Article

Miller Nash Graham & Dunn LLP has announced the promotion of Kay Abramowitz and June Wiyrick Flores to partner. Both attorneys are part of the firm’s trusts and estates practice and have demonstrated excellence and dedication in helping clients plan for and protect their personal and their families’ assets. The duo has strategically worked together for over ten years, providing clients with an option for an estate planning attorney that aligns with their needs and, for some, an attorney who matches their generation.

Abramowitz has over 30 years of experience in trusts, estates and business law. She specializes in providing advice to family-owned businesses, often advising on succession planning to help smoothly transition businesses to the next generation, or in helping businesses transition their profits to philanthropic causes. Abramowitz is active in the Portland community and currently serves on the board of the Portland Opera, Meals on Wheels People, and the University Club of Portland. She started working with Wiyrick Flores in 2004, when the latter was an associate. The two worked well together, and both agreed to adopt a multigenerational planning approach to their practice that mirrored the advice they were giving to their clients. That led Abramowitz and Wiyrick Flores to work closely together in helping clients with their taxable estates, which will continue to be their approach through all transitions in their practice.

Wiyrick Flores works with individuals, families and closely held businesses to develop and implement their personal and business succession strategies. She assists fiduciaries and beneficiaries in estate, probate and trust administration. Wiyrick Flores also counsels tax-exempt and charitable organizations with formation, governance and operations matters. She is highly engaged in the community and participates on several boards, including the Randall Children’s Hospital Foundation, the Estate Planning Council of Portland, the OSU Austin Family Business Program and the Portland Tax Forum. She is listed in Oregon Super Lawyers and Best Lawyers in America.

Both Abramowitz and Wiyrick Flores joined Miller Nash Graham & Dunn in 2014.
