Proactive Estate Planning For Your Family’s Future
Estate planning intersects with family law because of its relationship to your family’s future. When done properly, estate plans can make clear your wishes for the distribution of your assets and property, and save your loved ones the trouble of dealing with Oregon’s probate process.
At Mastanduno Law Group, our founding lawyers, Steven Mastanduno and Nate Jones, believe that creating a relaxed environment for tackling difficult legal challenges is the best way to be able to work with our clients effectively. Our firm was established on the belief that superior client service is the result of closely listening to our client’s life situations. Because this is a priority for us, we create estate plans that address the unique needs of you and your loved ones.
No Matter Your Age Or Family’s Size, We Can Craft A Plan For You
A lot of younger adults may not believe they need an estate plan because they have few possessions or are just getting started with their career. But once you marry or have a child, you need to consider how to protect your family and pass your possessions to them.
Later in life, if you have acquired more assets, you may also be concerned with the ease of transfer from generation to generation. Another concern people of all ages need to consider is whether their wishes for medical care will be honored if they are no longer able to speak for themselves.
Our firm can help you draw up the appropriate legal documents to cover your situation, including:
- Constructing a legally valid last will and testament
- Crafting a trust that protects your estate and allows your heirs to bypass probate
- Drafting advance medical directives and powers of attorney documents that ensure your end-of-life wishes are carried out
- Preparing probate paperwork that meets state legal requirements
- Representing individuals in protective proceedings and adult guardianships
Our concern in estate planning is the well-being of our clients. We recommend plans and strategies that will benefit your family and provide you with peace of mind.
