I am a professional fiduciary in Central Oregon and have been working in the legal community here for over 28 years. I have worked with Collin on several probate and guardianship/conservatorship matters. He is always responsive to my questions and highly effective in getting the results I need for my business. He is also just an all-around good person! I highly recommend him for his legal services!
I have been a client of Collin's for over a year. I am 74 years old and he has treated me so kindly and worked so hard to take care of me. When my abusive daughter and her husband tried to fight restraining orders we got against them we had to do a three-day trial to keep them in place and Collin won! I am also disabled and don't walk so well and when I got COVID he called me to see how I was doing and told me he was worried about me! He is a wonderful lawyer and a wonderful person. I feel blessed that I found him!
"I have worked with Collin Edmonds regarding being my son's guardian and conservator. I am well pleased with his work. He is very professional and works with you. He keeps me informed at all times and I will continue using him in the future for all my son's needs. I'm so glad to have Collin, you will be too! Thank you again for all you have done!"
"I am from Hawaii and I worked with Collin on a probate matter in Oregon for my in-laws. Collin was very supportive, always in contact with us, easy to work with, and had very helpful, clear and understandable explanations. I highly recommend him and I would use him again."
"After our first child was born my spouse and I had the hard conversation about considering the future wellbeing of our daughter and any other children. It’s a hard conversation to contemplate and so we sought out assistance for an estate plan. Collin is caring, considerate and was patient with our questions and needs. His guidance and counsel were greatly appreciated and we find comfort knowing that our children's futures are aligned with our wishes."
"When my wife and I realized it would be smart to have our estate planning established, we weren't exactly sure how the process worked but we knew we should start with a lawyer. Luckily we found Collin because he walked us through every step and did a great job of explaining things. Thanks Collin!"
Has aging or a disability affected your loved one’s ability to care for themselves? Conservatorships and guardianships can give you the authority to manage someone’s care and finances when they are unable to.
Wills, trusts, power of attorney and other estate planning tools can help you plan ahead to ensure your assets are handled the way you intend them to be in life and afterwards.
Were you appointed an executor/personal representative? Collin can guide you through the nuanced, and oftentimes overwhelming, job of administering someone’s estate for them.
