Denver Estate Planning and Business Lawyer Dan McKenzie

Dan McKenize Estate Planning LawyerMy commitment to making the legal system work for everyone predates my career as a lawyer. Prior to attending law school, I worked as a policy analyst at a leading Washington, D.C. think tank, studying the impact of changes to the welfare system on its recipients. While a student at Northwestern University School of Law, I helped low-income Chicagoans in danger of losing their homes to predatory lending practices. I also served as the school’s “public defender,” assisting fellow students who had been accused of honor code violations.

In 2012, 2013, and 2014, Super Lawyers magazine named me a “Rising Star” in Colorado. The Rising Star award is given to only 2.5% of those eligible for consideration, and recognizes exceptional attorneys who have attained a high degree of professional achievement. Since 2011, I have been a member of the Anti-Defamation League’s Mountain States Region Board of Directors. The ADL is a civil rights organization, whose mission is to “stop the defamation of the Jewish people and to secure justice and fair treatment to all.” As a board member, I make policy recommendations and publicly advocate for the ADL’s positions.

    Dispelling a Malicious Myth: Irrevocable Trusts Aren’t Irrevocable

    It’s counterintuitive, we know: irrevocable trusts are revocable (and amendable). Unfortunately, irrevocability is a malicious myth. The uninformed could spend years relying on an old, out-of-date trust that could be updated and improved without too much effort. Yes, the so-called “irrevocable trusts” absolutely can be, and, often, should be, modified.......
