Boulder Estate Planning Attorney
The Rocky Mountain Healthcare Law helps all types of clients, including individuals, families and doctors and other healthcare professionals with planning for and protecting their families.
Whether they realize it or not, everyone has an Estate Plan. Either they have created it on their own or with a professional, or, by default, the state and the courts will determine what happens and who makes the decisions. Either way everyone has made Estate Planning decisions. Leaving these types of decisions to the state and the courts can often be costly and time consuming for the surviving family members or other heirs and rarely will carry out the persons true wishes.
Having an up-to date estate plan is essential to provide for your family and other heirs, to protect your assets, and to see that your final wishes be carried out.
Estate Planning for Lifetime Issues
Comprehensive Estate Planning is more than just a Will and a Trust that go into effect after a person dies. It includes planning for occurrences during life such as disability, incapacity, illness, lifetime transfers of assets and asset protection. Our comprehensive Colorado Estate Planning includes Financial Powers or Attorney, Medical Powers of Attorney, Living Wills, HIPAA authorizations for providers and other documents that are relevant to the individual client.
Depending on our client’s goals and needs, we can use Trusts which begin during an individual’s lifetime or that take effect upon the the client’s passing. Within those options we use strategies to help clients avoid costly probate, minimize estate taxes, protect assets from potential creditors and plan for and protect the inheritance of their future generations or other heirs.
Business Succession Planning
Many of our clients are business owners. For business owners, business succession or transfer planning is an important part of the estate plan. The Rocky Mountain Healthcare Law works with clients to develop strategies and plan for the transfer of their businesses as part of their estate plan.
The Rocky Mountain Healthcare Law is here to help you with your Colorado Estate Planning needs, from basic wills and powers of attorney, to trust planning, to sophisticated asset protection and tax strategies.
