About Elin Severson

My practice focuses on estate planning, estate administration, guardianships, and conservatorships. I am passionate about serving others.  I enjoy helping families plan and prepare for the future with an estate plan that reflects their values and goals.  I support families going through difficult times, such as when a loved one has passed away or can no longer live independently, by helping them navigate the court processes efficiently.  


I grew up in the Pacific Northwest and have called Portland, Oregon, home for over 15 years.  I earned my bachelor’s degree in Hispanic Studies from Lewis & Clark College, where I graduated cum laude and was elected to Phi Beta Kappa.  In the years between undergrad and law school I trained Quarter Horses professionally. 


While at Willamette University College of Law, I was the managing editor of the Willamette Journal of International Law and Dispute Resolution and a member of the Willamette Law Review and Willamette Law Online.  I graduated cum laude and in the top 15% of my class.


In my spare time, I enjoy riding horses, hiking, and spending time with family, friends, and my German Shepherd.
