As an experienced attorney, I provide a dedicated and single-minded focus on working to achieve the best outcome for all of my clients.
For more than 15 years, I’ve been dedicated to serving the needs of those in Will, DuPage, Cook, and Kankakee County, from Joliet to Chicago Heights, and Orland Park to Kankakee, as well as the surrounding communities. My practice is devoted to matters involving estate planning, business law, business succession planning, probate, and family law (including divorce, parenting time/custody, and support).
I believe that when hiring an attorney, all clients should expect – and deserve – an attorney’s full dedication and commitment to achieving the best outcome possible, whether that be a comprehensive estate plan or seeking to achieve a client’s objectives in a divorce.
When speaking about law firms, we believe that bigger is not always better. At RNH Law, we have proven that experienced and tenacious representation, rivalling that of larger firms, can be provided by a small firm in a more efficient and economical manner.
When you hire RNH Law, you’ll be hiring me and my dedicated team. This means your matter will not be delegated to a junior attorney or paralegal. We routinely oppose large firms, and our record of success demonstrates that we zealously advocate for businesses and individuals.
I would invite you to call me and look forward to any questions that you might have.
Most people think estate planning is only about how assets will be distributed after death. In reality, estate planning protects you and your family during life – especially if you become severely disabled. At death, estate plans protect families from possible fights, and long-term disputes over how assets with great sentimental value will be distributed. For business owners, estate planning is critical in order to transfer a business to the next generation, minimize taxes, and keep a business “in the family” so that it does not need to be sold to pay estate taxes.
In Illinois, without a Will or Estate Plan, Assets Must be Distributed in Accordance with Illinois Intestacy Law
Don’t let this happen!
Find out how easy and affordable it is to get a customized estate plan created around your needs. Estate plans are typically prepared on a fixed fee basis (so you won’t need to be concerned about how much your plan will cost), and I can work with you over video conference (including Zoom) if desired for most stages.
As a business lawyer, I appreciate the proactive and pragmatic business counsel that small business owners need, and the pricing affordability that is desired. Business owners need solutions consistent with their objectives – not legal theories.
The best time to meet with a business lawyer is before disputes arise, and before there is an urgent legal matter. That is why I offer a completely free meeting with business owners so that I can learn about their business operations and goals, and so that they can learn about how I can help an owner to proactively minimize contract, employment, and other business risks.
As a business succession planning lawyer, I help business owners develop comprehensive estate plans focused on transferring their business either prior to or upon death in a tax-advantaged manner.
Feel free to call me so that we can set up a meeting and discuss your business matters.
Dealing with the Loss of a Loved One is Difficult. As a probate lawyer, I help estate administrators by answering questions, developing solutions to difficult distribution matters, and helping them fulfill their legal duties.
In most cases, those acting as an executor or administrator (both referred to as a “personal representative”) are serving in that capacity for the first time. If this is the case for you, I know you’ll likely have many questions. I’ll be there not only to answer your questions, but also to guide you through the process.
Frequently difficult matters arise concerning asset distribution, such as: what happens if a parent who owns a house dies without a will and more than one child will inherit the parent’s assets? I help personal representatives develop solutions and assist with agreements among heirs and beneficiaries. This helps to ensure as smooth a transition of assets as possible. I also advise personal representatives in the event that disagreements arise.
Throughout the probate process, as a probate attorney, I prepare the legal documents that may be necessary to make asset transfers, as well as filing the appropriate documents with the court. Please call me to learn how I can assist you if you are serving as an estate administrator.
I help clients through divorce, parenting time (formerly custody), child support, spousal support, and situations involving modifications to support or parenting time. As a Will County divorce lawyer, I serve clients through litigation or negotiating the terms of agreements related to these matters. If an acceptable resolution cannot be reached, I represent clients in court to secure the outcomes my clients desire.
If you’re facing the challenges only a divorce can bring, your focus should be on your family and your future – not on the legal aspects of these matters. Let me take the burden off your shoulders.
In addition to representing clients in matters associated with a divorce, I also assist clients about to get married in developing a prenuptial agreement that will protect them in the event of a divorce.
I am an avid shooter and have been for decades. Becoming an NRA Certified pistol instructor in 2017 was an achievement and honor. After that certification, I became a Concealed Carry instructor for Illinois. When I’m not in the office, or the courtroom, you will most likely find me honing my shooting skills or instructing people on the proper, safe use of firearms for sport and self-defense.
