Estate Planning

Wills, Trusts, Probate and Estate Management. Planning for the future is always a wise idea. 

The State of Illinois has a one-size fits all Will for anyone who dies without having provided for the disposition of their assets during their lifetime.  The simple truth is that establishing an estate plan is one of the most important steps you can take to protect yourself and your loved ones.  Proper estate planning not only puts you in charge of your finances, it will also spare your loved ones the expense, delay and frustration associated with managing your affairs when you pass away.  Proper planning protects your children, avoids the costly and time consuming probate court process and provides for administration of your assets during incapacity.  A Power of Attorney for Health Care and a Power of Attorney for for Property are essential.  If you do not have an estate plan now is the time to take that first step, call us.  If you have not reviewed your estate plan in the last three or more years, now is the time.  Today.  

Real Estate

There is no such thing as a form contract.  Five Day Attorney Approval does not always serve its intended purpose.  The fine print matters.

Without an attorney whose only responsibility is to protect you and your money, the process buying or selling your home can be much more costly than necessary.  We represent buyers, sellers and financial institutions. There is a lot of money involved, your money, so chose an attorney wisely.  Chose an attorney who has handled thousands of real estate transactions, including sales, purchases, leases, and mortgage-based transactions, foreclosures, short sales, real estate tax reduction and landlord-tenant disputes.  The maxim that all men are created equal does not necessarily apply to lawyers.     

Business Law

We provide a broad range of range of business related services.

Our clients place their trust and confidence in us and it is no surprise that our practice is founded upon referrals from existing clients.
