Hiring a good Estate Planning Attorney in Chicago is an essential step to ensuring your wishes are carried out when you pass away. An estate plan allows you to state what you want to happen to your assets (commonly done through a will) and designate someone to make decisions for you should you become incapacitated (done through power of attorney declarations or advanced directives).

A well-drafted plan can help minimize the costs associated with the administration of an estate, which include taxes, fees, and time lost in the court system. In addition to a will, an effective estate plan includes a trust or other legal documents to transfer property and provide for your loved ones after your death. An experienced estate planning attorney can ensure your wishes are met and assist in avoiding disputes between family members.

Our lawyers are experienced in handling various types of complex estate planning matters and will help you develop a customized plan for your unique situation. We can help you with a variety of issues, including the creation of revocable living trusts, special needs trusts, charitable giving trusts, family trusts, and more. We can also assist you with a range of family law matters, including guardianship and probate.

Choosing beneficiaries for your possessions and assets is another key aspect of an estate plan. This is especially important for certain assets, such as life insurance policies and pension plans, that pass on to heirs outside of your will. We can help you select beneficiaries that align with your wishes, and create contingency beneficiary designations to protect against potential conflicts of interest.
