During law school, Marco Chayet’s grandmother was the principal party in one of the most controversial elder law cases in the state of Colorado. Estate of Milstein v. Ayers, 955 P. 2d 78 (Colo. App. 1998) is a landmark case which upholds the right to counsel and due process of incapacitated adults in Colorado in a guardianship proceeding. This experience was the impetus for Mr. Chayet’s career in the field of elder law, fiduciary representation and probate litigation. Besides being managing partner of Chayet & Danzo, LLC, Mr. Chayet is also the Public Administrator for the 18th Judicial District and past chairman of the Colorado Bar Association’s elder law section.
Mr. Chayet frequently lectures and publishes in the area of elder law, special needs planning and probate litigation. His recent publications include “How to Protect Your Family’s Assets From Devastating Nursing Home Costs-Colorado Edition” and the chapter on “Estate Planning for the Child with Special Needs” in the 4th edition of Elder Law in Colorado.
Mr. Chayet, born and raised in Denver, assists the philanthropic community in Colorado by serving on the board of many not-for-profit organizations, including being the current chairman for the Nextfifty Initiative, a new $200 million foundation serving aging issues. Mr. Chayet received his Juris Doctor from the University of Colorado School of Law in 1997 and is also an adjunct professor of law at the CU Law school teaching elder law.
