Jonathan P. Bascalmasi
Jonathan P. Bacsalmasi is an attorney at Collier Law focusing on Estate Planning, Medicaid Planning, Probate, and Trust Administration Matters. He guides clients through the estate planning process to ensure their affairs and long-term goals are in order while also accounting for problematic family dynamics. In probate and trust administration matters, he assists clients and families through the transition period of settling a loved one’s estate.
Jonathan may have grown up in Arizona, but he is now happy to call Oregon home. Jonathan’s affection for the Pacific Northwest began at a young age with his family’s annual trips to their cabin on the Oregon coast. After graduating from the University of Arizona with a Bachelor of Science in Psychology, Jonathan relocated to the Pacific Northwest to attend Willamette University College of Law with intentions of placing permanent roots in Oregon.
Jonathan is passionate about working in collaboration with clients to create an estate plan that anticipates and protects their current needs, while also protecting family assets for future generations.
Jonathan currently lives in Portland, dividing his time between both Salem and Portland office locations. His presence in Portland allows him to better serve our clients based in the Portland area. In his free time, he enjoys sports, hiking, reading, and traveling to visit family throughout the West Coast.
