The Process

Getting started with your estate plan is as easy as picking up the phone to make an appointment for an initial consult. We will work with you to set the appointment around your schedule and will tell you what you need to prepare for the discussion.

We typically address asset management during life, options for handling possible mental incapacity during life, and distribution of assets after death. Please be aware that if the estate plan involves two people, both individuals will need to be present for all meetings, including the initial one. Call (970) 618-9598.

Keeping Your Plan Up-To-Date

So you have taken the step of getting your estate plan in order. Now what? Your estate plan works best when it is maintained and kept current. Any time you have a life changing event, such as a birth, death, marriage, or winning the lotto, look at your estate plan to make sure it is still up for its task.

    I first worked with Kristine in 1991, and she has proven herself to be diligent in everything she does. She is smart, detail oriented, and focused, while also being friendly and kind. Her goal is to educate clients about the pros and cons of wills and trusts so clients can make intelligent decisions about the plan they choose to protect their family. She is wonderful to work with and produces quality legal documents.

    Engineer your Will or Trust with Ease and Confidence We built (and I mean built) our will and trust as engineered by Kristine in late 2020/2021. We worked with Kristine remotely due to the Pandemic. The remote process was simple and seamless. What I liked best about Kristine was her patience, knowledge and professionalism. She didn't mind my naïve questions or my "what if" questions, and patiently explained our options and the pros and cons of each. Nor did she seem to mind repeating answers, or dealing with "last minute" changes. (Please keep those to a minimum)Kristine would always remind us that this was OUR document and we could form it as we wanted. BUT she'd always explain the potential ramifications of our "not so smart" decisions and language recommendations. If you want a comfortable, friendly, and top notch attorney to address this "less than fun" obligation. ....I recently lost my mother and I clearly understand that IT IS AN OBLIGATION TO YOUR LOVED ONES! Kristine will make building your will and/or trust go smoothly and accurately. She will help you express your wishes in a way that best accommodates you and your beneficiaries for both the short and long term.And when it's all done, you and your loved ones have easy access to all of your signed and notarized documents in an indexed binder. Nobody will need to figure out how to access your PC, to get this information in times of chaos. Anyone that knows me, knows I'm all about electronic records. But I can appreciate the value of original hard copies when it comes to my will and trust.

    Thanks Kristine! I went into the process with some trepidation and a sense of overwhelm. Kristine listened to ALL of my questions and calmed my fears. I believe her talent for listening, along with exceptional knowledge of all things wills and trusts got me where I needed to be. It feels good to have my estate planning a done deal! I would also add that Kristine injects just a little fun and personality into the process as well. Thanks Kristine!

    Kristine is nothing but professional meets personable. I've enjoyed every experience I've had with her and CANNOT question her integrity

    We had a very good experience with Kristine working through some complicated estate planning. She was patient and took the time to explain everything carefully. Great follow up support and guidance as well. Highly recommend!

Delivering Positive Results

I believe family is wonderful, often complicated, and sometimes exasperating. I also realize that the length and quality of our lives is not guaranteed. The work I do as an estate attorney supports a healthy approach to addressing both: the complexities of family, however we define that, and the challenges of planning and preparing for the future.
