We believe your attorney should not speak in legalese

Finding an attorney who is a “real person” can be difficult. Many attorneys surround themselves almost exclusively with other attorneys and are accustomed to speaking in ivory tower legalese.  You should be able to connect with your attorney on a personal level, and he or she should speak to you in plain language that you can understand.  You will be working very closely with this person on issues that are very important to you. It is important that he or she be down-to-earth and someone that you connect with.

We believe your attorney should be accessible

The most common complaint that clients have of their attorneys is that the attorney is unreachable, does not communicate with them regularly, or does not promptly return your calls.  Your attorney should reach out to you about your case regularly and respond within 24 hours to calls and e-mails.  An open line of communication between you and your attorney is essential to building trust.

We believe your attorney should be realistic with you about costs and outcomes

Your attorney’s goal should not be to win at all costs.  Rather, it should be to achieve a favorable outcome for you as efficiently as possible.  It is important that your attorney set realistic expectations at the outset as to the costs you should expect, the concerns that the attorney has about the outcome of your case, and the length of time that you should expect your case to take.

Regardless of the nature of your case, we have an experienced attorney who will focus on your individual needs. Our team of attorneys works closely together, bringing each of their different fields of experience to bear in order to optimize our client care.

How To Use Revocable Living Trusts To Avoid Costly Probate Proceedings

In this article, our Naperville trust attorneys discuss using a
trust to ensure that your estate avoids probate when you pass.

Probate can be
avoided by executing a revocable living trust and transferring your real estate
and savings accounts into it during your lifetime. Other steps to avoid probate
include: 

  1. Deed any real estate owned by the client into the trust
  2. Transfer any savings accounts that are not qualified retirement
    accounts into the trust
  3. Ensure that proper beneficiaries and successor beneficiaries are
    named on qualified retirement accounts and life insurance policies

In Illinois, if you own $100,000 of non-real estate assets and
real estate outside of a trust, probate is mandatory. Probate court can end up
costing you 5% to 10% of the estate in attorneys fees and court costs. Not only
is it costly, but it is time-consuming. Probate cases can take up to a year or
more to complete before distributing your inheritance. 

Using a revocable living trust will allow easy passage of assets
to your loved ones when you pass. This document is made to avoid the stressful,
lengthy, and costly process of probate. 

​Read the full article by our Naperville will and trust lawyers explaining why revocable living trusts are crucial in avoiding probate in Naperville.
