HOW TO CHOOSE AN ELDER LAW ATTORNEY

It is my privilege to become the new author for the Colorado Elder Law News section in the Senior Focus.  I am a 1989 graduate of the Denver University Law School and a 1980 graduate of the University of Colorado.  I have been practicing law in Westminster, Colorado since I opened my own practice in 1994.  I have always focused my practice on areas of the law which concern seniors: estate planning which includes wills and trusts, probate which includes estate administration, legal guardianships and conservatorships, real estate and family law.  I have always enjoyed working with the senior population.  I first recognized my ability to work with seniors when I would visit my grandmother in the nursing home.  I quickly realized that I could help seniors with their problems and that it was a pleasure to be of service to them.

            How do seniors choose an attorney?  You must pick an attorney who specializes in the type of law you need.  These days all attorneys are specialized because we cannot keep current on each and every type of law there is.  It is important to choose an attorney who has handled the type of legal issue that you are dealing with at the time.  The level of experience is also important; ask the attorney you are considering hiring how many similar cases they have handled.  It is also important to choose an attorney that you feel comfortable with.  Make an appointment with any attorney you are considering hiring to determine whether or not you could have a relationship with that attorney.  The location of the attorney’s office is also important.  Most of my clients want an attorney who has an office in close proximity to their home so that they do not have to drive across town to visit with their attorney.  If an attorney’s office is close to your home, you won’t hesitate to make an appointment when you need help.  Also if you are unable to drive, it will be more convenient to arrange transportation or you may even be close enough for a house call.  Recommendations are very important.  If you can get a recommendation from another attorney, a friend or a relative this is priceless.  I am very happy that Marvin Dansky has recommended me to all of his former clients.  His trust and confidence in me is priceless.

            I have 18 years of legal experience and I have always focused my practice in the areas of Elder Law.  I moved in to the Henry Law Offices with Marvin Dansky not only because he is a great attorney who I felt privileged to work with, but because he has a beautiful office which is convenient to any senior living in the North West metro area.  Our office has free parking close to the office and it is handicapped accessible.  If you need legal assistance I hope you will call my office and make an appointment with me so that we can discuss your needs.
