertise, accessibility, responsiveness, personality, and other factors. The attorney’s value system may also be of great importance, and rightfully so. Indeed, due to the nature of the representation, the attorney-client relationship relies heavily on trust between the two. To this, we are not shy about proclaiming this firm’s Judeo-Christian heritage and that we are Christian lawyers. Even in today’s sometimes combative legal landscape, it is possible to be a Christian lawyer.
