Anna Polko Clark is a member of the firm’s Trusts and Estates, Probate, and Business Services practice groups. Anna assists clients with estate planning and estate and trust administration, including the preparation of Last Wills, powers of attorney, advance health care directives, and trusts, to ensure wishes are clearly reflected with the goal of preserving family bonds and avoiding future litigation. Her litigation experience informs her estate planning practice making her a more careful planner better able to identify provisions or plans that may potentially lead to unintended conflict. Anna also represents clients in corporate matters such as business formation and corporate transactions, and enjoys building lasting relationships with clients while developing practical but creative solutions to unique and challenging issues.
“By focusing my practice on both estate planning and business services, I am able to provide clients with guidance to develop and protect their most important considerations: their family and their business. I enjoy helping clients form and operate businesses to achieve goals and care for loved ones, and then ensuring those loved ones are protected regardless of what the future holds.”
Before joining Jensen Baird, Anna was a partner in the litigation and estate planning departments of another Portland-based law firm and prior to that, practiced in a smaller York County firm. After law school, Anna spent a year clerking for the Honorable Jeffrey L. Hjelm of the Maine Supreme Judicial Court. As a law student, Anna served as the Production Editor of the Maine Law Review and worked as student attorney at the Cumberland Legal Aid Clinic for a full year and, upon graduation, was the recipient of the Clinic’s Outstanding Clinical Student Award. Additionally, she was an intern at the United States Attorney’s Office and an extern for a District Court Judge.
Anna lives in South Portland with her husband and three children and enjoys exploring their community and spending time with friends and family.
