Lawyers for Help Drafting Your Will

A will is usually at the foundation of any strong estate plan. At its most basic, a will is a legal document that is designed to convey your wishes regarding your assets, property, and more. Your will should be tailored to your particular financial and family circumstances, and may include provisions for:

  • Naming an executor to be responsible for managing your estate;
  • Dividing your estate among your heirs;
  • Donating a portion of your estate to charitable organizations;
  • Arrangements for settling debts or obligations;
  • Appointing a guardian for your minor children;
  • Funeral and burial considerations; and
  • Much more.

We are equipped to help you draft a will that covers not only all of your concerns but also one designed to withstand any potential legal challenges.

Trusts in Illinois

For many situations, a trust may offer more flexibility and control than a will. For others, a trust may be needed in addition to a will. A trust is an estate planning instrument that can transfer the ownership of an asset or assets while you are living, unlike a will which can only be executed upon your death. Our lawyers have the skill and knowledge to help you create:

  • Revocable living trusts;
  • Irrevocable trusts;
  • Special needs trusts;
  • Children's trusts;
  • Dynasty trusts; and
  • Pet trusts.

We will work with you in deciding which trust or trusts are most applicable to your situation. Choosing a person, or a trustee, to manage your trust is a very important decision and one that requires careful consideration. Let us assist you as you take the steps to providing a secure future for your family.
