My estate planning practice focuses on the protection of minor children, wealth preservation, and values-based planning, as well as planning for incapacity. I love supporting my clients with holistic plans to achieve peace of mind today by knowing they have secured their futures for tomorrow. I work with clients to counsel them about the law and empower clients to choose a plan that truly represents their priorities, values, and budget.
I was raised in Flagstaff and I am grateful to live and practice in my hometown community. I attended Northern Arizona University, graduating summa cum laude. I received her law degree from Lewis and Clark Law School, graduating cum laude. I began my law career in private practice as an associate at Aspey, Watkins & Diesel, practicing family law, bankruptcy, and civil litigation. In 2012, I joined the Coconino County Attorney’s Office, serving as a Deputy County Attorney on criminal and civil matters for the County. In 2019, I founded Flagstaff Law Group, a women-owned law practice serving Northern Arizona in matters involving estate and business planning, real estate, and elder law.
I am also a busy mother of two boys. I credit my kids for bringing me a deeper awareness of the needs of families and for inspiring me to design plans that families can count on to work when they are needed most. When I’m not practicing law, I enjoy reading, gardening, and playing outdoors in this beautiful community with my family.
“Ashley and her staff are wonderful! They were easy to work with, and very thorough with our estate planning.” Dawn Rivas
“Ashley & her team were incredible as they walked us through the process of creating our estate plan. This is not a topic people like to talk about but it is something that needs to be in place sooner rather than later, especially if you have children. Flagstaff Law Group gave us step-by-step guidance and broke it down into manageable tasks. Thank you Ashley!” Alison Rucker
“We worked with the Flagstaff Law Group over about 4.5 months to put in place a comprehensive estate plan for our family. Our experience was overwhelmingly positive. They were organized, thorough, and responsive every step of the way and I felt like I was in good hands from day one. I would highly recommend the Flagstaff Law Group to anyone seeking out help with estate planning and all the pieces that go into that process.” Kathleen Kennedy
“Flagstaff Law Group has made me feel informed, empowered and comforted about my estate protection plan. Ashley makes you feel like you’re part of the Flagstaff Law Group family and she genuinely cares about your well-being – both financially and personally. Ashley embraces a wholistic approach to estate planning and she incorporated our financial and personal goals into our plan. As someone who began with a minimal understanding of (read: aversion to) estate planning, I appreciated how patient Ashley was (and continues to be) with my (naive) questions. My experience at Flagstaff Law Group has given me the tools to really understand my assets and asset protections. Furthermore, I cannot express how grateful I am for Ashely’s flexibility and willingness to work with our crazy schedules. I highly encourage anyone looking for comprehensive, wholistic, and value-based planning to use Flagstaff Law Group. :)” Renee Jordan Ward
“My wife and I attended a free workshop and then decided to work with Ashley to set up a Living Trust for our children. The workshop was awesome. It was not a high pressure sales tactic but rather a chance to ask questions, get advice and decide if moving forward for us made sense.
Once we decided to move forward Ashley and her staff were top notch in every way. We are so happy we decided to set up a Trust and highly recommend Ashley and The Flagstaff Law Group.” Gregg Schneider
“We work with Ms. DeBoard and have loved the comprehensive and personalized service. Highly recommended.” Alice Gibb
We begin with a comprehensive inventory of everything you own, and everyone you love, and consider it all in a working meeting, called a Family Wealth Planning Session, to guide you to clarify your financial life and legacy goals before we draft a single document.
We work with you throughout every life stage to map out the most likely scenarios for you and the people you love, planning for each as your life, the law, and your assets change over time.
Our Life & Legacy Planning process ensures everything that matters most -- from your financial assets to your values, insights, stories and experience -- are captured and documented during your life and cared for over the generations to come.
Transparency in our process, and our fees … all of which are flat fees, agreed to in advance, based on your choices and with no surprises, ensuring we stay on the same side of the table - supporting you to make a lifetime of great decisions - every step of the way.
Our systems help you get clear and organized, overcoming the exact issues that keep most estate plans from actually working when they are needed most. We help you leave your family with a gift of love, and not a mess.
One-and-done estate plans focused only on money are a recipe for a big mess. We help you throughout every stage of life and be there for the people you love, when you can’t be.
