Our experienced attorneys regularly provide guidance and counsel to fiduciaries charged with administering estates and trusts.

Experienced Attorneys Helping Executors and Trustees

We regularly assist our clients who serve as trustees of trusts, executors of estates, or in other fiduciary capacities with establishing and executing plans of administration that include:

  • Pursuing probate proceedings where they are required or where the opening of a probate estate is otherwise advisable;
  • Dealing with any creditors or claimants against the assets of the estate or trust;
  • Identifying and investigating the pertinent aspects of the assets of the estate or trust;
  • Disposing of trust or estate property, as required by the governing will or trust;
  • Preparing and filing, where required, Illinois and federal estate tax returns;
  • The preparation of, or assistance with the preparation of, accountings; and
  • Minimizing the client’s liability through the use of Receipt, Release and Refunding Agreements and, where appropriate, Non-Judicial Settlement Agreements.

Where beneficiaries or third parties become contentious in dealing with our fiduciary clients, we represent our clients in resolving those disputes amicably, where feasible, and in court proceedings when such disputes are not capable of a more expedient resolution.
