About Me

Byron K. Hammond, a resident of Denver, Colorado, is a seasoned estate planning and probate attorney, as well as an adjunct professor of law at the University of Denver Sturm College of Law. His law practice includes estate planning, probate / estate administration, elder law, and health law.  In his career as a law professor, he has taught courses in trusts and estates, health law and a nationally recognized elder law seminar. He has published many papers pertaining to his areas of expertise as well as participated in many conference presentations.


 


Byron has opened a small, boutique law practice offering his estate-planning expertise to clients of all ages.  By having a small, select practice, his goal is to get to know each client and offer personal service to fit their particular needs. Not a one-size-fits-all approach. Truly a customized, personal approach to each client.
