Probate and Estate Planning Attorneys in Gresham
The probate process can be very difficult for families. It’s hard to lose someone you love, and then deal with all the financial and legal complexities resulting from a probate. We seek to streamline the probate process, and make it as simple, efficient and understandable as possible – while protecting our clients by making sure all legal requirements are met.
Our Probate Practice
We conduct our probate practice in a compassionate, thoughtful way, trying to avoid disputes with creditors and with family members. Probate is never fun, but we try to make it as easy as possible for families. The grieving is the hard part. The probate should not be.
We understand that many people are dealing with probate for the first time. We provide detailed written instructions and checklists for clients to follow., When necessary, we set up regular meetings with Personal Representatives to guide them through the next steps. Our probate attorneys are experienced in other areas of law that often are relevant in probate, including family law, landlord-tenant, debtor-creditor disputes, domestic violence, homicide investigations, and protective proceedings. We work closely with professionals like realtors, appraisers, and accountants to make the process go as smoothly as possible.
Some Wills set up trusts for certain beneficiaries. Sometimes the Will creates a trust for a minor child. Sometimes the Will creates a trust for a loved one who needs to stay eligible for government benefits. Sometimes the Will creates a trust for someone lacking financial management skills or who has addictions or mental health issues. Navigating the requirements of these testamentary trusts is challenging. We help our clients ensure these trusts are properly set up and administered.
