Expert Legal Counsel: Client-Centered Approach

As a former educator in business law and paralegal studies, he knows how to connect with people and is a natural at putting the client at ease and explaining even the most complicated legal aspects of a case in a straightforward, easy-to-understand way. Every like-minded member of our team shares this client-centered approach. Our lawyers are like that friend who makes a bad situation seem that much easier to go through, but watch out when he comes face to face with those messing with your rights and best interests.

Preparing For the Future with Estate Planning Services

When it comes to the future of your family, nothing gives you peace of mind like an estate plan. By making your wishes known in advance, you ensure that your assets are distributed according to your preferences rather than by a judge following the mandates of the Illinois Statute of Descent and Distribution. An estate-planning lawyer with us creates an estate plan with you that is perfect based on your assets, family details, and general life circumstances. The planning documents we help clients create include:

  • Wills
  • Revocable living trusts
  • Powers of attorney
  • Living wills
  • Transfer on Death Instruments (TODIs)
  • Small estate affidavits

Helping Clients Understand and Exercise Their Appellate Rights

If you or the other party in your case believes the trial court erred, the next step is to file a motion to reconsider the ruling. If the court corrects it’s prior decision, great. If the court does not change its ruling, the next remedy is to file a notice of appeal. The attorneys at Hanauer Law have extensive experience representing both the appealing parties and non-appealing parties on appeal. Rob Hanauer has successfully argued many appeals in the Illinois Supreme Court, the U.S. Court of Appeals, and the Illinois Appellate Court, even having trial court decisions reversed on appeal on a number of occasions. For experienced appellate advocacy, contact the team at Hanauer Law immediately to protect your rights on appeal.
