|Paula Walker opens Welches law office posted on 01/02/2018|
Paula Walker had a slogan through her years as a project
management process consultant: she didn’t want to make a better living, she
wanted to make living better. Now, Walker will bring that attitude to her new
venture, the Confluence Law Center in Welches offering estate planning, wills
and trusts as its primary focus.
“I was really drawn to do something for people, for society,
for nature, all of that,” Walker said. “Law seemed like a way that I could have
a more immediate effect.”
Walker, who came to the mountain in her teens and has lived
here since, noted that her past work should serve her well in her newest
endeavor, including experience in contracts, staffing and vendors, plus working
with everything from governments and nonprofits to corporations both large and
small. She added that her skill set helps bridge the gap between things that
are highly technical, like the law, and something more amorphous, such as
broader goals for estate planning.
“I bring a long history of work in the business world in
numerous capacities,” she said. “This is a position that a lot of people don’t
have the knowledge of and need help with, especially with estate planning.”
Walker also noted that the process of estate planning is a
partnership, where the trusts and wills she helps craft will put into effect
the particular goals and objectives of each client, including their businesses,
any organizations they want to support and conferring healthcare and financial
Walker added that she has a keen interest in the environment
and appreciates the natural beauty of the Mount Hood area.
“The Welches area is just so gorgeous,” she said.
The Confluence Law Center will celebrate with an open house
from 3-7 p.m. Friday, Jan. 26, at 62441 E. Welches Road (in the Salmon River
Professional Center). Regular business hours will be from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Monday through Friday, with appointments scheduled on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Complimentary consultations are available.
