Attorney Jeanine Friedman believes everyone, regardless of their net worth, should complete and routinely update their estate planning documents. Family and friends are confused and subject to second guessing when not provided with relevant clear directions and assigned roles on what to do when a loved one dies or becomes incapacitated. Lack of direction and confusion about who is authorized to act for the deceased or incapacitated can result in unintended financial consequences and family discord.
It is often considered taboo to discuss finances, family dynamics, illness and death with people outside of one’s family. These discussions are necessary in order to understand one’s personal goals and to solidify an estate plan with an attorney. Attorney Jeanine Friedman has worked with many families and individuals in Illinois in documenting their estate plans. She is a compassionate listener who supports individuals and families who are ready to have these discussions.
References, in home consultations, convenient weekday and weekend hours are services offered to facilitate documenting your estate plan. To learn more about how she can help you and your family, contact the Law Offices of Jeanine Friedman PC today.
