    DuPage Estate Planning Attorney

    A little planning goes a long way, especially when you work with our DuPage estate planning attorney. Taking the time to prepare for the inevitable is probably one of the most responsible decisions you can make for your family. Two of the biggest myths about estate planning are:

    1. You need be near the end of your life to prepare.
    2. You need to have a large estate or amount of assets to plan.

    Some of the biggest questions that families face while creating a will or trust are: Who will make my healthcare decisions? Who will handle my financial decisions? Who will get custody of my children? How do I want my assets divided?

    While everyone wants to have a say in answering these questions, if the owner of the assets does not have an estate plan in place, then the State of Illinois will provide one for you regardless of your wishes. Our estate planning lawyers provide customized, tailored services to meet your families needs. From Last Will & Testaments to Revocable Living Trusts to Irrevocable Trusts, we’re here for all your asset protection needs.

    When your loved ones don’t have a plan in place, all their assets go through a probate process in order for beneficiaries to receive an inheritance. This process can be extremely daunting and stressful for families who are still grieving. Our probate lawyer in DuPage works with clients from Oakbrook, Downers Grove, Glen Ellyn, Wheaton and Naperville to make the process as painless and efficient as possible.

    Furthermore, if during the probate process, a heir believes that the will is not valid or does not reflect the deceased wishes they can contest the will. This not only extends the amount of time the probate process takes, but further decreases the rightful heirs inheritance.
