Niles Probate Lawyer

Attorney Representing Executors and Administrators in Chicago

Probate is a court proceeding through which a person's debts are paid and assets are distributed upon his or her death. Estate administration includes the probate process as well as nonprobate transfers of the deceased's assets. To avoid legal problems during or after probate, it's important to have an experienced probate lawyer guide you through the process.

I am Jay A. Slutzky, attorney at law. From my office in Niles, Illinois, I help executors and administrators throughout Chicago and the north and northwest Chicago suburbs from the opening of the estate to the final distribution and closing.

I have more than 40 years of experience in the probate and administration of Illinois estates, preparation of federal and Illinois estate tax returns, clearance of titles to the deceased's real estate and personal property, and supervision of distribution of the deceased's assets to his or her heirs, beneficiaries and legatees. I work directly with executors and administrators to find and collect the deceased's assets, pay bills, minimize taxes and ensure that the deceased's assets are distributed correctly.

Many assets can be distributed directly to beneficiaries without the need for probate. Proper estate planning can eliminate the need for probate.
