Mr. Schneider provided me with my estate planning portfolio, which included updating my will, property power of attorney, health care power of attorney, authorization to disclose protected health information, nomination of guardian and conservator and appointment of person to make decisions concerning disposition of remains. All of these documents were organized into a binder, along with other forms for me to use in making my wishes known to my appointees and heirs. He was very professional in our interactions, answered my questions to my satisfaction and explained terms and other legal jargon in an understandable way. Thanks to Mr. Schneider and his staff, my estate planning is up to date and clearly organized, which is a great relief.
When I attended one of Richard Schneider's estate planning seminars, I knew I had found the right attorney to prepare my Will. Richard made the complicated issues clear and understandable to the lay person, and my confidence in his firm only grew as I met him for the initial consultation and then proceeded with the documents. They are so professional, and they have thought of everything! In addition to the original notarized documents (which include many more than the Will itself), they presented me with a beautiful binder with all of my copies, step-by-step procedures for my designated representative, lists of people to contact upon my death, where important papers are kept, and more. The fixed fee is a blessing. Further, they welcome follow-up questions from both me and from my personal representative, at no additional charge. I couldn't be happier with the services provided by Richard and his associate, Ben, and I'm grateful to have the peace of mind of having these important documents in place.
We were apprehensive about getting a will made. To many unknowns and confusing questions. Richard Schneider and staff made the experience easy to understand and as expeditious as possible. The follow up and any questions have been handled quickly and to our satisfaction. They also provide a newsletter and various seminars and learning opportunities throughout the year.
I had read that this chap was going to speak on family trusts at a local Sr. Center (a place I never go to) - attended and was convinced that Schneider was just the attorney I was looking for. That was some years ago - and still pleased.
Richard took care of some complex problems and took the time to explain and answer all of my questions so I could understand as fully as I wanted. He did not charge me for phone calls, and always returned my calls in a timely manner,. I also made use of his associate tax attorney Erin Evers, and am very happy with the work they did for me. His firm hosts an annual client appreciation event which is also very informative in a relaxing and enjoyable setting.
Recently, I updated my "death" documents to fit my current needs. Because a grandchild not born at the time of my original will, etc., has since been diagnosed as having special needs, I wanted to provide in the best way for his future, along with the other typically-developing grandchildren. I was very impressed to find that Richard had already put in the necessary verbiage to cover that eventuality. He also reminded me, when I asked about a way to keep track of all my details necessary for my family, that he already provided such materials in my "Notebook". My update--as well as my original documents made several years ago--were thorough and well done. I also found it pleasant to work with him and others in the office.
Richard and his team are committed to educating the community about estate planning. Richard assisted us in making important decisions for our family and future. He approaches his work with sensitivity and thoroughness.
Richard is an outstanding estate planning lawyer. He doesn't pressure anyone and is very knowledgeable . We are very please to have him represent both of us.
My wife and I just completed our new Living Trust with Richard Schneider's firm, and were most pleased with the finished product and personalized service.
The entire process was stress-free and all deadlines were met on time.
Any questions that we had were promptly answered and the quality of the response was outstanding.
The entire staff of the law practice was most responsive and attentive to serving us as valued clients.
My wife and I would highly recommend Richard Schneider for any estate planning needs.
I met Richard B. Schneider at a public talk he gives on "Who Needs a Will in Oregon?" & within a week I hired him to put together a revocable Living Trust. Richard and Ben Rasche are thorough and pro-active; we review my trust every five years. Richard also introduced me to Docubank and included one year subscription for emergency access to My Medical Directives. The Law Offices of Richard B. Schneider work as a team to provide service to clients and I appreciate this approach.
