Power of Attorney

The Illinois Electronic Commerce Security Act authorizes the use of virtual signings for your important estate plan, Living Trust, Health Care Power and Financial Power of Attorney documents. All documents can be delivered to you and you can sign in the comfort and safety of your home, via electronic conference. We are authorized to supply all witnesses and notary. Of course, you are always welcome to sign your documents in the traditional way, in person, in our Oakbrook Terrace offices.
