Meet Tanya "Arani" Shimer

My mission is to empower my clients by providing expert legal representation so that their legal plan supports and reflects their life plan.  My estate planning and probate clients find that I am a smart, no nonsense attorney who combines legal expertise with compassion and care.  My business clients benefit from the fact that I have real-world business experience.  My clients find me easy to understand and work with.  

My clients also benefit from the time and care I take with them.  Usually charging a flat-fee rate, I am able to take the time to make sure my clients understand their choices in regards to planning their estates or business entities – and how these choices will affect their lives and the lives of their loved ones without breaking the bank.  I understand that my law practice is not just what I do but also a reflection of who I am.

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time in nature, in meditation and in taking adventures. I am very happy to call the Colorado Rockies my home!  Aspen trees are front and center on my website not only because I am from Colorado and love our beautiful mountains, but also because aspen trees are all interconnected and to me symbolic of our own interconnectedness - I empower my clients by providing expert legal planning, which empowers them to empower others, including me.

Affiliations include Colorado Bar Association, Boulder Bar Association, the prestigious Boulder County Estate Planning Council, and the Availability of Legal Services Committee, and the National Institute for Trial Advocacy (NITA).  Graduated from the University of Colorado School of Law in 1996, having attended on a full academic scholarship.

I understand and embrace the fact that my legal practice is not just what I do- but a reflection of who I am.


The journey is the destination.
