Most people realize that establishing a will is one of the most important things they can do to make sure their family is provided for in the event of their passing. At the same time, setting aside the time to ensure they have a properly drafted will in place is something they continue to put off. When a person dies without a will, it is referred to as dying intestate, and the individual’s money and assets will be distributed to heirs by the probate court through the Illinois laws of intestacy. In some cases, these rules regarding distribution of your estate may coincide with your own wishes. In others, the people that you want to be provided for could be left out completely. By taking the first steps in creating or updating your will, you can ensure that your hard earned money and property is distributed to the people you care about most. At Sabuco, Beck, Hansen & Massino, P.C., our team of extensively trained and knowledgeable attorneys have over 125 years of combined experience ensuring their clients wishes are carried out through properly drafted legal documents that stand up in any court of law.
A trust is a legal document that allows a third party to hold assets on the behalf of named beneficiaries. As the grantor, or the person making the trust, you have the ability to name beneficiaries, which are the people or places that you want to benefit from the property being held in the trust. Created in accordance with the Illinois Trusts and Trustees Act, a trust is a way of transferring ownership to others prior to death. The trust holds your property or assets until a pre-determined time, such as upon your passing, or when the beneficiary reaches a certain age. Benefits of establishing a trust include:
You don’t have to have a lot of property or be wealthy in order to reap the benefits of establishing a trust. At Sabuco, Beck, Hansen & Massino, P.C., our attorneys often use trusts to achieve a variety of client objectives, including setting up education funds, or ensuring that money or property is left to charity.

Great attorney sure did a fantastic job on my divorce HIGHLY RECOMMEND
As it was a long road, the outcome was what it should have been. 50/50 should be the starting point of a divorce when kids are involved, not something parents should have to fight for. Thanks Sandy & Roy for everything!
There is not enough space to accurately give justice to the gratefulness I have for Mr. Sabuco and his staff. So let me just say – I am grateful for the small things, big things and everything in between.
