Drafting Wills and Other Estate Planning Tools

At the Law Office of Todd R. Worthley, we draft and re-work basic wills and other essential documents — often as part of our service to men and women coping with divorce or other family law matters. If you need a new will — whether you are a young couple with a new baby or a middle-aged adult planning for your children — we can help ensure your wishes are communicated clearly and accurately.

Contact our law office in Portland, Oregon, to discuss your estate planning needs with an experienced attorney.

Who Should Get a Will?

The short answer is: everyone.

A common misconception is that wills are only for the middle-aged or elderly with extensive assets to pass down to their loved ones. The reality is everyone can benefit from having a will. A will can designate a caretaker for a young child or a beneficiary for a treasured collector's car. Without a will, the state will make these important decisions for the deceased. If you want control over who receives your assets, real estate, or who will take care of your children upon your death, we will sit down with you to discuss your wishes and draft a basic will that meets your needs.
