You work hard for your family, so knowing that you have planned for their long-term well-being and financial security can bring you comfort. Whether planning the care or support of loved ones upon your death or guiding you through the probate process as you mourn the loss of a loved one, attorney Jill Rose Quinn can help with all aspects of trusts and estates issues, including:

  • Estate planning
  • Estate tax issues
  • Executorship duties
  • Guardianship

Estate planning
When devising an estate plan, I consider how best to protect your children, support your loved ones and contribute to the charitable causes that are special to you.

I thoroughly analyze your estate and strategize the best means of transferring your assets, minimizing taxes, establishing guardianship for your children, caring for your pets, supporting personal philanthropic causes and protecting your loved ones. I draft a will that reflects your desires, and establish living trusts if they advance your individual needs and your estate planning goals.

Probate
The process of probate typically accompanies a painful emotional loss. I can ease the stress of probating the estate.

I assist executors in all steps of the complex process of probating a will in Illinois probate court, including:

  • Creating a plan of action to probate
    the estate fairly and expeditiously
  • Filing the will with the Illinois
    probate court
  • Closing and opening bank accounts
  • Transferring assets from the deceased
    to the estate
  • Paying taxes and other debts
  • Locating beneficiaries
  • Hiring professionals and experts
    when necessary

Probate disputes
The stress of a probate dispute can compound the pain of losing a loved one. When disputes arise, my composed courtroom demeanor can calm the emotionally charged process of challenging an invalid will or defending a valid will against erroneous claims made by unhappy beneficiaries. If you choose to preserve amiable family relationships, I can skillfully mediate disputes to reach just, equitable resolutions with your loved ones. When necessary, I assertively defend your beneficiary rights within the Illinois probate court.
