- Elder law: Elder law is a relatively new term. There are two primary goals in the practice of elder law:(1) to ensure that if a person becomes incapacitated, disabled or dies, their wishes are clearly known and communicated; and (2) to ensure that if a person becomes incapacitated or disabled and needs long-term care in an institution or in their home, the impact of the cost of that care on their financial situation is minimized. Our experience places Poskus, Caton & Klein, P.C., as one of the pioneers in the practice of elder law in Colorado.

- Guardianships and Conservatorships: We assist individuals and families establish or contest guardianships and conservatorships of incapacitated persons. Guardianship governs personal and medical care while conservatorship oversees finances.
- Probate administration and probate litigation: The term “probate” conveys a worrisome meaning to many people because they associate it with a long, costly court battle over the estate of a deceased loved one. However, probate does not have to be difficult. Probate is simply the legal process of settling an estate and can be done without great expense. However, if the will is contested, the issue may need to be litigated or resolved in court.
