One of the most critical (and often overlooked) tasks for family-owned farms, ranches, and businesses is developing an effective strategy to ensure that it transitions effectively and efficiently.
There are many issues facing Oregon families when it comes to developing an estate plan. Taxes, legal costs, family relationships, and limited liquidity, to name a few, are common yet complicated challenges.
Riley Makin takes an active part in his family’s cattle ranch and understands the issues facing rural Oregonians. Let us work with you to develop a strategy that manages those challenges and plans for the next generation. Whether you are growing crops, running livestock, or operating a business (or a combination of the three) having your estate plan in place will preserve and protect your operation and ensure that it transitions on your terms.
“An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”
― Benjamin Franklin
Why we plan…
When a loved one passes away, time should be spent grieving and remembering them. Your estate plan reduces the burden and stress on your family members and loved ones, allowing them to spend time focusing on the family rather than on administration issues.
An estate plan protects your legacy and allows it to be passed in the manner you determine. You can clearly establish your final wishes and prevent family conflicts from arising. Having your estate plan in place may reduce costs associated with probate administration, attorney fees, and taxes.
