Estate and Trust Litigation
Cartwright Baer Johansson PC specializes in estate and trust litigation. Such matters include the prosecution and defense of trust and will contests and disputes related to the administration of trusts and estates.
Guardianships and Conservatorships
Sometimes people reach a point in their lives where they are unable to care for themselves financially, physically, or both. This may be the result of aging, a tragic accident, or medical condition. When appropriate, Oregon law allows the appointment of a conservator (to assist the person with their finances) and/or a guardian (to ensure that the individual's health and welfare needs are met).
Cartwright Baer Johansson PC can help establish a conservatorship or guardianship, or alternatively, assist in objecting to the appointment of a guardian and/or conservator. If a guardianship or conservatorship is established, Cartwright Baer Johansson PC can represent the fiduciary in the guardianship and/or conservatorship.
Financial Abuse of Vulnerable Persons Claims
People who are vulnerable due to age or disability are often victims of financial exploitation, sometimes by family members as well as strangers. The Oregon Legislature has provided powerful statutory tools to remedy financial abuse, and Cartwright Baer Johansson PC has successfully represented victims of financial abuse and their fiduciaries in abuse claims. We also defend people wrongly accused of financial abuse.
