Tualatin Special Needs Trust Lawyer

A variety of wills and trusts exist to meet your goals and wishes for transfer of wealth to your family, friends or philanthropic causes, including:

  • Simple wills
  • Pour-over wills, in which the proceeds of a will are used to create a trust
  • Living wills, also known as advanced healthcare directives
  • Revocable trusts, in which the person creating the trust is able to modify the trust's terms
  • Irrevocable trusts, by which modifications to the terms of the trust cannot be made without permission of the trust's beneficiary
  • Special needs trusts, intended to provide assets for a disabled or elderly loved one while preserving his or her eligibility for government assistance programs

Our Tualatin special needs trust attorney provides skilled, straightforward assistance in the creation of whichever wills and trusts suit your individual and family circumstances, for a flat fee.

Attorney Bedor has experience and astute skill in selecting and creative the optimal legal instrument to serve your unique purposes. He can also advise you on important issues you may face. For example, divorced parents should know that if they leave substantial property to a minor child without creating a trust, the court will appoint a conservator or manager to handle the financial issues involved -- and the person most likely to be named is your child's other parent (your former spouse). On the other hand, a trust can give you the flexibility to decide who your trustee will be and at what age your child should receive the trust assets.

We can also update your wills or trusts in the wake of a life-changing event, such as marriage; divorce; or the birth, adoption or death of a family member.
