Understanding Probate In Oregon

It is a common misconception that you do not have to go through probate if you have a will. In Oregon, that is not necessarily the case. The probate process depends on the dollar amount of the estate. Factors such as having a will or trust can certainly affect probate administration, but do not necessarily exclude an estate from probate.

To make this process as seamless as possible, you need an experienced probate lawyer to be your advocate. Richard Fowlks is compassionate when working with clients yet assertive when resolving legal matters. He recognizes the challenges that families and executors face when disputes are present or issues arise, and he will stick by you until your case is completed.

    Not sure who 'Dominic' was talking about, but it isn't my attorney Rick Fowlks. Rick Fowlks has represented me for the past several years during a particularly difficult and toxic divorce case that required expert witnesses and visitation modifications. Rick has been kind, compassionate, and reassuring during one of the worst times of my life. What makes Rick stand out from other attorneys is his ethics - most are pretty soft in that category. His ability to manage and coordinate a positive outcome during depositions, mediations, and be supportive and practical during trials, and hearings. If you are looking for an attorney that will guide and protect you and your children in a toxic, scorched-earth divorce - this is the attorney you need. He has expertise in all facets of family law, and I have recommended him to both business and personal contacts that I know - Dennie
