Commentary and Analysis Regarding Colorado Law

Are you Putting Yourself at Risk By “Saving” on your Car Insurance? (Part 2)

Submitted by Bradley A. Hall

Last quarter, I wrote about how you are able to protect yourself and your family members from injuries caused by uninsured and underinsured negligent drivers. But what if the shoe is on the other foot? What if you are now the defendant who ran the stop sign, looked down at the wrong time, or committed some other act which injured another driver, pedestrian, or even one of your own passengers?

Public Benefit Corporations
Submitted by Suzan D. Fritchel
Beginning in April, 2014, Colorado will have a new business entity: the Public Benefit Corporation.

Three Ways to Empowerment

When clients make appointments for “estate planning”,  they tend to be focused on how they leave their property when they pass away.    While this is, of course very important,  we always stress that an estate plan is incomplete without properly drafted “powers of attorney.”

 A power of attorney is a legal document where you grant powers to make decisions for you under circumstances you dictate.  These powers include making financial decisions,  paying bills,  executing deeds or making medical decisions.     These powers can be effective immediately or upon disability.    What powers and when they can be used depends on your individual personal circumstances.
