Scottsdale Estate Planning Lawyer



Call: (480) 751-5165

Estate planning is necessary if you want to control the terms of the disposition of your assets and ensure the financial stability of your heirs.  In many situations, the only way to control who gets what and when is to have documents prepared that specifically state your wishes.  If you fail to prepare estate planning documents, such as a will or living trust, the decision about who will inherit your estate when you pass will be made by the laws of the state in which you reside.


Mr. Oenning has been working with clients on their estates for almost 20 years, the last 14 years of which have been as an attorney.  He works with clients throughout Arizona on a broad range of estate planning matters, including but not limited to the drafting of the following documents and the performance of the following services:


  • Wills
  • Living Trusts
  • Various Revocable and Irrevocable Trusts
  • Irrevocable Life Insurance Trusts
  • Durable Powers of Attorney
  • Medical Powers of Attorney
  • Living Wills
  • Gift and tax planning strategies for high net worth individuals
  • Asset Protection
  • Guardianship issues for minor children
  • Probate and Trust Administration


Mr. Oenning uses several types of living trusts dependent on client circumstances and desired flexibility.  In addition, his background as a CPA gives him a unique perspective on tax planning and wealth preservation in the estate planning context while drafting estate planning documents.  Mr. Oenning does not use "canned" form documents, instead, he customizes and creates his estate planning documents to fit each client's specific needs and situation.


At Oenning Law Office, PLLC, your estate planning documents will be drafted and prepared by an experienced attorney with a background in taxation, not a paralegal, legal secretary, or certified document preparer with limited experience and training.
