Thornton/Northglenn Estate Planning and Probate Attorney

Estate planning and Probate are important areas of law that work together to allow families to ensure that their hard-earned assets end up where they intend them to go. Estate planning can allow you to keep businesses in the family, protect your children’s future and ensure that your loved ones are comfortable for years to come.

If you have lost a loved one, you will more than likely be involved in the probate process in Colorado. At Althaus Law, we understand that the emotional side of probate is hard enough without the added stress of legal documents and court filings. That is why we handle the legal issues so you don’t have to.

At Althaus Law, we focus on helping our clients in Colorado plan for the bright futures of their families every day. If you have questions regarding probate, wills, trusts or other estate planning techniques, contact our Northglenn and Thornton area law firm today. Your initial consultation is free of charge.

Wills, Trusts and Everything Else You Need to Plan for the Future in Colorado

Our Thornton estate planning attorney understands that estate planning is a topic not many people are exposed to on a daily basis, so knowing how a will or trust actually works can be difficult. At Althaus Law, we strive to answer all of your questions relating to estate planning, including:

What is the difference between a will and trust?

How do guardianships work?

How do I avoid probate in Colorado?

What is a power of attorney?

How do I create an advance medical directive?

Caring for the Thornton and Colorado Communities

At our law firm, we care deeply about helping our community become better each day. Our founder, Jeff Althaus, volunteers more than 10 hours every month to local nonprofit organizations. Our law firm is also committed to donating a percentage of our profits back to charities and nonprofits in Colorado. If you know of a nonprofit that needs help, do not hesitate to reach out!

Do I Need an Estate Plan?

The simple answer is that everyone can benefit from having an estate plan in Colorado. The analogy we like to use to answer this question is while many individuals don’t absolutely need a car, it makes their lives much, much easier to have one handy. The same is true for an estate plan. You may not absolutely need to have one right this instant, but it will make your future and the future of those around you better.
