Estate Planning


We understand that maintaining family harmony into the next generation is extremely important to most people and family dynamics can be dramatically affected by a poor estate plan. Our esteemed estate planning attorneys really listen to your hopes and wishes for your family once you are no longer here and their experience can provide you with peace-of-mind by creating an individualized estate plan that eases the burden on your loved ones.

Since opening our doors in 1978, our estate planning lawyers have gained satisfied customers throughout the western suburbs of Chicago. Our clients run the gamut from small business owners to families with modest assets to wealthy individuals. For each client, we avoid “one size fits all” solutions, instead assembling the ideal combination of elements for their particular needs. In so doing, we often uncover strategies that will save them significant amounts of money.
