Estate Planning Attorney in Bend Oregon.pngEstate Planning Attorney 

The Francis Hansen Martin LLP attorneys have expertise in comprehensive estate planning, including the preparation of Wills, Trusts, Powers of Attorney and Health Care Proxies. Our law firm also assists clients with large estates who wish to minimize the impact of wealth transfer taxes. We will guide you through the estate planning process, provide counsel for documents such as wills or living trusts, and health care proxies.

Furthermore, we provide our clients with the necessary information and options to reduce taxes on one’s estate. If a family member passes away we help coordinate all of the difficult and sometimes confusing tasks that arise after, like properly administering of the estate. This may include the administration of a trust for those clients that have revocable or irrevocable trusts, or the initiation of a probate if necessary to ensure that assets are transferred to the intended recipients after death. Additional items include, but are not limited to, dividing trusts in marital or survivor trusts, filing estate and income tax returns, transferring property heirs, IRAs and other retirement assets, life insurance benefits, and division of personal property.

We want our clients to carry out their lifetime goals and dreams. Familial and financial situations regularly change and is why we keep revise/ update our plans to the changing circumstances. Whether in state or coming from out of state, contact us for estate planning questions or guidance at (541) 389-5010.
