After losing my wife to cancer at age 57 and remarrying seven years later, I needed to do some extensive Estate Planning for my blended family and to provide assets upon my death to my children and my wife in the exact manner I desired. Marc was able to construct a Will and Trust that met my needs to make the process smooth, to know my estate will pass to them without questions of my intent. It protects my children and my wife so there can be no disputes.
Marc worked hard to facilitate exactly what I wanted for my family in a manner that is clear and concise. I appreciate his hard work and understanding of the law.

Marc was so helpful in personalizing my Revocable Living Trust. He is very knowledgeable, personable, organized and precise in making sure you and your Trustees understand every document needed to help "fund" you plan. I am very impressed and would highly recommend Marc to anyone that wants expert and friendly advice in setting up your personalized "Will" or "Living Trust". I give him a 5 Star!! 1/08/16

Marc Carlson of Carlson Law Office provided a great service for us. Marc prepared a Revocable Living Trust for our family and he did a great job of explaining and outlining the provisions of the trust and how it all worked. He offered many different suggestions as to how to best structure the document and spent a lot of time making sure we understood how it all worked and what our options were. We are very pleased with the final outcome of the trust, how it works and the cost to complete the document was less than we expected. We would recommend Marc to anyone who needs estate planning advice and solutions.
Thanks Marc for a job well done.

Marc is very knowledgeable in the area of Estate Planning. Marc goes the "extra mile" to educate his clients, including funding of trusts. Marc is personable, easy to work with, and very competent. I highly recommend Marc.

I worked with Marc on a case in which we each were representing a trust, negotiating a real estate agreement between the trusts. Marc was diligent and professional to work with and I was impressed with his thoughtfulness and attention to detail in drafting the agreement. I would readily recommend Marc to anyone seeking estate planning assistance in the Longmont area.
