Understanding Wills: Preserving Your Final Wishes

A last will and testament, commonly known as a will, is a legal document that outlines how your assets and final affairs will be handled after your passing. This includes specifying who will receive your property, appointing guardians for minor children, and addressing any outstanding debts or obligations. Probate, the legal process of distributing your assets according to your will, is typically required after your death.

In addition to a will, it’s essential to have a medical power of attorney in place. This document allows you to designate a trusted individual to make healthcare decisions on your behalf if you become incapacitated. Furthermore, a living will provides guidance to your family and healthcare providers regarding end-of-life medical decisions when you are unable to communicate your wishes. Our experienced Rockford wills lawyer will be able to help ensure you have everything you need put in place before a need arises.

Exploring Trusts: Empowering Your Loved Ones

Trusts establish a fiduciary relationship in which you grant another party, known as the trustee, the authority to manage and distribute your assets in accordance with your instructions. One of the primary advantages of utilizing a trust is that it can help bypass the probate process, which can be time-consuming and expensive.

Revocable living trusts are particularly popular because they allow you to retain control over your assets during your lifetime while specifying how they should be managed and distributed after your passing. However, various types of trusts exist, and choosing the right one for your unique circumstances requires the guidance of an experienced wills and trusts attorney in Rockford, IL like Mark Brynteson.

Client Testimonials

I have known Mr. Brynteson for many years. I first met him in a social setting at a men's prayer group, then later had the privilege to use him professionally on several occasions. Mr. Brynteson has set up two non-profit corporations that I am a part of in record time. His competence, speed of action and knowledge in the area was astounding! I believe that Mr. Brynteson has the integrity that he would not take on any case in which he feels he could not do an exceptional job for his client. I certainly could recommend this gentlemen and am privileged to publicly give him a 5 star rating.

— Dr. Jacob Caraotta

When I finally called Mark Brynteson after being mired in a nasty situation for several months, Mark immediately took charge and directed every reponse on my part. He explained the problems clearly from a legal standpoint and also provided options when they were available. One day when I was quite sick and flat on my back, Mark called to follow up on a problem. When he finished, he said, "Today I'm not on the clock". Under the circumstances, that consideration was highly appreciated.

— Len Salvig

We have found Mark Brynteson to give both informed and researched advice. After using several different lawyers, we now go directly to Mark for our legal issues. Having had such a good experience I would highly recommend his services. We will continue to rely on Mark for all of our future legal needs.
