Friendly and knowledgeable
Working with Mollie has made managing guardianship of my disabled father easier on me and my family. She has been friendly, knowledgable and efficient every step of the way!

Estate Planning
I am 80 years old and met with Mollie Whitehead to update my Will as well as review my other Trust documents. I also wanted to have Powers of Attorney set up. Mollie was professional, knowledgeable and efficient. She provided a great analysis, answered my questions on estate planning & I agreed she should send me a draft of the items we agreed upon. That process took very little time & with a minimum of editing, we finalized & formally signed all the documents.

We recommend her for estate planning
Mollie provided all of the documents and expertise needed to complete our estate planning. We hired her to develop wills, healthcare power of attorneys, and business power of attorneys. She recommended me establish a family trust and provided all of the documents and took care of transferring our real estate to the trust. We found Molly to be very knowledgeable, thorough, and efficient. She answered all of our questions and provided clear explanations for all the documents. We wholeheartedly recommend her.

15 year Probate question
I consulted with Molly in regards to a probate case that is ongoing 15 years after it was filed. With some of the suggestions she made the case that has been stalled for 15 years maybe coming to a conclusion after getting tips or what to say to the probate attorney after he has avoided questions for 15 years only to say, it was nearing completion. If in 30 days we will hire this law firm, they are helpful and friendly.

First Class Attorney
I live in California and I was tasked with being the administrator of my cousin’s estate in Chicago. I was fortunate to find Mollie Whitehead to take the estate through probate. The process could not have gone more smoothly or efficiently. Mollie and the entire office staff were always pleasant and available to answer all of my questions. I recommend her without reservation and truly appreciate her professionalism and kindness.

excellent advice and service
Ms Whitehead provided advice for handling my trust and will. It was a simple and painless process. The completed documents were produced in a minimal amount of time with detailed instructions on how to store and retain them. I highly recommend her services.

Exceptional service, simple process
WhiteheadFink Elder Law did an exceptional job with helping my husband and I create our estate plan. We were behind the ball in finalizing our plans before the birth of our first child, and had no experience with this type of planning. Mollie and Elizabeth were helpful (and patient!) in walking us through the process, the decisions that needed to be made, providing information on how to make those decisions, and the steps we needed to take to have all of our paperwork in order. They made what could have been a difficult process painless, and because they walked us through the process so clearly, we trust that if something were to occur, our affairs are in order. They are clear, confident, compassionate, and smart - all qualifications that are important to us during the estate planning process and execution.
