Alexandra Cochran Taylor
Allie counsels individuals and families, helping them understand and navigate the law, develop comprehensive plans to care for their loved ones and transfer assets, and clarify and manage their responsibilities during the probate process. Allie worked for our office as a legal intern during law school and then gained further experience as an intern at the University of Denver Office of General Counsel before she joined our firm as an associate attorney. Allie has worked with a diversity of individuals—counseling clients ranging from underserved populations to large corporations—and offers a fresh perspective and strategic, sound, and approachable sensibility.
While necessary, planning for the future can sometimes be uncomfortable and confusing. Many people have misconceptions about the law or feel intimidated by it. They’re also, very understandably, reluctant to think about what their wishes would be in the event of a life-altering accident or death.
I’m honored to help support and advocate for so many individuals and families, whether we’re working through important discussions or I’m helping them manage unfortunate circumstances. It’s satisfying to help bring light and clarity to these situations and illustrate how that same dense and formal legal language can be used as a tool to ensure that my clients are heard and safeguarded.
I’m a Colorado native and love the ease and beauty of living in the foothills of Arvada with my husband, Brooks, and our rescue animals, Annie Oakley, Wyatt Earp, and Doc Holliday. We’re often exploring the trails near our home or hiking off-leash trails in the State and National Parks in the Rocky Mountains. I also love sports and spend time in the evenings and weekends providing sports production support for University of Denver teams, adding the bugbox and other graphics to televised games. When I’m not rooting for DU or the South Carolina Gamecocks, I’m cheering for the Broncos, Rockies, Avalanche, or Nuggets. I also enjoy practicing my cello, which I began studying in 5th grade.
Supporting underserved populations is important to me—whether it’s volunteering at local animal shelters or working across language barriers to advocate for working class and immigrant communities. I am active with the Tribal Wills Project at the Sturm College of Law, which provides pro bono estate planning counsel to Navajo, Ute and Crow Nation families and individuals. Just as with our law office clients, Tribal Wills works to clarify ever-fluctuating state and federal laws and help these folks develop comprehensive and empowered estate plans.
