Firm Overview

Benson & Case is a full service law firm. We have 8 attorneys focused on providing legal solutions in Personal Injury, Estate Planning, Probate, Real Estate and Family Law.

Example cases



We handled an estate where a caregiver had coerced the decedent into transferring certain assets into both of their names jointly. Through litigation and ultimately a trial on these issues, we were able to get an order from the Court requiring the transfer of certain assets back into the name of the Trust and requiring the caregiver to pay our attorney fees.

A group of siblings, all heirs to an estate, came to us because one heir had improperly transferred the family home into her name alone. We filed a lawsuit on behalf of certain heirs. We had a trial to the bench and were able to obtain a judgment based on a constructive trust. The home was returned to the estate and was divided equally among all of the children.

Estate Planning
We have very experienced Estate Planning attorneys that can handle everything from a simple will to complex estate planning matters.
Does your current will or estate plan…

accurately define your current wishes?
protect your spouse or children from taxes?
ensure your surviving loved ones will be able to avoid the probate process?
reflect the latest in privacy documents (HIPPA), medical directives

If you are thinking about creating a will or estate plan…

Would you like to leave a legacy or charitable gift?
Are you dealing with aging parents that may be losing competency, physical or mental?

How we can help Estate planning is the area of law dealing with the distribution of an individual's property after their death, taking into account wills, taxes, insurance, property (real and personal) and trusts in order to gain the maximum advantage of the law while still carrying out the person's wishes.

Is your firm willing to help a client with one discrete part of a case, without taking on the whole case?

Yes.

What are your policies about dividing work within the firm to make the process most cost-effective for the client?

We use case management software that allows all people involved with the case to keep up to date. This helps keep costs down by making our teams more efficient.

How frequently does your firm use mediation, arbitration, or collaborative law to resolve cases?

When the case calls for it, we encourage clients to avoid going to court to reduce expenses and trauma.

Does your firm provide pro bono legal services or otherwise participate in your community?

Benson & Case does community service work — several of our attorneys donate time through the Colorado Bar Association or Law Line 9. Our firm also volunteers together in the community doing work such as the Komen Race for the Cure, Ronald McDonald House and this year a food drive for Project SHARE.

What distinguishes your law firm from others?

Our attorneys and staff form a unique team that really cares about the clients and works with them to get the best possible results.

What is your firm's point of view regarding clients educating themselves on legal issues?

We expect our clients to partner with us to find a solution — the more information they have the better they can actively participate in their case.
