Local attorney Mary Council specializes in estate planning

Almost everyone needs the services of a skilled attorney from time to time. Mary Council of Fort Collins is a graduate of the University of Wyoming College of Law with more than 13 years of local experience as an attorney.

Her solo law practice is geared to “ordinary challenges of life” such as debt issues, property rights and agreements such as leases. She assists small business owners with contracts, business restructuring and trademarks.

Mary specializes in estate planning, including preparation of wills and trusts, powers of attorney and designation of medical decision-makers.

Estate planning, Mary noted, is “something that people easily postpone, but if you don’t take care of it, you have no guarantee that your wishes will be honored.” Families with young children should name guardians and set up trusts so children will be cared for if that becomes necessary. The small business owner should coordinate his or her business succession plan and estate plan.

Without estate-planning documents, decisions concerning property, children and other heirs will be made by a judge.

To make life easier for her clients, Mary maintains a flexible schedule, and she can meet people at locations convenient for them. She is also accessible by phone and email when there are questions.
