About Jeffrey

Learn Jeffrey’s areas of practice.

My law office in downtown Evanston is dedicated to serving elders and their families as they plan for legal concerns arising from aging and disability. I also help elders and their families face and address crisis situations when knowledge of a range of options and responses is vital. Elder Law is presently a dynamic and changing area of law, responding to our aging population and its attendant needs. I devote a great deal of time and financial resources to educating myself about the latest developments in Elder Law and Trust and Estate Law in order to provide up to the minute counsel on the latest legislative developments. Evanston is an outstanding community for elders and their families. It has a number of excellent organizations, businesses and community resources devoted to elders and it is a real pleasure to be a member of this community. Contact me if you have a legal question relating to Elder Law and Trust and Estate Law.

Personable, Caring and Professional
My sister and I worked with Jeff on my cousin's estate. She found Jeff shortly before she died and was seeking his assistance in writing a will and ensuring that her wishes were respected. Jeff worked with her so compassionately and with such care. Subsequent to her death, Jeff has worked with us to help us navigate the complexities of working with banks et al when utilizing a small estate affidavit. He has been highly responsive and helped us advocate for ourselves through his expert advice. I would rank him in the top 5% of attorneys with whom I have worked.

Excellent attorney who cares about people
I found Mr. Story on a website - I live in Texas but had a matter taking place in Evanston, IL and I needed legal assistance. I'm certain that Mr. Story is a busy man but he listened to my long, detailed issue. He asked questions - he was genuinely concerned and gave me excellent information so that I could move forward. It's so hard not being in the same state when you are trying to take care of an important matter. He took the time to walk this through with me and I was so grateful that I found him.

| Hired Attorney
I hired Jeffrey to help me navigate the paperwork for my mother’s Medicaid application. I was being 100% honest on the application, but I knew there were going to be things in our case that looked odd to the caseworker. How true this turned out to be. The application was ultimately approved, but it took nearly a year. In that terribly stressful time, through every additional set of document requests, I relied on Jeffrey’s advice and counsel. He kept me calm, focused, and on track. He knew when to push back when the requests were ridiculous, and when to seek additional advice when they were baffling. And through it all he never billed me for a single dollar more than the flat fee I paid up front. I highly recommend Jeffrey.

Will & Trust
Jeff executed a Will and Trust for my elderly mother. He gave us expert advice and helped my mother enormously with a contentious situation. We initially contacted Jeff because he specializes in legal affairs for the elderly and found his knowledge and sensitivity to issues most reassuring and helpful.
