Cindy Van Loo
As a native Oregonian, born and raised in Tillamook, Cindy’s long and steadfast career in the legal field began when she moved to Portland as a young adult. She started her professional journey as a legal assistant in multiple downtown Portland law firms in the mid/late 1970’s. Van Loo Fiduciary Services, LLC was established based on the knowledge and skills she obtained by working for these firms which focused on cases involving probates, conservatorships, guardianships, and trusts. It was after serving as her father’s conservator in 2009, she realized she had the compassion and commitment, plus the technical skills, to help vulnerable individuals as a professional fiduciary. In 2011 she became a National Certified Guardian and Van Loo Fiduciary Services, LLC came to fruition.
Prior to founding Van Loo Fiduciary Services, LLC, Cindy focused many years on advocating for elderly and disabled individuals as well as people with learning difficulties; the families of those incarcerated; and children in foster care. She has served as a CASA, delivered Meals on Wheels, chaired an Oregon non-profit agency, cooked meals for the homeless, served in leadership roles in her church, and volunteered her services in a wide range of programs within the community.
Since the launch of Van Loo Fiduciary Services, LLC in 2011, Cindy has taken on numerous cases involving complex and challenging issues involving probates, trusts, conservatorships and guardianships. With the specialized skills she learned from her many years working in law firms, combined with her dedication for keeping vulnerable individuals safe, she feels her role as a professional fiduciary is the profession she has spent her whole life preparing for.
When she finds spare time, Cindy enjoys traveling, hiking on easy forest trails, oil painting a landscape, tending her garden of dahlias and vegetables, baking her famous cinnamon rolls, reading, writing in her journal, taking her naughty Australian Labradoodle, Sugar, on walks and snuggling with her Siamese cat, Coco. Cindy is a first-time author of her memoir, 20 years in the making; On the Write Path to Me & Free (published by BookBaby in June 2023).
