Denver Bankruptcy Attorney
During your free consultation, you’ll talk to Denver bankruptcy lawyer Clark Dray about all of your options for dealing with your debt including Chapter 7 bankruptcy, Chapter 13 bankruptcy, debt settlement, and debt repayment plans.
A Chapter 7 Bankruptcy is a trade-off. You agree to surrender certain assets to the court in exchange for having your debts wiped out. Fortunately, most if not all of your assets are protected by state and federal law in bankruptcy. A Ch. 7 can eliminate most types of debts including but not limited to credit card debt, medical debts, repossessions, broken leases, payday loans, and even lawsuits and garnishments.
A Chapter 13 Bankruptcy is a repayment plan lasting no longer than 5 years. In a Ch. 13, you get to keep your assets and repay your debts to the best of your ability with the portion of the debt you can’t afford to pay wiped out at the end of the plan. Chapter 13 is a great tool for repaying back tax debt, child support, or alimony arrears, and you can use it to stop a foreclosure and get caught up on mortgage arrears or HOA fees.
Regardless of which tool use choose to resolve your debt, we offer payment plans for your fees which allow you to pay them in installments as you’re able.
Clark is a member of the National Association of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys and the Colorado Consumer Bankruptcy Association.

Denver Estate Planning Lawyer
Estate Planning is the method by which you make your wishes legally enforceable decisions regarding how you are cared for when you can’t make decisions for yourself, and how your loved ones are provided for after you’re gone.
Some of the most common tools in the estate planning process are:
- A Will, which divides your assets upon your passing;
- A Trust, which holds assets and distributes them over an extended period of time according to your wishes;
- A Medical Power of Attorney, which nominates someone to make medical decisions for you when you’re not able to;
- A Financial Power of Attorney, which nominates someone to make financial decisions for you when you’re not able to;
- An Advance Directive, which instructs your doctors about the care you receive at the end of your life;
- An Appointment of Guardian, which nominates a guardian for your minor children in the event that you’re unable to care for them.
During your free initial consultation with Denver Estate Planning Attorney Clark Dray, you’ll explain your plans and wishes with him, and he’ll suggest the tools and strategies for best accomplishing your goal. Once you’ve settled on a strategy, we’ll provide you with a list of fees and get to work on putting together a plan which provides for your family in the way you’ve chosen.

Denver Probate Lawyer
When a loved one passes away, their family and friends are left to manage their final affairs. This includes paying their bills, collecting and selling their assets, and making distributions as set out in their will or trust (or as required by state law if they didn’t have an estate plan). In order to make sure this process is handled in a fair manner, a set of laws and procedures are in place which are generally referred to as probate. Colorado’s probate process is generally considered quick and easy when compared to other states, but there are still a number of formal steps to be followed.
Denver probate attorney Clark Dray will walk you through the probate process from beginning to end, making sure that you don’t make any mistakes that could complicate estate administration or result in liability for the personal representative.
