Conscientious Estate Planning For Oregonians

Your Local Estate Planning Attorney

You are never too young or too old to establish an estate plan. If you do not already have one in place, now is the time to take steps to protect your future, family and legacy. While no one knows what the future holds, estate planning allows you to safeguard your assets and make important decisions before real life gets in the way.

I am attorney Paul Heatherman, and since 1995, I have focused my practice on helping the Bend community implement effective estate plans. As a local attorney, I understand our state’s unique lifestyle, challenges and concerns. Outside of helping clients at the, I formally served as the governor of the Oregon Trial Lawyers Association, and I also served on the Oregon State Bar Procedures and Practice Committee. I am also in my tenth year as a trial panel member of the Oregon State Disciplinary Panel Association.

Helping You Plan For Real Life

At the, I focus my practice solely on providing a range of estate planning services. When you meet with me, I will take the time to get to know you, listen to your concerns and understand your goals.

I can assist you with a variety of estate planning concerns, including:

If you have recently moved to Oregon from out of state, I’m sure you have discovered what makes living here so special. You may quickly discover that Oregon has high estate taxes, ranging from 10% to 16% depending on the size of your estate. Even if you have an already established estate plan, you should still revise your plan to take Oregon’s laws into consideration.
