    Losing a loved one is one of the most difficult, overwhelming experiences in life. Though I cannot take the pain away, I will help you through the Probate process with gentleness, compassion, and understanding.

    I handle the required paperwork and procedures to have a guardian or conservator appointed when the circumstances call for one.

In the almost fifteen years since law school graduation, I have had the opportunity to assist thousands of clients throughout the US with their estate planning, probate, and guardianship needs. Licensed in Colorado, Florida, and Texas, my background has given me a diverse perspective on the law and legal procedure.

After working as an Associate Attorney for other estate planning firms during the first half of my career, I founded my own firm, Goines Law, in 2018. My firm handles estate planning, probate, and guardianship matters in Colorado Springs and the surrounding areas. Our goal is to provide excellent legal service with honesty, integrity, and compassion.

Terrific counselor
Barb and I met Ashlea through our former long-time attorney, Linda Gould. Although initially nervous about changing lawyers, our meetings with and advise received from Ashlea have been top drawer. We highly recommend her and her staff.

Trust
Ashlea was very professional, clear, concise and thorough throughout the process of setting up a trust. I had wills done before, but she explained the benefits of a trust to avoid my family going through probate.

Excellent Lawyer!
I found Ashlea Goines after we had gone through a very bad previous effort to create a trust with another lawyer. Ashlea was able to take our old trust and, keeping the shell of the old trust while gutting most of the rest of it (to keep us from having to redo all of our funding of the trust), she created a new trust, with all of the necessary documents, that did exactly what we had originally wanted. She and her staff were patient and able to respond to our many questions and comments, for which we were very grateful. The documents she provided at the end of the process were invaluable and easy to understand (a far cry from our previous trust). I’d highly recommend Ashlea and her staff, as they were all exceptional in doing their jobs as well as being incredibly caring people.

Business owner
Ashlea crafted estate planning documents to include, trust, will, med. and financial POA. It was somewhat complicated with a blended family, and business ownership. The completed estate plan gives me peace of mind that my family will have an easier time when I am gone. I highly recommend Ashlea, she was knowledgeable, professional and just kind as she walked me through all the details and options of my estate planning.

Lawyer Ashlea Gaines is very knowledge and also very skilled in performing her professional abilities; however, her kindness toward her clients is her greatest asset.

A trustworthy guide
Although we knew it was needed, the thought of updating our will was overwhelming. But once we met with Ashlea we knew what we needed to do. She patiently walked us through all the steps and our meetings with her were pleasant. I can’t recommend her highly enough.

Excellent !!
Ashley reviewed the info I had and clearly explained to me her thoughts and proposals. Upon agreement, she let me know the exact fee to complete my documents. We set a date for final signatures. I was seen on time and greeted warmly by her staff. Competed package is very nicely done. I have and will continue to recommend her to friends and family.

A Pleasure to Work With
Ashlea helped us begin the journey of Estate Planning. She was very kind and made sure to explain to us what was in each document and how that would look like in the future. She really wanted us to understand what we were signing and also helped us think of alternatives that she could offer, if we were struggling.

This Firm is Outstanding
I had Ashlea help me with my estate planning and could not have been happier. When I first met with Ashlea she explained the whole estate planning process and answered all of my questions and concerns. Going into this process Ashlea made me feel at ease. She was available to me every step of the way, taking calls to answer my questions and following up like she said she would.
