Hello! We Miss You!
Working remotely, Zoom meetings, and at-home signings are all part of our new daily routine here at Fitzwater Law!
As we all continue to cope with new uncertainties each day, we are happy to say that we can still assist our clients by phone, email and video conferencing. Don’t be surprised if you hear a dog bark or a kid asking a question in the background!
Fitzwater Law’s nine attorneys are eager to help you with your estate planning and probate matters. Please take a minute to learn more about our practice areas.
Has the extra time at home allowed you to think about your Will or Trust? Whether you’ve put off your estate planning for years (so common!) or would like to make a change to your current plan, we are here to help you. The estate planning attorneys at Fitzwater Law have extensive experience with a broad range of estate planning issues from complex taxes to blended families to establishing trusts for children.
We know you are concerned about your loved one with special needs. Fitzwater Law is well recognized as one of the leading firms in Oregon working with families who have a loved one experiencing disability. We can assist you with all of the legal aspects of special needs trusts, from assisting you in the creation of a trust to funding trusts to representing trustees who are responsible for managing trust assets.
GUARDIANSHIP AND CONSERVATORSHIP
If you have a family member who is unable to handle their medical or financial decisions you might need to become their guardian or conservator. A conservator is also necessary when a minor receives money. A guardian can be necessary when a disabled person turns 18. The attorneys at Fitzwater Law have the experience and skill to assist you and your family with your guardianship and conservatorship needs.
Trusted legal advice can be essential when you or a family member needs long-term care. The earlier you come to see us, the more options you are likely to have. Fitzwater Law’s attorneys are here to assist you and your family with Medicaid eligibility, Income Cap Trusts, spend-down options, applying for Medicaid and responding to a Medicaid Estate Recovery claim.
We know, the last thing you want to deal with when a family member dies is the legal stuff. The probate attorneys at Fitzwater Law compassionately guide family members and friends who are serving in the role of personal representative (sometimes called an executor) navigate the probate court rules and requirements. Let us help you in this difficult time.
Sometimes you need a strong advocate on your side. Our litigation team couples decades of experience with a drive to provide our clients with exemplary service in all litigation matters related to contested guardianships and conservatorships, trust disputes, will contests, elder financial abuse, and undue influence. We achieve results and represent our clients with professionalism and a commitment to success. We look forward to representing clients who seek just results.
Fitzwater Law’s nine friendly, knowledgeable attorneys are dedicated to helping individuals and families tackle some of life's toughest legal challenges. Give us a call at 503.786.8191 to start the conversation with one of our experienced attorneys today. We are here for you!
