Amazing Chicago Estate Lawyer
I was spinning around in circles trying to get a specific answer for an estate issue for my elderly mom. I kept googling Best Chicago estate lawyer and called a few places that gave me evasive answers and were unable to tell me exactly what I needed. Somehow I stumbled upon Heather Voorn. She provided me with the candid and transparent answers I needed for my issue. But speaking with her was not just a quick consultation with an attorney. She was talking to me from a position of being a kind and caring human being above and beyond the legal nature of my situation. She was detailed, considerate, and spelled out what I can realistically expect and/or not expect. And this is exactly the kind of attorney that is rare to come by. I would highly recommend her to anyone in the Chicagoland area that needs a top estate and elder law attorney to handle simple and/or complex estate planning needs.
