Why O'Flaherty Law?

We Are Cost-Effective!  When we started our firm in the midst of the recession, we learned to survive in a lean environment and pass the savings on to our clients.  As the economy has improved, we have not changed our philosophy.  We are hungry to grow our client base, and so we have intentionally set our rates below what the market will bear.  Our mission is to make each client walk away feeling that they got more value than they paid for.  This is easier to do when we make our prices affordable.
We Are Client-Focused!  The secret to our success as a firm is incredibly simple: we build a personal relationship with each of our clients and treat them with the respect that they deserve.  We pride ourselves on our open lines of communication, frequent check-ins with our clients, and our accessibility.  We are here to help you in any way we can, often leveraging our network of resources to assist you with non-legal issues that you may be having.  We are your one-stop problem-solver and trusted adviser.  All attorneys say that they provide excellent client service, but, unlike other attorneys, we practice what we preach.  We make sure every client walks away happy . . . period.
We Are Comprehensive! We are your community law firm.  Our business is built on long-term relationships with our clients.  Our clients have the luxury of building trust over time with one team of attorneys, rather than having to find a new attorney for each different type of matter that arises over the course of their lives.  No one attorney can be an expert at everything.  That is why we have worked hard to assemble a team of attorneys with extensive experience in different areas of expertise.  Our attorneys work together closely to bring our collective experience to bear on any issue that may arise for our clients.
We Are Great at What We Do!  Since our business comes entirely from referrals and community involvement, our reputation for quality legal work is our greatest asset . . . and it is extremely important to us.  Each of our attorneys is truly experienced in his or her practice areas, with the highest personal standards of excellence.  We are proud of our reputation in the community, and we did not achieve it by accident.  Our reputation for excellence comes from hard work, continuing education, and an above-and-beyond approach to our clients’ cases.

Estate Planning Goals: Distribution Of Assets

This article is the second in a series of nine articles explaining the Eight Goals of a Good Estate Plan.  This article will explain how an estate plan can help you with the first goal of a good estate plan: Appointment of Fiduciaries and Distribution of Assets. For the sake of readability, I have broken this article into two parts.  This “part A” will discuss distribution of assets.  Next week’s “part B” will discuss appointment of fiduciaries.

A.  Distribution of Assets

In Illinois, if an individual dies without a will or a trust, state statute determines what will be done with her assets.  This is called dying intestate.  When an individual dies intestate, the assets will be distributed in equal shares to the first of the following groups that contains a living member:

  1. Spouse;
  2. Children – Note: If a child is deceased but has living children of her own, then the deceased child’s share passes to her children in equal shares;
  3. Descendants (e.g. Grandchildren, Great-grandchildren);
  4. Parents;
  5. Siblings;
  6. Nieces and Nephews.
