DuPage County Attorney for Real Estate Sales and Purchases
Asset and investment management issues are ones of grave importance. Whether you are buying a piece of property or organizing the distribution of matters of estate, failure to adhere to and meticulously check all matters of law can cost thousands of dollars. As such, it's important to partner with a lawyer whose understanding of the law and process is comprehensive.
In nearly 25 years of practice in Wheaton, Illinois, I've honed a comprehensive understanding of these processes.
For a competitive rate I work with individuals in every step of their process of asset/investment management, including:
Wheaton Real Property Attorney
I work with clients in every step of the real estate process, handling issues of closings, short sales, constructions, development, purchasing and sales, and refinancing. Where other attorneys can be in over their heads in these areas, there's not an issue I've not run into during my tenure. I'm committed to working with clients for a single flat rate (in residential transactions) to ensure no stone has been left unturned.
Probate and Trusts
When handling issues of probate and trusts, clients need someone who understands estate documents, including wills and statements dealing with powers of attorney. Like in real estate, if an attorney is going to reliably serve his or her clients, he or she must possess a comprehensive understanding of law or risk compromising the wishes of the grantor.
Power of attorney
A power of attorney designates an agent to act for the principal. The agent is called an attorney in fact. Unless the agent gives some consideration or has some other interest in the matter, the power of attorney is revocable by the principal. This power is automatically revoked by the disability or death of the principal.
Durable power of attorney
This power of attorney remains valid despite disability of the principal. Such a power is created by statute. There are two forms. One for health care and personal matters; the other for property and financial matters. These can be used to avoid a guardianship for a disabled person. Anyone can petition the court to open a guardianship, but it is not inexpensive, and may be too late to protect the disabled person and/or his or her assets.
