Estate Planning

Patterson Weaver Law is a law practice that specializes in crafting customized estate plans, wills, and trusts for its clients at an affordable price. Proudly serving Colorado Springs, Pueblo, and the surrounding areas, attorney Patterson Weaver can help you plan for your family’s future.

Too often we put off planning for tomorrow—until tomorrow arrives. The sad fact is that all of us will pass on and leave loved ones behind. Maybe it will be ten years from now. But maybe it will be tomorrow. It will happen, and we cannot know when. When that day arrives, without a plan in place, the State of Colorado decides what happens to your estate, not you—and rarely what Colorado decides for your family is what you would decide yourself. Lawyer Patterson Weaver, will help you put together a comprehensive plan that is right for you, your family, and your finances.

Not Just a Will—A Comprehensive Plan

At Patterson Weaver Law, you don’t get just a simple will. You get a complete plan. Our Estate Planning Services are tailored to each individual’s needs and budget, but always include:

  • Will, Trust, or Related Appropriate Documents

  • Advance Directive for Medical/Surgical Treatment (often called a Living Will)

In crafting your estate plan, Patterson Weaver will listen to your goals, look at the assets in your estate, and work with you to determine the best course of action to keep the transfer of your life’s work to your loved ones as simple and free from estate taxes (death taxes) as possible.

The Process . . . Completely Pain Free

Your time is valuable. At Patterson Weaver Law, we want to honor your time and busy schedule by streamlining the process as much as possible. You will be asked to fill out a questionnaire with personal and financial information prior the consultation, and to bring documentation of any trusts or estate planning documents with you to the consultation. At the initial consultation, Patterson Weaver will review your financial situation, discuss with you your goals and desires regarding your estate, and will recommend a will based or trust based estate plan that is best for your situation and goals. Once your estate plan is drafted, a second meeting will be arranged for you to review your estate planning documents, and you will sign those documents in front of witnesses and with a notary present. The original documents will then be copied and combined into a dossier, and you will receive a professional, bound dossier of your estate planning documents, as well as copies for your records. While people typically fear the hassle of properly planning their estate, in most cases, your estate plan can be created from start to finish with only two appointments. At Patterson Weaver Law, we strive to make the entire process as painless and seamless as possible.

In fact, if you or a loved one have limited mobility, we can often come to you. Please call to see what arrangements can be made.

Don’t trust the future financial security of your family to the wisdom of the State of Colorado. Let estate planning attorney Patterson Weaver, help you properly plan your estate to care for your loved ones.
