About Meredith Williamson

Founder and Attorney at Law

Meredith L. Williamson began NW Estate Law, LLC with a mission of creating a law firm where people feel welcome and heard.  She believes people are best served when they are free to laugh, cry, and share their fear, struggle, and joy.  She wants her clients to understand their options and feel comfortable to ask questions.  

With client engagement and comfort in mind, she offers flat rates in long-term care, Medicaid, and estate planning.  This way clients do not feel rushed by the clock or feel they cannot take the time to ask questions.  Initial contacts in person, over the phone, or over Zoom based on client’s preference and location.  Home visits are also made available to people who need them.

Meredith graduated from University of Oregon with a major in Psychology and a minor in business administration.  She then attended the University of San Diego School of Law – a choice she made due to their Child Advocacy Clinic.  After graduating law school in 2002, Meredith worked for both medium and small firms where she focused on litigation.  Upon returning to Oregon, she was in-house counsel, co-owner, and manager of a family company that focused on connecting older Oregonians with appropriate housing and care services.  It is in this position she saw the pitfalls of not having an appropriate and well-crafted estate plan in place and realized there was a need in the community for an attorney with her skills and caring approach. 

Meredith has a passion for education and equipping others with knowledge both personally and professionally.  You can find her featured on LegalLinks and OSBtv (through the Oregon State Bar), and legal editor with the national site SeniorList

Meredith is licensed in three states including: the Oregon State Bar (active/good standing), California State Bar (inactive/good standing), and Washington State Bar (active/good standing) with offices to serve clients in Oregon and Washington.

Meredith is on the Advance Directive Advisory Committee, a founding member of the Oregon Chapter of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys, and Member at Large of the Oregon State Bar Elder Law Section.

We used Meredith for our estate planning and cohabitation contract recently after we bought a house. She was very responsive, very Covid aware/safe and lovely to work with.

We had a great experience working with Meredith when putting together our estate planning documentation. She was always professional and courteous, explaining legal concepts and terminology in a way that was straightforward for us to understand. Meredith was responsive and open to answering our questions so we could fully evaluate different options. She provided sound recommendations for us to consider based on our current position and point in life. Even given the gravity and importance of the estate planning process, Meredith put us at ease and made us feel comfortable coming to decisions and documenting outcomes that work best for us. We intend to work with Meredith for future needs that we may have, and would highly recommend working with her to others.
