Estate Planning

The best time to do your Estate Planning is right now while you are alive and well with the mental capacity to make well thought out decisions.  Not having an estate plan can place an enormous burden on your loved ones.

Guardianship & Conservatorship

In the event that an adult becomes incapable of making his or her own decisions, a guardianship or conservatorship may be established, allowing a trusted person to handle the health and financial affairs of that individual. Where the two are often confused with each other, a guardianship and conservatorship are not one in the same.

Probate

When a loved one dies they almost always leave behind property and debts.  Oregon has a court supervised process to transfer property from a deceased person to their beneficiaries under a valid will or through intestate law, if there is no will.  A court will supervise the transfer of a decedent’s property after the payment of their debts.  This process is called probate.
