My husband and I worked with Zach to put together our family trust. We really enjoyed working with him. He answered all of our questions (my husband had a lot of questions) and never rushed us through any of the process. He explained everything very thoroughly and not in "legalese." His personality was friendly and approachable and he also was definitely very knowledgeable about building trust funds. He gave his opinion backed by information but always allowed for us to make the final decision. I would most definitely work with him again.

My wife and I recently engaged Zach's services after the birth of our first child for help in getting all of life's important documents (trust, will, powers of attorney) that are too easy to put off. Zach was amazing at explaining to two people with almost no knowledge of estate planning what all the different documents and options were that we had to help us choose what was best for our family. Zach was an absolute pleasure to work with and his firm was able to quickly and accurately help us with everything we needed. I would highly recommend Zach to my friends and family and anyone else looking for legal assistance for estate planning.

When we had our first child, it was time to start thinking about planning for how he would be taken care of, God forbid something happened to my wife & I. As an insurance & financial services agent, I had the life insurance and financial aspect covered. But planning what would be done with the financial and life insurance benefits, who would oversee how they would be dispersed to our son, what they could and could not be used for, was something we knew nothing about. Thankfully we had Zach to guide us through the process. Zach provided us with answers and recommendations for every scenario that we might face. Our families are provided with a detailed plan of exactly what we want done with our assets, leaving zero questions for them to worry about or decide without us. It feels good to know that we will not be leaving any financial burdens. My wife and I both left the appointment thoroughly impressed with Zach's knowledge of estate and trust planning. We feel so comfortable that our wishes for our son will be reality, whether we are here to see them or not. I would and have highly recommended Zach's services to my family and clients, who have also utilized him. It is a blessing to our family to have a friend and attorney like Zach, who we know places our best interests first.

The Chmielewski Family would like to thank Zach Hesselbaum of Law ElderLaw and his Law Team, especially Stephanie, for all of their help, efforts and the timely guidence that they had provided us regarding the sucessful Medicaid application approval document that we recently recieved from the State of Illinois on behalf of our Mother Angeline. It certaintly has been a great pleasure for my brother Edward and myself to work with Zach during this Medicaid application process. We would like to also thank Zach for all his patience and the continuing updates that he had provided us throughout this process as are extremely pleased with this negotiated outcome with the State.
In addition, we really apprecaited Zach's detailed explanations and the thoroughness in all the preparation and the follow-up provided by Stephanie that was required by the State.

Zach and the Law Elder Law team went above and beyond in helping my family during a very difficult time. Our Mother became very ill in a short time. Zach helped get all of her legal and financial affairs in order. Because our Mother was bedridden on a ventilator, Zach traveled to the nursing home in Barrington from Aurora to meet with Mom to explain and reassure her that all of her elder needs will be taken care of. Zach worked with us for 2 1/2 years, during that time I became very dependent on his advice. Zach never hesitated to return my calls or e-mails no matter how many questions I had for him and his staff. I never got the feeling that I was a bother to them. Sadly our Mom passed in August of 2012 which has ended our relationship for now. When the time comes for My husband and I to need legal advice and planing from a Elder Care Lawyer, I will not hesitate to seek council from Zach Hasselbaum and the Law Elder Law team.
From a very satisfied client,

We came to Zach for help getting our affairs in order since I retired. He was so helpful, and kind through the whole process. He guided me through exactly what needed to be done, and made it such a smooth process - I really appreciated that. My wife and I would recommend Zach to anyone in a heart beat! He put our minds at ease about our future.

My widowed mother has Alzheimer disease. I was truly at a loss of what to do with her estate. Then, I met Zach. He explained all my options and helped guide me in the estate planning for her. I didn't have a clue what was available or how to help my family through such an overwhelming task. Zach made it all so easy. He held my family's hand through every stage. He was there for me in many aspects as he guided us through all paperwork and legal documentation. Even when I'd email him at the oddest hours, he was quick to reply. And what a confidence builder. I truly don't know what I would have done without him. He is very approachable, easy to speak with, attentive and an all around wonderful person. He took the stress out of the entire process. We will all come to a point in life where our parents will need our help to make sure they live their golden years comfortably. I worried about how I was going to do this, I didn't want her ending up in a horrible place that just ate up the money. Zach helped my family plan for all her needs. She's happy, we are grateful. I can never thank him enough for all he has done for my family. If you want the best for your loved one, you need to speak with this attorney. You won't find a more professional, impressive and well versed attorney as Zach. I've recommend him to many of my friends in the same situation. I promise, you won't be disappointed.
Very Truly Yours,

Zach worked with us to establish our family trust and continues to advise us on a regular basis. He is extremely knowledgeable and easy to work with. He is careful to make certain that we understand our options and the impacts regarding our decisions. He always demonstrates a caring attitude and is always prompt in responding to phone calls and emails. We place a high degree of trust in the advice Zach gives us. I would not hesitate to recommend Zach to my closest friends and family.

Zach Hesselbaum provided elder law services to my mother and my family regarding setting up a will and trust for mom, the application process for the VA aide and attendance benefits for Mom (that we had no idea was available to her), as well as assistance with applying for Medicaid. Zach responded to my many questions in a very prompt and professional manner. After my mother's death, Zach provided the advice and direction our family needed, again with great professionalism and fairness.
I highly recommend Zach for assistance with any elder law matters. Not only is he knowledgeable; he is also patient and caring. We felt very comfortable having Zach handle everything.
