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 Avoid Estate Taxes In Illinois

In the article below, we explain how to take advantage of Illinois laws to enable your estate to minimize or avoid Illinois and federal estate taxes.  The Illinois estate tax exemption currently is 4 million dollars, meaning any assets above this is taxable when you pass.  Our Tinley Park estate attorneys though can create and use AB trusts to receive an additional estate tax exemption.  Using AB trusts allows the maximum tax exemption for a couple to double from 4 to 8 million dollars.

In addition to AB Trusts, Irrevocable Life Insurance Trusts can be utilized so life insurance policies are removed from your estate's taxable income.  Also discussed in greater detail are objectives of grantor-retained interest trusts, grantor-retained interest trusts and annuity trusts and their benefits to your estate.​
