Probate is the court-supervised process of authenticating an individual's last will and testament after death. Whether or not an estate requires probate depends on many factors. Probate and all estate settlements are complex and often emotional, but an experienced attorney can help you navigate the process efficiently and objectively.

John Zelenka has spent three decades of experience navigating the Illinois Probate Act, as well as assisting clients to administer trusts or handle other decedent's matters that do not require Probate Court intervention. Attorney Zelenka can help you and your family or business follow the requisite steps to ensure a smooth transfer of assets and ownership. 

Even the simplest situations require an in-depth analysis of a decedents' assets, liabilities, taxes and beneficiaries. More complex matters often require expert advice, mediation or litigation.
