Carolyn Moller Duncan

Attorney at Law

After graduating from the Cumberland School of Law at Samford University in Alabama, I began my career serving people in Georgia and Alabama. In 2002, I decided to move to Colorado to continue my practice.

For nearly 20 years, I have helped people throughout Littleton, Centennial, Greenwood Village, Aurora, and Parker, Colorado with all of their estate planning needs. I understand how overwhelming this process can be, so I strive to make the process as simple and straightforward as possible.

MYTH: Estate Planning Can Wait Until Retirement

Fact: The sooner you begin planning ahead, the better off you will be.

No matter your background, the value of your estate, or your age, it is always a good idea to establish wills, trusts, powers of attorney, and the like. Should you unexpectedly pass or become incapacitated, your estate plan will be there to distribute your assets to your loved ones — saving them the headache and stress of making these decisions for you.

What Makes Up an Estate Plan?

Wills

Wills are used to designate the distribution of your assets to your family once you pass. On the other hand, a living will or an advanced medical directive can be useful should you become medically incapacitated and are unable to make important financial or medical decisions.

Trusts

There are two major kinds of trusts: revocable living trusts and irrevocable trusts. Whether you choose one or both, they each serve specific purposes and offer various advantages. To see which one is best for your circumstances, schedule a free consultation to meet with us.

Powers of Attorney

Financial and medical powers of attorney allow you to appoint someone to make certain decisions for you should you become unable to. As the names dictate, the person you assign will have full decision-making power for any medical and financial decisions.

Estate Planning FAQs

What If I Die Without a Will in Place?

If you fail to outline a will for your estate before death, the distribution of your property and assets will be put into the hands of the courts. Their decisions may not reflect your wishes and prevent you from deciding how your assets are distributed.

Do I Really Need
an Attorney?

Though it is possible to outline your estate plan without an experienced lawyer to guide you, it is not recommended. With our guidance, we can make sure every last detail is accounted for so your loved ones won’t run into any headaches or roadblocks later on.

How Long Does The Process Take?

Everyone’s estate is different, so there is no concrete answer. Depending on your unique circumstances, planning your estate could take anywhere from nine months to two years — but a skilled attorney can make that process more simple and efficient.
