Brooke Brestel and Sara Bucar are the two dauntless women who founded Brestel Bucar – a Broomfield law firm that specializes in estate planning - something most people are less than thrilled to deal with.
Yet, it is so crucial in protecting one's livelihood in… well, every chapter of life. It is also important for everyone to address at some level, regardless of wealth, marital status, or other circumstances. Estate planning is often reduced to plans for yourself or your loved one’s assets after death. But Brooke and Sara approach estate planning differently and treat it as a comprehensive way to protect you and your loved ones at every fork in life’s road.
Sara used a recent client as an example. “We had a client who was terminally ill with a young child. The child’s other biological parent was not involved and had a history of abuse. On top of that, our client was from another country and had very little support in the U.S. She was terrified that something would happen to her, thus putting her daughter in danger, physically, emotionally, and financially. We put a plan in place to provide as much protection for them as possible, allowing her to focus on what really mattered – her own care and treatment and spending quality time with her baby. She trusted that not only was her estate structured properly, but that we would be there to get involved and fight for her daughter and her wishes if she was no longer able to.”
What sets Brooke and Sara apart is they genuinely care about their clients. They take the time to truly listen and connect with people, which makes difficult conversations easier for everyone. Whether you’re in the circumstance of anticipating the death of a loved one, preparing for marriage, expecting children, or caring for aging parents, Brooke and Sara want to support you and your family through the legal nuances of major life events. They create a judgment-free zone, where the client is comfortable divulging some of the most personal information, such as family drama, bizarre family wishes, or the amount of assets and debts you may or may not have acquired over the years. Not just one singular client, but subsequent generations, have benefited from their meticulous, and heartfelt, work.
