Jefferson County Probate Attorney


As a Jefferson County probate lawyer I represent both heirs and beneficiaries of estates as well as successor trustees. While most of my work involves supervising the probate process to ensure everything is handled correctly and efficiently, I am also an experienced litigator and can also handle heir disputes and will contests. My Evergreen, Colorado, office is a mere 20 minutes away from the Jefferson County probate court where a number of these issues are ultimately handled.

Avoiding Probate

If you or your loved one wishes to avoid the probate process, you should contact my office to consult with me regarding an estate plan which may be able to accomplish this goal. Not every estate plan may be able to avoid probate, but it is possible to minimize the impact. Probate court is variable, and it is not possible to predict future changes that may be instituted, but I am committed to helping clients prepare and update plans as necessary to reduce the expense and time involved in the process.

Handling Probate

Although probate can be expensive and time-consuming, securing the counsel of an experienced probate attorney can minimize these issues. I intend to help my clients through the probate process as quickly and efficiently as possible, many times able to finalize the distribution of assets in as little as six to 12 months.

Navigating the complexities of the probate process can be arduous. There are a number of seemingly insignificant and minor procedures, such as proper notification of creditors, that can hold up a probate process for months. If an individual lacks the proper estate planning documents such as a power of attorney, advance health care directive or wrote a will online, the validity of many decisions can be called into question. I offer guidance and peace of mind during this difficult time, and can help protect an estate from complete financial loss.
