Greater Chicago Estate Planning Attorneys
Estate planning is the process of arranging the way your estate will be handled after you pass away or if you become incapacitated because of injury or illness during your lifetime. Our skilled estate planning lawyers diligently work with our clients to identify and meet their estate planning needs and create estate plans tailored to the unique characteristics of each client.
Experienced Estate Planning Lawyers in Chicago
Estate planning is often misunderstood. While it often includes arrangements for your passing, effective estate planning actually focuses on anticipating and planning for all your future needs. A financial advisor cannot provide legal advice or prepare legal documents on your behalf, but the trusts and estate attorneys at Cross Town Legal often work our clients’ trusted consultants.
Estate planning creates a clear plan of action and provides for a smooth financial transition in the event of your death or incapacitation. However, our experienced living trust attorneys can also protect your assets from misuse or excessive tax liability during your golden years.

Our estate planning services include, but aren’t limited to:
- Drafting and amending wills and codicils
