Greenwood Village Estate Planning and Business Lawyer Dan McKenzie
My 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.

I would not hesitate to recommend Dan to all my friends.

Almost every family has at least one member that doesn’t really fit the mold, and sometimes the discrepancy is so extreme that it would be a bad idea to leave them a large inheritance. If you have a child with a drug addiction or history of gambling, for instance, you’d......
It makes a great story that we’ve probably seen on the Hallmark channel around the holidays: a struggling family suddenly receives a large inheritance from a long-lost relative, and it resolves all the injustices in their lives. Unfortunately, if you talk to wealth counselors and estate attorneys, they’ll say an......
