Illinois Estate Planning

If you live in Illinois and are beginning to think more about your later years, then you should speak with an experienced estate planning attorney from Botto Gilber Lancaster, PC. Our firm has more than 30 years of experience helping individuals plan for the future through:

The Benefits of Estate Planning

Everyone, no matter their income, savings, or retirement plans can benefit from a comprehensive estate plan. It is not about the amount money in your bank account or the size of your estate. It is about planning for the future in a way that benefits you and your family. By looking ahead and making provisions for the most likely and worst case scenarios, you will save your loved one's time, money, and aggravation. With your direction, they will know what you want and will have the ability to make it happen.

Through asset protection, the attorneys of Botto Gilbert Lancaster, PC can advise you on methods to protect the savings you have for retirement and your future medical care, which may include working with a financial professional to diversify your investments, purchasing life or long-term care insurance, or creating a trust to benefit your loved ones.

Next we can help you prepare for emergencies. Through creating powers of attorney for healthcare and general purposes, you are ready if you are ever deemed incapacitated due to a serious accident or medical condition. A general power of attorney gives your designated agent the authority to handle your affairs. This ensures your property, finances, and personal matters are handled the way you want. A power of attorney for healthcare enables you to give a trusted agent the ability to direct your medical care and further, to use or to withhold life resuscitating or sustaining machines when you are in a permanent coma or have terminal condition, if you desire that. The power of attorney for healthcare becomes effective when you become incapacitated or unable to communicate your directions, and it leaves directions for your loved ones and agent concerning your healthcare decisions.

Finally, we can work with you to create a will that divides your assets among your family, friends, and any charities based upon your personal preferences. This enables you to determine where your money, property, and belongings go instead of allowing state law to dictate who gets what.

We Offer Compassionate Estate Planning Services

At Botto Gilbert Lancaster, PC, our attorneys know that no one wants to discuss the end of their life. It is a morbid topic, yet a necessary future to prepare for. By working with us to draft your necessary estate planning documents, you not only protect your needs and desires, you also show your love and affection for your family. Contact us today at 815-338-3838 to schedule a consultation.
