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.

What is Ancillary Probate in Lake in the Hills

Selling and buying homes is a generally standardized process and the contracts used are similar, but there are modifications that you can make to ensure that all of your needs are contractually protected. Your realtor can customize that the contract to fit your specific needs. The contract will typically provide that each party's attorney will have 5 business days to

  1. approve the contract;
  2. reject the contract; or
  3. negotiate modifications to the contract.  

A good attorney will be sure to staunchly protect his client's interests while, at the same time, working to achieve a meeting of the minds between the parties so as to prevent the deal from falling through. Our Wheaton real estate contract attorneys ensure the best service when it comes to modification of contracts.

What is Ancillary Probate in Lake in the Hills

A probate case is typically opened in the state in which the decedent primarily resided. However, if the decedent owned property in states other than his or her primary residence, the executor or administrator may need to open secondary probate cases in those states in order to gain control of the property in those states. These cases are known as "ancillary probate" cases. In this article, our Lake in the Hills real estate contract attorneys answer common questions about ancillary probate cases, such as:

  • What is Ancillary Probate? 
  • When is Ancillary Probate Required?
  • What is the Process if Probate is Required in Multiple States?
  • How Do I Simplify or Reduce Costs for Ancillary Probate in Illinois?
  • How Can I Prevent My Estate from Going Through Ancillary Probate?

What Happens When Minors Inherit Property in Lake in the Hills

In the absence of a will or trust, the decedent’s estate will go through probate. The probate court will appoint a guardian of the minor child’s estate.  This person will be responsible for managing the inherited assets of the minor until the minor reaches age 18, at which point the remaining assets will be paid out to the child. The guardian of the estate will have the duty to preserve as much of the inheritance as possible for distribution to the child when the child reaches the age of majority.  

This can occur under various circumstances including: 

  • Decedent dies intestate (without a will or trust)
  • Decedent has a will in place, but not a trust
  • Decedent has a trust in place
