Estate Planning Services in Longmont and Northglenn
Our experienced team of estate planning attorneys is well-versed in all aspects of estate planning, including wills, trusts, living wills, powers of attorney, and personal representative deeds.
Trusts: Trusts offer a powerful way to protect and manage your assets while avoiding probate.
Living wills: Often called an advance healthcare directive, a living will allows you to express your preferences regarding end-of-life treatment so your loved ones have guidance if you’re ever unable to communicate your wishes.
Powers of attorney: These legal documents grant a trusted individual the authority to act on your behalf in financial or legal matters. That way, someone has the power to handle your affairs in the event that you cannot.
General durable powers of attorney: With a general durable power of attorney, you can appoint someone to manage your affairs and make financial decisions on your behalf, even if you’re still capable of handling them yourself.
Medical power of attorney: With a medical or healthcare power of attorney, you are able to name an individual to talk to your doctors and make medical decisions if you are unable to do so yourself.
