We were overdue for estate planning. John prepared wills, powers of attorney and medical directives for my husband and me. He asked us questions to discover our circumstances and what we wanted to accomplish with the various legal instruments. We discussed trusts and taxes, and he answered all of our questions. He helped us make good decisions about how to manage the transfer of our large estate to our young adult children (who could potentially receive large bequests before they are mature enough to handle those responsibilities). He designed solutions that solved all the problems we were dealing with. We will be meeting again with John every couple of years to update our documents. We have complete trust in him and look forward to working with him in the future. And my husband is an attorney--he found John to be thoroughly competent and professional.

John was referred to us for establishing a Family Trust. His efficiency, expertise, and understanding of our situtaiton was deeply appreciated. John's direct approach, along with his comforting professional demeanor, emphasised the importance and understanding in the development of our trust.

He is knowledgeable, helpful, friendly and patient. A true Oregonian in the best sense of the word.
