Exceptional Estate Planning Attorney, Howard
At the time of my retirement 18 years ago as a licensed mental health professional, a Revocable Living Trust was set up for me by an Estate Planning Attorney practicing in a large metropolitan region in a different state. I relocated to a small coastal city in central Oregon 8 years ago and recently needed to find an estate planning attorney to update my estate plan. It was in my vital interest to find a very competent attorney in estate planning whose genuine primary focus and interest is geared towards establishing and fulfilling what is in the best interest of the client I went online to research potential estate planning attorneys practicing in Oregon within a 100 mile radius, attended my local Senior Center sponsored all-day seminar consisting of 8 experts in estate planning and was especially impressed with Stacey D. Mealer's articulate and down to earth presentation, and finally solicited the local Senior Centers Director's recommendation and Stacey Mealer's name was mentioned without hesitation. Upon retaining Stacey Mealer as my Estate Planning Attorney, she provides a very friendly, respectful professional demeanor, safe and prominent trusting atmosphere which quickly helped me to feel very comfortable in sharing intimate details of my life situation as part of the process in developing my estate plan. Stacey's genuine caring, ability to attentively and efficiently listen and her unusual ability to intuitively and quickly understand the subtle nuances of my life situation helped to insure that my needs and wants are met. Stacey is exceptionally effectual in pointing out and patiently explaining the benefits and liabilities of different options which I could seriously consider in the context of her being exceedingly knowledgeable and versed in state laws pertaining to estate plans. Thereupon, Stacey encouraged and allowed me to freely sort out my different options and my deciding and choosing which option to incorporate that would serve my best interest in updating my Estate Plan. Stacey Mealer's outstanding competency-expertise, grounded integrity, ethical practices and authentic dedicated commitment to primarily serving the best interest of her clients are admirable qualities in an attorney. Her confidence in not being easily intimidated in a legal arena is an important skill and trait for me since knowing that she can assertively and respectfully serve as an advocate on my behalf to protect my vested interests in the event such a situation should arise. In conclusion, I am so relieved, appreciative and deeply confident in having Stacey Mealer as my Estate Planning Attorney which led to the painless process in the successful completion of updating my Revocable Living Trust, Durable Power of Attorney, Pour Over Will, Health Care Directive and several banking and investment accounts beneficiary forms. I strongly recommend her exceptional expertise and competent services without qualification. Stacey's legal fees are very fair and reasonable.

The best job
I met with Stacey Mealer based on the recommendation of a close friend. She came to my house & I was quickly convinced that she was exactly the person that I wanted to handle my legal matters. She is very personable and comfortable to work with. Her knowledge of the law is deep and she has the ability to explain complex things in a way that is easily understood. Her attention to detail and preparedness is top rate. The rate she quoted was a fair price and didn't change even though my needs made changes in the work necessary. Beyond all of this, she is a great lawyer to work with. Her competence & reliability give reassurance that things are being done right, and she is always available to quickly answer questions or make changes in our process. Her personality is great and through our association the time spent meeting with her was always enjoyable. I confidently recommend her services, knowing that she will do as will for her future clients as she did for me.

Highly recommend
As a client of Stacey's in 2013 in Newport, Oregon, I requested a Revocable Living Trust Agreement. I was pleased with the document & Stacey's performance. She is friendly, personable, efficient, well organized & professional. I feel confident that she will be helpful to my son with my estate when needed.

Exellent Lawyer
Stacey Mealer helped my husband and I with our Revocable Trust. She was organized and trustworthy. We only wish we had come in contact with her sooner. It would have saved us a lot of money. She answered our questions in a timely manner. We appreciated her common sense approach to family dynamics and didn't sugar coat things. Her legal advise helped us with family court hearings that made a huge difference in our lives. We would highly recommend her to anyone that needs a family lawyer.

The perfect attorney for our needs
Stacey freely gave of her time to make a presentation on Estate Planning to our senior community. She was very patient and answered many questions. My husband and I were so impressed with her knowledge and friendliness that we had her draw up our Wills and a number of other documents we wanted. Stacey went out of her way to explain each of them and to make any changes we wanted. She did everything in a very timely and professional manner, and even came to our office (miles from her own) to get everything signed and notarized. We recommend Stacey to others on a regular basis.

