School’s Out, Estate Planning is In

School’s Out, Estate Planning is In

If summer vacation has you hyped, you’re not alone. After two straight years of travel restrictions, it is (finally) your time to shine. But if your packing list reads something like: Swimsuit? Check. Sunscreen? Check. Estate plan? ...well, it’s probably time to pay your estate planning attorney a quick visit so you can truly indulge in that poolside mojito.

An Easter Egg Hunt Isn’t All It's Cracked Up To Be

You did it. You finally created a will, and oh, what a relief! You answered life’s biggest questions given your current life circumstances, and you feel at peace. Good job adulting! We applaud you. Now for the bad news: the job is not quite complete. The next decision you’ll need to make is where you are going to store your will, and it’s not as straightforward as one might think.

Time MARCHes On

We’ve survived two years of a global pandemic, and with spring on the horizon, life feels hopeful again. With a renewed focus on family, friends, and the things that matter most to us, we are ready to dive back into life in a big way – celebrations, gatherings, and travel. Before throwing caution to the wind, I encourage each of us to plan for the uncertainties that lie ahead. While we navigate economic and political uncertainty, there has never been a better time to have an estate plan than now.

Barbur Law reveals renovated Tillamook office

‘We are established now, and we can serve you’

TILLAMOOK — Scott Barbur began offering his estate planning services in Tillamook in 2020 with few expectations for what the move would mean for his private law practice. Now, almost 18 months later, he’s starting the “next chapter,” for Barbur Law with the celebration of a newly renovated office space for his firm’s second office — among many other significant milestones.

A public ribbon-cutting ceremony to reveal the updated Barbur Law Tillamook office is scheduled for 8:30 a.m. Tuesday, February 8 at the office at 1000 N. Main Ave., Ste. 7. Community members are invited to attend.

Starting 2022 With A Bang

With each new year comes a fresh start — a new beginning and 365 days of endless possibility. Just a few weeks into 2022, I am excited to share what we’ve already been up to as a firm. It is safe to say that here at Barbur Law, we are starting 2022 with a bang!

Effective January 1st, Laura Laskey was promoted to Partner. Laura has been a huge asset to the firm working out of our Tillamook office, and I can’t say enough wonderful things about her. With Laura, our clients know that they are in very capable hands. As a team, we all appreciate Laura’s dedication to the legal industry and to her community. I look forward to watching her soar to new heights in her well-deserved new role with the firm. Please join me in congratulating her.

But wait, there is more exciting news out of Tillamook!

A Thankful Year

“Be present in all things, and thankful for all things.”
— Maya Angelou

At this time last year, most people couldn’t believe we were expanding our firm amidst a global pandemic. It seemed risky, and yet, ‘no risk, no reward,’ so full steam ahead we trudged.
As our marketing director, I had a front-row seat and a helping hand in everything that went on behind the scenes. We started out with a search for a second attorney, hopeful that we would find someone passionate about estate planning. The stars aligned. We hired associate attorney, Laura Laskey, and legal assistant, Corinne Kelly, to be the faces of our new Tillamook office. (And what a dynamic duo they have proven to be!).
