Why Is Estate Planning Important in Colorado?
Protecting Yourself, Your Assets, and Your Loved Ones
People work their entire lives to accumulate valuable assets. Almost all of them envision their family members benefitting from their hard work for generations after they are gone. But without proper estate planning, these assets are vulnerable to costly legal battles. Your estate could become tied up in probate court for years, and a large portion of your property could be taken by local, state, or federal governments. A strong estate plan will also protect and provide for you while you are still alive, particularly in scenarios where you become ill or incapacitated.
The size of your estate does not matter: Estate planning is for everyone, and too many Coloradans ignore to their own detriment. When you come to Skipton Law, your estate is in good hands: Our Centennial estate planning attorneys can provide you with the compassionate guidance you need to make an effective plan that ensures the smooth handling of your money and other resources after your death. Your comfort is our top priority, and we will do everything we can to give you the sense of relief you deserve.
We pride ourselves on keeping the costs of our services reasonable through effective management. Contact us online or call (720) 770-3880 to discuss your estate planning needs today.

Get to Know Our Attorneys
Our founder, Skipton S. Reynolds, started Skipton Law because he believes that Estate Planning is here to give you control over who is in charge of taking care of you and, after you are gone, your family. Skip was drawn to estate planning after his his family lost control over where his grandmother could receive care, resulting in his grandparents being separated after more than 60 years of marriage. Our other attorney, Susan (Sue) Mickus, joined Skipton Law in 2019 as its Client Services Coordinator and now works with estate planning, probate, and estate administration clients. Having experienced long-term, terminal diagnoses with each of her parents, Sue brings personal knowledge to the importance of planning for clients’ affairs during life, disability, and death.Meet Our team
