Why Choose The Law Offices of Michael Rada for Your Estate Planning Needs?

Estate Planning is My Primary Focus

As Estate Planning is a primary focus of my practice, I promise to deliver a customized set of documents that not only fit your exact needs, but also fit your budget. As an experienced estate planning attorney, I understand that these plans are not a "one size fits all" situation. Each individual or family has their own specific needs. I will do all that I can to work with you to understand those needs, share my insight and ides and collaborate with you to determine what package is right for YOUR needs. I will not try to sell you a plan or document that you don't need. My only interest is to give you the Right plan that fits YOUR individual needs.

Carefully Tailored Individualized Documents

When you hire The Law Offices of Michael Rada, you won't be getting "cookie-cutter" documents such as would be the case if you were to get your documents through one of the many online estate planning websites. With my firm, you will receive documents that are carefully tailored to meet your particular situation.


We are Efficient and Focused on Your Convenience

Most estate plans can be done with efficient telephone calls and email communications. Except in specific cases, there is no need to come to my office. However, if you prefer, I am more than happy to meet in my Barrington office, or at a location that is best for you.


A Simple Process

The process is simple. You will start by filling out an intake form that outlines all of the data needed to draft your estate plan documents. If more information is needed, a follow-on phone call is usually all that is needed. Once the draft documents are complete, you will have an opportunity to review them at your leisure and suggest any edits or changes needed.


Easy to Understand Pricing

You will not be charged for edits as all prices are fixed fee and determined before work begins.  Please view my price list here.


Convenient Document Signing Options

For signing your documents, there are several options. First, I can send you your final document packet with detailed instructions on how to execute. Then, you can sign the documents in the presence of your witnesses and notary public at your convenience. Many people do this at work, or with friends or neighbors.


Also, you and your witnesses can come to my office for the signing of the documents. Or, if needed, I am happy to meet you and your witnesses at a location in the North, Northwest or Western suburbs of Chicago. I routinely visit clients in their homes, nursing homes, assisted living facilities or in the hospital.
