Practice Areas

KHS Headshot smAs Family Business Lawyer® in the Denver metropolitan area, I can help your family or business with a wide range of legal matters.   My firm is different in that it was built with the needs of growing families, and growing businesses, in mind.

As a parent or business owner (or both!), we understand your are BUSY.  Yet you want to know you’ve made the best decisions for your family or business.  You want to make sure your family and children will be taken care of and will be prepared to receive your wealth, both financial and intangible, if anything happens to you.  You also value ease, convenience and efficiency.    

That is my firm’s focus as well. We’ve developed unique systems so you can have the guidance you need to build and maintain a life of prosperity and wealth. We encourage communication with our clients. In fact, we’ve thrown out the time clocks so you never have to be afraid to call with a quick question.  We bill on a flat-fee basis, agreed to in advance, so there are never any surprises.

Our clients benefit from the individualized caring legal services we offer the whole family  – so become part of our client family and feel how much we care.
