I have spent my career earning client's trust with a deep knowledge of estates, trusts, special needs and tax matters. Many attorney's switch to elder law mid career which is understandable as it is a great specialization in law. Yet to truly understand how to draft a will or trust that will stand up takes many years of experience including handling estate  litigation. After spending years arguing cases where my client's felt they were not treated fairly in a family member's last will I know exactly how to protect my clients from that type of situation. Many of our clients are in situations where a spouse, parent or family member requires long term care and they don't know how to pay for it while protecting their assets. These are complex situations but I assist families in this area frequently. A masters in Tax from DU provides me. an edge that not many elder law attorneys possess. I can assist you with any aspect of elder law which includes probate, estate administration , trusts and wills, POAs , special needs, protecting your assets from long term care costs and how to pay for long term care. Feel free to give me a call .

Probate and estate
Bradley Frigon is extremely knowledgeable about estate matters including Medicaid. He helped me immensely during a difficult time in my life. His billing practices are very fair and the money spent on probate was well spent. His staff is friendly and helpful, as well. I would highly recommend Mr Frigon and his firm.

Great communication, very knowledgeable, easy to work with
My mother was diagnosed with Breast Cancer in early 2014. When she found out, she was quick to get her will in order with Bradley and his team. I was designated as her Power of Attorney and Executor of the will, and I had no idea what I was doing. In the initial meetings, Bradley explained everything very carefully, and took plenty of time to answer all of our questions. She passed in April of the following year, and everyone at the office was very helpful while I navigated the complicated process of selling her house, managing her finances, and ultimately settling the estate. They were able to communicate quickly and effectively when I needed it, and made the process much easier than it would have been doing it alone. I'm very grateful to Brad, Vicky, and the rest of the team.

The Best Representation
My mother's wish was to have my sister and I wait one year from her death to split the inheritance 50/50. As the year from her death approached I contacted my sister regarding splitting the inheritance, but she refused planning on keeping all of the money for herself and making her husband full beneficiary. My mother lived and passed away in Denver, Colorado and I live in Kansas City, Missouri. After doing an internet search, I found Mr. Frigon's site very professional, thus I contacted his office for a consultation. Although my mother made my sister personal representative and full beneficiary on the inheritance, Mr. Frigon was successful in demonstrating my mother's wishes prior to her death to my sister's attorney in the matter. The matter finally resolved in receiving 50% of my mother's inheritance and for each of my sons to receive money towards a down payment on a home. In conclusion, Mr. Frigon and his office demonstrated the highest level of professionalism and kept me apprised of all matters regarding this issue. The cost of resolving this issue was very fair.
