Our family was referred to Collier Law from a previous client. We appointed Stephanie Palmblad as our attorney and we couldn’t be more satisfied with the work she has done for us in the guardianship/conservatorship field. Ms. Palmblad has been professional, calm, knowledgeable and supportive in our individual situation. It has been proven to us that she obviously values her client’s needs. I will certainly refer Stephanie to anyone who is looking for an attorney with high integrity without any hesitation.
Ryan has handled several matters for me. He demonstrates great expertise in his field, presenting all sides and options. I recommend Ryan to anyone with estate planning needs. Top qualities: Great Results, Expert, High Integrity
Michelle , Local Attorney
Stephanie was such an excellent lawyer to deal with. Her warm smile and welcoming manner was accompanied by a keen mind. She easily put us at ease, made us feel like our legal matters were very important to her, answered every question or concern we had, and in the end accomplished the Trust updating we needed.

Living Trusts

A living trust, also referred to as a revocable living trust, is a flexible and widely used estate planning tool. A revocable living trust is a written agreement that appoints a trustee to manage the property held by the trust. Trusts generally avoid the probate court altogether.

The advantages of a revocable living trust are many.



When a person dies they almost always leave behind property and debts.  A court will supervise the transfer of a deceased person’s property after the payment of their debts. That court supervised process is called probate. A lawyer or attorney should be hired by the proposed personal representative or executor to assist with probate court documents.

Trust Administration

A Successor Trustee is named in the Trust to manage someone’s affairs when they are unable to do so themselves. A Trustee must still follow strict guidelines set forth in the Trust document and Oregon State law.
Successor trustees often lack the time, resources or knowledge to personally administer the trust, and therefore may call upon legal, accounting and investment professionals for assistance. Our lawyers and staff help successor trustees navigate the complexities of trust administration.
