Jerome, Salmi & Kopis, LLC – Law Firm in Fairview Heights, IL


Probate laws are extremely nuanced and complex. If a loved one has passed away and named you as the executor of their will, you may need help following all of the procedural rules to properly administer the estate. Likewise, probate courts also supervise the guardianship of disabled adults. Our firm may be able to help with both.

Likewise, with years of experience representing executors and guardians in court, we can also help you plan for the future to minimize the impacts of these court proceedings. Here are some common scenarios we have handled for clients:

  • Adult disabled guardianship cases for seniors with dementia
  • Probate estates
  • Will contests
  • Trust disputes
  • Fights over joint bank accounts and other family disputes between family members concerning probate or guardianship estates
  • Wills and trusts
  • Powers of attorney
  • Living wills
  • Other advanced planning instruments

Some attorneys handle estate planning as a primary practice area, focusing mostly on working with families that are looking to avoid probate. Other firms solely handle litigation. With years of experience handling both sides, we can help guide our clients through complex probate matters, while working to prepare planning tools to avoid future issues.
