An Empowered Legal Experience

Achieve Your Goals With Smart Legal Strategies

We get it. Talking about children, money, family issues, death and taxes is never easy – but it is essential. You know it’s important. Yet, you may have been putting this meeting off for a while.

Fortunately, we make it easy to get your estate plans and legal affairs in order. Here’s what you can expect when you work with Skinner Law – one of Portland’s most accessible and client-friendly legal firms:

  • Great listening. Tell us your story – where you’ve been, where you’re going, what scares you, what warms your heart and what makes your heart beat faster.
  • No blame. We don’t care if you have a scary tax situation, a messy family dynamic, unclear business direction or if you’ve never set up a will. Whatever you’re facing, we are here to help.
  • No jargon. We communicate in plain English. We draft documents and letters that are to the point and readable. We believe that simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.
  • Prioritization. We will prioritize documents and legal discussions based on relevance. Too much information can cause you to miss the most important legal information.
  • Timely service. We strive to be prompt and responsive.
  • Questions welcome. We encourage you to thoroughly question everything. We want you to feel that your questions have been answered fully.
  • Collaboration. We are happy to work with your other advisers, including accountants, financial planners, and bankers. We believe in teamwork!
  • Efficient use of technology. We use technology to operate efficiently and in a paperless environment when it makes sense. This is good for both our clients and the environment.
  • Empowerment. You will be informed and engaged every step of the way. Together, we will use the law as a tool in helping you achieve your goals.
