Comprehensive Probate And Estate Administration Representation

The probate, estate and trust administration processes are detail-intensive ventures. When a family loses a loved one, the cumbersome task of administering the estate can be overwhelming. At Zapolis & Associates, P.C., in Mokena, we care about people. Our seasoned lawyers have deep knowledge of Illinois probate and guardianship law. We work diligently and act to address all of the concerns that arise in estate administration matters. We are driven to taking the legal burdens for you during this difficult time.

Efficiency And Cost-Effective Results Are Hallmarks Of Our Law Firm

Our goal is to get the debts of the estate paid efficiently, and distribute assets to heirs, beneficiaries and legatees with precision in the least amount of time possible. We are fully prepared to protect your interests in all aspects of probate, trust and estate matters, including:

  • Probate court: Not all matters are processed in probate court. We will review the details of your loved one's estate plan, if any, and explain the probate, trust or estate administration processes that apply to your unique circumstances.
  • Probate litigation: While most probate matters run smoothly without disputes, we have substantial experience resolving conflicts that arise and lead to probate litigation, including will contests.
  • Trust administration: Trusts are generally intended to be used as tools to avoid probate. Our full-service trust administration capabilities are invaluable if trust disputes or other issues arise in administering a trust.
  • Guardianships: Whether you need to have legal authority as guardian of the estate or guardian of the person, we understand the pressure you are facing. Our trial attorneys have substantial experience preparing, presenting and litigating guardianship matters throughout Northern Illinois.

We draw on more than 36 years of experience in this complex area of the law to help clients through the administration process. Many of our clients come to us after speaking with families who we have helped in the past. We are honored that so many people are referred to us for our unrelenting representation and unsurpassed personal service. However, our focus is not on our past results. We are dedicated to providing personal, hands-on attention to detail to ensure the process runs smoothly in every case we handle.
