Estate Planning

At High Country Estate Law each estate plan is tailored to your individual goals and needs. A good estate plan can help you protect your assets, provide for your loved ones, and ensure that your legacy is managed as you intend. The documents most commonly used to do so may include Last Will & Testaments, Revocable Living Trusts, Special Needs Trusts, Healthcare Power of Attorneys, and Power of Attorneys. 

Last Will & Testament

A Last Will and Testament, often referred to simply as a "will," is a legal document that specifies how your assets should be distributed after your death. It can also designate guardians for minor children, specify your funeral arrangements, and name an executor to manage your estate. Creating a will is an important part of estate planning and can help prevent disputes and confusion among family members after a person's passing.

Estate Administration & Probate

Estate administration, often referred to as the probate process, is the legal process of settling the affairs of a deceased person, managing their assets, and distributing them to the heirs or beneficiaries. At High Country Estate Law, Attorney Victoria A. Brooks works one-on-one with the Executor, Administrator, or the heirs of the deceased to ensure that the estate is correctly being handled.  When a loved one passes away, the question lingers: what do we do next? Part of Victoria's mission is to help families answer that question and walk them through this process so that they have someone to turn to. 

Deed Preparation

A deed transfer, also known as a property deed transfer, is the legal process of transferring ownership of real estate (property) from one party to another. It involves the conveyance of the property title and the associated rights and interests in the property. Deed transfers are typically accomplished through the use of a deed, a legal document that serves as the written evidence of the transfer of property ownership. High Country Estate Law also advises clients on specialty deeds such as life-estate deeds and 1% deeds.  

Trust Administration

Trust administration is the process of managing and carrying out the terms and provisions of a trust. This process ensures that the assets held within the trust are distributed, managed, and administered in accordance with the grantor's wishes, as outlined in the trust document. Trust administration may occur during the grantor's lifetime, particularly if the trust is revocable, or upon the death of the grantor if the trust is testamentary. 

Business Formation: LLC's

At High Country Estate Law, Victoria will advise and assist you in choosing the appropriate legal structure for your business and navigating the legal requirements associated with starting and registering the business. Business formation is a critical step in the life of a company, and guidance is often essential to ensure that the business is structured correctly, complies with the law, and protects the interests of the owners and stakeholders.
