Arapahoe & DOUGLAS County Estate Planning Attorney

Although many people believe it is only for the wealthy,
Estate planning is actually for everyone who has loved ones, such as children, grandchildren,
siblings, nieces and nephews, or surviving parents, no matter how much
money they have or how much property they own. In addition to the wealthiest
business owner, the successful physician and the rest of us, everyone
can benefit dramatically by putting an estate plan into place to establish
a true legacy and protect the ones they love.
At The Law Office of Steven R. Owens, P.C., we go beyond helping our clients
establish a simple
will or a trust: we take great pride in educating our clients on how they can protect
their loved ones by implementing
Integrated Wealth Strategies™
which include a variety of tools such as estate and
business planning, retirement planning and asset protection planning for individuals and
Our founding attorney, Steven R. Owens has been working in the legal field
for more than 22 years, and has authored books and articles on a variety
of topics. His articles have been published in national and local publications,
and maintain a focus on legacy planning, the importance of protecting
loved ones and how to achieve asset protection. Just as you would hire
a trial attorney to defend you in a contract dispute, you want a highly
educated estate planning lawyer navigating you through the most time-tested
estate planning techniques to achieve your specific goals and protect
your specific loved ones.
Caring for Those Who Cannot Care For Themselves
If you have a child or loved one with special needs, we can help you establish a
special needs plan. Special needs planning will ensure that a mentally and/or physically
disabled loved one will enjoy the benefits of your legacy without affecting
your loved one's eligibility for Medicaid, Supplemental Security Income
and other important public benefits. Special needs planning also incorporates
many other important concerns such as appointing successor guardians,
ensuring that your loved one will have an effective advocate and ensuring
that your legacy is sufficient for your loved one's needs. It is never
too early to start to plan for your special loved one; we at The Law Office
of Steven R. Owens encourage you to create a special needs plan as soon
as possible. One way to start is to attend one of our
free educational workshops on special needs planning.
Planning for Your Business's Future
Are you interested in obtaining more information about
asset protection and how you can protect the value of your business for yourself and your
loved ones? As a business owner or key executive, we know that you rely
on a strategic plan when making business decisions. Do you have a written
plan on how you are going to exit that business with sufficient assets
in time to enjoy a comfortable and rewarding retirement? Do you have a
written, solid, plan that will guide the business or professional practice
and retain its going-concern value for you or your loved ones if you unexpectedly
become disabled or pass away prematurely?
If your business plan ignores these fundamental questions, you are missing
out on a tremendous opportunity to cut your tax load – and you may
be exposing your business to great risks that threaten its continued growth
and survival. It is a sad fact that two out of every three family-owned
companies do not survive the first generation, and most business owners
are not able to harvest the full value of their business for their retirement
and their loved ones. These owners did not plan to fail, they failed to plan.
On the other hand, it is possible to put a proven plan in place today that
will protect your business, enhance its value, and allow you to harvest
its entire going-concern value for your retirement and to pass to your
loved ones, while at the same time minimizing or eliminating Uncle Sam's tax bite.
To understand more about how business and business succession planning
will benefit you and your business and what strategies you can put in
place today to cut taxes, protect your loved ones, and enhance your retirement,
schedule a consultation today with Steve, who is a third generation Colorado
attorney and who regularly helps Colorado business owners, both small
and large, in the areas of tax planning, business protection planning
and business transition planning.
