Retirement Announcement: After 33 years of providing legal services to the Hillsboro community, I am retiring from the private practice of law. It has been an honor to represent such great clientele for the past 33 years, and I thank all of my clients for the trust you have put in me and my firm during this time.

Building a Trust in Hillsboro

Let our Estate Planning Attorneys Guide You

Using a trust can help your beneficiaries avoid probate and some of the taxes they would face if those assets were placed in a simple will. For this reason, individuals with certain assets are often advised to establish a trust rather than a will. It is possible to draw up a will for certain items, and a trust for others.

Our Hillsboro estate planning attorneys are experienced and well-versed in the Oregon state laws governing trusts and wills. Give your descendants an easy transfer of assets by partnering with Eisenstein Law Office, P.C.

Living Trusts Versus Testamentary Trusts

If you wish to have a trust established during your lifetime, our team can review your options for a living trust. Living trusts are an excellent option for those who wish to avoid probate. Your heirs gain access to their inheritance faster and will not have to deal with the added grief of court.

You have the option for two different types of living trusts:

  • Revocable trusts keep you in control of your assets.
  • Irrevocable trusts hand control of your assets over to your beneficiaries, but free the assets from certain taxes.

A testamentary trust is outlined within the will and does not go into effect until you pass. The testamentary trust still has to go through probate and is often recommended for individuals with small estates.

Honest & Thorough Guidance

If you do not have a large estate, a trust may not be the best option for you. Individuals with net worth that is less than $100,000 may be advised to create a will rather than establishing a trust. A variety of trusts are available to cater to your estate needs. Know the appropriate type of trust to establish with our help. With nearly 30 years of combined experience, you can rest assured knowing that our firm is prepared to handle even the most complex estate planning cases.

Our Testimonials

Hear From Our Happy Clients

  • "A 100% pleasant experience."
    Working with the professionals at Nachtigal, Eisenstein & Associates is a 100% pleasant experience. As an appraisal professional myself, I get to see the difference between efficient, credible operations, and ones that miss the mark.
    - Nathan B.
  • "Exceptional service."
    I have used this law firm twice, with exceptional service by Partner Scott Eisenstein. The office staff is helpful, and during my consultations, I gained really important insights into wills, eldercare, and in the most recent visit, helping me through a very complex real estate purchase. Their office is in the heart of Downtown Hillsboro, on the same corner lot as the Hillsboro Post Office with their own private lot for clients.

    We've used Nachtigal, Eisenstein & Assoc. several times over the last several years, both to setup our Living Trust and Will, as well as getting legal advice on setting up LLC's and our rental business. Scott handled the case smoothly, explained things clearly for a layperson and was readily available for questions before and after we received our documentation. My Wife Deborah and I highly recommend their Legal Services.

  • "They worked with us, as well as for us."
    We've used Nachtigal, Eisenstein & Assoc. for two needs: 1 - business issue, which they resolved quickly for us, and 2 - my parent's estate issues, which was a bit complicated. In the midst of the loss/grief during estate issues, Scott paid attention to all issues that were important to us. He and his staff were sincerely caring, and took care of the large and small details, making sure we understood everything along the way. They worked with us, as well as for us, in each of these matters.
