Lawyers Assisting With Estate Plans, Asset Protection, and Probate in Wheaton and Downers Grove

Those who own significant assets will want to ensure that they have made the proper plans for the future. A comprehensive estate plan can determine how a person's assets will be distributed to their beneficiaries, while also providing them with the financial resources they need to support themselves throughout their lifetime. By working with an experienced attorney, a person and their family can take the proper steps to protect their assets, provide their loved ones with financial resources, and ensure that their personal finances and business-related matters will be handled correctly.

At Guerard, Kalina & Butkus, we provide estate planning and asset protection services, ensuring that our clients and their families are fully prepared for the future. We also work with the representatives of a person's estate to complete the probate process and manage their final affairs and the distribution of their assets to their beneficiaries. Through our chancery practice, we provide our clients with representation in litigation related to contested trusts and estates and matters involving guardianship.

Estate Planning Tools and Services

We work with clients to create comprehensive estate plans, addressing matters such as:

  • Drafting or updating a last will and testament that details how certain assets will be divided among a person's heirs and nominates a person to serve as the guardian for minor children.
  • Creating and funding trusts that place assets in the control of a trustee with instructions for how they should be distributed to beneficiaries. We assist with living trusts, irrevocable trusts, special needs trusts, charitable trusts, and asset protection trusts.
  • Developing business succession plans that allow for ownership of business interests to be transferred to a person's family members or business partners while ensuring that the business can continue operating successfully.
  • Tax planning to minimize the potential estate taxes, gift taxes, or other taxes that may apply when transferring assets to a person's family members or heirs.
