Practice Areas

Real Estate

Whether you are purchasing a parcel of undeveloped land, selling commercial real estate, or engaging in another type of real estate transaction, our legal team can help. We are committed to providing you with a real estate attorney who can represent your interests in your real estate transaction from start to finish.

The real estate lawyers of Provident Law® also offer a solution-oriented approach to resolving real estate disputes as they arise. We can often resolve these types of disputes through informal negotiations or private mediation before going to court. However, if litigation is necessary, our attorneys stand ready to advocate for your legal interests in the courtroom.

Business Law

The business lawyers at Provident Law® have represented the interests of all types of businesses, from small start-ups and closely-held companies to franchises and publicly held companies. We advise business owners and entrepreneurs in all aspects of business law and provide advice and planning to help them establish and grow their businesses. When business disputes arise, an Arizona business attorney is also here to answer your questions, explain your legal rights, and work with the parties involved to find the best resolution possible to your dispute.

Family Law

We offer legal representation in all areas of family law, including dissolution of marriage, child custody, legal decision-making, parenting time, and support. However, family law disputes often encompass more than just divorces and child custody matters. We also handle cases involving prenuptial and postnuptial agreements, adoption, emancipation, and protective orders. We support you in seeking justice with professionalism and compassion in all these matters.

Excess Proceeds

At Provident Law ®, an experienced real estate lawyer can help you recover excess proceeds from real estate sold as a result of a foreclosure . You may be entitled to recover excess proceeds from the sale as an owner, heir, or interested third parties, such as junior or secondary lienholders and involuntary creditors. For instance, the bank that holds the first mortgage on a home might be the primary lienholder who files the foreclosure action. The bank that holds the second mortgage on the property is a junior lienholder. Finally, an involuntary creditor might be a credit card company that has sued the homeowner, obtained a judgment against him for an unpaid debt, and then recorded the judgment as a lien against the home.

Commercial Litigation

We have represented clients across various industries in all forums throughout Arizona, from trial courts to alternative dispute resolution venues. Our exclusive focus on Arizona law has allowed us to hone our litigation and dispute resolution skills. This level of experience allows us to advise our clients and enable them to make well-informed decisions that are critical to the litigation process.

Real Estate Disputes

Our attorneys offer a solution-orientated approach to resolving disputes. Many real estate disputes can be resolved before going to court, either through informal negotiations or through private mediation. But if litigation is necessary, our attorneys are prepared to represent your legal interests at trial.

Bankruptcy | Creditor’s Rights

Our firm represents institutional and non-institutional creditors seeking to protect and maximize their collections from their slow-paying or non-paying customers. However, if customers file for bankruptcy, collection efforts must stop. In these situations, we can represent the interests of creditors in bankruptcy proceedings and apply for relief from the bankruptcy court.


We help lenders and other creditors collect what is owed. Our collection team has decades of experience with collection matters. Most collection matters can be handled on a contingency fee basis so we do not get paid until you get paid.

Estate and Trust Planning

Planning tailored to realize family objectives to ensure that your assets are passed on in the manner you feel is appropriate to the people who are important to you.

Adre and Administrative Law

Our attorneys represent licensees with application process at the Arizona Department of Real Estate and in responding to Complaints and Audits from the ADRE.

Church and Nonprofit

Nonprofit organizations are crucial to society, particularly in a world that is increasingly becoming more profit-oriented. These organizations, as well as churches and religious organizations, perform a role consciously dedicated to improving other people’s lives. However, like any other business, these entities have concrete legal needs. We fill those legal needs by providing charities, foundations, churches, private schools, and other types of nonprofits with transactional and general counsel services.

At Provident Law®, we are staunch supporters of religious liberties. The first clause of the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution commands that “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.” Therefore, we defend churches and other religious entities as they exercise the religious rights and freedoms that our Constitution guarantees

Probate and Trust Administration

Our attorneys handle probate and trust administration as needed to wrap up the final affairs of a deceased person. Probate administration occurs when courts oversee the disposition of property and debts in a person’s estate, including distributing assets to the persons entitled to them and resolving creditor claims against the estate. We also administer trusts, a private administration process that follows the terms of the trust.

Wills and Trusts

The estate planning attorneys at Provident Law® can help you create a comprehensive estate plan tailored to meet your objectives. We can help ensure that your estate plan carries out your intent by passing on assets as you choose to the people who are most important to you. In addition, by completing legal documents such as wills, trusts, durable powers of attorney, healthcare powers of attorney, and living wills, we can make your wishes known to your surviving family members on various important issues.

Guardianship | Conservator Matters

Guardianships and conservatorships are legal proceedings designed to protect those persons – minors or adults – who cannot protect themselves. We can assist you in filing for these legal rights to protect another person and handle their affairs. We also can help guide you through your rights and responsibilities as the guardian and/or conservator of an incapacitated person.

Mediation and Arbitration

Mediation and arbitration are alternative forms of dispute resolution as opposed to civil litigation and trials. Mediation and arbitration are often quicker and cheaper than litigation and the result is usually final and non-appealable.


Most cases are resolved through mediation or settlement. But some cases proceed to trial and then end up on appeal. We are prepared to protect our clients’ legal interests at every stage of the process.

Religious Liberties

The first clause of the First Amendment to the United States Constitution commands that “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.”
