COOK COUNTY ILLINOIS PROBATE ATTORNEY

Illinois Probate Law Lawyer

Even when a trust is in place, the complete administration  of an estate often includes  going through the probate process. An executor or an administrator  of an estate has the legal duty to ensure that probate  proceeding is handled properly  and in a timely manner to prevent future lawsuits from creditors or unknown heirs or legatees

WE HELP EXECUTORS SEARCH FOR POTENTIAL HEIRS AND NOTIFY CREDITORS

ARE YOU SEEKING  TO “AVOID PROBATE?”

Admittedly, probate can be a relatively expensive  process  but if it has to be filed, it’s also the most orderly and safest way of collecting and distributing  assets and carrying out the wishes of someone who has died.
