Jeffrey and his staff helped set up wills and living wills for my late wife and me. My wife was very ill and these folks couldn't have been more helpful and accommodating given her deteriorating condition. Frank discussions were handled with great care. It wasn't long after our visit with Jeffrey that she lost her battle with cancer but because we had properly planned with him, resolving any post-death issues were made fairly simple. I heartily recommend Jeffrey and his team and thank them for their help and kindness.

He is extremely knowledgeable.
I did most of the leg work with the banks and retirement accounts would have been very expensive otherwise.

My wife and I set up a revocable family trust with Jeff Gottlieb. We started the process of deciding what estate planning lawyer to go to about a year ago. We set up meetings with Jeff and another law firm in the area. We felt that Jeff had the expertise and great attitude to put together a trust for us. He exhibited a great amount of patience with us as he translated legal terms in our trust to plain English! We're glad we finally moved ahead with his firm. We felt the price we paid for their services was fair.
Jeff's assistant, Kris, held our hands during the entire process. She wanted to be sure our documents were set up properly and that our assets were named properly to the trust. This office even filled out the paperwork to transfer most of our holdings to the trust. This is quite a process, so this help meant a lot to us.
It was a pleasure working with this firm.

Mr. Gottlieb provide excellent service and advice in probating my late sister's Last Will and Testament. I live outside the State of Illinois, so it was imperative that I hire an attorney with the knowledge and expertise pertaining to the estate laws of Illinois. Mr. Gottlieb was the right choice.

I contacted Jeff 4 years ago regarding a family estate matter. It involved an estate contest which most lawyers will discourage because of the unlikely outcome of a positive result. He was incredibly diligent in checking records, citing case law and investigate the options. He explained the process as it wound through the courts and kept me informed. His rate and time were reasonable and worth every penny. He is as good as any top law firm and can hold his own in front of any courtroom. I have nothing but praise for Jeff and his skills as legal counsel. I would highly recommend to anyone seeking estate planning advise.

My husband and I had New Year's resolutions to update our will and to create a trust for the first time. After all, we are in our early 60s--It was high on our priority list. We talked to many law offices and actually went through a preliminary meeting at a large, high-end firm in North Barrington. We were very surprised when this firm recommended we create documents way beyond our expectations. Plus, the added cost was beyond what we wanted to pay. I called Jeffrey Gottlieb's office (as well as other smaller firms) afterwards and then (with our busy lives), never followed through to make a decision. Weeks later, I received a phone call from a staff member at Jeffrey Gottlieb's office, not to pester us, but to let us know they hadn't forgotten about us. That impressed me and an appointment was set up to meet for an hour's appointment. My husband is very busy with his job and they were very accommodating to meet with us after hours.
We decided to have this office do the work for us. Kris and Laura were SUPER! It took time to get our financial paperwork in order and ensure we hadn't forgotten anything. They answered questions over the phone when I was unsure about something. Jeffrey Gottlieb and his staff handled the final signing of paperwork in a very professional manner. No "fluff" like the high-end Barrington office, but we didn't want to pay for fluff. It took almost a year to get this item off our checklist . . . but we have the most accurate, professional documents in a safe place, ready for our family when they are needed. Both my husband and I highly recommend Jeffrey Gottlieb and his wonderful, knowledgeable staff. We got all of the necessary paperwork done for a very reasonable price as well. Thanks Kris, Laura and Jeff!

We needed a Will & Trust and I'm so glad we went to Jeffrey Gottlieb. He and his staff were professional, well versed in the law, and focused on details. They provided quick service and clear documentation. We had been procrastinating our estate planning needs, but once we made the first phone call it was pretty fast and simple!

Jeff did a very professional job working with my wife and I regarding our trust work. He thoroughly explained in great detail the complete process and encouraged us to think about various scenarios which may arrive and plan accordingly. We were extremely satisfied and impressed.
