AREAS OF FOCUS
Karen’s practice encompasses estate planning, probate, trust administration, guardianships, conservatorships, and business succession planning.
She earned her bachelor’s degree from Oregon State University in Agriculture and Resource Economics and her law degree from Lewis and Clark Law School. She had a solo private practice for many years focused on estate planning, agricultural law, small business formation, and business succession planning. She closed her practice in 2020 to provide legal and admin services to a rapidly growing farm development and management company for three years. She then spent a short amount of time as a finance manager for a nonprofit before joining the estate planning group at The Reynolds Law Firm at the beginning of 2024.
Karen enjoys working with clients from all backgrounds and has significant experience in rural Oregon assisting landowners, land managers, farmers, and natural resource businesses. Her goal is to thoroughly communicate with her clients so that they understand their options and the documents that will carry out their vision.
She owns a farm with her husband that produces hazelnuts and pastures beef, as well as houses her horses. When she’s not working, she likes to hike, horseback ride, travel, cook, read, and crochet.
