Estate Planning.

Estate planning is necessary to make sure your assets are passed to the recipient of your choice. Pinzur, Cohen & Kerr, Ltd. has been handling the successful planning and administration of estates for many years. We are familiar with the law in this area, and with the complicated probate court system involved. All facets of estate litigation are handled by our law firm. Let us help you through this difficult and sensitive time, and help you make sure your wishes are followed upon your passing.

Estate Planning includes but is not limited to the following:

  • Estate Planning Strategies
  • Estate Tax Planning
  • Asset Protection
  • Wills and Living Wills
  • Trusts and Living Trusts
  • Life Insurance
  • Powers of Attorney

Wills & Trusts.

Preparation of wills and trusts can provide for the orderly disposition of property to your chosen loved ones. There are often circumstances when complex wills or trusts are necessary. These require the services of an experienced estate planning lawyer. By using trusts and life insurance properly, you can make sure that estate taxes (or what the people you leave your assets to have to pay to the government) can be reduced, and in some cases eliminated.

Living Wills, Powers Of Attorney.

Estate planning includes the preparation of living wills, health care proxies, powers-of-attorney and long term health care insurance. Guardianships can be utilized through the courts for those not able to provide for their own assistance.

It is extremely important to be familiar with, and to properly use, Illinois estate planning principles in order to effectively plan for later years. Come to our offices, meet with us, and discuss your situation. You will come to see the security and benefits that having a caring, experienced, and professional Illinois estate planning lawyer can provide.
