Wherever possible, Lawyer Cindy Hutchins seeks to resolve disputes between family matters in a way that preserves family relationships and avoids costly and protracted litigation. When litigation is required, however, Ms. Hutchins has the skill and experience to effectively and aggressively represent her clients in Court. She uses her extensive knowledge of Illinois law and estate planning practice to serve her clients’ objectives to the greatest extent possible.
Probate and Trust disputes can arise when questions are raised about:
- The authenticity of Will or Trust documents;

- Ambiguous language in estate planning documents;
- Exclusion of family members from inheritance;
