Denver Will And Trust Attorney

Failure to properly plan for how an estate will operate in the event of death or incapacity can result in countless hours of work, undue stress, legal battles that could have been avoided, thousands of dollars lost to taxes and attorneys' fees, and a compromise of the wishes of the decedent and family. I have seen this firsthand.

My grandfather died when I was in law school. Seeing everything that my family had to go through because the estate was not in order was devastating. It took its toll on the whole family. Now I work hard to make certain that others do not have to face these challenges.

I carefully customize every estate plan. Whether you have recently married, had children or adopted, or simply have not thought of estate planning before, I can help. If you are part of a blended family, a same-sex family or any other family, you and your family will benefit from an estate plan.

I generally charge a flat fee for my estate planning services. Estate plans typically include:

  • Last will and testament
  • General durable (financial) power of attorney
  • Living will
  • Medical durable power of attorney
  • HIPAA release
  • Declaration of disposition of last remains (burial instructions)
  • Guardianship documents for families with minor children

Depending on your needs, you may also benefit from having a trust established alongside this indispensable set of documents. Not only are trusts more flexible than wills, they offer additional strengths that pertain to wealth preservation, estate tax minimization and more. Gift planning may also play a role in your estate planning strategy.
