Estate Planning Lawyer In The Northwest Suburbs

To many people, estate planning seems intimidating. However, a knowledgeable attorney can help you understand your options and establish a strong plan. At Michael R. Ek, Attorney at Law, I offer experienced, practical legal advice to people who want to make wise, informed decisions about their future health care, wealth and loved ones. I have more than 25 years of expensive as an estate planning attorney serving Schaumburg and the rest of the northwest suburbs.

Taking the time to plan gives you significant control over what happens to your assets. It can also help you avoid probate, potentially saving thousands of dollars, months of time and significant stress for your family.

I assist individuals with matters involving:

  • Wills and trusts
  • Advance directives, including living wills, powers of attorney for health care, and durable powers of attorney for property
  • Guardianship and special needs planning
  • Charitable planning

Estate Planning For Business Owners

I advise small-business owners about their estate planning options, focusing on asset protection strategies for both their personal and professional property.

I also provide business succession planning services to business owners and directors. Putting a strong succession plan into place can help ensure that your business continues to operate successfully even after your involvement ends.

Estate Administration And Probate

If your loved one developed an estate plan before passing away, it is clear that he or she cared deeply about the people he or she left behind and wanted to make sure they are taken care of. I help people administer the estates of loved ones they have lost, guiding them through the probate process when appropriate.

I understand that losing a loved one is incredibly difficult, and I am committed to providing compassionate advice and counsel to individuals and families affected by tragedy.
