Avoiding Probate After Death

We lead an active lifestyle in Glenview and many of us are very health conscious – and that’s great! We want to get as much out of life as we can. No one wants to talk about end of life issues and frankly, many people hate planning for the eventuality of death, but unless we do estate planning, the result could be catastrophic for our loved ones.

When estate planning has not been properly thought out or not done at all, it may fall into probate. The probate process can take months and tie-up the much-needed assets. Probate usually seems to come at the worst possible time. In addition to the probate process itself, legal fees and taxes can begin to eat up resources that should have gone to those you care about the most.

As a highly-experienced estate planning attorney, the Law Offices of Steven H. Peck Ltd., works to ensure that our clients will avoid probate after death or that they will be provided for in case of long-term illness or living trust situations or any other concerns they may have. We feel that the best way to live life to the fullest, is to have a solid plan in place.