Exceptional attorney, honest, intelligent, highly regarded
I live in a fairly small town. If an attorney were to be incompetent or rude, the word would spread quickly and that attorney would find few clients in that town. Stacey is highly regarded in this area. When I was first looking for a trust attorney, several people recommended her. For any attorney, I suppose there will always be a couple clients who aren’t pleased for one reason or another. The attorney’s job is complicated and many decisions need to be made – this leaves room for disgruntlement for some when others might have been pleased. When my senior center members also recommended Stacey, I called her. She came to my house for a two hour visit, free of charge. I appreciated the feeling of confidentiality in my own home. We discussed my trust needs, which were lengthy, and then Stacey made suggestions. She then left it up to me whether to hire her, no strings attached. My trust took several months to complete as it was complicated. I also hired Stacey to set up my Advance Directive and Power of Attorney. I found Stacey to be timely, extremely intelligent, and kind. Stacey always responded to my calls and emails quickly. She was considerate of my needs and was willing to accommodate me with all the changes I made to the trust as we worked through the details. At the beginning, she quoted me a very reasonable price for the package of work she would do, and never charged more even though I made many changes. Stacey is willing to help with any future needs I may have, small items she doesn’t even charge for. I feel fortunate to have found such a capable attorney who genuinely cares for her clients.

Exceptional Trust Attorney
We fortunately found Stacey Mealer four years ago, she worked with us to create our Revocable Trust. And, Stacey has stayed with us through needed updates and reviews as our life changes.

She clearly and quickly responds to questions, stays in touch with us and meets with us at our home, and has helpful ideas and covers options. We highly recommend her.

Great Attorney
Was given Stacey's name by my financial company when I had questions about Estate Planning. She offered to meet me at my home which was very convenient since my 80 year old mom and 90 year old aunt also needed some items taken care of. She was very knowledgeable and a delightful person as well. I now have my trust and a greater understanding of it as well now. I am confident now that my affairs are in order when I pass. We have referred her to friends and they too were very pleased with her services.

Wonderful Lawyer
Stacey handled a case for my sister and I that involved family property. It was a very uncomfortable situation for us. However, Stacey made us very comfortable. Stacey handled our case with expertise, honesty, integrity, kept us informed, and put our minds at ease knowing that she was taking care of us. I would highly recommend Stacey D Mealer.

Stacey D Mealer is a blessing
You will never find a better lawyer than Stacey D. Mealer. She is highly knowledgeable, extremely trustworthy, very easy to talk to and understand, and she kept me up to date on all that was going on or would eventually happen with my case. My father passed and he had no will. I found out the hard way that my loving and wonderful family is the same as many other families who change after a loved one dies - not always truthful or trustworthy. The old 'family handshake' is not what it used to be. Stacey helped me get through my situation and left me feeling a better person knowing that I have done what my father would have wanted me to do. I am very blessed to have found Stacey and you will be too.

Exceeded Expectations
Stacey went above and beyond by bringing her practice to my family's home. She was caring and kind but also knowledge. She was able to ensure my father's final wishes were followed through her legal assistance. She answered questions as needed and was clear when explaining our options. I recommend her to family and friends and will continue using her services in the future.

Excellent lawyer and friend!
Stacey has been my lawyer since my husband died of cancer in 2009. I would have been lost without her guidance and caring. She got me through a very distraught time. Stacey continues to be my lawyer and always will be.

Stacey helped my wife and I write wills, apply to Medicare assistance for my mother, and write a sales agreement for our house. In all matters Stacey provided informed advice, prompt responses, and successful end-products. She was very pleasant and listened to our needs. She helped us achieve what we wanted. Stacey was always available to answer questions via email and kept in close contact when necessary.

good attorney
last year set up estate as wife was needing to go to memory care. As her condition deteriorated very quickly, Stacey was able and willing to help with the many details involved. Needed to get an emergency guardianship, helped get thru county mental system. After 8 months is still helping as wife has very unusual dementia and alzheimers conditions together. Don't know what would have done trying do all of the legal papers myself. And has answered the many questions in reasonable time.
