Compassion, talent and dedication: guiding colorado families and Their Trusted Advisors During Times of Need

Financial adviser bilked over $2.3 million from senior clients

At our law firm, we focus on protecting senior citizens from abuse of all kinds through representation of vulnerable elders as well as family members or friends responsible for or concerned about their parents, grandparents or other elderly relatives or friends. Unfortunately, financial abuse of seniors is common, whether perpetrated by fiduciaries, caregivers, family members, strangers or professionals.

Part 2: Legal strategies for Colorado business succession plans

At our law firm, we help small-business owners in Colorado plan for the eventual exit from their commercial enterprises by developing creative, comprehensive business succession plans. In part 1, we introduced the idea of creating a business exit strategy for the eventual departure of the owner or founder of the business, which could be either unplanned such as because of disability, a planned retirement or several other potential scenarios.

Part 1: Colorado entrepreneurs should have business exit plans

Across our state, innovative, hardworking people are starting or operating small businesses in a wide variety of industries and professions. Commercial endeavors as diverse as a downtown boutique, a dental partnership, a plumbing service and a tool-and-die manufacturer have an often-overlooked need: a sound, well thought out business succession plan.

Part 2: What is long-term care insurance?

We recently posted here about the importance of long-term care planning in case of the temporary or permanent need for long-term health care at home, in assisted living or in a nursing facility. As a follow-up to that post, today we will talk about long-term care insurance as a potential component of this planning.

Part 1: What is long-term care planning?

At Chayet & Danzo, LLC, we help our Colorado clients prepare for the possibility that eventually, they may face the need for long-term care because of an illness, accident or condition that develops in older age. Many people do not care to think about these possibilities, but being prepared financially and logistically for long-term care can help loved ones when you face the need for such care.

Protecting vulnerable loved ones in severely cold weather

The winter of 2019 is shaping up to be one of the coldest on record across the country. Those of us with loved ones who are particularly susceptible to harm from frigid conditions — the elderly, developmentally disabled, mentally ill or physically handicapped — can take steps to protect them.

Survey of older Coloradans fosters understanding of their needs

The National Research Center’s 2018 Community Assessment Survey of Older Adults was recently released, providing detailed responses that inform us about the needs and strengths of our Colorado elders. Key players like local government bodies, nonprofits, private entities and others will use the CASOA data to better target services for older community members.

Lessons learned from Justice Ginsberg

As the media has widely reported, earlier this month U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg fell in her office, breaking three ribs. At 85 years old, a fall raises concerns for an older patient’s physical and mental health as well as questions about whether her environment could be safer. 

Techniques to improve physical condition and prevent elder falls

Many of the clients at our law firm come here because they are concerned about their aging parents. Problems can range from physical frailty to declining cognitive ability that can bring challenges in self-care and personal safety as well as open them up to other vulnerabilities
