Highly recommended
I needed a trust and Ms Moneyhun came highly recommended. Working with her and her assistant Audrey was a pleasure. They patiently explained the entire process to me and worked with my family and me to give us the trust we needed.

Awesome communication
Marisa is top notch. She clearly communicates pro's and con's while guiding you through the process. Best "listener" I have ever had while working with a business professional. My only personal regret is that I wish I knew of this firm years ago!

Hired for a Will
Marisa was very knowledgeable and very personable. A good listener. Asked good questions. Gave clear explanations of unclear legal language. Offered relevant ideas to think about that I hadn't thought of. I asked for a will and ended with 3 additional related and necessary documents. A very pleased customer.

Responsive, Smart and Compassionate
Marisa is clearly an expert in her field, but she and her team also prioritize being responsive to client concerns and needs. Through the entire working relationship with Marisa, she was very thoughtful and gave great advice and was also compassionate and kind. She worked seamlessly with the folks on her team to respond quickly to my every inquiry and I can't recommend her enough and you or your friend/family would be in excellent hands if you work with her.

My Estate review
I highly recommend Marisa Moneyhun for your Estate Planning needs. Living outside the Portland area was not an issue. Email was prompt and clear. Communication was top notch.

Out of state Probate
When my father passed, I was left with managing his estate without a will, and from out of state. I researched probate attorneys in the Portland area. Marisa Moneyhun was one of five attorneys that I narrowed it down to and spoke with. Marisa stood out to me because her experience and involvement in shaping probate practice in Oregon. After our first conversation it was clear that she was the right person to assist me in the probate process. Marisa's competent, efficient manner of conducting business was complimented by her compassionate demeanor. Quality legal representation/guidance can also be kind and thoughtful. The entire legal team at Kehoe Moneyhun Law was exceptional. I have referred friends and family to the practice knowing that they will be in good hands during a difficult time. Sincerely Nick T.

Highly recommend, very patient and thorough team
Marisa and her team are great. They were very patient to answer all of our questions and help us make the best decisions for our family regarding our will, medical power of attorney, trusts, etc. It is great to have a lawyer who can translate all of that to everyday language and explain the practical implications of our decisions.

Knowledgeable Lawyer that makes THE process extremely easy
Upon moving to Oregon in 2015, Marisa was instrumental in getting our Trust and Wills updated to OR requirements. Marisa is prompt and very responsive, friendly and knowledgeable about all things related to Trusts and Wills. One word that describes Maris is thorough. So when we needed to update our Trust and Wills in 2022, we relied on Marisa once again to help us get our affairs in order. Again, Marisa was very responsive and made the process extremely easy!

Efficient and courteous
I contacted Marisa to transfer title of a property for me in Oregon, as part of an estate. I live out of state and was looking for someone to do the job efficiently and at a reasonable cost - and was not disappointed. Marisa got it all done promptly and professionally. She was pleasant to interact with as well.

Caring, expert attorney
Marisa was kind, caring, professional and calm. Her expertise in handling probate issues and unhappy people kept the case rolling along with little drama. Marisa was always responsive, approachable, and was wonderful to work with. Her fees were very reasonable and she was worth every penny of them. I highly recommend her.

Highly Recommend
My husband and I had our wills updated by Marisa Moneyhun and were very impressed by her efficient and thorough work. She dealt with our wills in a highly professional manner, keeping us informed with e-mail drafts to make sure our information was to our satisfaction and asked pertinent questions to clarify any concerns or questions we had in the process or planning our Estate. Marisa was not only highly professional but also very thoughtful and caring. I would highly recommend Marisa for anyone seeking Estate Planning. My husband and I have already recommended her to many of our friends and relatives.

Experienced, knowledgeable, and friendly!
Marisa helped my husband and I draft our wills and our advance directives, as well as other estate planning paperwork. She was very knowledgeable and helpful with guiding us in our decisions regarding the care of children. She suggested some ideas that we had not thought of and we appreciated her input and expertise. Marisa was very punctual, professional, and quick to respond to all emails. We had a very positive experience working with her and we will use her again in the future.

1 out of 10 - Ms. Moneyhun is a 15!
Ms. Moneyhun was absolutely amazing with my case; she is fearless, confident, attentive, professional, compassionate and empathetic. The importance of meshing well with your attorney is heavy, I knew immediately upon meeting her that she was a good fit for me and my case. Ms. Moneyhun is worldly and cultivated, a woman of her word. I appreciate her attention to detail, proactive nature, fairness and how respectful she was to all parties involved. Ms. Moneyhun has contributed to the success of my divorce and I am ever grateful for everything she has done for me.
