Our warm and experienced team can take the stress out of creating a plan that works for you and your family.

Establishing a Will

It may seem daunting to begin the process of establishing a will. It’s hard to know where to even begin, and the task can seem to emotionally taxing to think about. Our friendly team is here to help provide easy to accomplish steps that help you make a plan without being overwhelmed. We’ll walk you through the whole process and take care of the details, while making sure all the bases are covered in planning for your family’s future.

Probate Law

Probate law encompasses all of the legal pieces of distributing a person’s estate after their passing. During a difficult time as such, our caring team can help with tasks such as: Ordering death certificates, Filling out the probate petition, Filing the will with the local probate court, Filing the deceased person’s last income tax return, Getting appraisals of valuable property, Collecting proceeds from life insurance policies, Obtaining appraisals for the decedent’s real property, Communicating with beneficiaries, and more.

What if there is no will?

If a person passes away in Illinois with no will the Illinois “Intestacy Laws” will be used to determine who will receive the deceased person’s assets.

Our experienced team can help you make sense of The Illinois Probate Act. 

Note: Any assets that are co-owned such jointly owned property or that have a named beneficiary such as a life insurance policy are considered non-probate property, and do not fall under Illinois intestacy laws.
