Estate Planning

Oregon Wills Attorneys

No matter what stage of life you are in, you should have a basic estate plan in place. In most cases, you should at least have a simple will, a power of attorney and an advance medical directive. Estate planning is the single most important thing you can do for your family before your passing. It is your opportunity to make your wishes known about how you want your property distributed, your medical care handled, and your minor children cared for if you pass away unexpectedly.

Many people avoid putting together an estate plan because they find the legal issues to be too overwhelming. At the law firm of Evashevski, Elliott, Cihak & Hediger, P.C.., our Albany and Corvallis estate planning attorneys understand the anxiety that can come with developing an estate plan. We will walk you through the entire process and make sure that you have all your questions answered before we proceed.
