Hi S.!

I would like to recommend Colby Green. He recently did our wills and power of attorney for healthcare, and he also specializes in estate planning. He lives in River Forest and is the very involved dad of 4 boys. He is fantastic! He came to our home in the evening, which was so convenient for us, since we could meet with him after our kids went to bed. He runs his own solo practice out of his home so he will meet with you where and when you need him. He is also very reasonably priced.

You can reach Colby at ###-###-#### or ____@____.com

We used Kuhn Law on Jefferson in Naperville to setup our trust for the kids. The phone number is 630/355-1700 and ask for Amy Kain. She was wonderful and explained everything to us in detail (she specializes in trusts and wills). Good luck!

S., I have a friend who is an attorney and lives in Westmont. Her email is
____@____.com
I don't know about the estate planning, but she did my will. If you are interested in retirement and other financial planning, I'd highly recommend someone with whom I've worked for several years. He works for MetLife and has an office out there. I think they used to be in Downers Grove. His name is Howard Rein, and his cell number is ###-###-####.
By all means tell either of them that I recommended you.
Good luck and hope these ideas work.

I have been doing landscaping for an estate planning attorney for over 2 years now. She is very generous, goes to bat for the underdog, and very busy. She is in Hinsdale.
