Colorado Elder Law: Practice Areas
Elder Law. At Chayet & Danzo, LLC the needs of the elderly, disabled, and at-risk in our community are a main focus of our practice. We assist clients with issues related to estate planning, end-of-life decisions, disability and long-term care planning, fiduciary duties, burial and funeral directives, and public and private benefits.
Probate Litigation. We represent personal representatives, heirs, beneficiaries, creditors, and other interested parties with all probate litigation matters that may develop during the administration of an estate or trust.
Guardianships and Conservatorships. We provide counsel and representation to family members seeking to assist loved ones who are facing incapacitating illnesses or disabilities and are no longer able to manage care or finances. We also represent individuals who are objecting to the establishment or continuation of a protective proceeding for themselves or a family member.
Medicaid, Medicare, Social Security, and Veterans Benefits. We assist clients with navigating the complexities of the various government benefit programs available to our veterans, elderly, or disabled. We help our clients plan for eligibility and then we work with our clients from the initial application through post-eligibility. We are also available to litigate denials of benefits through the administrative hearing process.
Disability, Personal Injury, and Long-Term Care Planning. Our attorneys can advise you on accessing available resources for your needs arising out of a disability or advancing age to help families or individuals prepare for the future. We create a road map for coordinating public and private benefits so that our clients know for which benefits to apply and when. We develop legal strategies for asset protection, future rising care costs, and maintaining benefit eligibility. Our practice encompasses all aspects of planning, counseling, and advocating for the senior or disabled client.
Health, Disability, and Long-Term Insurance. There are a variety of private insurance options, including short-term and long-term disability insurance, that are available through employers or individual policies. Employees also have rights under COBRA to continue employer based benefits, through private payments, after termination of employment. Many of our clients have also purchased long-term care insurance policies to protect their future. However, too often clients who have a qualifying event are uncertain how to maximize the benefits they already have. We help our clients understand their policies to ensure their claims are processed appropriately, including appealing denials of benefits through the internal review processes used by insurance companies.
Estate Planning. We help clients plan for the future and that of their family through preparing important estate planning instruments. These include wills, trusts, durable powers of attorney, medical powers of attorney, and living wills.
Estate and Trust Administration. We assist by providing counsel and representation to the personal representatives, trustees, heirs, and beneficiaries of an estate during the normal course of administration.
Representation of Fiduciaries. The roles of agent, conservator, guardian, personal representative, and trustee have tremendous duties and often require legal representation to complete transactions, interpret documents, and deal with creditors and beneficiaries. Our firm works with both family members and professionals acting in a fiduciary role. We are able to defend fiduciaries’ actions if and when challenged by a beneficiary through litigation and mediation.
