We are excited to announce that Myatt & Bell, P.C. attorney John Boylston has been selected to the Super Lawyers 2014 Oregon Rising Stars list for Estate Planning and Probate. Each year, no more than 2.5 percent of the lawyers in the state are selected by the research team at Super Lawyers to receive this honor.

Super Lawyers, a Thomson Reuters company, is a rating service of outstanding lawyers from more than 70 practice areas who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. The annual selections are made using a patented multiphase process that includes a statewide survey of lawyers, an independent research evaluation of candidates and peer reviews by practice area. The result is a credible, comprehensive and diverse listing of exceptional attorneys.

John joined Myatt & Bell, P.C. in July 2013, after spending the first seven years of his career working for large national law firms.  When asked why he thinks he made this list, John said, “I believe in always being responsive, straight forward, and transparent with our firm’s clients in every aspect of our work together.  Further, I believe that our clients should not have to pay an additional fee for the time it takes an attorney to explain what he or she is doing for the client; that should be included in the initial fee.  To achieve these values, I provide as many services as possible on a flat-fee basis so that clients are aware of the costs before they sign-up for anything.  Then, once they have hired Myatt & Bell, our clients can spend as much time as they need calling me, meeting with me, and asking questions until they are completely comfortable with the work that we are doing together, without being afraid of what the final cost might be.  Additionally, I believe that one of the most important things I can do for my clients is listen. I spend a lot of time just listening to clients tell me about their families, their successes, and their struggles.”

John’s practice primarily consists of working with families and small businesses.  He helps families and businesses create estate and succession plans that best meet each family’s and business’s unique needs.  Additionally, John uses his litigation background to recover money from those who have taken advantage of elderly or incapacitated individuals.  Finally, John helps families navigate the often difficult process of probate and trust administration.  John can be contacted at JohnB@myattandbell.com, 503-641-6262, or you contact Myatt & Bell, here.

Myatt & Bell, P.C. exists because of our belief in families.  We believe in building up, strengthening, preserving and protecting families through the generations.  The incapacity of a loved one; the lack of an estate or business succession plan; the passing of family member; a family fight over inheritance:  These circumstances commonly disrupt and even destroy families, businesses, and relationships. It does not have to be that way and we are passionate about helping families navigate these challenges in ways that bring their family together.  Learn more about our firm here.
