Portland attorney and Gevurtz Menashe Associate Kali A. Jensen

Kali A. Jensen

For Kali, being a great estate planning lawyer is all about listening to her client’s needs, values, and goals. Whether she is guiding clients through the planning for their future, or the loss of a loved one, Kali brings her keen ability to ask the right questions, listen with an open mind, and form practical advice through her legal counsel. Guided by her genuine and disarming nature, Kali is the ultimate team player, helping clients understand the complex estate planning and administration process, define their own legacy, and ultimately bring peace of mind to each family she works with. 

When she’s not working, you’ll likely find Kali hidden away with a good book. She is an avid Harry Potter and Game of Thrones fanatic and a wiz at trivia! If she could live anywhere else in the world, she’d pack up her dog Lyra and escape to a charming town along the Mediterranean coast. Her life motto was shared by the great Albert Einstein; “Strive not to be a success, but rather to be of value.”
