Plan Ahead for Your Family's Future. Seeing Our Clients' Probate & Estate Planning Matters Through from Start to Finish

Estate Planning, Probate & Wills

Washington County Estate Planning Attorneys

At Karpstein & Verhulst P.C., our Hillsboro estate planning lawyers act as sound advisors when helping clients plan for their family’s financial future. When creating a will or trust, it is important to make sure there is no room for dispute or interpretation of your wishes among family members. Leaving important decisions to the court, or to anyone who may not understand your intentions or desires, can destroy the plan you had envisioned.

Regardless of the size of your estate, you should make sure that your particular wishes are carried out, which is why it is crucial that you find a caring, competent attorney. Our firm has helped many families plan for their futures over the last 30 years, and we can help you create an estate plan, will, trust, power of attorney, advanced directive, or any number of legal mechanisms customized to meet your needs.

Step-by-Step Will Planning

One of the biggest pitfalls people fall into when estate planning is failing to consider all of their asses and create a legally binding document. It is important that your estate plan is comprehensive—providing specific instructions on how you want your estate to be distributed so that nothing is left up for grabs. Anything left unaccounted for in your will or trust can lead to disputes between family and friends, and may even jeopardize the stipulations you did create in your plan.

When helping you plan your estate, we will make sure you consider the following factors as necessary:

  • Conservatorships
  • Estate Litigation
  • Guardianships
  • Irrevocable Trusts
  • Living Trusts
  • Living Wills
  • Powers of Attorney
  • Probate
  • Small Estates
  • Trust Administration

If you have thoughts about how you would provide for your family or give to charitable causes upon becoming incapacitated or deceased, our Washington County estate planning lawyers are here to help. Our straightforward approach can put you at ease and make you feel confident about your financial legacy.
