He was there
He answered every question and we felt at ease with him and his staff. We left his office feeling that a load was lifted from our shoulders. We thank you for that.

Positive experience
I chose Correa law firm because he doesn't dabble in various areas of law but focuses on estate planning. I also didn't want the hassle of going downtown and dealing with parking. I read a positive review that spoke of their experience dealing with their mother's estate and I felt comfortable contacting him. Mr. Correa is knowledgable and explains and sometimes double explains so that we understood what every document meant. He was diplomatic and thorough when explaining the procedure to our adult children. His staff knows who you are and communication is prompt.

Elder Law Help
Attorney Mario Correa helped my Grandparents draft an estate plan that prevented them from losing everything they worked hard for (their house, etc.) by giving them sound estate planning advice prior to them needing to go into a nursing home. His expertise helped our family.

Great Service!
My family used Mario for setting up our estate plan and he was very helpful with setting up everything and the cost was very reasonable. He is very knowledgeable and was good at explaining everything.

Helpful
I handle personal injury cases and on occasion need help with probate matters concerning appointment of administrators for an estate or with distribution of proceeds from the case. Mario is always there to maneuver through those complexities, helping my cases go smoothly.

Estate planning Attorney | Sep 08

"Mario is a great lawyer with a good heart. His focus on estate planning is thorough and he always takes time to listen so that he truly understands you and your family's needs."
Estate planning Attorney | Sep 06
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Mario prepared estate plans for me and several members of my family. Where other attorneys' work ended with the drafting of our intentions via a will, Mario took the extra step to help our estates avoid probate court where possible. Mario's tax background complements his estate planning expertise and was a compelling reason to retain him. I endorse Mario for estate and trust planning."
Trusts Attorney | Sep 01
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I endorse this lawyer. Mario is a very nice, caring estate planner. His bilingual and cultural skills allow him to serve the Hispanic community in Chicago, which is a big plus for this community.
