Legal Outreach

Stahancyk, Kent & Hook attorneys prioritize legal outreach as part of our commitment to give back to the communities in which we do business. Through various legal organizations and nonprofits, our attorneys donate time and resources to help the Oregon and Southwest Washington communities receive the legal guidance that they need.

In 2014, we were honored to receive the Communitas Award for ProBono legal work for our work on Wills for Heroes in Prineville, OR.  Our firm donated time and expertise to help Military Veterans, Police, Firefighters and other first responders, complete basic wills, power of attorneys and Oregon advance medical directives.

Shareholders and attorneys also give lectures on a variety of legal-related topics. Below, find a list of the legal outreach opportunities our firm has taken.
