Top 3 Qualities to Look for in Your Attorney

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.

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.

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.

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.

Illinois Senior Planning: Allowable Transfers Within The Medicaid 5 Year Look Back Period

Our Illinois elder law attorneys discuss some of the common goals that our clients accomplish through estate plan.  Our Illinois elder lawyers guide our clients through the process of:

  • Using revocable living trusts to ensure your estate doesn't require costly probate court in order to distriubte your assets when you pass.
  • Using trusts and wills to appoint executors and trustees to protect, manage and distribute your assets according to your wishes.
  • Using healthcare and property powers of attorney to ensure guardian proceedings won't be necessary if you become mentally incompetent.
  • Using a living will to make end of life decisions.                

We also discuss several more specialized goals, such as:

  • Avoiding estate taxes
  • Planning for a loved one with special needs
  • Protecting your assets from creditors; and 
  • planning for long term care.

Our Illinois elder law attorneys know that no two clients have the exact same goals.  We work with each client to create the best plan to eliminate stress and worry in your golden years.

Illinois Senior Planning: Allowable Transfers Within The Medicaid 5 Year Look Back Period

In this article, our Illinois elder law attorneys explain allowable transfers within the Medicaid period.  

In order to qualify to have Medicaid pay for your long-term care, you must have already “spent down” all of your own assets.  One Medicaid planning strategy is to transfer assets such as the family home to your children in order to qualify for Medicaid without depleting your children’s inheritance.  However, any transfers of assets for less than fair market value within 5 years prior to applying for Medicaid will result in a delay in your eligibility for Medicaid.  This is called the 5 year look back period.  There are some exceptions to this rule.  Certain types of transfers may be made within the Medicaid 5 year look back period without delaying your eligibility for Medicaid benefits.  Our Illinois elder law attorneys describe the exceptions to the Illinois Medicaid 5 year look back rule in this article.
