Ginger Skinner enjoys providing expert advice and personable service to her clients to address their personal and corporate legal needs. With a Master of Laws (LL.M) in taxation, Ginger is uniquely capable of providing families and businesses with tax-sensitive estate planning and administration. She often works with her clients’ advisors such as financial planners and accountants.


Ginger operates with a down-to-earth, no jargon style that clients find quite refreshing. “I’m passionate about explaining sophisticated tax concepts in simple terms, and drafting clear documents that can be understood by everyone – not just those in the legal profession,” she says.


She founded Skinner Law, PC with the goal of helping Oregon businesses and families create advantageous estate and succession strategies, ultimately achieving greater harmony in family and business relationships. “There’s nothing more rewarding than helping a family prevent discord and multigenerational conflict,” she says. She also specializes in international estate planning law and likes the complexity of this area of law.


Prior to launching her own firm, Ginger served as general counsel for a large family-owned Oregon business. She gained great insight from this experience on the issues and challenges family-owned businesses face day-to-day. She understands what is important and how to solve the legal and corporate needs.


She frequently speaks on topics related to estate planning such as the Essentials of Estate Planning, Charitable Giving and Benefit Companies to other community and financial organizations.


Ginger also enjoys giving back and being active in the community. She has volunteered more than 120 hours of service with the District Attorney for Multnomah County, in which she prosecuted crimes on behalf of the State of Oregon. She is on the board of directors for the Oregon Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association. The Chapter provides education and support for people diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, their families, and caregivers. She is an education programs presenter and speaks on topics pertaining to Alzheimer’s disease such as Know the 10 Signs, Alzheimer’s Basics, and Dementia Conversations (financial & legal issues). She previously served on the planning committee for the Memories in the Making annual gala. When not at work, Ginger spends time in the great outdoors with her miniature Australian Shepherd, traveling and cooking. She is a genuine Oregonian with ancestors who originally came to Oregon on the Oregon Trail in 1846.
