Serving Grand Junction, Colorado, Mesa County and throughout western Colorado

My team provides superior estate planning services to clients throughout Western Colorado.


One of the most important documents in any estate plan is the will. A well-crafted will clearly outlines how your assets should be distributed upon your death, thereby avoiding potential disputes among heirs and ensuring that your final wishes are honored. Our law firm is skilled in drafting precise and legally sound wills that stand up to scrutiny and reflect your intentions.
In addition to wills, our estate planning services include establishing powers of attorney to designate trusted individuals to make decisions on your behalf, and creating advance healthcare directives to outline your medical care preferences. We also offer guidance on strategies to minimize estate taxes and protect your estate from unnecessary expenses.
Planning for the future is crucial to ensure that your loved ones are taken care of and that your wishes are honored. My comprehensive estate planning and will services provide you with the peace of mind that comes from knowing your affairs are in order. I am dedicated to guiding you through the intricate process of estate planning, helping you create a robust and legally sound plan that reflects your unique circumstances and desires.

Estate planning involves more than just drafting a will; it’s about creating a comprehensive strategy that addresses all aspects of your estate, including asset distribution, healthcare directives, guardianship for minor children, and minimizing tax liabilities. Our goal is to ensure that your estate is managed and distributed according to your wishes, while also providing for the financial security and well-being of your beneficiaries.

Our team takes a personalized approach to estate planning and execution, recognizing that every client’s situation is unique. We begin with an in-depth consultation to understand your specific needs and goals. This allows us to tailor our services to create a customized estate plan that encompasses wills, trusts, power of attorney, and advance healthcare directives. Whether you have a small estate or a more modest one, our expertise ensures that your plan is thorough and effective.
Navigating the complexities of estate planning can be daunting, but you don’t have to do it alone. Our team in Grand Junction, CO, is here to provide expert advice, compassionate support, and the legal proficiency you need to ensure your legacy is preserved and your loved ones are cared for.

The Attorney Who Gets Things Done

I am a trial lawyer who has practiced law in Grand Junction and Western Colorado for more than 36 years. I graduated from Northwestern School of Law, Lewis and Clark College in 1987, and began practicing in Grand Junction in 1988.

I have been practicing continuously since then and have substantial experience in the courtroom. I have earned a reputation of quality and effective legal work. I take pride in providing personal attention to each of my cases, protecting the rights of my clients, and successfully navigating my cases to a proper resolution. 

As a long time resident of the Grand Valley, I am an active participant in the community. I am a past President of the Grand Junction Downtown Lion’s Club. I have also served as President of the Mesa County Pro Bono Project, and have assisted in area youth sports.

When I’m not practicing law, I enjoys spending time in the outdoors of Western Colorado. I’m handy with a fly rod, enjoy hunting and love to ski.
