Estate Planning & Litigation

Geneva Wills and Trusts Attorney
Kane County Estate Litigation Lawyer

Having a thorough estate plan in place is one of the most beneficial things you can do for your family prior to your death. A complete, well-executed estate plan allows you to make your wishes known with regard to how your property should be distributed and to whom after you pass. Estate planning also allows you to name the people you wish to make decisions on your behalf should you ever become unable to make them for yourself.

Estate planning can help you reach your goals in many ways. Talk to an experienced Geneva wills and trusts lawyer who will listen to you and help you build a comprehensive plan designed to accommodate your needs. At the law office of R.D. Skelton, Ltd., I provide complete estate planning and litigation services. I represent clients on all sides of these issues.

Estate Planning

When you hire me as your attorney, I will work with you to fully understand all your concerns and goals. We will work together to build a plan that clearly defines your wishes. I will present you with the options I think will best accommodate your needs and explain the pros and cons of each one.

I provide the following estate planning services:
  • Wills and trusts
  • Probate
  • Powers of attorney
  • Living wills
  • Tax avoidance strategies
  • Estate Litigation

    Estate litigation may become necessary when there is a dispute over a will or a trust. In these cases, a beneficiary or heir will typically challenge the validity of a will or trust when he or she feels that some impropriety may have negatively impacted his or her share of the estate. I represent people on both sides of these cases, including executors, trustees, beneficiaries, heirs and other concerned parties.
