By Rick Law, Senior Estate Planner And Elder Law Attorney in Chicagoland
Just about everyone who calls our office wants to know the answer to the million dollar question: “So, what will my estate plan cost?”
I wish I had a standard answer to that question! But every family’s situation is different.
Some have farms they want to keep in the family or businesses they need to plan for. Some want to leave a little money for their grandkids to go to college, and some just want to make sure they don’t outlive their money and that it’s there when they need it. And frankly, that last bit should be everyone’s goal! Our number one priority is to make sure our clients are safe and taken care of before passing along any money or assets to others.
That being said, you should know a couple of things about the way we do business.
First of all, you’ll never be charged per hour when you call our office. We want you to call and ask whatever questions you have and get the service you need without feeling nickel-and-dimed. In fact, we don’t bill hourly for any of our services! Instead, you’ll see a simple list of what we charge for each product and service we provide. We call it our “Menu” … different clients order different things to keep their assets safe! It all depends on your specific situation.
Second and most importantly, we only work with clients when we believe we can get them a substantial benefit in return for the work that we do. If we aren’t the right fit for you, we’ll try to help you find different organizations to fit your needs.
Our goal is to help our clients save as much as possible so that they can live out their golden years comfortably. The worst place you can be is out of money, because when you’re out of money, you’re out of options. Our Elder Law planning is meant to provide our clients with peace of mind and a sense of dignity as they age.
If you’re ready to start getting your estate in order and secure your assets for the “worst-case” scenario, please give our office a call at 800-310-3100. Your first consultation is absolutely free. We’ll let you know what steps you need to take, right now, to protect yourself and your family. Call now.

My wife and I had our first child three years ago. That’s when we decided to set up a trust, should anything happen to either of us. We reached out to Zach Hesselbaum to help us out. He was very thorough and professional throughout the whole process. Zach went above and beyond to make sure that we understood every detail of setting it up and he did an excellent job. We recently had our second child a few months ago. With the new baby, he helped us make the necessary revisions to the trust. Zach made this process great for us! I would definitely recommend using him for any of your estate planning needs!
