Experienced Phoenix Area Estate Planning Lawyer

At the Law Offices of John E. Perry Jr., we believe that experience comes from life, not just law books. Attorney John “Ned” Perry is a former corporate attorney with more than three decades of experience resolving the most complex legal issues. His experience extends beyond the limits of a law office. Ned and his wife, Hiroko, have shared years of experience successfully fighting for legal rights and opportunities on behalf of their adult daughter, Annie, born with Down syndrome.

Together, the team brings decades of compassion, knowledge and an in-depth understanding of the critical estate planning and elder law issues that are most important to its fellow senior citizens residing throughout the Phoenix metro area. We invite you to learn more about Ned’s experience and professional credentials, below.

My mother’s contested guardianship was a difficult, gut-wrenching process I had to conduct entirely from outside Arizona until the actual hearing. Ned spent a lot of time on the phone with me, walking through all of my options, even advising about matters not strictly related to the actual guardianship proceeding. His ability and willingness to counsel clients as well as be their legal advocate is especially important when you have to take over the affairs of your own parent, against the wishes of the parent and another family member. I’m very glad I chose Ned to help me with this formidable task, and not just because of the successful outcome of the court proceeding.
