Attorney Jeanine Friedman is dedicated to providing compassionate estate planning assistance to individuals and families throughout the greater Chicago area. Whether you are seeking to create a will, trust or related estate planning document, Ms. Friedman can help.
Most of us work a lifetime to provide for our families, yet many of us never stop to consider how our families will cope financially or emotionally when we die or if a serious illness were to leave us unable to handle our financial and medical affairs. Discussing finances and death are sometimes considered "taboo," however, life’s journey is unpredictable, and it is essential to have planned for common illnesses associated with aging, disability or for the inevitability of death. If you have not planned your estate, the State of Illinois and the courts will decide issues such as how your assets will be distributed upon death, who will be the guardian of your children, and, under some circumstances, whether you will be taken off of life support. This costly decision-making process by the State is time-consuming and comes at a time when your loved ones are already distressed.
Jeanine Friedman can help you work through these difficult issues. Ms. Friedman will listen to your concerns and guide you through each step with understanding and legal advice to ensure your goals are met and your assets are preserved for future generations.
