Estate Planning Attorneys in Illinois

“Estate Planning” is a broad term that encompasses many concepts and answers many questions.

  • Who will my property go to when I die? How will my be assets be administered, and who will be in charge?
  • How will my creditors be paid after my death and in what priority?
  • Who will take care of my children?
  • Who will make decisions for me if, through illness or injury, I can’t make decisions for myself?
  • How can I avoid my estate going through costly probate proceedings?
  • What assets would trigger the need to open a probate case?
  • Who should I name as my executor, my successor trustee, or my agent under a power of attorney, or as guardian of my children?

The attorneys at SLG Family Law can answer these and any other questions you may have about the best way to set up your estate plan.
We offer a free initial consultation to review your goals and concerns and to answer your questions. We also review what estate planning documents you may already have in place and whether those documents need to be updated, amended, or supplemented.

We can answer your questions about Last Wills and Testaments, Revocable Living Trusts, Transfer on Death Instruments, Powers of Attorney for Health Care and Property, Living Wills, and general questions about the best way to identify beneficiaries on your accounts to make sure your property goes to the right people, and to avoid the expense and burden of probate proceedings.
Unfortunately, many people are reluctant to have these discussions and end up putting them off until it’s too late to take the right steps. Having a well-thought-out estate plan in place will give you and your family some peace of mind. Contact us to talk to one of our experienced estate planning attorneys.
