Colorado attorney Melinda Schlinsog’s practice emphasizes estate planning, probate, real estate, and corporate transactions. Before joining Douglas A. Turner, P.C., Melinda served as a judicial intern for two state judges in Louisiana and Colorado.

Melinda develops will and trust based estate plans by interacting with clients, assessing their assets and goals, and drafting estate planning and real estate documents to meet their needs. Melinda drafts revocable separate and joint trusts (including tax planning trusts), last will and testaments, financial and medical powers of attorney, and living wills. She has also assisted clients through probate proceedings involving intestate and testate estates, special administrations, guardianship and conservatorship proceedings.

Melinda has experience representing buyers and sellers in residential real estate transactions and drafting real property deeds. For several Colorado homeowner associations, she has also handled remedial actions, foreclosures, quiet title proceedings, and collections.

Melinda has grown up in Evergreen and still remains close to the community through her work as a coach for the Evergreen High School Mock Trial Team.
