David L. Carlson

I started practice in 1994 and for the last 19 years my practice has focused on helping people with their estates. Sometimes that means planning their estate or their trust and sometimes that means helping the family with a probate or trust after someone has passed away. It means protecting people though a guardianship, a conservatorship or stopping someone from abusing the vulnerable. It means helping people with their property and their businesses. My practice has included many things over the years, but this is what I enjoy the most.

Although I’ve lived in different places throughout the US I’m an Oregon native and wouldn’t live anywhere else. In my career I’ve been the Chair of the Oregon State Bar’s New Lawyers Division and the Bar’s Law Practice Management Committee. Currently I serve on the State Professional Responsibility Board for the Bar.
