Greenwood Village 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.

I was named a Colorado Super Lawyer for 2018 again by Super Lawyers magazine, which had also named me“Rising Star” in Colorado for 2012, 2013, and 2014, 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.
