Cassandra L. Morin, Esq.

Cassandra primarily practices in estate planning with particular attention to the disposition of pets and/or other animal dependents. Even if it is not the wish of the owner, pets often end up in shelters upon their owner’s death, and with animal shelters closer to reaching maximum capacity, she emphasizes planning for the care of pets/animals in each client’s estate plan. If you are looking for an attorney who understands that pets are a part of the family, you are in the right place.

 

She has worked in estate planning and probate for many years – long before she became an attorney – so she understands that it can be difficult to discuss, or even think about, what should happen upon one’s death. To make it easier, she explains the probate process in Maine in natural English to remove some or all of the confusion, fear, and uncertainty associated with it. Because she was a paralegal before she was an attorney, she has an in-depth understanding of the processes associated with estate planning and probate administration in Maine, and she uses this knowledge to create a comprehensive plan for each client such that much of the “what if”s are accounted for by the time clients are ready to finalize their documents. 

 

Cassandra’s practice is focused on estate planning, trusts, probate administration, and real estate transactions. She is also accepting animal law cases on a case-by-case basis, including veterinary malpractice cases, ownership/custody disputes, and legal issues concerning Maine wildlife.

 

When she is not in the office, Cassandra spends her time playing video games, volunteering at animal shelters and wildlife rehabilitation centers, working on various writing projects, practicing Japanese, swimming, and birdwatching. She lives in Bowdoinham with her husband and pets.
