Promoting dignity as we protect your family’s financial well-being

Families across Chicago, and all over Illinois, are struggling to protect assets and care for aging parents & loved ones. The complexities of current Estate laws do not make it easy for individuals and their families to cover all the bases without assistance.

Assisting disabled spouses, aging parents and grandparents sometimes makes it difficult to find time to address our own situation – even as issues surrounding estate law, elder care, trusts and Medicaid force themselves into our daily conversation.

Whether you want to preserve the dignity of an aging parent or spouse by making plans to insure they don’t outlive their assets, or take care of an existing estate to avoid future unseen liabilities – we can help. Our attorneys concentrate in elder care law and estate planning. We can also work with you to address the special needs of disabled family members or even manage the affairs of those who failed to make proper arrangements.

So, don’t wait until an issue becomes a crisis. Contact us today and let us help you protect your family’s assets and future while preserving the dignity of everyone involved.
