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.
