Sherman & Howard Grows its Trusts & Estates Planning Group in Denver

DENVER (August 29, 2023) – Sherman & Howard has added Ashlyn Fiscus to its Trusts and Estates Planning group in its Denver office.

Fiscus will be working with ultra-high-net-worth individuals, families, and family offices on customized estate plans, wealth transfer strategies, and business succession plans.

“I’m excited to continue building my law career at Sherman & Howard and collaborate with this talented team of attorneys while partnering with clients to enable positive growth,” said Fiscus.

Fiscus has developed governing agreements and business succession plans for small-business owners and compiled and filed federal gift and estate tax returns, applications for § 501(c)(3) recognition, and annual information returns for recognized § 501(c)(3) organizations.

“We are excited to bring Ashlyn into our trust and estate planning group,” said Sherman & Howard’s Trusts & Estates Planning Group Leader Jessica Broderick. “Her enthusiasm for estate planning, along with her people-focused approach, fit in nicely with our team and the firm in general.”

“I’m passionate about estate planning,” said Fiscus. “It’s a good blend of learning the nuances of the law and tax code while building relationships and learning what people need. It’s the best of both worlds.”

Fiscus graduated in 2020 from the University of Colorado Law School. Before that, she graduated magna cum laude from Kansas State University with a degree in Business Administration in 2016. In her last year of law school, she stayed busy working as a student attorney for the Entrepreneurial Law Clinic and as an intern at area law firms. Fiscus spent the past two years as a trusts and estates associate at a Colorado law firm before joining Sherman & Howard.
