Upon the death of a family member, loved one, and/or significant person in your life, what needs to be done to wind-up the financial affairs of the deceased? The decedent may have made detailed plans in anticipation of death (a Revocable Living Trust) or may have done nothing. The decedent may have left a valid Last Will and Testament or may have died without a Last Will and Testament. 

If there is a valid Last Will and Testament, the Will probably names a personal representative or executor to handle the decedent’s financial affairs. If there is no valid Last Will and Testament, the family should designate someone to look at the decedent’s financial affairs to determine what needs to be done to wind-up the decedent’s financial affairs. If there is a Revocable Living Trust, the Trust Agreement probably designates a Successor Trustee.

The guidance of an experienced Estate attorney can help formulate a strategy for the right course of action and for minimizing costs. Can the assets within the Estate be distributed to the heirs without Probate? Does the Estate qualify for a less costly Small Estate Affidavit process? If judicial Probate is necessary, how do you get started and what is the legal procedure?

Administration of an Estate can involve legal issues in many different areas of law, such as elder law, trust law, real estate law, insurance law, family law, contract law, business law, corporate law, debtor-creditor law, Federal and State tax law, and/or civil litigation. Choosing an attorney with extensive knowledge and a depth of experience in many areas of law and finance can make the difference between an orderly or chaotic administration of the Estate.

Building and maintaining trust within the family and heirs are a major nonlegal issue in handling an Estate. A lack of trust or faith that the Estate will be properly administered can quickly lead to very contentious and costly legal issues.

We offer a free 30-minute initial consultation for preliminary Decedent's  Estate Evaluation, Estate Administration, and Probate cases. Take advantage of this initial free consultation for a preliminary evaluation of what course of action may be necessary to wind up the Estate. The initial consultation will help you determine if we are the right law office to work with you on the Estate. We prefer an in-office initial consultation to have an in-person meeting. If an in-office initial consultation is inconvenient, an initial telephone consultation can be arranged. Either way, the initial 30-minute consultation will be free.

Larry K Gray & Associates, PC welcomes clients from within and outside the State of Oregon who needs to investigate, manage, or wind-up a deceased family member’s Estate, Family Trust, or Probate related issue within Yamhill County, Washington County, Clackamas County, Hood River County, Wasco County, Columbia County, Clatsop County, Marion County, Polk County, Linn County, Benton County, Lane County, or Tillamook County, in the State of Oregon. We will make efforts to accommodate and assist with the difficulties associated with handling an Estate from a long distance.
