your partners in planning

Thank you so much for taking the time to learn more about us. We look forward to meeting you!


Jennifer Salem, Esq.


I was raised in the Midwest and moved to Nevada to attend college at the University of Nevada, Reno. While at UNR, I joined Pi Beta Phi sorority and fostered many life-long friendships that I treasure to this day. 

Following law school at the University of San Diego, I moved back to Nevada and began my legal practice in the Las Vegas office of a mid-sized law firm. As a Partner in that firm, I represented national developers in complex litigation matters. 

Valerie and I worked together for a time and after we both had left, we began to talk about opening a firm where we could work with people and families to help them protect their assets and provide them with peace of mind. Origins was born from that excitement and enthusiasm.

Jennifer is licensed in Nevada and Washington.

Jennifer has been appointed an arbitrator for the Eighth Judicial District Court and was selected as a member of the Nevada Supreme Court's Permanent Guardianship Commission. 

Valerie Del Grosso, Esq.


I am a proud Las Vegas native, practicing law since 2008 representing businesses, business owners, and their families. In 2014, I struck out on my own for a more direct and personal relationship with my clients- offering faster response times, more personalized service, and flat fees. 

As I got to know my clients personally, they turned to me more and more to protect the fruits of their hard work through customized estate plans. This became more than just an added service when a friend's father was diagnosed with Alzheimer's at a young age. I learned about new estate planning techniques to help his family avoid losing everything to nursing home costs, and Origins Estate & Elder Planning Center was officially born.

Valerie is licensed in Nevada. 

Valerie has been appointed an arbitrator for the Eighth Judicial District Court. She is a member of Dementia Friendly Nevada. 

more than just a free consultation

We are different. And this is why it's important to you. 

Many lawyers offer "free consultations." Sometimes, these are held by paralegals or other non-lawyer staff and referred to in the office as "intake meetings." If that sounds cold and sterile, that's because it is. And often, these appointments result in an expensive set of documents that will collect dust on your shelf, doing little to address your real and unique planning concerns, or result in a court proceeding that you are not comfortable with. We do things differently so that we can work with a limited number of families each month and give them the attention and time they deserve. 

Origins Planning Session.

Rather than hurry you through an initial meeting, we set aside one hour for you to meet directly with one of our attorneys so we can get to know you and learn about what is important to you family. We answer questions and discuss a plan that is tailored to you- one that you understand and benefit from immediately. 

The welcome package for estate planning clients.

This is the start of an important relationship, and we treat it like one. When you schedule your session, we provide a welcome package to prepare you to get the most from your Planning Session. Whether or not you retain us, you'll find this packet full of helpful information to organize your affairs so you can make the best decisions for your family. 

Our process.

At the Planning Session, we will learn if we are a fit for you and you for us. For those who go forward, we offer flat fees so you can feel comfortable calling our office at no extra charge any time.
