Will County Estate Administration and Probate Attorneys
Probate Lawyers in Joliet, Aurora, Plainfield, and Bolingbrook
The loss of a loved one can be overwhelming for anyone. With so many details to consider, combined with the emotional impact of the situation, it can be difficult to even know where to begin. The compassionate attorneys at the Davi Law Group are adept at helping grieving clients navigate the legal processes involved with tending to the affairs of a deceased individual.
Our firm is equipped to handle probate and estate administration concerns for families of all types. We recognize, however, that every situation is different and requires a customized approach designed to meet the needs of each case.
During probate proceedings, the validity of the deceased person’s will is established. Alternatively, probate may make provisions the estate of a person who died without a will, a condition known as intestacy. Under Illinois law, all wills must be presented to Probate Court, as must the estate of an individual who died intestate. With vast probate experience, our attorneys understand how to work through the process efficiently and in a legally irreproachable manner. Probate can be time-consuming, but our comprehensive understanding of the law and its requirement can expedite the proceedings, achieving results as quickly as possible.
In many cases, we can develop estate planning strategies that avoid Probate Court completely. In preparing for the future, we can help you create an effective combination of instruments including wills, trusts, and powers of attorney that will provide the security your estate requires.
