Kelleher & Buckley, LLC, an established law firm based in North Barrington will be hosting a free seminar on Estate Planning for local individuals. The event is scheduled for Thursday, October 11th, and will take place at the Kelleher & Buckley offices at 102 South Wynstone Park Drive.

"What Happens To Your Family When Something Happens to You?" will provide information on Estate Planning, Revocable Living Trusts, IRA Trusts, Gifting Strategies, and other options for safely protecting assets. There is no charge to attend the session but reservations are required as space is limited.

"Our firm has concentrated much of our practice on estate and business planning," said partner Andrew J. Kelleher, Jr. "There is a great deal of misinformation in the marketplace and considering the ever-changing laws in Illinois, now is a great time for people to take a look at how their finances and assets are protected in the event that something happens to them." The seminar will demonstrate that while a simple will is a commonly used instrument, it really only covers a portion of critical issues that a family may face upon the death or disability of a parent or spouse. An Estate Plan is a comprehensive set of documents that can serve to protect everything from investments and property to a family held business or even care for a special-needs child. Estate Plans are fluid and even if one has been established, it should be reviewed at least every few years, especially as family situations and financial conditions change.

Representatives of Kelleher & Buckley expect the seminar to be very open and encourage participants to come with questions. Said Kelleher, "This is not a lecture. We expect a lot of Q&A and want to address some of the common questions and misconceptions so we can help get people on the right path to protecting everything they have worked for."

Reservations may be made by calling Lisa Walter at 847-852-1182 or via e-mail at The October 11th seminar begins at 7:00 p.m. Information about the firm and its Estate Planning services can be found at
