Life is pleasant. Death is peaceful. It’s the transition that’s troublesome.
Do You Have a Will To Guide Your Family?
If you don’t have a legal will, the state of Illinois has one for you. What are the chances a probate judge will divide your estate as you would have wished?
Drafting a will (or updating an old one) allows you to dictate what happens to you and your assets in the event of your incapacity or death. It’s a map that guides your loved ones to spare them from difficult decisions and unnecessary conflicts.

Peace of Mind That Your Affairs Are in Order
We work closely with you to produce a thorough will, in addition to other essential aspects of estate planning: powers of attorney, living will and health care proxy, guardianship.
If you are unable to make decisions (physical incapacity, mental impairment), a will and living will should cover all scenarios:
- Who manages your business and financial affairs
- How your minor children are cared for
- Who decides medical matters
- Whether to keep you on life support
When you die, a properly drafted will leaves no question of your wishes regarding:
- Who inherits which assets
- Funeral considerations
- Who is in charge of settling your estate
- Guardianship of children or disabled dependents
We can draft your will to address any desires, such as charitable donations from your estate, contributing to a grandchild’s college fund or establishing a pet trust. We can also write in criteria for the beneficiary (e.g., reach age 21, earn a college degree) or stipulate that inheritance be doled out over time to a reckless spender.
