Top Frequently Asked Elder Law Questions, Part 2. By Rick Law, Elder Law Attorney in the Chicago area

How Do I Know If Hiring An Elder Law Attorney Is Right For Me?

Procrastination is an easy thing to do.

Sometimes when there’s an important decision to be made or a difficult project to complete (or start), it’s helpful to step back and assess the situation before diving in.

The problem is, when it comes to your health and financial well-being, hesitation can lead to disastrous consequences.  My law firm exists to help people navigate the complex process of aging with dignity.

It’s more than just paperwork…

If you’re facing a tough or uncertain road ahead, you may need a trusted guide with experience in dealing with the changing laws and complexities of growing old.  Or perhaps you’re approaching retirement and you’d like to start planning for the coming years in order to protect your family.  We may be able to help.

So how do you find out if an elder law attorney is right for you?

The best way to find out is to call us toll free at (800) 810-3100!  We’ll help you assess your situation.  If we can help, we’ll let you know and work out a plan that’s right for your family.  If we’re not a good fit for you or if we know another organization that could serve you better, we’ll let you know that, too.

Our Reviews

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!
