Estate Planning

Park Ridge Area Estate Planning Services

There are countless ways to express your love for the most important people in your life. By creating an estate plan with the help of an experienced lawyer, you reassure your loved ones that they will be cared for in the event of your death or incapacitation. In that sense, estate plans are truly a celebration of your life, your accomplishments and your legacy.

At the Law Offices of Gregory P. Turza, J.D., in Park Ridge, Illinois, we will assist you in building a comprehensive estate plan that is clear and thorough. We can ensure that your assets are distributed according to your wishes, while minimizing taxes and protecting your inheritance from extended family or creditors. Getting the maximum amount of assets to the right people should be a top priority for an estate planning attorney, yet it is stunning how many estate planning professionals do not accomplish this essential task for their clients.

Estate plans are not strictly for wealthy individuals. We prepare estate plans for individuals from a broad range of economic backgrounds throughout the Chicagoland area. A significant percentage of our clients come to us after discovering that an estate plan created for them by someone else does not accomplish what they want it to. Others simply understand that life changes require them to review their estate plans and make adjustments and updates as a result of life changes — a divorce or a death in the family, for example, or the arrival of grandchildren.

All of the estate plans we create accomplish a number of things, but we never apply a formulaic approach. We take the time to understand your unique situation and your specific goals for how you want your estate to be handled.

Your life situation greatly impacts how your estate plan is structured. We prepare estate plans for a wide variety of situations that people encounter, including:
