Estate Planning & Probate

The Barsness Law Firm, P.C. handles clients’ estate planning needs. Estate planning is the process of deciding who should receive your assets upon your death and how this should occur. In order to best serve our clients, it is critical to establish a trusting relationship so that we have an accurate picture of a client’s family relations and ownership of assets.

Jennifer Barsness, Esq. earned her LL.M. in Taxation from the University of Denver and has over 20 years of experience in estate planning. She routinely advises clients on Federal estate/gift tax laws. We offer a free initial consultation that allows her to sit down with her clients and really discuss their individual circumstances in order to determine how we can best serve a client’s needs. After meeting in person, we then have a better idea of what exactly needs to be done to accomplish a client’s objectives. We commonly use Wills and Trusts to accomplish goals. As part of our estate planning package, we include Financial and Medical Powers of Attorney, Living Wills, and Burial/Funeral/Cremation Instructions.

Our firm also handles matters when an individual passes away. This may include filing for Colorado Probate if necessary, Small Estate Administration, or simply assisting loved ones to administer a decedent’s estate and wind up his/her business or personal affairs. The Barsness Law Firm, P.C is also uniquely qualified to handle contested estates involving litigation due to Chad Barsness, Esq. extensive litigation background.
