Estate Planning

Over half of the people who die in our country die without a will or trust. Of those who die with a will and/or trust, many would have been better off to have died without that will or trust because it was written so poorly or was so out of date.

Having drafted over 10,000 estate plans over the last 30 years, DROBNY LAW OFFICES, INC. attorneys bring a level of knowledge and expertise which assures any client that no matter how unique they believe their particular situation to be, DROBNY LAW OFFICES, INC. has already successfully counseled others similarly situated.

Basic Estate Planning should include an Advance Health Care Directive, a Durable Power of Attorney for Financial Management, and a simple Will. What many do not realize is that even when a decedent passes with a valid will, his or her estate must still be probated if the estate includes any real property and/or more than $150,000 in assets. In that case, a Revocable Living Trust is required.

Unlike most attorneys who bill by the hour or percentage of a client’s estate, DROBNY LAW OFFICES, INC. prepares all estate plans on a flat fee basis. While some law firms purport to bill on a flat fee basis, DROBNY LAW OFFICES, INC.’s flat fee Estate Plans include:
