With a Living Trust, Probate’s cost, stress, and time are avoided and

your estate is distributed quickly and privately according to your wishes.

Why You Need a Living Trust

SECURE & PROTECT Real State Property

Control Your Estate

Your most valuable assets are your home and investment property. You can ensure a private and timely transfer to your family or partners with a Living Trust. You can also determine at what age your beneficiaries inherit.

Avoid Probate Court

Your family should control your estate – not the court system. A Will and Probate can tie up your estate for years and cost your family thousands of dollars and prolonged suffering. You deserve better.

Protect Your Family

Protect Your Family

With a Living Trust, you can provide asset protection for your children or other beneficiaries, especially if they have creditors, a pending divorce, a lawsuit, or a disability.  You can also name guardians for your minor children.

Frequently asked questions

What is the difference between a Will and a Living Trust?

A Will must be filed in Probate Court and states your wishes for the distribution of your estate at your death. If you do not have a Will, the court controls distribution.

A Living Trust is private and establishes complete control and protection of your estate now and after your death.   Learn more

Why should Probate be avoided?

Probate is costly, it takes a long time, and because of the number of cases in the system, it is inefficient and burdens families. 

Probate requires a minimum six-month claims period. The entire process can tie up your estate for an average of 18 months or more and cost thousands of dollars.  Learn more

Does a Living Trust avoid Probate?

Yes. A properly drafted, signed, and fully funded Living Trust avoids the Probate process. Learn more

We had an awesome experience with Tuohy Law Office... Tom is a great attorney, wonderful, kind man, which is a rarity these days. Tom is very professional, patient and understanding. His staff is great and swift to help when needed. Make no mistake, if you found Tom, you've got a pearl.

Much easier than we thought. At first glance it seems overwhelming but Tom and his amazing staff have everything done after a few quick questions. With my wife and I both in law enforcement this had to be done to protect our child. What a great investment on his future!

Tuohy Law is the best place to go, in my case for setting up a living trust in Illinois. I have been thinking about it for a long time, but the firms I considered did not inspire confidence. A neighbor who retained Tuohy Law for similar work was happy to recommend Tom, and it’s a pleasure to give the firm a top rating. I had a great experience. Tom is a lawyer who inspires confidence and explains everything in plain English. Shelly, who runs the office, is very efficient and helpful. Both are friendly and put the client at ease. I was very satisfied with the whole experience.
