Estate Planning
Lois Kulinsky & Associates, Ltd. will represent your Estate Planning legal matters.
People need a skilled and attentive attorney when creating an estate plan, because each plan needs to be customized to the individual's needs. The Chicago lawyers of Lois Kulinsky & Associates, Ltd., have devoted more than 70 years combined experience to helping people determine the best possible estate plan for their specific needs and how to avoid or get through the probate process as quickly as possible.
Experience With All Available Estate Planning Tools
Our experienced lawyers have the skill to use all available estate planning tools, including:
-Wills
-Trusts
-Living wills
-Living trusts and pourover wills
-Powers of attorney
We also represent people in Illinois probate matters.

Elements of Estate Plans:
Everyone needs a basic will and testament to make sure their assets are distributed according to their wishes, and not as otherwise provided by law. However, a will is only the beginning. For everything from trusts to powers of attorney, our lawyers have many different options that can be tailored to your specific needs.

The Value of Trusts:
Trusts are one of the most commonly used estate planning tools, and we are familiar with all of the types of trusts available to accomplish unique goals, such as:

-Special needs trusts for children or adults with special needs. These can be designed to leave assets to the person with special needs without having those assets interfere with the government benefits that person may be entitled to.

-Land trusts for estates that are primarily real estate-based. These trusts allow real estate to be left without having it go through probate court. For homeowners with minimal other assets, these trusts, combined with a will, can be extremely beneficial.

Powers of Attorney:
Powers of attorney come in various forms. Durable powers of attorney are available when a loved one can no longer manage his or her affairs because of disability and a doctor certifies this in writing. General powers of attorney are more broad and do not require disability. There are also powers of attorney specifically for the transferring of real estate. We will thoroughly review your situation to ensure the form of power of attorney that meets your needs.
