Estate Planning

We always strive to be open and honest about our firm philosophy, our priority on client families, and who we are as attorneys, as people, and as parents!

We are parents and estate planning attorneys serving, collaborating with, and empowering our clients with excellent education and counsel, giving them PEACE OF MIND about the future of their children and loved ones.

What are your firm's strengths and style?

At Wills & Wellness, we focus on the fact your family will grow and change. Our emphasis is on planning for exciting and inevitable life changes, not just what happens when you pass away.

Many estate planning lawyers focus only on what happens at death. You might be familiar with the traditional experience: you have an attorney draft your estate plan presented in a nice leather binder - you put it away in a safe deposit box - it gathers dust over the years - you vaguely recall having to update beneficiaries but never get around to it - and 10 years pass without you thinking about it again.

During those 10 years, life changes. You'll have more children, buy a new house, grow your retirement account, take out a new life insurance policy, and buy the log cabin in the mountains you've always dreamed of. Essentially, you'll outgrow your estate plan.

That's why we work to build ongoing relationships with clients instead of a one-time transaction. We openly and happily communicate with clients about any and all of their estate planning questions as they go through life.

Our estate plans also help you capture what's most important to you and your family - who you are as a person - your values, insights, stories, and experiences you want to share with your loved ones. We believe memorializing and communicating your legacy is an important yet often overlooked component of estate planning.

Kim Ruddell

Wills & Wellness Estate Planning

I am an Estate Planning Attorney & Mom of Three and I absolutely LOVE what I do. Helping families ensure that their loved ones are adequately protected is my passion, and I feel so lucky to be able to guide my clients through the process.

My hope is to build long-lasting relationships and friendships with my clients and to become a trusted advisor through the many changes life brings.

Originally from Houston, Texas, I graduated from Texas A&M University and moved to Colorado for law school just after graduation. I received my J.D. from The University of Denver College of Law in two and a half years and was admitted to the Colorado bar in May of 2004. In addition to being an attorney, I am also a licensed real estate broker and I love to dabble a bit in real estate in my spare time.

I am the proud mom of three incredibly hilarious, smart and loving girls. Becoming a mom in 2011 made me realize that I would do anything for that little person and that her needs now came before mine. This is the same philosophy behind having a well-organized estate plan in place - it is not about you, it is about your loved ones. They will be the ones to benefit from your estate plan. Getting your affairs in order is truly an un-selfish and proactive choice you can make on behalf of your family.

When I'm not helping families make choices for protecting their loved ones, I enjoy spending time outside with my family, running, yoga and a good craft beer. I look forward to helping you and your family and to becoming your lifetime trusted advisor.
