"Motivations for Charitable Giving --- Simple Estate Tax Planning"

For over 35 years, Steven Bennett has offered clients efficient, practical solutions to their business, real estate, and estate planning needs. One of his greatest skills is achieving clients' objectives and managing their expectations through frequent and straight-forward communication. In his estate planning practice, Steve regularly helps create estate plans tailored to client objectives, and reviews existing estate plans to ensure they are up-to-date with state and federal tax laws, applicable state laws, and evolving family structures and goals. He represents singles and couples (and particularly high net-worth clients)with wills, trusts, probate, tax planning, asset transfers and ownership analysis, estate and trust litigation.Steve is on the Client Security Fund Committee operated by the Oregon State Bar, and served as Chairman in 2013. The Committee reviews and processes claims by clients located throughout Oregon who were the victims of lawyer dishonesty. His role on the Committee has broadened his perspective of client needs and the ways in which those needs can be met.
