We Picked the Right Attorney
Marc did an amazing job for us. My husband recently retired, and we wanted to get our affairs in order. We began working on this process in the middle of the coronavirus pandemic, so Marc had to work quickly to adapt to the new environment. Which he did -- most admirably. He educated us about our options, and we ended up creating a trust. We also now have in place beneficiary forms, powers-of-attorney, medical powers-of-attorney, and a safety net for our adult children. It's such a relief to have our finances and wishes organized and on paper. The notebook Marc created for us is almost a work of art. I highly recommend his services.

Estate Planning
Marc assisted my wife and I in setting up a revocable trust for our estate planning. Going in we were not very knowledgeable about the complexity of the process or the level of detail that was required and Marc did an excellent job guiding us through all of the requirements. We’re very happy with the end result of Marc’s efforts and know that our children will benefit greatly as well.

Summary

Without proper and complete will or trust planning, you can leave yourself and family with a financial and emotional mess. Unexpected events can happen to any one at any time. I want to make a positive difference in people's lives. My mission is to encourage and help people and their families to be prepared in advance if a tragedy were to strike because of a car accident, fall, stroke, illness or death. I educate clients about the pros and cons of wills vs. trusts. My practice also includes helping people with the proper "funding" (titles and beneficiary designations). I also help people solve the potential problems with a General Durable Power of Attorney. Please call 303-775-1112 to schedule your initial Estate Planning Analysis Consultation.

We help you and your family avoid unnecessary expenses, anxiety and problems when death or mental incapacity occurs by guiding you to the best will or trust plan for you. A customized estate plan helps you protect your family, assets, money and dignity - making life easier for you and your loved ones by eliminating court action and reducing financial and emotional stress.
