Elmhurst, Illinois Trusts and Estates Lawyer

The Law Offices of Ralph F. Tellefsen III provides their legal services to fiduciaries who have been charged with administering estates and trusts.  The administering of trusts and estates is as important as estate planning to the competent allocation of the family’s assets.  We oversee estates which include decedents’ estates and we also manage guardianship estates for minors or adults who are disabled.

With decedents’ estates, we help guide the fiduciaries through the probate process and help them with the transfer of assets, resolving any claims and help to implement the decedent’s plan for the estate.  In most cases, we will take care of the required state and federal estate and inheritance tax returns and we will collaborate with the estate’s accountants to make sure than any income tax matters related to the fiduciary are taken care of.

We represent an extensive range of clients for trusts and estates, including:

  • Banks, individuals, or trust companies who serve as executors and trustees
  • Business executives and investment fund managers
  • Charitable organizations
  • Entrepreneurs
  • Families
  • Investors
  • Owners of private businesses
  • Surviving spouses
