The Law Office of
Timothy J. Doherty
Creating Individual Estate Plans
Assistance With Trust and Probate Related Matters
Serving Clients in Oregon and California
Tim spent more than 30 years helping people as a firefighter before going to law school and becoming an attorney. While he studied the various areas of law he realized that whatever area he practiced it had to be something that satisfied his desire to help people. Finally, based on his personal experience and training, he decided to go into estate planning, because it most closely fit his goal to keep helping people plan for and deal with some of the most challenging situations they can face.
Trust based Estate Plan
A trust based estate plan includes a trust(s), pour over will(s), power(s) of attorney, advance health care directive(s) with HIPAA waiver(s) and your final instructions.
Will based Estate Plan
A will based estate plan includes a will(s), power(s) of attorney, advance health care directive(s) with HIPAA waiver(s) and your final instructions.
Often folks have an existing plan, or individual documents, such as a trust, will, advance directive or power of attorney that is old or from out of state. I am happy to review those documents with you and help you decide if they still meet your needs, or if you might want to update or replace them with documents that more accurately reflect your current situation. There is no fee or obligation for a review.
Small Estate, Administration
I offer assistance with probate or the small estate process. If you have been named as the personal representative or executor of someone's will, or need to settle the estate for someone who did not have a will, I can help you through that process. If you are an acting Trustee and have questions regarding the administration of the Trust, I can help as much or as little as you need to feel comfortable.
If you fail to plan,
you are planning to fail.
