Bennett put together an estate plan for me and also helped me with succession planning for my business. He was truly excellent!
I was in a bit of a rush to get through the estate-planning process, and he went above and beyond in order to provide me with all of the knowledge I needed to make reasonable decisions, as well as prepare the related trust documents, etc., in a very short timeframe.
I found Bennett to be extremely intelligent, and he also has a personality that I found quite refreshing. In fact, I was surprised at how he was able to lighten the mood and make it comfortable to discuss emotional issues without underemphasizing the importance of what we were trying to accomplish.
I whole-heartedly recommend Bennett!

I met Bennett over four years ago on a ancillary gift tax issue associate with a real estate purchase. Bennett was more than generous with his time and expertise despite lack of direct gains. I was impressed by his command of the subject matter and his patience in explaining complex and some what arcane tax issues. Four years later, when it was time to set up my own estate, I went back to Bennett.
Bennett immediately remembered who I was as well as mundane personal details of me and my family, despite having only spent a few hours with me four years ago. I was a little taken aback by but the warmth in his embrace and firmness of his handshake made me feel like I was seeing on old friend. He made my S.O. and I feel immediately at ease and took great lengths to map out the entire estate planning process, answering myriad of our seemingly endless and perhaps pedestrian questions along the way. Bennett always took the time to ask how things were going and was genuinely interested in us as people. We never felt rushed or judged. He was also generous and engaging about sharing things in his life, something that is more often overlooked by his peers in the profession.
On the topic of the actual creation of estate plan, Bennett is patient, methodical, and inquisitive. On obscure scenarios that Bennett has not encountered previously, he has devoted hours to understanding the statutes and best practices, then comes back to present his findings and recommendations. He is truly the epitome of the term "counsel." I wholeheartedly recommend Bennett's services.

Not only is Bennett extremely knowledgeable but he genuinely cares for his clients more than anyone I have ever worked with.
He is the consummate professional and I give him my highest personal and professional recommendation. Work with him...you'll like what you get!

Bennett worked with me on my estate planning, that included creating a Living Trust, and has given me a solid level of confidence and personal loyalty in his expertise. He was patient in answering all my questions in a way that helped me easily understand all the documents. I truly didn't feel like just another client pushed through a process, but instead he made me feel important and never rushed through any session. I know that I can call on him any time, with any questions, and he will make the time to help give me answers quickly and clearly. I highly recommend Bennett for your legal representation. You won't be disappointed!

I did considerable searching for an estate attorney in Colorado prior to selecting Bennett Braverman. My choice was not misplaced. Bennett is passionate about his work, and is dedicated to getting estate planning done right.
Bennett's attentiveness to detail and experience, crucial to estate matters, enabled him to discover a fundamental error made by a previous attorney which saved me untold trouble. Bennett did exceptional work for me.

We've spent many hours working with Bennett on our estate plan, and two things really stood out. One, he knows his subject matter very well, and seems to have infinite patience for explaining, responding to questions, etc. -- at any level. Two, he is a genuinely compassionate individual.

My husband and I met with several attorneys in the past two years in an attempt to get help with our estate planning and trust establishment, but we never followed through with the process until we met Bennett Braverman. We attended one of his free informational seminars, and we were very impressed with his ability to communicate complex information in a professional yet engaging way.
We decided to hire Bennett to help us create our trust after our initial private consultation, and it was a pleasure to work with him on this important but stressful task. Bennett patiently walked us through all the steps involved in establishing our trust and listened carefully to our questions and concerns. His expertise and friendly, approachable demeanor made us glad we had chosen him to help with our trust. We found Bennett to be a highly intellectual and wonderful person. We would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for an estate planning attorney!

I'm a business owner and a second marriage. We initially went to see Bennett about having a will put together. He took the time to explain the differences and legal nuances between a will and a living trust. While our circumstances may not be all that different from many others, it was complicated with grown children from previous marriages, a business and personal preferences about hospitals..... Bennett put together a trust that met our needs and was aligned with out values. It is seldom that one can have such a wonderful experience in dealing with such difficult matters. My wife was elated when we saw what Bennett had done for us. We highly recommend Bennett for his knowledge, professionalism and genuine caring.

I am a retired Estate and Trust attorney. I have practiced Law in both Florida and Colorado for almost 40 years.
I have had personal professional experience with the legal services of Bennett Braverman, Attorney At Law. It has been my privilege to refer to Mr Braverman a number of families for Estate Planning. I'm always impressed with the positive feedback about Mr Braverman's services, that I get from referrals.
My family has employed Mr Bravermam for Estate Planning. He has expert knowledge of Federal Estate Tax Regulations. His people skills are excellent. I highly recommend the legal services of Bennett Braverman, Attorney At Law.

My wife and I attended a dinner/seminar that he hosted. At that event we were very impressed that he specifically answered all questions. We decide to follow up with all aspects of estate planning.
He is professional, provided many tips that made our estate planning easier. He included many contingencies in case a particular situation could not occur and then even had additional contingencies. He offered a wide variety of services so that we could select those best for us.
We now have a comprehensive estate plan that includes a detailed trust, wills, medical documents and special requests.

We have retained Mr. Braverman for our Trust and Estate needs, and he has far exceeded our expectations. Not only does he have very clearly adept expertise, but he has been patient, kind and has made what had initially seemed very daunting, now very accessible. He will part of our family for a long, long time.

My wife and I decided we need a trust. We weren't exactly sure what we needed and we are fairly new to the Boulder area. We looked online and decided to meet with Bennett. WOW. I did not realize building a trust for your family could be fun. The first meeting with Bennett was a master's class in estate planning. Bennett took the time to clearly explain how a trust works and how it would work specifically for us. He answered all of our questions (even some of my dumb ones). He was patient and caring. We decided immediately that Bennett was the guy for us, not realizing we just made a friend.
The process was well planned, personal and thorough. Bennett gets to know you. He wants what is best for you and your family. I would recommend Bennett to anyone. We took a chance on Bennett by seeing him on this site....you should take the chance also. He is a good guy. (also say "hi" to Bo his dog)

Bennett and I practice in the same geographical area and there is some overlap in our practice. It seems more often than not when the discussion of who is among the best Estate Planning attorneys around Bennett's name is usually one of the first ones mentioned--and these are from his peers (including myself) who wish we had the superior reputation Bennett has for delivering the highest quality legal product to sophisticated clients in a cost effective and timely manner.
