Frequently Asked Questions

  • What does a typical estate plan include?

    A basic estate plan includes a will, a revocable trust, an assignment of tangible personal property to the trust, a power of attorney for property, a power of attorney for health care, and a living will (declaration).

  • What information should I bring to my initial meeting for estate planning?

    If you have existing estate planning documents, it is helpful to bring them to our first meeting. You should also think about whom you will choose to make financial decisions for you, whom you will choose to make health care decisions for you, and whom you will name as guardians for your minor children. Also consider to whom you would like your assets to be distributed after your death. We will send you a questionnaire when you schedule your appointment to help you gather this information.

  • What are your fees?

    We understand that no one likes to pay an attorney, and we strive to set our fees at a competitive and reasonable level. Many of our clients prefer flat-fee arrangements, and we are happy to offer that option whenever possible. Russo Law Offices LLC works hard to be upfront and transparent, which includes a candid discussion of projected fees and expenses at our first meeting. Our fee structure changes on a yearly basis, so please call 630-560-1010 or email our office and we will provide the current information to you.

  • What are your hours?

    Russo Law Offices LLC maintains regular business hours for appointments. We understand that you are busy, so we work hard to make your interaction with Russo Law Offices LLC as easy as possible. We offer meeting times on the weekends or evenings upon request, online appointment scheduling, video conferencing, online bill pay, and secure online document review.
