Attorney Dan McKenzie

Denver Estate Planning Attorney Dan McKenzieDan McKenzie opened the McKenzie Law Firm, LLC in 2013, following 10 years of work as a trial lawyer. As a trial lawyer, Dan helped consumers who had been defrauded by unfair business practices or who had been physically injured by poorly designed and inadequately tested products. Since opening his own office, Dan’s goal has been to help clients identify and mitigate their risks to the full extent possible, with the goal of avoiding expensive and time-consuming litigation.

Dan is a Colorado native and is happy to now be raising four kids of his own here. As a parent, he makes it a point of special emphasis to help other parents of dependent children appreciate the need to have a proper estate plan in place.


Dan graduated from Northwestern Law School and has been practicing law since 2003. Super Lawyers magazine named him a “Rising Star” in 2012 and 2013, and a Colorado Super Lawyer in 2014, 2015, and 2016.

He is an active participant in the Colorado Bar Association’s Trust and Estate’s section, and is also a member of WealthCounsel, a national membership organization of estate planning attorneys and financial advisors. Dan works hard to ensure that his knowledge about the constantly-evolving rules governing estate planning and business formation, as well as the firm’s resources, are always on the cutting edge.
