OUR PHILOSOPHY

At Scarola Law, we believe planning is essential for people of all ages, regardless of wealth, family status, or current health. It gives you the opportunity to make decisions about many of the most important issues in your life and the people you love--from naming a guardian for your child to appointing someone to carry out your wishes with respect to your health and finances. We use a holistic approach to estate planning and take the time to truly listen and find out what’s important to you, then tailor your estate plan specifically to your circumstances and goals. We will help you plan for the unexpected so your wishes are known and your loved ones are protected through an estate plan.

Meet Colleen,
Attorney At Law

I graduated from The John Marshall Law School in 2006 and have more than a decade of legal experience representing individuals and businesses. As a mother and a wife, a sister, and a caregiver to my ailing mother, I particularly enjoy working with families with young children and those caring for aging parents.  I know how difficult it can be to balance our many responsibilities and plan for the future. Estate planning and probate and trust administration allow me to draw upon my prior legal experience and my long-time commitment to helping and educating others.

My Story

We moved to Castle Rock in 2013 and immediately fell in love with all Colorado has to offer. I embraced my new community and sought out opportunities to become involved. I previously served as a volunteer attorney for Castle Rock Teen Court, a community-based, juvenile intervention/prevention program that offers an alternative to the juvenile justice system. I am a member of multiple bar associations including the Colorado Bar Association (CBA), the Douglas County Bar Association, as well as the Solo and Small Firm, and Trust & Estates sections of the CBA. In addition, I serve on the board of Denver Mother Attorneys Mentoring Association (“Denver MAMA”), an organization devoted to furthering the interests of mother attorneys in the Denver Metro area as well as am an active member of Colorado Women Owned Law Firms (“W.O.L.F.”)

 

I truly enjoy giving back to my community, and I work hard to become a trusted advisor and work closely with my clients to build a personal lawyer-client relationship that lasts a lifetime.

 

In addition to practicing law, I am on the faculty at University of Denver Sturm College of Law as a Visiting Assistant Professor of the Practice in the Legal Externship Office. I have the privilege of teaching and mentoring law students as their develop their professional identity and career paths.
