Russel J. Sindt - Attorney at Law


Estate Planning and Administration


It has been said that everyone has an estate plan.  As for those persons who do not have a Will or other estate plan, the State of Colorado provides an estate plan through the laws of Intestate Succession, the only difference being that if you do not have your own estate plan the State mandates one for you.

Therefore, all persons including young individuals, middle age couples, and business owners, with estates of nearly any size should have an estate plan to save on taxes, preserve their hard earned assets, and to provide a personalized preference of their succession.

Our specific services encompass the full range of estate planning:

  • Will preparation from Simple Wills to more complex Wills with Bypass Testamentary Trusts

  • Powers of Attorney, including those for Medical matters and those for Financial matters

  • Living Wills

  • Trust creation including Revocable Living Trusts, Trusts for Minorís, and Irrevocable Life Insurance Trusts

  • Planning for Estate and Gift Tax reduction

  • Planning for family members with disabilities

  • Representation in Guardianship and Conservatorship proceedings

  • Planning for asset preservation and succession of family businesses
