McHenry County Probate Law Information

law books

The Probate Court covers a diverse set of legal issues. The judge addresses guardianships of minors, approval settlements for minors, guardianships for disabled or elderly adults, deceased person with a will, deceased person without a will. A will can be administered without opening up a court matter.

My Philosophy

I chose to emphasis this area of law because it seemed a natural extension of my services for families. When a loved one dies or is in need, it is a difficult and emotional time. Trusted and caring guidance is needed.

I have dealt with the elderly and the disabled in my own life, and remember how important it was to do the right thing for them. I also remember my guilt, when I was unable to care for them myself and appreciated having an ally to support me.

I have helped friends with special needs children obtain guardianship when the children turns eighteen years of age. I also am routinely appointed by the court to advise the court if a guardian is needed and to recommend the suitable guardian. On occasion, the court has also appointed me to represent the alleged disabled person, who is fighting the guardianship.

I have administered estates in my family and recall how time consuming and lonely a process it can be.

My personal and professional experiences have given me insight into the different sides to probate issues and to craft an individual resolution.
