It is vital to any successful estate plan to clearly designate and update beneficiaries, for assets passing outside the Will. Failure to review and coordinate beneficiary designations for life insurance policies, 401(K) plans, IRA accounts and other holdings could result in distribution of your estate in conflict with the provisions of your Will. Of course, it is just as important to maintain these declarations as situations change.
Ensuring all your assets are distributed according to your wishes requires a full and comprehensive estate plan reaching beyond the Will itself. The process can be complicated and mistakes can be devastating, pulling family and loved ones into lengthy and costly litigation, as well as subjecting them to unnecessary taxes.

Beth came alongside our family at our darkest hour. My children and I were in no emotional condition to deal with the unexpected death and the family ugliness that sometimes comes with dealing with estates. At 40 years old, I didn’t even have an attorney, but Beth came very highly recommended from people in my community. I so appreciate her taking up the armor and protecting us. After all was done, she continues to check up on us 12 years later. We trust her implicitly. Now we need her again concerning aging parents. I could be a very different person today – bitter and angry – but Beth was the tool I needed to be resilient."
I was referred to Beth Sparks over 10 years ago by a colleague and because of my positive experience working with her I have referred her to numerous friends and colleagues ever since. Beth is extremely knowledgeable, highly competent and experienced in her field and always looks out for her clients best interest. She has a way of making a seemingly complicated subject very simple to comprehend. She is Ivy League without any intimidation. I highly recommend Beth to anyone who needs assistance in Estate planning."
I was referred to Beth Sparks as I knew her then many years ago. I had interviewed other estate planning attorneys and they could not even come close to Beth’s knowledge, intelligence, integrity and creativity with estate planning for my family which was complicated and required sophisticated knowledge of estate planning laws. She is hands down the best attorney in town, in fact in all of Colorado! I have had to update portions of my will, always finding her responsive and available. Since then I have also entrusted her to do marital planning and she was able to help me and my fiancé, impressing us with her objectivity and common sense. Despite her Harvard law degree she is very smart but not arrogant and you will become a trusted client and friend. I highly recommend her gifted knowledge and professionalism. She is the best! A gem!"
My estate is complex and my family large. Beth and I put together a great plan that I am comfortable with for now and in the future. She is very knowledgeable and competent."
