Our Story

We believe that everyone should have access to legal services, and that estate planning is too important to be prohibitively expensive.

Everyday Legal LLC was created to help neighbors and friends: people who didn’t normally use legal services, people who worked regular jobs and couldn’t afford expensive legal bills.

Lives being busy, and money being tight shouldn’t prevent people from planning for their families. Everyday Legal is Estate Planning for Everyday People.

Fantastic Estate Planning Made Easy!

Greg was absolutely great to work with, we are very pleased with the final Estate planning documents we have a result. Greg has a lot of experience and thus the know-how to make what could be a complicated process actually very user friendly. We have a special needs son and a few other complex family situations that needed to be addressed in our documents, Greg was patient and thorough in working with these issues. I would highly recommend Greg's services and wouldn't hesitate to go back to him in the future. “ — Michelle

 

The most thoughtful lawyer & easiest process to get your will done

We just signed our will, living will, power of attorney, etc., with Greg at our dining room table this fall 2018. I have to say Greg was the most helpful, thoughtful, and responsive lawyer we ever could have imagined working with.

Greg made the entire process super easy. He answered every one of our questions and addressed every concern we might have had. He was respectful, a great and concise communicator, and a wonderful listener. He’s especially gifted at explaining legal concepts in plain English which is really helpful.

He allowed us to think about ideas and what we wanted to write in our will – but he also made good suggestions that we never would have come up with ourselves. Although we delayed our own process several times, Greg would check-in with us and see if he could help us think something through.

If he practiced law in Oregon, where I'm from originally, I would book him for my Mom and family in a second. Hire this guy! And honestly, just get your will done. Check it off the list. You’ll feel better when you do.

I would wholeheartedly recommend Greg’s legal services in a heartbeat. He’s also just a really lovely and fun guy to talk with.” — Scott
