by | Mar 5, 2024 | Estate and Elder Litigation

At Edwards Group: Estate Planning & Elder Law, we are committed to providing the estate planning and elder law support you need — tailored to the unique needs of our clients and their families.

We are pleased to announce that we have expanded our practice areas to include estate dispute litigation, adult guardianship litigation, and elder law litigation, including suspected financial exploitation and elder abuse.

How Estate and Elder Litigation Might Impact You

As families change and grow, so do their legal needs. Our expansion into estate and elder litigation recognizes this fact. In recent years, we have received more and more calls involving litigation that we had to refer out. With the addition of this practice area, we can now help even more families in Central Illinois receive the help they need regarding sensitive estate planning and elder law issues.

  • Estate dispute litigation can resolve disputes about wills and trusts and ensure that the wishes of your loved ones are honored with dignity and fairness.
  • In handling adult guardianship matters, we aim to safeguard the well-being and rights of those who can no longer care for themselves.
  • Furthermore, our dedicated focus on elder law issues like financial exploitation and elder abuse is designed to protect the most vulnerable among us, ensuring they live their golden years with respect and security.
