About Will Van Vactor
Will Van Vactor has practiced law in Oregon for almost a decade. From working for a Portland-based firm with a satellite office in Prineville to working at a small local firm in Bend, Will has experience serving clients throughout Oregon.
Will focuses on land use because of the unique intersection of policy and law. Oregon's progressive land use system has led to the preservation of valuable resources across the state, but it also poses challenges for property owners and developers. It can also create problems for neighboring property owners with concerns about new development next door. Will is passionate about finding solutions to these challenging problems.
Will understands the importance of helping clients identify their needs and advocating on behalf of his clients' positions. He became a lawyer because he wanted to help people. When a client hires him, Will takes his job as their lawyer seriously and will work tirelessly to help his clients accomplish their goals.
Firm Values: Van Vactor Law LLC
Client Service: Will puts his clients first. Many people dread hiring a lawyer. It doesn't need to be that way. By giving instant access to case information through a client portal, being responsive to client questions and concerns, collaborating with his clients, and using technology to connect and provide legal services, Will seeks to provide a positive client experience.
Sustainability: Will's practice relies heavily on cloud computing. Cloud computing saves energy, materials, time, and waste. From its inception, Van Vactor Law LLC made a commitment to being paperless. This cuts down on storage fees, reduces material requirements, and increases efficiency and convenience.
Community Involvement: Will values community involvement. In the past, Will has volunteered as a planning commissioner in both Redmond and Prineville. Currently, he is volunteering as a co-facilitator for the Upper Deschutes Advisory Group through Community Solutions of Central Oregon. Will was recently appointed to the Board of Directors for Community Solutions. He also welcomes the right type of pro-bono case that lets him give back to his community.
Van Vactor Law LLC is based in Bend, Oregon. However, it serves the entire state of Oregon, including:
Thanks to today's technology, Will can provide legal services across the entire state. With email, video conferencing, and phones, communication between Will and his clients is instantaneous and convenient, without the need for a brick and mortar office that restricts his practice to one geographic area.
That said, Will likes meeting clients face-to-face. When wanted, Will has access to a private conference room in Bend, Oregon, and other locations throughout the state.
