There are few estate attorneys in this country who can claim a solid foundation in money management, and Ryan Collier is one of them.
Ryan earned his securities license right out of college and worked in his mother’s investment firm where he helped clients plan their retirement and map out their estate plans for their business and family.
Now principal of Collier Law in Salem, Ryan combines his knowledge of the law with a keen financial background to develop estate plans for his clients that ensure the proper transfer of assets to their loved ones, enable them to support the charities they care about and pass on their values so their legacy can continue for generations to come.
Before starting his own practice in 2008, Ryan was a partner at Clark Lindauer Fetherston, where he worked with business owners and their families helping to develop succession plans and training the families to take over the business. While there, he was extensively involved in handling wills, trusts and probate for clients.
A graduate of the University of Puget Sound and Willamette College of Law, Ryan now serves as an adjunct professor of law at Willamette teaching will and trust drafting. He is rated by local attorneys and judges as AV© Preeminent™ for his knowledge and experience in trusts and estates – the highest rating given by Martindale-Hubbell.
Ryan is past president of the Marion County Bar Association where he also received the Carson Award for Outstanding Service to the Bar.
