Our firm helps clients by creating and keeping current many different types of trusts, wills, deeds, Transfer on death instruments, powers of attorney for health care and powers of attorney for property. (We also help clients with probate estates for people who are legally disabled,people that pass on, and minors.) Our offices are conveniently located in Cook County (3255 N Arlington Heights Road, Suite 507, Arlington Heights) and in Lake County (100 S. Saunders Road, Suite 150, Lake Forest IL.) We work with clients of all ages, whether its for a review of your current documents, an update or creation of new documents. We are here to listen and help.
A GOOD tip: People who have not yet planned for their families and people concerned with updating those plans that are in place. We also assist family members who need a guardianship for a loved one, surviving spouses and family members needing representation in Probate Court, people needing to transfer assets according to the terms of wills and trusts, and people who want to create special needs trusts.
I love helping people get their wishes and plans in order and to help them, where possible and desirable, avoid the probate court system.
There are no reviews yet
We review information with one or two intake calls. Often it makes sense for everyone to have a consultation in my office. Once the issues are reviewed customers can choose to pay just for the consultation or I can be retained to move forward and draft documents.
I have two law degrees, a Juris Doctor and A Master of Laws in Taxation.
Most work is hourly at $400 per hour. Some services are flat fees as well, including the initial consulation at $325.00 for one hour.
I began working as a law clerk in Chicago and then I was employed as General Counsel for three different corporations; after I earned my Masters in Taxation I began working in a private law firm in Des Plaines. I branched out on my own in 1992 and continue to practice in Chicago and the collar counties.
I work with large Corporations, closely held smaller businesses and families.
I enjoyed working with some of my clients to collect all assets from a deceased relative, properly distribute the assets and work with the clients and other referred professionals to assist them with planning for their own lives.
Try and speak directly with the attorney you want to work with so you determine if you feel comfortable moving forward with that attorney and you feel good that the attorney you pick has the expertise you seek.
