Licensed in CO
Columbus School of Law, Catholic University of America

My practice involves counseling businesses and individuals on a variety of contracts, such as business formation, technology/IP, real estate, leases, and even domestic relations agreements. Much of my practice is dedicated to litigation. As such, I approach contract and transactional work from a litigation perspective by advising clients of the risks involved in failing to develop proper contracts. It takes more than knowledge of the law to be a good lawyer. A good lawyer is honest and forthcoming with clients and has a counseling ethos. And, to me, a good lawyer stands in the shoes of the client when considering how to best serve that client. Whether my client is a business or an individual, I am passionate about helping my clients understand their rights, responsibilities, risks, and possibilities.

Estate Planning Legal Questions and Answers

Durable Power of Attorney

Colorado

Asked on Nov 5, 2021

How does a durable power of attorney work when the person dies?

If you have a durable power of attorney and the person dies, do you still have the authority or does it go to the spouse. I have a durable power of attorney for my aunt, she just died and I'm trying to take care of her funeral and things. Does her husband now have the right to make decisions or myself with the durable power of attorney?

Sarah D.

Answered Nov 30, 2021

A Durable Power of attorney for finances (and healthcare) expires once your aunt dies. It is the executor of her will who now acts in that stead related to her finances. If the executor is the spouse, it will be his right to make the decisions. However, if all property was jointly owned between spouses, there is no need to probate the will under Colorado law.

Can I make changes to my will after it has been created?

Power of Attorney

Tennessee

Asked on Apr 21, 2022

Do I need a lawyer to get a power of attorney

My uncle is an elderly man and his wife passed away in January of this year. She did everything as far handling all of the important things. He doesn't understand a lot of things. He asked me if I would take over everything for him. So I think I need to get a power of attorney to be able to do tnat.

Rebecca R.

Answered May 3, 2022

A power of attorney allows you to make decisions and dispose of property, it does sound like one might be helpful in your situation. When an attorney writes up the power of attorney, you have a range of permissions to cover all the needs of your individual situation. You’ll want to be sure that you have the ability to write checks, etc. Additionally, the power of attorney will be useful if other family members challenge your decisions or actions. Drafting the document is a fairly straightforward process, and most attorneys will bill 1-2 hours depending on whether you need additional documents for healthcare and estate decisions.

Trying to become a poa

My uncle needs a power of attorney

Holly T.

Answered Jun 17, 2022

A POA is best done through an attorney to ensure the verifying/interested parties are proper, the agreement includes what the principal wants, the principal is competent in case of a challenge and it's filed properly if necessary, for example if it will be used to transfer property. All persons should have a POA, HCPOA, Advanced Directives and Will. You can also pull the POA form out of the general statutes of NC. The form is included in the law.
