A Trusted Advisor to Families and Businesses Across the Country
Education and law are two of my greatest passions.
After obtaining my undergraduate degree from the University of Florida, I attended Harvard University’s Graduate School of Education where I studied educational pedagogy and learned how to effectively convey information to diverse groups of people. I then went on to study law and legal advocacy at the University of California, Berkeley (Boalt Hall) where I was a member of the California Law Review. After law school I was privileged to clerk for renowned civil rights jurist, Judge Damon J. Keith on the United States Court of Appeals and to work at one of Arizona’s premier law firms, Osborn Maledon. At the firm, I represented businesses and governmental entities in a variety of complex litigation matters in state and federal court.
In 2015, I founded Yaser Ali Law in order to focus on serving the needs of individuals, families, and small businesses. My exceptional training has enabled me to better understand my clients’ unique personal situations, to design creative legal solutions, and convey complex concepts in simple terms. Since then we’ve planned hundreds of millions of dollars of our clients’ wealth including millions in planned gifts to charities and helped business owners at every stage from early-stage startup to exit. So whether you’re contemplating drafting an estate plan for your loved ones, looking to sell your business or optimize a charitable gift, give us a call. We’d be honored to assist you.

Yaser Ali makes you feel very comfortable know matter how bad your problems are. After our first visit I was convinced he could resolve our problems, very knowledgeable on the law and how the system works. He has helped us with lawsuits on two different occasions and was a pleasure to work with. I would recommend him to anyone looking for results and not someone to just take your money. ThanksDon Pint (Phoenix, AZ)
Yaser, is very knowledgable in the field of estate planning and will preparation. He helped us immensely in figuring out who and how the distribution is determined among Muslim families. He was extremely patient as we stalled on several aspects of wealth designation. This process was difficult as it forces one to deal with death in a way that is holistic. Thank you Yaser for your kind and gentle manner.Anonymous Client Review Posted on Avvo
Yaser is a compassionate and dedicated lawyer. When I learned I had cancer, I knew that I needed to get my affairs in order. I was recommended to Yaser by a friend, and he didn’t disappoint. I had no clue where to start, but he put in the time to get to know me and my family and figure out exactly what we needed.Marianne, Scottsdale, AZ

He is also determined to provide the best service to his clients and I am personally honored to recommend him.Larry Hammond, Partner, Osborn Maledon
My wife and I consulted Yaser Ali to help develop our will and estate plan prior to leaving for Hajj. From the moment we contacted him, Yaser exuded professionalism, enthusiasm, compassion, efficiency and a remarkable mastery of the subject. He streamlined the process by allowing us to jointly compose our thoughts while simultaneously placing those considerations into a thorough and formal, legal Islamic framework. His expertise in both legal and traditional spiritual affairs makes him a true gem for the American Muslim community at large.Umair, Phoenix, AZ
