Wills  Trusts Attorney

With the help of a Chicago Illinois Wills & Trusts Attorney, you can give your loved ones peace of mind and ensure that your wishes are carried out as you intended them to be.

A Will is a legal document that stipulates how you want your money, capital, and assets to be distributed upon your death. It also names the executor of your estate and the trustees of any trusts established within your will. It is a great tool for setting out your final wishes and for establishing the guardianship of minor children or a loved one with special needs. Trusts are a way to avoid the lengthy probate process and can reduce the amount of taxes your family will have to pay.

With the assistance of a trusts lawyer, you can establish an irrevocable or revocable trust to protect your assets and property and provide you with tax advantages.
