Estate planning is not just for business owners or people with high value assets. Our estate planning attorneys help people throughout Illinois and Missouri plan for their future financial and physical health while protecting all forms of assets and the security of their loved ones to the greatest extent possible.

- Powers of attorney
- Medical directives (living will)
- Business succession planning
- Tax planning
- Multi-generational planning
We guide executors, administrators, trustees and beneficiaries of estates through estate administration proceedings in the most tax-efficient and practical way possible. Whether a deceased person had a legally drafted will or not, we will counsel you and assist you to properly interpret and follow the decedent’s intentions for the distribution of his or her estate.
As experienced business and estate planning attorneys, we have the knowledge necessary to help you prepare a will and trusts incorporating your business assets, including proper administration of your property, assets and business management.
