Congratulations on taking the first step towards your goals in preparing an estate plan. The fact that you are exploring different options to protect yourself, your loved ones, and your assets is commendable. A properly prepared estate plan balances competing needs in a manner to best reflect your goals. It can be an overwhelming process to consider on your own. We are here to help guide you every step of the way.



Estate Plans That Work


“Protecting you and your family is why we exist, because I have seen first-hand the devastating effects of poor planning.”

Death, disability, tragedy… no one wants to think about these issues.  We do so you don’t have to.  We use our talents and experience to help protect the things that matter most.  Technical sophistication and expertise is the bedrock of any successful estate planning law firm.  Our founder, as a former estate and trust attorney at a large Chicago Loop firm and a former Certified Public Accountant, recognizes that technical expertise is critical.  However, when in court attorney Correa saw too many estate plans that were technically correct cause significant hardship.  Thus, technical expertise is only the beginning.

By focusing on what matters most- protecting loved ones, promoting family harmony, avoiding waste, and allowing future generations to prosper – we begin to ask the right questions.  What is truly the plan if the unthinkable happens?  Who steps into the leadership roles, and are they ready?

We are constantly asking ourselves – how do we better protect our clients and their families?  We have adopted innovative proprietary approaches to estate planning that you simply will not find with other practitioners.  We are passionate about what we do, and we welcome the opportunity to meet and share with you.

Why We Do What We Do

We have witnessed first hand the devastation poor planning has on a family.

  • We care about people
  • Our team is passionate about families
  • Let us help you plan for a better future

Elder abuse is the darker side of aging. We represented a family where a mother had been abducted by one of her children. While we prevailed in court, the cost and hardship of the court battle destroyed a family. To make matters worse, it could have been avoided with a few basic estate planning documents.
