Probate – Estate Administration

Chicago Courtroom Illinois

To most people, the words “probate” and “estate administration” are dirty words.  At the Law Offices of Howard Peritz, we agree.  That is why we recommend to all of our clients who have more that $100,000 in assets or any real estate at all, that they execute living trusts.  Please see our Estate Planning page regarding Wills & Trusts for more information.  However, for those who do not have the opportunity to do so, the Law Offices of Howard Peritz try to clean up the process of Estate Administration.

We will guide supervised or unsupervised estate administrators through the quagmire that is probate with as little discomfort as possible.  We will attend the appropriate court hearings, prepare the correct documents and attempt to complete the administration and distribution of the estate in the minimum time provided by law.
