What Makes Me Different? 

I have been practicing law for six decades. Over the course of my lengthy career, I have become adept in tax law, financing and accounting, and business law.  

How does this relate to estate planning? I am able to serve your family more holistically by providing my insight into your family’s financial situation and protecting the assets, wealth, and property that you have earned. While I am well into my 80s, my passion for families and the law has never dwindled. If you are in need of an estate planning attorney for your high-value net worth, contact me in Northbrook, Illinois for representation. 

Trusts 

If your family’s estate is of a higher value than most, creating a trust might be the best option to protect your financials and assets. By creating this, you are able to name benefactors for your possessions. While a trust is more costly than a will, it is a document that will remain private and avoids the strenuous probate process.  

As an estate planning attorney with a rich history, I can advise you on the decisions you will have to make and seek a way to protect everything that belongs to you and your family. If you reside in any of the communities within Lake County or Cook County, Illinois, such as Antioch, Deerfield, Highland Park, Lake Forest, North Chicago, and Waukegan, Illinois, contact me and request a free consultation.

Wills 

Similar to a trust, a will is a legally-binding document that gives you the ability to name beneficiaries for your assets after your death. Unlike a trust, this will be made public and may have to go through the probate process. However, you are able to name a guardian for your minor children and a manager for their properties. You are also to communicate how you would like your debts and taxes can be paid.   

Powers of Attorney 

There are two main types of power of attorney in the state of Illinois that you can name: a financial power of attorney and a healthcare power of attorney. Whether you choose one person to be both powers of attorney or two separate individuals, it’s important to choose someone you trust.  

The first one is a financial power of attorney (otherwise known as a property POA.) This gives the person you select the responsibility of handling your financial and business affairs.  

The other type is a healthcare power of attorney (In the state of Illinois, it is known as a durable power of attorney for health care.) This POA is given the responsibility of handling your medical decisions on your behalf.  

Whether you need someone to take care of your finances or health, you need someone that you can trust. You also need an attorney that you can trust to help you make the right decisions. To discuss your power of attorney needs, contact me at Goldstein Law Office in Northbrook, Illinois.
