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.

Transferring Assets To Your Revocable Living Trust Explained

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.​

Using Revocable Living Trusts To Avoid Estate Taxes

Our Tinley Park estate tax lawyers will assist you in the creation of a revocable living trust that will allow you to avoid probate.  After it's creation, monetary assets and property can be transferred to your trust so that all of your assets avoid probate.
