Aaron M. Burton
Aaron focuses his practice on business, tax, and estate planning. Prior to law school, Aaron served in the U.S. Army and National Security Agency as an Arabic linguist and Mission Manager. While attending law school Aaron gained valuable experience at the Denver Probate Court and the Internal Revenue Service. After graduating from the University of Denver with a dual-degree in law and taxation, Aaron clerked for Judge Marcelo Kopcow in Colorado’s Nineteenth Judicial District. In 2018 Aaron entered private practice and began representing individuals and corporate clients with respect to real estate and corporate matters including complex leasing, financing, and purchase and sale transactions. Aaron later joined a boutique law firm where he combined his knowledge of tax law with his corporate and real estate experience to specialize exclusively on trust and estate planning, administration, and litigation, particularly for clients who hold various business and real estate interests.
Aaron understands that each client’s needs and objectives are unique. Although Aaron is knowledgeable in sophisticated techniques designed to save transfer taxes, he also understands the value that many clients place on simplicity and clarity. Aaron takes great pride in providing his clients (and their families) with the peace of mind that comes with a thoughtful and efficient estate plan. When he isn’t advising his clients, Aaron enjoys golfing and snowboarding as well as reading about Colorado history.
