Understanding intestate succession

Despite the repeated suggestions offered by estate planning experts, many in Rockford are ill-prepared in regards to the issue of estate administration. Even something as simple as making a will is often overlooked. Indeed, study data shared by the American Association of Retired Persons shows that only four out of every 10 American adults has a will. Yet many may avoid preparing a will out of fear that their beneficiaries will be angered by their decisions. They may simply think it to be better to allow said beneficiaries to decide amongst themselves who gets what once they are gone. 

Business formation types that limit personal liability

Regardless of the nature of the type of business you are looking to establish in Illinois, you will find that there are areas involved in its operations that could potentially expose you to liability. For some types of businesses, such as those involving food service or transportation, the risks are relatively obvious, but virtually every type of business out there has at least a few areas where it might be at risk. At Howard & Hardyman LLP, we recognize that certain business structures can help protect you against personal liability, and we have helped many business owners create business structures well-suited to their needs.
