Everyone needs a personal estate plan.  In Illinois, if you pass away without a Will, you are deemed to have died "intestate," which means the state gets to decide how to distribute your property and who gets to raise your children. Don't let this happen.  A simple Will can ensure that your personal and real property are distributed according to your wishes, name a guardian for your children, and make provisions to care for your pet.  A Living Trust enables you to own and manage your property and investments during your lifetime and then pass them to your trustee free of probate after death.  
The Law Office of Lauren A. Anaya is prepared to help you explore your options and offers various estate planning services, including simple Wills, Durable Power of Attorney; Healthcare Directives, and Living and other types of Trusts. 
 
As with our other services, the initial consultation is free.  In addition, all of our personal estate planning services are billed as a reasonable, flat-fee, which means there are no hidden surprises.
