Colleen M. Henes joined Huck Bouma, PC in 2016. Colleen counsels high net worth families in various trust, estate planning, and administration matters with a focus on estate and income tax implications.
Prior to coming on board at Huck Bouma, Colleen worked at a boutique accounting/law firm in the northern suburbs for over seven years where she provided tax preparation, estate administration, and, more recently, investment management services to her clients. Her main focus was collaborating with family members after a loved one passed away. She worked with them one-on-one from the first meeting, through the entire administration, until the final tax return. She is gratified by the fact that although some of the administrations have ended, she has maintained relationships with many of her clients through tax preparation, wealth management, and trusteeship.
Colleen’s principal objective is to work with families and maintain strong
multi-generational rapport. She wants to build lifelong relationships with her
clients and their children and beneficiaries by continuing to be their trusted
adviser as their attorney, tax preparer, investment manager, and trustee.
Colleen was born in Evergreen Park, raised in DuPage County, and currently
resides in Glen Ellyn with her daughter, Emma, and rescue pup, Ella. She
enjoys relaxing at her parents’ condo in Twin Lakes, WI and traveling with
her daughter. She also loves catching baseball games and hopes to watch
a game in each park. Go Cubs!
