Jeff also loves cheering on the Denver Nuggets at the Pepsi Center. He attends the Immaculate Heart of Mary church in Thornton and has a deep appreciation for people of all faiths.

Deeper Professional Background in Estate Planning and Probate

Mr. Althaus has worked for the Office of the Deputy Public Administrator in the past. This is a little known office that deals with complex probate, guardianship/conservatorship, and estate matters. While at this office, Jeff dealt with families tearing each other apart trying to fight for inheritances, and many other heart-breaking issues. Through this experience, he has developed a mission to make sure that no one has to end up in these situations. Through proper estate planning techniques these fights can be avoided, and so can court.

In order to spread the word about the importance of estate planning, such as wills, trusts and powers of attorney, Mr. Althaus wrote a book. It is called You Only Die Once and it reached the best seller’s list on Amazon Kindle. It has helped numerous people with very difficult conversations, and it may be able to help your family as well.
