Kay attended the University of Oregon School of Law.

Kay has 20+ years' experience as an attorney. For her, the firm has everything she wants - long-standing community roots, good clients, and attorneys with a team mentality who work to assist their clients in the best possible way.

Kay's areas of expertise include estate planning, estate administration, elder law, and business law. In her own words, kay identifies the one problem she is best at solving for her clients as "the legal ones. Clients will come in with a bundle of issues. I assist in separating legal issues from non-legal ones, and then focus on resolutions pertaining to the legal issues. My clients say they enjoy working with me. My insight in the law and how it pertains to them make their choices easier."

Kay is highly involved in her field and community. She is former chair of the Oregon State Bar Elder Law Executive Committee, and actively coordinates with the committee CLE (continuing legal education) hours to educate Oregon attorneys. She has been an active member of the Willamalane Park Foundation, a nonprofit that supports Willamalane Park and Recreation District.

When not at work or busy with volunteering, Kay enjoys spending time with her husband, kids, grandchildren and family, reading, watching movies, attending sporting events and walking her dogs.

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:

Comfort Level
- Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?

Credentials
- How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?

Cost
- How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?

City
- Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?

Want to check lawyer discipline?

It is always a good idea to research your lawyer prior to hiring. Every state has a disciplinary organization that monitors attorneys, their licenses, and consumer complaints. By researching lawyer discipline you can:

  • Ensure the attorney is currently licensed to practice in your state
  • Gain an understanding of his or her historical disciplinary record, if any.
  • Determine the seriousness of complaints/issues which could range from late bar fees to more serious issues requiring disciplinary action.
