Skilled Attorneys for
Estate Planning, Real Estate, and Eminent Domain Law
Estate Planning and Real Estate law can be complex for all parties involved. Oftentimes, there are emotions with parting with long time family investments, or hesitation on planning far ahead into the future with fear of the impending unknown. While the estate planning process can be daunting, we have seen over the past few years how uncontrollable life can be. Unfortunately, we can not determine everything that will occur in our lifetime. One thing that we can take a handle on though, is how we respond to anything that comes our way. Proper estate planning can be a fantastic first step in securing your long term legacy, and the prosperity of your family and loved ones over time. Especially for those in possession of high value real estate assets, business properties and more, it is important to determine how your investments will exist in space when you can no longer oversee them. Many see this type of preparation as a foreshadowing of the end of life, but establishing a living trust is rather simply a protection for all that you have built, and will continue to expand on while you are here. At Bassett & Gabriel Law Office, P.C, we understand the immense confidence and pride that our clients hold for cherishing their life’s work. Our legal team has years of experience, and a reputation that precedes us, with a long list of clients who have worked with us to dutifully craft an in depth plan for the delegation of their assets. This work is not always easy, but we feel confident in our ability to navigate even the most complex of scenarios. From the initial consultation until final signing, we make ourselves available for clients throughout the process. By providing legal advice from our wealth of knowledge to each and every client that we work with, we ensure confidence during what can be a period of major and life changing decision making. We are the go-to firm for individuals, families, businesses, and municipalities in Wood River, Madison County, and surrounding Illinois communities. We provide skilled representation from attorneys who have proven themselves in the complex practice areas of estate planning, real estate, and eminent domain.
