Michael A Heimos
Mike co-founded the firm of Dean & Heimos LLC in 1995 immediately after graduating law school, and since has continued with the firms of Mullin Dean & Heimos LLP and now Michael A. Heimos PC. His concentration is in counseling non-US citizens anticipating US residency or immigration, and investing in US properties and enterprises, as well as vice versa relating to US citizens. Experience assisting these clients includes a variety of matters beyond crafting estate plans – such as counseling family offices on risk management techniques, interacting with financial institutions on full tax and regulatory compliance, establishing international charities, guiding entity-form and jurisdiction selection, and creating captive insurance programs and other techniques that augment business efficiencies.
He has authored commentary pieces including two major works for legal publisher BNA Tax Management, the Portfolios T.M. 837 2nd, Non-Citizens: Estate, Gift and Generation Skipping Taxation, and T.M. 806, Immigration and Expatriation Law for the Estate Planner. Other publications include chapters for compilations published by West Publishing and Chancellor Publishing, and of articles for Tax Management and the periodicals Asset Protection Journal, American in Britain and the American Bar Association’s Asset Protection Strategies.
It has also been his privilege to have impacted the law itself as several of his comments to IRS-proposed regulatory changes have shaped resulting rules. Mike is licensed to practice in the state of Colorado and in the US Tax Court and Federal District Court in Colorado. Current professional affiliations and memberships include the American Bar Association; the Colorado Bar Association; the BNA Tax Management Estates, Gifts and Trusts Advisory Board; and the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP). He earned his law degree from the University of Denver, College of Law and undergraduate degree from Benedictine College. His website is www.mhuslex.com
