Expert Advice. Personable Service.

Ginger SkinnerGinger Skinner enjoys providing expert advice and personable service to her clients to address their estate planning and administration legal needs. With a Master of Laws (LL.M) in taxation, Ginger is uniquely capable of providing families with tax-sensitive estate planning and administration. She often works with her clients’ advisors such as financial planners and accountants.

Ginger operates with a down-to-earth, no jargon style that clients find quite refreshing. “I’m passionate about explaining sophisticated tax concepts in simple terms, and drafting clear documents that can be understood by everyone – not just those in the legal profession,” she says.

She founded Skinner Law, PC with the goal of helping Oregon families create advantageous estate and succession strategies, ultimately achieving greater harmony in family relationships. “There’s nothing more rewarding than helping a family prevent discord and multigenerational conflict,” she says. She also specializes in international estate planning law and likes the complexity of this area of law.

Prior to launching her own firm, Ginger served as general counsel for a large family-owned Oregon business. She gained great insight from this experience on the issues and challenges family-owned businesses face day-to-day.
