Dedicated Illinois Estate Planning Attorneys

Every adult should have some form of an estate plan, whether you are extremely wealthy or of modest means. A will is a good place to start. If you own a home or other property and want to avoid probate, we can create a living trust.

If you have a special needs child or adult, we can set up a trust that will not disqualify him or her from federal assistance. We can also help you with guardianships for vulnerable adults and children.

By setting up durable and medical powers of attorney, you can provide for yourself in the event an injury or illness incapacitates you. We can also create a living will to specify your end-of-life wishes.

Our attorneys also provide trust and estate settlement services for families dealing with probate. We can handle will and trust contests, estate disputes and trust and estate litigation.

Are you worried that trust or estate assets have been misappropriated? We can help you recover assets. If you are a surviving spouse or a custodial caretaker, we can bring a claim against an estate for you.
