Dan McKenzie is a Colorado estate planning lawyer who can advise you on how to accomplish your goals while minimizing taxes, fees, and administrative burdens associated with estate administration.
Every adult should have an estate plan, especially those who have family relying on them or who have enough assets that a probate would be required (more on that below). While contemplating your mortality is never pleasant, easing the transition of your property and providing for the handling of your affairs by a trusted person or entity can give you peace of mind. It can also save you and your family considerable time, hassle, and money that would otherwise get spent on taxes, court costs, and legal fees. Assistance from an estate planning lawyer is essential if you wish to have an estate plan that is properly tailored to your situation. The McKenzie Law Firm has a Colorado estate planning lawyer for your needs. Along with helping you set up appropriate trusts and drafting a will for you, our team can further advise you on: Long term healthcare planning Appointing your agent with a medical power of attorney Durable power of attorney for financial matters Coordinating your life insurance and retirement savings with your will and trusts Conservatorships and guardianships Asset protection measures, such as by setting up a limited liability company or domestic asset protection trust Advice on gifting If your estate exceeds the estate tax exemption threshold Naming a charity as beneficiary "Pay on Death," or POD, accounts Business succession advice

Dan McKenzie opened the McKenzie Law Firm, LLC in 2013, following 10 years of work as a trial lawyer. As a trial lawyer, Dan helped consumers who had been defrauded by unfair business practices or who had been physically injured by poorly designed and inadequately tested products. Since opening his own office, Dan's goal has been to help clients identify and mitigate their risks to the full extent possible, with the goal of avoiding expensive and time-consuming litigation.
Dan is a Colorado native and is happy to now be raising four kids of his own here. As a parent, he makes it a point of special emphasis to help other parents of dependent children appreciate the need to have a proper estate plan in place.
