President

Chris Gordon

From smaller firms to some of the biggest elder law and estate planning firms in the Denver area, Chris has garnered a breadth of experience uncommon for an attorney practicing since only 2010, having helped hundreds of Colorado families all all shapes and sizes set up and administer their estates. The timing was perfect to join forces with Wayne Stewart Elder Law to create Stewart + Gordon.

As a high schooler, Chris’s family lost his father to Lou Gherig’s disease (ALS). At a young age, he could see how his mother and siblings benefitted from his parents having their affairs in order.

A father of 5 small children, active in the community, Chris thoroughly enjoys serving clients in the areas of elder law, estate planning, probate, trust and estate administration, guardianships, conservatorships, Medicaid, and related matters. Active in his church and school communities, he is an active Scouter currently serving as the Bear Den Leader for his local congregation’s sponsored Cub Scout pack. He and his wife, Anna, enjoy every opportunity to share with their children their love of family, travel, skiing, and all forms of neighborhood adventures.
