We offer full-service counsel to local and out-of-state clients in Colorado probate and intestacy cases. Depending on the size and complexity of the estate, our activities might include any number of the following:
- Formal or informal probate of the will
- Notice to heirs, beneficiaries and creditors
- Inventory of assets
- Valuation and sale of assets as necessary
- Preparation of estate tax returns
- Review, investigation and settlement or defense of claims against the estate
- Distribution of assets and final report
While these estate administration activities are typical of most cases, any given estate might present special problems, ranging from difficulty in locating next of kin to dealing with a disinherited spouse's right to elect a statutory share of the estate.
A knowledgeable lawyer can help protect the value of the estate by saving time and money through every stage of estate administration. Our understanding of Colorado probate procedures can help ensure that things will be done right the first time. Our ability to guide personal representatives through the process can also protect them from liability for oversights, late filings or conflicts of interest.
We also represent clients who need advice about guardianship, conservatorship and other probate matters. To learn more about the scope of our probate practice, contact the office of Jennifer Anntoinette Rivera in Denver.
